About The Black Dog Tavern
It all started with a stale donut. Full service, year-round waterfront dining in our legendary Tavern on Vineyard Haven Harbor. It was a desperately cold day in 1969. At that time, the Vineyard did not have a year-round restaurant, and Captain Robert Douglas’ repast that night was a bitter cup of coffee and a dry, packaged, store-bought donut. The Captain, unsatisfied by his “meal”, picked up a pencil and began sketching on a paper napkin. He drew a small gambrel-roofed building, which grew in stature and structure over the course of several more napkins. The end result was a restaurant that would look just right on the beach at the head of Vineyard Haven Harbor, a place where locals and visitors could meet and eat. The Captain’s excitement for his creation was contagious. Local townsfolk helped build and shingle until his sketch took real, physical shape. Locals shared their recipes for pies, chowders, and soups. When the building was completed the Captain gave his restaurant a name in honor of his faithful canine companion Black Dog.Not much has changed from those early days. The view of Vineyard Haven Harbor is still as lovely as ever and the Tavern chefs continue to share their culinary creations with our customers. We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including daily specials, year round, and always craft our food with the finest ingredients.
The Black Dog Tavern can also serve as a beautiful waterfront location for your next party, wedding, luncheon, or special event. Please contact us at 508-693-9223 to find out more information on how we can help put together the perfect event for you.
When you move to a town that doesn’t have a good year round restaurant, you have to build one. So we did.
