A farm fresh breakfast diner

What a fun and delicious experience ! Having breakfast at the Katama airfield watching some of the unique small planes take off and land. Our breakfasts were right from the neighboring farm. Omelets to egg scrabbles with fresh veggies to squeezed orange juice. What a great way to start the day!!

The idea of eating a meal at an airport does not typically instill delight, Disdain, perhaps. Annoyance. Certainty. But not delight, until at least one has an opportunity to have a meal at the Right Fork Diner at the Katama Airport in Edgartown on the island of Martha's Vineyard. The Katama airport is tiny public airfield where the Right Fork... More

The Right Fork has the word "Diner" in its name but may not be a "diner" in the truest sense of the word. It does serve breakfast all day, yet is only open for a portion of the day. Also, there is no neon signs or juke boxes (which is good) so that kitzchy, diner feel isn't really there. What... More

We have had the pleasure of eating here for the past several years. I used their "no wait" app to make a reservation. When we arrived the wait time read 5 minuets, the person at the door told us it would be at least 20 minutes. After 20 minutes passed, my daughter went to see how much longer, the person... More

Hello Smp321_98, We apologize that the wait time to be seated extended passed the five minutes you were originally told. We truly understand that this is a frustrating situation and not the ideal way to start off, what should have been, a positive and memorable dining experience. It is disappointing to hear that the French toast was not prepared to... More

The food is great. Nice, clean, well prepared food. It's fun to watch the old planes take off and land. Try the farmers omelette and the iced coffee is out of this world.

Predominately known for its wonderful breakfast (get there early as they get busy quickly in the morning). During the summer months they serve dinner. Surprisingly good dinner entrees, generous in portion. The hanger steak was exceptional and cooked to perfection not too well, not to rare for medium rare. I did not want the frites and was offered the polenta... More

The wait was too long even though you can play cornhole and watch airplanes. The lobster cobb salad and mimosa was wonderful. The servers all seemed helpful and the whole family enjoyed their meals.

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, the waiters, the soft guitar, ...,all... 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.
