“New Owner and Menu Summer of 2014”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Disregard the food-related information prior to July 2014, the place changed hands this year and only the sign and location is the same, new furniture, new chef and staff and new menu. Same great location. After few hiccups the first couple of weeks the place is running just fine with an interesting menu that is Caribbean influenced. I like the drinks and the fish tacos (I wish SOMEONE around here made fish tacos with crisp tortillas..what is it New England??) But the fish is fresh and the topping wonderful. I have now been there 4 times with others and everyone has been happy with their food.

I think it is the most relaxing place on the dock..great bartenders too.

“Perfect Oysters & Beer by the Sea”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

On a recent trip to Martha's Vineyard, waited for the Ferry home in casual island style. Local brews on tap, and fresh seafood bar made the waiting a pleasure. The atmosphere was friendly and upbeat. I will come back to this place again and again!

“Good food with great harbour views”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

Walked along the harbour looking for somewhere to eat in the shade but overlooking the harbour. This place fitted the bill.
Friendly staff, I had lobster croissant with curly fries, rest had cheeseburger. Service very quick.
Good place for family lunch.

“Great spot after Fishing”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

3 of us chartered a boat from the docks in front of Fishbones, Came back with a bunch of Sea Bass. After the mate cleaned the fish for us we took our catch to Fishbones. We asked if they would cook our fish for us. Which they did. They did a fish and chips basket for us. Well you cant get much fresher than that. We had a great lunch, cold beers, great company, and a great view. Cant wait to do it again, hopefully next time it will be Striped Bass insted.
