This is a great place to have lunch. Overlooks the harbor and has a great bar. The lobster roll is enormous! And a very good selection of beers on tap.

I had found this place on TripAdvisor and wanted to eat here when my wife and I were on a day trip to the island. We didn't have much time to get lunch so couldn't really explore the menu. I had a bowl of clam...More

Recommended by our tour guide and it didn't disappoint. The setting is wonderful, directly on the waterfront in the lovely little town of Edgartown. We managed to get a seat outside at the side, overlooking the harbour and the shimmering water. Perfect. Food was served...More

Hi Christina, We serve lunch from 11 A.M. until 5 P.M. but almost everything you can get at lunch is also available at dinner as well. And if there is anything you see from the lunch menu that isn't on the dinner menu feel... More
