For some of the best, and freshest, fried seafood on the island, The Bite is the go-to spot. Everything is fried to order – clams, oysters, squid, shrimp and scallops. Here the fish and chips is made with local flounder that’s delivered daily and served with shoe string fries or “bite fries” (nice fried chunks of skin-on potatoes). Also available are flounder or chicken sandwiches, fried chicken tenderloin fingers and crispy chicken wings with lots of sweet and sour sauce. While there are a few picnic tables restaurant-side, we can’t think of anything better than enjoying your meal on the beach, in full view of a spectacular Menemsha sunset. It just isn’t Summer until you’ve been to The Bite!
