Many of the restaurants found on the small, beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard, right off the coast of Massachusetts, focus on the fresh fish and seafood that the Atlantic Ocean provides on a daily basis. We list the best places to go for the catch of the day,
The Terrace has a well-deserved reputation for being one Martha’s Vineyard’s most sophisticated restaurants. Book a table here to savor refined recipes drawn from North America’s culinary tradition, with an addition of continental influences such as French and Italian.
One of the best restaurants in this part of the island is Copper Wok, located in that marvelous landmark that is Mansion House. Copper Wok specializes in a fusion of Asian cuisines, offering a scrumptious spread of dishes, from the classic soups, rolls, rice and noodles, to main entrées of meat or seafood. The restaurant boasts a seductive venue that sets the right mood.

Larsen’s Fish Market is one of the main sources of the flavorful seafood served at many of the island’s restaurants, and the good news is the market also sells to ordinary customers, at wholesale prices, a great meal and a good deal. Larsen’s Fish Market doesn’t provide seating, but you can easily make your a purchase and seat on the back porch, or perhaps go down to the beach and enjoy the view of the ocean.
The Scoop Shack
The Scoop Shack is a small but charming ice cream and candy shop in Edgartown. The visually stunning shop offers a mesmerizing amount of colorful, irresistible candies, lollipops and bars, expertly packaged in cute bags or jars and enticing customers from two large displays. The ice cream department is at the far end of the shop, and serves some of the island’s yummiest, most delicious ice cream in a varied selection of flavors and choices.
