We had a late dinner here and were very happy with the service and food. We ordered the bag of fried oysters that was perfect. They are dry and not squishy like others. They take care not to fry them in fish grease so they are not fishy at all. We had a burger that was really really good. Nice... More

The hostess is what makes this restaurant experience and nightmare from beginning to end! Gameplaying and jockeying for attention begins the moment you make a call for reservation - whether it's a day, or week, or month in advance you're obligated to deal with the most obnoxious hostess on the East Coast. Yes the restaurant is centrally located in the... More

We regularly eat at Alchemy during our vacations to MV and it's always great. On this most recent visit our Sat evening plans got juggled last minute and we were left with no great options for dinner. The maitre d', Jay, helped us get a table for 8 in the bar area at 6:45 pm which we greatly appreciated and... More

We were impressed by the great service we received. The staff was always one step ahead. We were seated on time for a 7:30 reservation. Although the restaurant was very busy and crowded the food came out on time and together. The salmon, steak , shrimp pasta, roasted chicken were all excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant.

The problem we found with this place was that it was trying too hard. Delicious local ingredients but too much going on, shellfish smothered in sauces, fresh fish with too many garnishes, sometimes less is more we felt. .

Michael at Hob Knob recommended this charming restaurant, just a couple blocks from the Inn and as we had just arrived on the island after a days journey of driving and ferrying from the South Shore…we were quick to take the very first suggestion. Luckily, it was early and we were able to get a cozy table for two on... More

If you are looking for good food, efficient service and a happening place, this is for you. We ate here with 5 of our grandchildren (ages 3 to 8) and we were treated as if we were royalty. Hats off to the gentleman at the front and to our waiter, Zach. We sat outside on the second floor porch and... More
