Firstly, the opening hours on TA are wrong, it’s 10-8 for food and 10-9 for ice cream , both are wonderful! It’s the best place to eat without a doubt, take home or watch the sunset, fantastic value and amazing lobster roll !!

A great quick stop for lunch! The walk up window is easy with lots of options. We had the swordfish and crab cake sandwiches with fries and everything was great. The porch is around back with a great view of the boats coming and going.

Chowder and a burger. BYOB. Soft serve ice cream after. The best. Sit on the back porch and enjoy one of the best views on the island.

Don’t miss this gem. Delicious everything and the setting is equally great. Super casual and yummy. Can get busy but the wait is reasonable.

So if you are cruising the island and are near Menemsha this is a great place to eat outside and have a great Lobster Roll. The view is tremendous and if you have ever seen Jaws you will be looking for Quint on the dock...More
