“Black Dog Tavern...Vineyard Haven!”
Review of The Black Dog

The Black Dog
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: A trip to the Vineyard is not complete without a visit to this popular gift shop, restaurant and bakery, known for its seemingly ubiquitous T-shirt. The creation of Captain Robert Douglas, a retired air force jet fighter pilot, the 30-year-old Black Dog Tavern has a simple decor, fresh local fish and vegetables daily and crowds in-season. There are four locations on the island.

“Black Dog Tavern...Vineyard Haven!”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Iconic beachfront dining establishment. Lots of seafood. Ask for Jackie as your waitress. EXCELLENT!!!! Good chowder, superb Reuben. Yes I know....beachfront, New England and order a Reuben. Seafood is everywhere...good Reubens are not.
Only negative comment, waitress in section across from us....swept lunch crumbs/remmenants onto the floor versus cleaning up....leaving that task to the busy hostess. And do try the Offshore IPA...recommended by Jackie. SUPERB!

“a black dog is a must”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Great gear, very pricey, because it's trendy. But ya' gotta own at least one! Unfortunately for my daughter they were sold out of every size small purple T or polo type they had in stock at three locations.

“Black Dog Tavern in Vineyard Haven--yum!”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We love the Black Dog...always have. I had some great mussels there and a delicious turkey club sandwich. Outdoor seating is nice. Most of the souvenir shops with Black Dog merchandise are all right near the restaurant.
