The Lobster Roll at Lookout Tavern was the best ....ever!! That says a lot since we live full time on the Cape! Lobster was sweet and roll served on was huge and chuck full of lobster! Roll was not the usual "hot dog bun" this one was soft and sweet. So very good and served with homemade chips. Highly recommend... More

I had three lobstah rolls last weekend! My final one was a take-out after I parked my car in the line for the ferry. Very generous portions, although $30. Worth every penny!

I had a hot lobster roll, husband had a hamburger. Both were delicious. The thick potato chips were really good. The view was perfect looking out over the ocean. Waitstaff was very friendly. In and out in under 45 minutes.

Loud and crowded, but the view is great and the chowder is excellent. I went off season, don't know if I'd go in the summer due to the crowds. Worth a visit and don't miss the chowder.

I went to Martha's Vineyard for 1 night for business. There really wasn't any place that offered reasonable prices and reservations. We ended up at the Lookout Tavern because of positive reviews and a short wait. I had the pulled pork sandwich with fries and a couple craft beers from draught. My friend ate the Salmon BLT. Both the hostesses... More

Next to the beach and had excellent food. While Gordon Ramsey would disprove of the extensive menu, everything we ordered was done well and we will eat there again. Service was also excellent!

Was here with five couples. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and food. People were friendly and it was a good place to relax and have some drinks.

We were able to get a seat that faced out to the harbor on the porch. The menu has a lot of options (I would recommend the fish tacos or pulled pork tacos). It can be kind of loud, because there are a lot of TV's with sports games on, but it is a nice spot. Reasonably priced too.

Nothing special. Just ok...uncomfortable seating on high bar stools. Wanted a relaxing "real" meal, this was not the place.
