Our last stop on Martha's Vineyard before heading back to Boston was lunch at The Black Dog Tavern. This wasn't a normal tavern, there were multiple buildings, a bakery, a retail shop - quite the well rounded business. It all started with the tavern though, and after tasting the food I completely understood why it has become so popular.
This was the retail house - they had really cute stuff. I bought Mia a toy (which has proved to be very durable) and a cook book. Obviously!
My Mom started with the clam chowder. I snuck a bite and it was delicious. Creamy and packed with potatoes and seafood, as a good chowder should be!
I opted for the lobster roll with fries. The plate was HUGE and could have easily been shared. I didn't even eat half, but had to get my lobster fix while I could. I think this is the one dish they're very known for, so if you're a lobster roll fan - dive in.
My Mom chose the summer salad which came with walnuts, chicken, strawberries and balsamic dressing. It looked so fresh and tasty!
I could have walked around the Black Dog property for a couple hours, they have a lot of different things going on and a lot to browse through. Plus, I had seen the black dog t-shirts all around the east coast, and now I finally know what it means and where they got it :)
