Visited very late season for an evening meal with two tweenage boys. Great sushi. Expansive menu and excellent service. Football was on Sunday evening - loud and vibrant atmosphere with pretty much all the locals and visitors in the area tucking into seafood based fare. Very good.

Nothing bad to say about this location - Everything was great! Clam chowder so good we took some with us for later! Sweet potato fries fresh, hot, delicious and plentiful; coconut shrimps hot and delicious (finger licking good) and the spinach salad had all the ingredients I like in a spinach salad and more!

Every year the owners reinvest in the physical plant , The food, drinks and atmosphere all are superb ,As the name implies , the view is unbeatable . During the high season the Steamship and other vessels are within an easy walk.

We ate our body weight in lobster while holidaying along the New England coastline. This was one of the standout lobster rolls and clam chowder in oak bluff. Great location as the name suggests. Corner location. Looks out onto the ocean. Another fantastic meal.

One of the few bars with views of the ocean in Oak Bluff's the Lookout tavern is about 500 yards from the ferry port. Outstanding bar is busy even out of season, good selection of beer and wine with daily cocktail specials. Service was friendly and we took an outside picnic table as the weather was perfect for dining alfresco.... More

This is a nice sports bar with a greta view of the water. The menu is varied from sushi to burgers to sandwiches.

The food was cold and tasted frozen and barely warmed. The blackened fish tacos weren't and the shells were so stale I dumped the contents out and are them without the shells. Very poor food quality.

We ate at Lookout Tavern twice for lunch. It has a nice atmosphere for lunch and a decent view through plastic walls off season as we were. The sushi was good and the miso soup was better. I thought that $5 for a side of rice was a bit much. The fish and chips were average. Our last day we... More

We took a day-trip visit to The Vineyard and just hung around Oak Bluffs. It was off-season so many places were closed. We accidentally gravitated to Lookout Tavern for lunch - and would put it on our "not to be missed list." My wife was craving Lobster Roll and that is a speciality at Lookout. We had a great table...
