Best of Boston
2017 Best Bar, Martha's Vineyard
The Port Hunter
Far more than a wait-list consolation prize, the bar at the Port Hunter is itself a destination, thanks to a dangerously interesting cocktail list—try the Fresno Blanco, made with tequila, pineapple juice, rosemary, and orgeat—local craft beers, and stellar bar snacks like bluefish cakes and Buffalo Brussels sprouts. There’s also plenty to do besides sip and people-watch, in the form of shuffleboard and live music after 10 p.m. many nights.
