Oak Bluffs boasts a wide array of unique dining choices. Here are just a few:

Martha’s Vineyard Chowder Company – Voted Best Chowder in New England for many years, this is the place to tempt your tastebuds with that chowder you’ve been imagining since you first thought of a trip to New England. It’s gluten-free and made from scratch every day. The restaurant also offers many other items on the menu, including a hummus and falafel plate.

Offshore Ale Company – Voted “Best of the Vineyard” for four years, this is the place to enjoy gourmet truffle oil pizzas, including White Clam and Portobello. When you visit, you must sample their handcrafted beers, locally inspired with flavors like Menemsha Creek Pale Ale and East Chop Lighthouse Ale.

Park Corner Bistro – Have you ever had an Espresso Martini? Try one at this quaint restaurant located in the heart of downtown Oak Bluffs. Their Sunday brunch features scrumptious entrees like French Toast and great Bloody Marys. If you come on Sunday, you can sit back and relax to the sounds of acoustic music in a comfortable atmosphere.
