The Gastronomical Gamut

From take-out cafes along the harbors to bistros and restaurants, Martha’s Vineyard really has something for everybody. We can get you from soup to nuts, which on this Island is more likely from Katama oysters to Beetlebung field greens to West Tisbury lamb, to Menemsha lobster, to Oak Bluffs beer, to Chilmark Chocolates to . . . you get the picture.

Good to know:

Chilmark is the only town where you can BYOB. West Tisbury serves beer and wine and Tisbury recently passed liquor sales in restaurants. There’s plenty of seafood available on Martha’s Vineyard, from local lobsters and fish, and ethnic eateries such as Thai, Southern BBQ, and Italian just to name a few. And take note of the different menus: Many feature locally grown, caught, or harvested produce, seafood, and meat.

Restaurants & Bars

Whether it’s family or fine dining on your mind, there are plenty of spots to enjoy indoor air conditioning or the view from the patio.

Takeout & Sandwiches

Don’t let the words “Take Out” make you think we’re talking about fast food. Our options for take out/picnic food/sunset at Menemsha food are as varied as our towns and our topography.

Groceries & Farmstands

Full house, empty fridge? Stock up at the big grocers, the local markets, or a farmstand, which seem to be around just about every corner.

Coffee & Sweets

Caffeine craving? Sweet tooth? Go ahead and indulge yourself with a latte, smoothie, frozen yogurt, or ice cream. And don’t even get us started on Island baked goods…
