Black Dog Café

A more sedate version of its big brother, the wildly popular Black Dog Tavern, the café version of this island icon exudes a warmer, less manic atmosphere. This is a good choice for a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner, and it is a relaxed spot where you can read the newspaper. You are more likely to mingle with locals here than at other places, though many of them might stay away during summer months. For breakfast, the café serves hearty French toast and egg dishes. For lunch, try the unique sandwiches, pizzas and pastas. Black Dog offers nightly dinner specials, too.

Black Dog Tavern

A visit to Martha's Vineyard is not complete without stopping at the popular Black Dog Tavern, if only so you can say you have been. This simply decorated restaurant has pine floors and old beams, and its wooden tables are packed pretty tightly together. This place is not for the claustrophobic, nor for the diner needing a quick meal, especially in-season when the wait for a table is an hour at the minimum. The main menu items are fresh fish and vegetables, each from local sources. You can bring your own wine or beer.

Coop De Ville

This seaside restaurant has been rated the best family restaurant on the island and the best outdoor dining spot. Feast on fish and chips or splurge with the steamed island lobster, said to be the best-priced lobster on Martha's Vineyard. The setting is casual and an outdoor patio is open when the sun shines. While you relax and enjoy the spectacular view, the children will be entertained by passing boats and jumbo hot dogs.

Newes from America Pub

The readers of the Vineyard Gazette have named the Newes the best bar and pub on the island. The nautical theme brings you back to the 1700s and the charm of seafaring days. The room is dark and the main lighting source is the lanterns and the fireplace. The menu includes typical pub fare: tasty burgers, French fries, chicken wings and other appetizers abound. A friendly staff is willing to help you decide from the long list of microbrews and wine offerings on offer. This place gets quite crowded and children are welcome. Located next to the beautiful Kelley House.
