Sunshine and salt air spark the appetite, and Island restaurants respond with irresistible dishes for every palate. Surrounded by the sea, island fare naturally includes fresh fish, lobster and shellfish delicacies. Local produce and game are also menu features. Cravings for ethnic specialties are easily satisfied by restaurants offering the very best in Italian, Mexican, French and Chinese cuisine.

In making your choices, remember Tisbury, West Tisbury, and Chilmark  are "dry towns" (so BYOB). Oak Bluffs, Edgartown and Aquinnah are the only three "wet towns." For those who don't want to miss one moment of adventure, most island restaurants will pack up food to go. Arranging a traditional New England clambake is also a must during your stay.
