Larsen’s is the quintessential fish shack on the water with a great selection of fresh fish that also happens to serve it up hot or cold as you wish. You can get a lobster of whatever size you like and they’ll cook it up fresh...More

This is an authentic fisherman’s feed shack. Fresh from the boats to your take out plate. No tables. No drinks. Just the freshest seafood served raw or steamed. Oysters were superb! Salmon patty was ok. Lobster Mac cheese was decent. Chowder was watery but tasty....More

A major disappointment. The chowder was watered down and my husband’s lobster Mac and cheese didn’t taste like real cheese. Better in Western MA!

We make an annual outing of calling in an order of steamers and lobsters to eat in the evening on the beach at Menemsha. Everything is always fresh and if you order the culls you can save major money!

Not only the lobsters and steamers are the best, but also shrimp cocktail! You can also find zillion fresh fish to buy and cook it yourself, but... the best experience is to have a huge lobster on seashore while sun is going down to horizon.

We count on Larsen's for a bake on the beach - pre-order your lobsters by noon along with steamers and watch sunset at Mnemsha!
