We’re not going to apologize for the number of sunny rooms with good cocktails and fresh bivalves on this list, and Beach Road is our favorite spot for this situation in Vineyard Haven. The big dining room overlooks Lagoon Pond, and you’ll want to make a reservation (or luck into a bar seat) for a proper spread of oysters, pasta piled high with sweet lobster meat, and delicious cocktails like the Ginja Ninja (mezcal with ancho reyes, carrot juice, turmeric, and lime). Don’t forget the best bite in the building: an all-beef hotdog with grainy mustard and kimchi.
