Very nice and historic tavern on the beach. Ate lunch there two times. Clam chowder was the best. Wait staff was friendly. Close to our BandB and very convenient.

Basic local tavern atmosphere with excellent unique menue. Wife had the Lobster Casadia while I tried to bite a Black Dog Blackened Burger. We deemed both excellent choices. It was off season and no wait early afrenoon.

Enjoyed a very good lunch at the Black Dog Tavern. Probably the hottest tourist destination of all the restaurants in Vineyard Haven but they deliver on quality and good, efficient service.

The lobster roll was great and my wife's comment on the salmon " the best she has ever eaten". That is quite a testimonial. Too bad we didn't return the second night however it was out of our hands.

Great breakfast with many choices, and great homemade hash. And oh, what a view of the Vineyard Haven harbor. Literally steps from the water. Great food, great atmosphere.

The view is great. The service was good. The swordfish was also very good. However, the tuna was stringy. Also, the chowder is only average (a real disappointment after reading other reviews). Much better chowder at the Fish Monger in Woods Hole.

We enjoyed a very good breakfast this past weekend. The house made sausage was very tasty and great quality but I ended up adding a little salt to it. The fish cake eggs Benedict was tremendous. Would definitely recommend the tavern. The view of Vineyard...More

That's a question best determined either by calling the joint directly or checking its website. I avoided that problem by going there for lunch.

I can't answer your question because I don't remember, but, in case you happen to get to Edgartown, there's a great breakfast/lunch place with a nice outdoor patio you can bring your dog, we did, called Rosewater. Order at... More
