This is a great place in downtown Oak Bluffs. It is nice to have a place to go to have a great beer and watch some live music on the weekends! The pizza here is phenomenal! The beers are pretty great too! It's a throw the peanut shells on the floor type of place, which is fun too!

This was a spot I had heard great things about and on my week long trip to Martha's Vineyard recently I had to hit this place up.
When I went here for dinner I sat in the outside seating which was nice. Since it was just my girlfriend and I there was no wait which I was very happy about on a Sunday night. Only complaint was there wasn't a ton of seating at the bar which made stopping in for a pint a bit difficult. Waitress was also good and timely for the amount of people she was taking care of.
The dinner was very good. Started out with the Parmesan truffle fries. I had the special which was a herb crusted bluefish. A bit pricey at $22 but the portions were good and it tasted even better. I had two pints of their Hop Goddess. Bill for everything was about $55 if I recall correctly. They had a special Imperial Stout on tap but I didn't end up getting it. No cask option when I went which was kind of disappointing.
I was very pleased with this brewpub on the island and I will absolutely be going back when I end up on the Vineyard.

Great to find a brew pub on Martha's Vineyard. The setting is rustic, fitting to the town. The outside seating is in relation to beer garden, with vines, small trees and other greens partially obstructing the view of the street. Still, you do not feel secluded.
The food is upgraded pub fare, focused a bit more of seafood. We sampled a couple different types of raw oysters, and moved on to a fried clam basket, a pretzel dish, and a hummus plate. The portions are big, the food is tasty, and the price is pretty much right given the location.
The beer ranges from average to good. I had the IPA and the nut brown, both were acceptable. I also sampled the hefe which was good. Growler fills are available.
The service was prompt and super friendly. I will return next time Im on Martha's Vineyard.

Visited on a Friday afternoon in late August while "on the island/vineyard" for vacation. After a day of touring, shopping, and hoping for a glimpse of the vacationing first family, our group stopped in for a couple of pints and a light dinner.
Offshore is located in the main town on the island where the ferries dock and I think most of the shopping resides. It's an easy block off the main drag and is identified on the tourist map you pick up almost anywhere.
The only downside of our visit was it came late in the day before fireworks at the nearby beach/park. Lots of people were coming in for an early dinner and our group of four settled for a cramped table in the bar.
Once we locked in on a server, service was pretty good considering the crowd. My buddy and I had a hefe and a hop goddess which was a higher bitterness and alcohol than their IPA. It was one of the finest hoppy brewpub beers I've had this year (and I've had a lot). The hefe was also very nice. We got a chicken bbq pizza which was excellent. We got a six pack of the IPA when back on the mainland later in the week - very bitter and not too fruity - a good beer.

Stopped by on a Saturday evening in prime time (ie mid-August) and was still able to get a seat after a short wait. Not too shabby.
The atmosphere is kind of fun. It looks like the inside of a barn, lots of exposed unvarnished wood and that kind of thing, vintage posters etc. Free peanuts which is a nice touch; you don't see that often. Well lit so you can actually see the beer in your glass and the face of the person you're talking to.
I had the IPA and barley wine; my friend had the amber. All three were simple but good beers, no complaints, would easily drink them again (in fact, I have; Offshore has or at least had a bottling agreement with Mercury/Ipswich to distribute 6-packs). No guest taps or interesting bottles to speak of.
Service was prompt.
I failed to write down the exact prices, but I think they came out to around $5 for a pint plus tax and tip, which for solid craft beers in Martha's Vineyard is really pretty good.
