Basically, any fresh sea food from quayhog to clams to lobsters to fish. It's all very good. Seating was limited but that didn't affect the vibes. A bit pricey but absolutely worth it. A fisherman brought in some lobster whilst we were eating. Worth the visit!

If you like seafood and you haven't eaten at Larsen's Fish Market then you're missing out!! There is not and will never be better lobster bisque or clam chowder anywhere!!

We enjoyed lunch here on our last day on Martha's Vineyard in September of 2016 and wished that we had come here on our first day. On our next trip to MV, this will be our first ands most frequent stop. The food was fresh and delightfully prepared. After placing our order inside, we ate outside on overturned crates while...

Whenever we visit Martha's Vineyard an obligatory stop is Larsen's - for the oysters primarily - they are so darn fresh and delicious and reasonably priced. We each had a dozen on the half shell, sitting overlooking the harbor, which is quite busy. Great, great place!!! Beautiful setting to watch the sunset as well.

Very few "local" fish, which is not the responsibility of the "Market" (except for its advertising). Federal regulations have unfortunately confined our local fishermen, but local markets and restaurants don't want to let you know that.

When my girlfriend and I went walking in Menemsha we stopped at the Larsen's Fish Market. We purchase crackers and smoked tuna spread to bring to our cottage so that we can enjoy them with some drinks later on in the day. We were not disappointed with our selection. They are a full and diverse fish market with many types... More

1st of all the woman who waited on us could not have been nicer and such a beautiful smile. Had lobster rolls sitting on the dock watching the boats, excellent. Ordered whole lobsters and clams to take home for dinner. All the fish looked so delicious but most of all, very fresh, certainly not like any of the fish I... More

We splurged and went to Larsens and picked up all the local favorites. They were hands down the best Oysters we have eaten! YUM (they farm them right there). Old fishing village where JAWS was filmed. Great fish shacks!

At Larsen's right now on an amazing Fall day. Sitting outdoors with a beautiful view of the harbor. This place is a fish market first & a restaurant second. Beautiful drive from Edgartown but very disappointed in this establishment. Staff very friendly. The worst steamers Ive ever had. They're loaded with sand. I'm a purist but feeling the grit in...
