Visiting Edgartown in late October means many restaurants are closed for the season, so we were pleasantly surprised to find The Port Hunter still open and serving delicious food in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Service was good and the food very tasty. It’s closed...More

Apparently this is “the place” to go for the top live entertainment. We had a great time as a few couples here after dinner. Was very crowded, standing room only. The band was very good.

Popular place on the main street. Attentive service and pretty fast food. Had an app and burger with cocktail and was pretty reasonable for the area. A bit loud but guess that means everyone was enjoying themselves!

The Port Hunter is always buzzing with energy. The scene is lively and fun, and the food matches the ambiance. The Burrata appetizer served with an abundant amount of grilled bread sticks - perfect for sharing. We enjoyed the Halibut and Fish Tacos.

Worth talking to them. It's one big, open room with a bar on one side and the kitchen in the back. Seems like it could easily be configured for that. The food was exceptional. All exposed brick. Nice atmosphere.
