Doesn't Get Better!

First of all, you could not possibly have a cooler Vineyard venue. Katama Airstrip is the home of seasonal Biplane flights and has to be the nicest grass strip airport on the eastern seaboard. The restaurant sits on the edge and faces south into the sun. After that SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! The food... read more

During the summer the Right Fork Diner serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner to an enthusiastic crowd of patiently waiting people. While waiting for ample servings of nicely prepared standard diner fare (served with a twist) patrons can enjoy watching the local bi-plane and other small planes take off and land on a regular basis. The entire laid back atmosphere is... More

Biked here to get my husband and brother coffee. Both said it was awful. Not sure how the meals are as there was a long wait.

Hello MuffyLoves, We sincerely apologize that the coffee was not to your liking. Would you be able to provide us with the day and time you had biked to our establishment? As we usually do not receive complaints regarding our coffee, we would like to have the opportunity to look into the matter further. During peak business hours we may... More

We ate outside and watched the airplanes land and take off. Wait staff was excellent. Very casual atmosphere. Everyone in our party enjoyed to food. We had 2 kids with us and they catered to them. Recommend reservations because was full for breakfast. Next visit will try lunch.

Of course at peak times expect quite a wait - although they use the nowait app so you can see wait times and once you put your name on the list where you are in line. Fantastic, creative diner type of food right next to the Katama airfield. The fried chicken sandwich was just fantastic. This was my kids' favorite... More

Our family of four (mom, dad and two kids - 3 & 6 yrs. old) enjoyed a Saturday morning breakfast here. The wait (an hour) turned out breakfast into brunch, but consider this a testimony to the popularity of this joint. The fact that it's located on the Katama airfield made the wait go quickly (especially for the kids). The... More

Enjoyed a delicious breakfast with a view. A beautiful grassy airfield with planes landing and taking off as your enjoy your coffee. Great place anytime of day. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We enjoyed an omelette with lobster, corn, and cheese which was killer. Service was great. You can eat indoor out on the deck. We returned... More

A bit off the Edgartown beaten path, the food here is great. Inventive, assured American diner food in a light, airy atmosphere with conscientious service. The airfield is an amazing thing to watch (biplanes, sightseeing flights and gliders). A fun bike ride from Edgarown and right near south beach. We've been to MV many times but only went to Right...

Casual place at Katama Air Field serving a limited but very tasty menu for breakfast and lunch and dinner in season (after July 1). Enjoyed the wait staff and food and watched a private plane land just before dinner. Good for families with kids.
