After a rewarding drive around Martha’s Vineyard, poke around Menemsha until you see Larsen’s. In this quaint and very old village fish house, you’ll find fresh cuts from many unusual as well as everyday fish. But that’s not why tourists flock here: it’s the bubbling...More

This shack is highly rated and consequently mobbed by tourists. Expect a line whenever you go assuming you can find parking in the same zip code. Do not have the cold lobster roll. A wet soggy bun filled with a reasonable amount of rather bland...More

Simple rudimentary tables and chairs for a heavenly hit buttered kobster rolls on a gorgeous late summer day. There was even a pretty vase of Queen Anne's lace on the table.

Next year, this market will have been selling fish in Menemsha for half a century. The atmosphere is casual and cheerful. Its smoked bluefish and various dips and spreads are very tasty. The fish to buy and cook at home is very good, though pricey...More

This lobster was served fresh and cracked for us. I recommend pre-ordering no later than the morning of the day you want to enjoy your lobster dinner. My friend and our mothers enjoyed the freshly steamed lobster as we enjoyed the sunset at Menemsha Bight....More

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!

The Oysters and Stuffed Quahogs were delicious. The service was great and the outdoor location on the water drove home the ocean freshness. So it was dissapointing to see that their Lobster Mac 'n Cheese was pre-made and then microwaved. The opposite of what you...More
