I would recommend doing the fishing boat trips. Those were fun. If you're not into fishing you can still take the boats out into the sea. Very cool.
Some folks caught quite a few fish. This is great if you're staying in a house with other people. This becomes your meal for the night (or several days depending on your catch). Nonetheless, it was all good.

We stumbled upon Balance, a restaurant that was recommended by a local of Oak Bluffs. Close to the water, the ambiance was great inside the restaurant, dimly lit, candles, high ceilings/artwork. The chef was preparing various samplings of things that evening for a set price $10 per course. We each got 3, the best being the tenderloin over mushroom risotto.
One meal I won't soon forget, cooked perfectly! I'm glad that we asked around, try it if you're in the area~
Favorite Dish: tenderloin medallions over mushroom risotto!

Nancy's is at the marina where fishing boats are kept as well as private boats. Stairs from main street take you upstairs to the restaurant and you can sit inside or outside on the patio which has a wrap around bar that is great for watching activities in the marina. The GREAT lobster salad is what we go for in the afternoon and sitting outside is just so nice in nice weather.
Favorite Dish: Lobster Salad............beautifully presented and of course, NewEngland lobster is the best.

Since Oak Bluffs is on an island, you need to take a ferry or small plane into the island. I personally flew into Providence, RI, drove to New Bedford, MA, then took the ferry to Oak Bluffs. The ferry ride was 90 minutes and cost $10. Parking was also $10 a day in New Bedford. The ferry is for walk on passengers only, if you want to bring your car to Martha's Vineyard, you must go to Woods Hole, MA. There is a ferry there for cars, but I don't know much about it. Check this site for getting there.
There are cabs and toursit shuttles all over the place.

You can only get to the Vineyards by taking a ferry. Make sure you scope this out ahead of time. Particularly if you're not lodging on the islands. They do stop running at a certain time (maybe about midnight) and don't start up again until the am. I can't stress enough about organizing the ferry ride in advance. You have to arrange it for when you leave the island, too. If you come and go on weekdays it'll be a lot easier to arrange. The Port Authority suggest this, too. By the way, it does cost so be prepared to pay.
Taxis are the best way to get around. If you choose to bring your car then expect to pay a price. Also, cars are limited so you have to reserve the space on the ferry many months in advance. Especially during the popular seasons.

Favorite thing: The Bluffs is quite the quaint lil town. However, being African-American, I was pleased to see the diversity in this popular Martha's Vineyard spot. Diversity always adds a little something more to a lot of the American touristy cities. But I enjoyed it.
Fondest memory: There was a restaurant by the name of Lucy's (I believe). I'll have to double check that. But the food was really good. They transform it to a night club in the evening. Had some nice music and laid-back atmosphere.
