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.
