It was a desperately cold day in 1969. With the Vineyard having no year-round restaurant, Captain Robert Douglas' repast on that particular night was a bitter cup of coffee and a dry, packaged, store-bought donut. The Captain had finally had enough. He began sketching on a paper napkin. A small gambrel-roofed building started to take shape. There were more napkins and more sketches. Captain Douglas played with the placement of the windows, added dormers, and then pulled it all together with a large red brick chimney. The restaurant would look just right on the beach at the head of Vineyard Haven harbor, he thought. It would give Vineyarders and visitors a place to meet and eat.The Captain's excitement was contagious. Townsfolk helped build and shingle the establishment. Locals shared their recipes for pies, chowders and soups. The Captain named the restaurant after his faithful black canine companion - The Black Dog.
Now, Robert Douglas had three passions - his sailboat, the Vineyard and good food.
Today, the chefs of The Black Dog are eager to share their passionate culinary creations with you. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are currently served for locals and travelers alike. The Black Dog is known for its menu, desserts and atmosphere, as well as the view of the harbor and its sailing vessels.

Established in 1944, the 7,600 acre Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge provides important resting, nesting and feeding habitat for migratory birds. The visitor to this wilderness refuge encounters a very special place - a sanctuary that supports an amazing diversity of wildlife and plant species.
The waters of Nantucket Sound are ripe for those seeking striped bass, bluefish, fluke, tuna and even sharks. Trolling, drifting cut bait, casting lures or running live bait are generally some of the methods used.
The striped bass is so highly prized for its size and many anglers consider it the premier game fish in Massachusetts. It can be found from May to November along the entire Massachusetts coastline.
Fishing for adult bluefish generally improves through the summer as more fish start moving into inshore areas, and extends through October, after which waters cool and the fish migrate offshore and southward.
