Larsen's Fish Market on Martha's Vineyard

Martha's Vineyard is home to so many wonderful restaurants. One of our favorite things to do there is to eat on the docks behind Larsen's Fish Market. Larsen's sells fresh seafood right out of the sea caught by local fisherman whose families have lived in Menemsha for many, many years. Some are descendants of the whaling families who first inhabited Martha's Vineyard. Larsen's is a fish market, not a restaurant. You can order a stuffed quahog or crab cake or lobster bisque or steamed lobster and eat it right out back on the dock while fishermen bring in more delicacies from the sea. The sky is the bluest blue and the breeze is perfect. So, next time you visit Martha's Vineyard, you MUST go to Larsen's!

You can choose seafood out of the case and take it home or have it steamed to eat right that minute.

Go behind the building to eat your delicious finds!

The lobster bisque was particularly wonderful! I liked it better than the clam chowder.

DH couldn't wait to take a bite! YUM!!!

The fishing boats are right behind Larsen's and you can see them unload the freshest catch! I love taking pictures in Menemsha.

Our fabulous group with happy tummies!!! We had enjoyed a true New England lunch!

DH & I heart Larsen's!!! What a fabulous weekend!
