I travel the world with the USAF, left Rhode Island 1982. I return, visit family/friends every July. I make an annual visit to Marthas Vineyard. I have to say I once enjoyed dining at Black Dog. The past 3 years, cuisine has been horrible. I will avoid completely next year, expressing to military and government friends and family do not dine there. The food is better served to the water rats by the pier. I would think w/the great local seafood and cooks graduating from Americas most renowned cooking school (Johnson Whales) or one of the local Great Italian Moms they could serve a decent meal. The Black Dog should loosen their purse strings, hire a decent cook. It is about profit but profit would be higher if reputation wasnt going to the Dogs. I could do a better job cooking up delicious meals than the slop they are serving!
