We had lunch here and all of our meals were delicious and freshly prepared. The view is great, especially on a nice day.

This place has a great view of Oaks Bluff and front row view of all the people watching. All of the seafood was fresh and tasty. I had the paradise chicken sandwich, which was outstanding. The service was good, and the ambiance was the best.

We had a great dinner at the bar before ferrying back to Woods Hole. Great oysters and sushi. Bar staff was attentive and very friendly. A lovely evening!

We really enjoyed the food at the lookout tavern. We ate there three times during our stay on the island. The fried clams for some of the best we have ever had. The steak on the skewer was so good we bought some to take home.

It's so difficult to find exciting vegan food. One gets tired of salad at every restaurant. I'm happy to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the best burger cooked to my spec. It was delicious. My non-vegan daughter loved her cypress burger. I will absolutely stop in again.

Everyone, and I mean everyone claims to have the best lobster rolls. I spent two weeks wondering around New England and have to say by far, there wasn't even a close second....BEST LOBSTER ROLLS!
