My girl and I stopped here for dinner one evening and enjoyed margaritas and mussels in a white wine sauce. Our dinner was enjoyable. The restaurant is not easily found from the street as it is located on the waterfront. This provides a real "Martha's Vineyard" experience to dine and view the boat docked alongside.

We were on MV for a weekend beer festival. Dinner was pricey but worth the price tag. We had oysters, bisque, seafood tacos- tune and the lobster. A couple of cocktails . It was September which is considered off season so we were lucky to avoid a wait but I imagine in season on a Friday it's crowded. The bar... More

We're from Delaware and can get great Blue crab all of the time, so we know to go for the local feature when traveling and were not disappointed in the Lobster rolls in Martha's vineyard-and thought Fishbones had one of the best. The rolls are toasted with a little butter, and the HOT lobster is sauted in butter and full... More

Stopped here at Fishbones for lunch after Tivoli Day shopping & touring. Of course every place harbor side was mobbed so we expected a wait for a table. Not the case as we were seated in minutes & the waitress was there with our menus & a smile. Definitely a fun crowd, even at lunch time. 2 cups of clam... More

Wow. My dinner of scallops, no fries and coleslaw substitute was more than expected! The mudslide is not what I expected (mixer with the alcohol) but we take the "less" for the "more". Scallops we're perfectly cooked and the coleslaw sub for fries was more than expected. Really enjoyed my visit!

Really enjoyed having drinks and an appetizer here. The amount of food served was amazing and the drinks were great. The prices were reasonable on what is usually a very pricey island. The staff was sweet and efficient. I highly recommend stopping by.

Fish bones is right on the harbor in Oak Bluffs. It's a great place to sit and watch the boats come and go. Nicole and Dennis are our favorite bartenders and always make us feel welcome.

Their reasonably priced menu of summer staples should hit the spot for tourists and families in search of a sun-splashed meal by the sea. But I go for the bar. It is there that I can watch Dorrie, Dennis and Lisa marvel the diverse crowd with feats of mixology. A perfect sunset spot that's less touristy than Nancy's and tends... More
