The Lookout Tavern is an Oak Bluffs favorite. Although the seating is limited and parking can be difficult, the food is very good and filling. Our favorites include the raw bar, clam chowder, shrimp spring rolls, Cobb salad and surf and turf burger.

We visited this place on a Saturday evening, in part because it was still open after Columbus Day and we had limited options. It's right across the street from the water, so the view can't be beat. Despite it being crowded, we were seated right...More
