Went here with some friends was ordering lunch a scampi plate and I asked about no scallions and the waitress said let me check? She came back and said sorry the meals are pre made so you can’t take anything out. Bye bye we left

Now closed for the season, but next summer, this is a hot spot. Fantastic view of the harbor and the boats coming in and out. Food is very good and the service is good as well. We always enjoy coming here!

This restaurant sits on the Edgartown harbor, facing Chappaquiddick isand. There are boats and birds galore. The menu is extensive, with an emphasis on seafood. The lobster special is always a good deal.

This is a basic quick eats place. They serve one of the best lobster rolls we had on this New England trip (we had quite a few at other establishments). Nothing fancy, just good food!

We stopped for lunch during our time of sightseeing in Edgartown. At the recommendation of our guide, we tried the lobster quesadilla with mango salsa. Loaded with big chunks of lobster. SO good. What a treat. Lovely view of the harbor while we ate.

Hi Christina, We serve lunch from 11 A.M. until 5 P.M. but almost everything you can get at lunch is also available at dinner as well. And if there is anything you see from the lunch menu that isn't on the dinner menu feel... More

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