We had a nice lunch here. The location is great with nice water views. The food was tasty, and there is a big menu, but not outstanding. Still a good spot for a casual lunch on the water.

Stopped in for lunch after reading other great reviews. It was very busy, was told it would be a 35 minute wait for a table outside. We only waited about 20 minutes. Friendly waitstaff. Loved the fish tacos!

Multiple recommendations we decided to check out Lookout Tavern in Oak Bluffs. A total beach spot-delicious food-great service. I would stick with beer or a beachy drink, not a place for wine. Excellent sushi. Only negative so crazy busy you need to expect a wait.
