Fodor's Review

It's all fresh and crisp inside this homey tavern, with white linen tablecloths covered in brown butcher paper; when the sun sets and the candles are lighted, it's a lovely spot for dinner. Arrive at 4 for the daily raw bar happy hour (in summer), or start with the fried fresh squid with chili lime viniagrette. Favorite dinner entrées include local scallops, bluefish, or fluke; there are also tasty organic meat options. It's a busy and lively place. Don't forget that it's strictly BYOB—regulars have their own personal liquor lockers for storing their dinner spirits, since Chilmark is a dry town. A special perk is the free Menemsha Harbor pickup: come by boat, and they'll get you here and back to the pier.
