Once you get past the demoralizing "but, are you good enough to eat here?" hostess, the service is as wonderful as the food. Meats and fish expertly prepared; fresh and flavorful vegetables; excellent cocktails and a terrific selection of wines. And the desserts are perfection. Could this be the best restaurant in Edgartown?

We love eating at the bar. The bartenders are all great. The food is exceptional. I have never had a bad dish here. For Martha's Vineyard the prices are relatively reasonable. They pour great and large drinks. The tuna tartar is the best i've ever had. The oysters in a bag are terrific as is the hunters pasta. We keep... More

We came to visit relatives who have a house on Martha's Vineyard. As it was a birthday we suggested we take them out to dinner. They picked the spot and boy were we delighted! Alchemy is really a first class dining experience. The building is old and really warm and inviting as are the hostesses and staff. Mike the bartender... More

Great friendly but professional staff. Menu is a plus. Fried oysters and even the hamburgers are best in town. Eating at the bar very fun.

No reservations and the place we intended was closed for private party. Stumbled upon this on Main Street and we're glad we did. Bistro style with white paper on the tables. Bar was full of diners and we view that as a good sign. Very warmly greeted with a table readily available. A little too chilly for outside. Nice crowd... More

Alchemy is a Vineyard classic. I would recommend everyone go at least once during their stay! Luxury atmosphere, wonderful service, and a great wine list. The bar also has very nice seating, I would suggest grabbing a drink before you are seated for your table! Definitely one of my favorites.

Martha's Vineyard has many restaurants. The one I would return to over and over again, is Alchemy. The food is superb, the wine list ambitious, and the wait staff knowledgable and attentive. I had scallops in a bed of fresh corn and peas with red cabbage. It was spectacular. Don't miss this wonderful restaurant if you go to the Vineyard.... More

Alchemy lounge as become our go to on the Vineyard mostly because it is always easy to find a table in the lounge to drink and/or eat. Our son is a member of the Vineyard Sound a cappella group and they often perform all over Etown. The service is always friendly and pretty fast, the cocktails good. We had dinner... More
