I had the filet and brought vodka for mixed drinks. I had the suggested basil martini, and it was incredible. I started with the bread and ended with the espresso doughnuts! Definitely hit up this restaurant when you’re in Chilmark!

It was a rainy day but still was able to enjoy the ocean view and great food. We got lobster rolls and a Bloody Mary which were both delicious! And, they are baby friendly!

Food was ok but overprice as 17 bucks for a burger and 70 bucks for a family of four for lunch is pretty pricey even on an island.

Restaurants with views like this one often don't have great food, but the food at Lookout Tavern was very good! The waitress was flexible with order adjustments, and the bloody mary came with two HUGE shrimp. There was a wait, but they take your phone...More

No we do not take reservations. You can download the No Wait app and put your name in for a table . This app is not a reservation app it just helps you see how long of a wait it is .
