Best of Boston

2023 Best Bar, Martha's Vineyard

The Port Hunter

On an island, it’s not surprising that bars cater to either locals or tourists, rarely both. The beauty of this lively spot is that those distinctions don’t apply — everyone’s welcome. There’s indoor and outdoor seating. The craft cocktail program is inventive without being pretentious. And the food, like Vineyard flounder tacos and hickory-grilled whole fish, is far superior to most pub grub. But what will really draw you in is the sound of laughter and live music bouncing off the exposed red-brick walls and out onto Main Street.
