Great Dinner Deal

Entrees may appear expensive but they are always 2 for 1 making dinner out at a "fancier" place an affordable treat. The dinning room feels a little "stuffy" with the white table cloths. We try and sit in the bar where the bartender has always been happy to make us an off the menu creative drink... read more

We eat here once or twice a year and are never disappointed. Appetizers and Entrees are always delicious. Two-for-one makes for a reasonably-priced evening. Fresh seafood especially good. Salmon special with Israeli couscous was a highlight. Beef tenderloin, veal Marsala and shrimp scampi are always delicious. Very nice ambiance and very good service. Overall an enjoyable experience.

I have visited The Grill on Main on every trip to Martha's Vineyard over the past 10 years. It is consistently good but this time I found the food and service to so outstanding that I went there twice. I would have gone more times but they were closed on Sunday. In addition to the delicious food , there is... More

We went on a two for one night and both meals, and the service, were wonderful. We started the meal by splitting a Caesar Salad. For the main course, my husband had the Pork Tenderloin and I had the Duck. Both meals were cooked perfectly and were delicious. We ended the night with the chocolate bread pudding which was to...

Our favorite restaurant in Edgartown Chef Tony is terrific, when it come down where do we go for excellent food at a reasonable price , we fall back on the grill. The Best is the Chocolate Bread Pudding, ask for it with Ice cream, served hot with the melting ice cream is a cho-holics delight.

Nice dining find on Martha's Vineyard. A little up the street from the main drag, but worth a visit. Simple and relaxed local setting with an efficient & friendly waitstaff. I had the T-Bone steak that was OUTSTANDING ! The 2 for 1 specials are a GREAT value compared to what you will get at any other decent restaurant on... More

We had a 2 for 1 pricing for our meals.they charge us for both meals for sales tax and 18% tip on both meals before taken off the lower cost meal off the two for 1 deal so you are overcharge on sales tax and the 18% tip what a ripoff not a good deal cost wise

We decided to try out as its a place we always drove past and wanted to try. When we got there they told us that they had a special of 2 for 1. Wow great... Or so we thought. To make up for that special, the prices for entrees were higher as were the prices for appetizers. I ordered a... More

Very impressive restaurant. Excellent menu and chefs, flavorful food, great wait staff, very clean and well appointed dining room. You have to drive up Main Street to get here (next to Clarion Hotel) but the food here is BETTER than places near the water and the prices are moderate.
