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.

We dined here on a busy weekend and was told we had more than an hour wait. Host staff busy talking among themselves offered nothing more. Upon seeing the adjacent bar where they were service dinner, we decided to take our chances there. Bad move....More

Love this restaurant. Unique plates and everything is amazing. Oysters are a must. They do not take reservations and the line can be a bit long in August. Worth the wait

This is a delicious place in the heart of Edgartown. Food quality is very high. My only issue is around noise - it gets very noisy by 7:30PM so you're best off getting in early if you're sensitive.

We were walking in and they suggested that we go to the bar. Long wait! The bartender said the couple in the middle was getting ready to leave and to sit over there. I walked over there and said a brief hello and then they...More

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.
