#MeetTheAgentsMonday The Barn Bowling Alley Martha’s Vineyard

New Bowling Alley, The Barn, on Martha’s Vineyard

Winter months are long and cold on Martha’s Vineyard.  There are not many activities going on to occupy one’s time. It gives you a good break from the chaos of the summer and a time to relax with family and friends you may have missed during that time. You meet at local, year-round bars and restaurants to discuss any and all changes that may have happened to about to take place on the island.  

Then I heard The Barn, Bowl and Bistro, a new bowling alley, bar and restaurant on Uncas Avenue in Oak Bluffs is opening up in the spring of 2015. To say I’m excited is an understatement. We’ve all experienced changes to that island, some good and some bad, but this is a change that seems to be unanimously a positive one. We have another entertainment center for adults and children alike. Especially with the closing of Flatbread a.k.a. the Hot Tin Roof, The Barn has renewed our excitement for summer to come.

Meet the Agents Monday #MAM: Melissa Peters


I’ve been known to be a bit of a “Food Snob.” Friends often ask my opinion of specific restaurants before trying them out.

I have only rave reviews for Copper Wok located on Main Street, Vineyard Haven.

Friendly hostesses greet you at the door, and you then have a choice of three dining experiences.

If you choose to sit up at the bar you will make new friends each time you dine there. Be sure to say “Hi” to Jerry and Ting (Sushi chefs). Watch them create their masterpieces.

Then there’s the communal bar where it would be fun to get a group of friends together as you’re seated across from each other making it easier to share the tasty Pan Asian dishes coming from the kitchen.  This would also be the time to order the Copper Love Boat- twelve pieces of assorted sashimi (Chefs choice), ten pieces Nigiri (Chefs choice), Spicy Tuna Roll, and Special Roll of Choice.  Yum! My mouth is watering.

There are also smaller tables available for a more intimate meal.

The restaurant is decorated in a Pan Asian theme, it’s fun to look around at all the little touches incorporated throughout.  I have to say, one of the bigger pluses to the restaurant is when you are traveling home on the ferry, you can call ahead, and your to-go order will be waiting for you when you arrive.

I hope to see you at Copper Wok soon!
