Best of Boston

2022 Best Restaurant, Martha's Vineyard

Beach Road

President Obama and his family have been known to dine at this hot spot within whistling distance of the Vineyard Haven ferry. One taste of the seafood-forward menu (the blue-swimmer crab app is a favorite), and you’ll see why. Chef Frank Williams honors the handiwork of island fishermen, farmers, and food artisans by transforming it into something sublime; the dining room, meanwhile, oozes nautical charm — a nod to the shipyards and boatbuilders surrounding it — and overlooks Lagoon Pond, the ideal spot to watch the setting sun or rising moon.

79 Beach Rd., Vineyard Haven, 508-693-8582,
