Martha’s Vineyard: Part 2

After our wonderful day in Oak Bluffs hanging out on the beach, Chris and I headed back to our bed and breakfast in Vineyard Haven to get ready for dinner. I made reservations at Home Port Restaurant earlier in the week because I read great reviews online about the seafood:

Since we didn’t have a car and biking was out of the question (too far), we took the bus from Vineyard Haven to Chilmark, which took about an hour and a half (actually, we got back to our hotel around 5pm and I was in the shower when we realized we only had 7 minutes to get to the bus stop! I rushed out of the shower and basically ran out with my hair soaking wet and packed up my makeup to do on the bus). The restaurant is right by the water and the pictures on the webpage don’t really do it justice. The place was filled with families and we were REALLY excited to have lobster because we were really disappointed by the previous night’s seafood offerings. When you first look at their menu, the prices seem kind of steep, but then you read closely and realize that it’s a meal that you’re ordering – it comes with an appetizer, a salad, the main course, a drink, AND dessert. I ordered the Home Port Fish Platter: Shrimp, Fish, Scallops, Oyster, Boiled Lobster, stuffed Quahog, a baked potato, quahog chowder, a house salad, a diet coke, AND blueberry pie (all for $45 – a steal!):

And a pic of me with my bib:

…which I wore all night, even when I was eating my salad. ๐Ÿ™‚

Chris ordered the steak and lobster:

His lobster was actually pregnant and she had LOTS of eggs, which was a little gross since the lobster was steamed. I ate the lobster babies and they definitely weren’t as tasty as their mother (too chewy).

Overall, the meal was pretty good – the lobster was just steamed (very plain) and the scallops, shrimp, and fish were steamed in water as well. The stuffed quahog was definitely not worth ordering, but I had so many other things left on my plate that I didn’t even have to bother with the clam. After dinner, we luckily made the bus back to Vineyard Haven and walked from the port to our bed and breakfast (about a mile away). We definitely needed the exercise after pigging out on so much seafood!

Be back later with an update on Sunday’s festivities!

I have been surfing onnile more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
