Service was disappointing. Poor location for our table, no silverware, slow and pushy. In a rush for you to pay. Not likely to go back.

Best Lobster meal. Price was great, service by our waitress Lindsey was exceptional and the manager Louis was great as well. We are going back this week. If you are in Martha's Vineyards make this one of your stops.

A good spot to sit and have a drink but the fish that I had was, I think, frozen as it was smelly and not up to what I call fresh fish! Not to the standards that it should be, so you can give it...More
