This is a great place to have lunch. Overlooks the harbor and has a great bar. The lobster roll is enormous! And a very good selection of beers on tap.

Recommended by our tour guide and it didn't disappoint. The setting is wonderful, directly on the waterfront in the lovely little town of Edgartown. We managed to get a seat outside at the side, overlooking the harbour and the shimmering water. Perfect. Food was served...More

I think they take reservations if you call- it might be party of 6 or more. It usually not a long wait.
