We had a take out dinner following a long day on Martha's Vineyard. Service was very fast. Staff was very friendly. Although we did not try it the locals recommend the One-Pound Lobster Roll. Reasonably priced GOOD seafood.

If you like fried scallops, this the place! Definitely a locals eatery. Quick service style where you walk up to the counter to order but there is plenty of seating.

The Original is not really a shack but the food is what you would expect in a classic seashore clam shack. Excellent fried and broiled seafood at relatively reasonable prices. I think the best deal is the fried haddock sandwich at $5.99. A nice, large,...More

This used to be one of my favorite places but it's no big deal now. They don't give you much for your money.

We usually visit here yearly while on vacation but I have to say I was very disappointed this year. Maybe it was because they were too busy this time but we waited for 50 minutes for 4 meals, 2 fried clam & fish & chips...More

This place gets my vite for a quick casual seafood dinner. I was also happy about the beer list. The fried seafood platter was excellent. I like that they don't overdo the batter. The Lobster bomb was to die for.
