Port Hunter oysters, Martha's Vineyard
Oysters served at Port Hunter in Edgartown

Port Hunter has opened and we couldn’t be happier.

Brothers Patrick and Ted Courtney set their first restaurant at their property at 55 Main Street, which was vacated a few months ago by In the Woods.

The current menu features eight varieties of oysters hailing from places such as Cheriton, Virginia, and Katama Bay. Other menu items include Prince Edward Island mussels in a white wine, parsley, and garlic broth, fried calamari, a BLT on house-made focaccia, a burger served with sweet potato wedges, and a locally caught lobster roll.

Our GM Joanne has visited the restaurant and gives it two thumbs up. In fact, the photos shown here came from her iPhone.

Port Hunter was a ship loaded with more than five million dollars worth of supplies for American troops when it was rammed and sunk by the tug Covington off East Chop in 1918 in what sounds like a game of “chicken.”  Weird, huh?

It makes a great name for a cozy new place to indulge and imbibe on the island, doesn’t it? Give it a try.
