We use state-of-the-art density matrix renormalization group calculations in the canonical ensemble to determine the phase diagram of the dipolar Bose-Hubbard model on a finite cylinder. We consider several observables that are accessible in typical optical lattice setups and assess how well these quantities perform as order parameters. We find that, especially for small systems, the occupation imbalance is less susceptible to boundary effects than the structure factor in uncovering the presence of a periodic density modulation. By analyzing the nonlocal correlations, we find that the appearance of supersolid order is very sensitive to boundary effects, which may render it difficult to observe in quantum gas lattice experiments with a few tens of particles. Finally, we show that density measurements readily obtainable on a quantum gas microscope allow distinguishing between superfluid and solid phases using unsupervised machine-learning techniques.
