If you find yourself on Martha’s Vineyard, one of the first things you will probably do is look for a place for lunch or dinner. Now if you are staying at the Harbor View Hotel you will have about 50 feet or less to go, but if you are just there for a day trip, you will want to head over for some delectable fare at Henry’s or Water Street. We recently had the opportunity to try Henry’s and experience what they have to offer.
Technically Henry’s is the hotels bar, but they have some great food as well. Right away we noticed patrons that were talking not like travelers, but locals. We spoke with them for a little bit and they told us how they frequent Henry’s all the time and that it is some of the best food on the island.
You know when it’s a local favorite that it’s going to be good. Everything looks amazing on the menu, but I love steak try as I may to order something new, different or local (like seafood) the thought of a juicy tender dripping hunk of meat always wins me over. I was delighted to see Henry’s had a dry aged ribeye with frites and it didn't disappoint, an immaculate piece of meat came out from the kitchen to greet me and I couldn't have been happier.
I was so full and happy afterward and in that awkward, “I want dessert, but I probably shouldn't” moment, but our fantastic waiter had a perfect solution, he suggested some cookies and milk to go that we could have in our room later.
With the amazing service and food it’s no wonder locals and travelers alike have been coming here for years and I can’t wait to get back. Maybe I will try something new next time, who I am kidding I’m going back for that rib-eye.
Check out Henry’s here and also be sure to check out Water Street.
