We had a great dinner. The fried clams were soo good, The shrimp cocktails were also delicious. Loved the deck. The staff was very good and it was very busy. You cannot go wrong with lobster. The drinks were okay. The beer seleciont is good.

My wife and I enjoy the Lookout Tavern as often as possible! The restaurant has a big porch looking over Vineyard Sound and the entrance to Oak Bluffs harbor. The atmosphere is busy with travelers from all over enjoying food and drinks. The pace is always busy in the Tavern and a wait is usual, but the turnover is usually quick.
The menu is quite large and the sushi is made fresh by their own sushi chefs at a separate station and is fun to watch the chefs put together all their creations right in front of you! The location is right across the street from the ferry docks, so if you have a little time stop here before heading back to the mainland. The waitstaff is very efficient and Mike our waiter is a seasoned veteran and gets you in and out quickly.
Off-season the wait is much better and the views are outstanding. The menu is extensive and has something for everyone's taste, and the frozen drinks and martinis are great. If your lucky you will get a seat at the front railing for a birds eye view of this active waterfront scene. If you don't mind a crowd it is worth the wait!!

We had dinner here but there was a wait. All tables inside are high topped table and chairs which for me are not comfortable to sit in for long periods of time. But I managed. I had the fish tacos which were really good. It's a loud sports bar atmosphere if you are looking for a lively place. This is definitely it. It rained while we were having dinner so I'm happy we didn't take the picnic table seats outside that they had offered. All in all a good experience.

We had a great time at Lookout Tavern. The seafood was terrific, Our server (Susan) was on top of everything, scrambling from table to table with remarkable precision and a friendly smile. This place is busy and the patrons were in a festive mood. I suspect it's like this all the time. The fresh-shucked oysters were excellent. We were heading back to "the mainland" and this was a perfect spot to enjoy some seafood and a"couple of beers" before catching the ferry. Check it out!
