Go here for reasonably food (menu is very limited), reasonably priced (a tad high) but a ton of fun when live bands are playing. Be sure to factor in a LONG wait for a table in busy summer days, but food is worth wait. Grab some friends and go cut the carpet here. Lots of night time fun with local... More

My mom and I loved this restaurant. We ate here two nights in a row. The atmosphere is extremely pleasant (can be a bit noisy though). I loved the decor and the set up of half bar and half restaurant. The food and service were world class!!!

A friend recommended we try the Port Hunter on a recent trip to MV and I am so glad that we did. The cocktails are inventive and beautifully presented, by the super friendly bar staff. The food is inventive and fun - I cannot recommend the buffalo brussel sprouts enough - I could have eaten them all night. On Friday... More

Great foodie experience. Our server was polite, well-informed about the menu and overall, very fun to interact with. Our two dinners were very good and we split the house special dessert, key-lime pie that was outstanding. A very enjoyable evening.

We went in for the bluefish special but ended up ordering the fish tacos because so many people told us how good they were. We weren't disappointed. However, I didn't like my dark and stormy---filled with lime juice.

I have a feeling if I go here again now that I understand what type of spot it is, I'd like it much more. It's a loud and lively bar & restaurant. The menu is not typical in its offerings - which is good in many ways. There is entertainment later in the evening and the crowd can get a... More

We ran to the Port Hunter from our Air BNB's recommendation. She said people come from "all over" just to hang out here now! They have great live music and a mix of up and coming eclectic music. The drinks are Amazzzing! I did the purple rain and it really was a one of a kind cocktail. Had a few... More

Recommended by the staff at The Christopher. We are here twice for dinner on a 4 day trip to Edgartown. Great food and atmosphere. They serve large portions, so come hungry or share.
