Best Diner On The Island

This diner is my favorite by far. It has great food, great ambiance and things to do like one of there main attractions are the biplane rides. I did five rides and I loved it. You can get the option for the thrill ride or just tour the island. If you ever have time it is one of the things... read more

We went for an off season breakfast- wow the buttermilk pancakes are worth the ferry ride over! Highly recommended! Only open through mid-October

I had the lobster, corn, cherve scramble with scallion pesto... Wow. 100% impressed with my meal and wicked awesome seating overlooking the Katama air field. We had the best of both worlds outdoor breakfast and bar/counter style seating. Great soda shoppe style drink options, I had the raspberry lime ricky, and my companion had the blood orange mimosa, we were... More

This has become one of our local favorites..a seasonal restaurant with terrific food, but only serving breakfast and lunch this time of the year. It's just a wonderful place to start the day. Great food, terrific service...we've never been disappointed.

Have driven by a thousand times and finally stopped in for breakfast. Lives up to all expectations! My only warning to patrons is that if you have 3 year olds you may be taking their meal to go! The airfield is so close you can almost touch the small planes. My kids loved watching the landing/take-off during breakfast. Don't get... More

Located at the Katama Airfield in Edgartown. Every thing on the menu is wonderful and fresh. Love the blood orange mango mimosas. All this plus you get to watch small aircraft take off and land. Kids and adults love it. They will even text you when your reservation is ready.

I am tempted to give this restaurant a bad review in hopes that it would be less crowded in the future. The hardest thing about dining here is just getting in. There always seems to be a group of people waiting for a table. We had breakfast here, waiting for an outside table on a bright sunny morning, with a... More

What fun! You can eat delicious brioche French toast and watch biplanes, too. We took a small detour to Right Fork, and we're glad we did. If you have to wait for a table, sit outside, look at the biplanes, and enjoy the day. We chose to sit at the counter next to Paul a biplane flight instructor who asked... More

Took the bike path out to the airfield from Edgartown and hit the diner before heading to the beach. Breakfast is served until 2 PM! Busy place so you may have a short wait for a seat. Deck seating on the railing is nice to sit and watch planes take off and land. One had omelette breakfast, the other Tuna... More
