NEW Brews available only here!

This brewery has been around for just about 2 years and man is it growing fast. Starting to distribute nationally, but their newest and best original brews are only available at the "little" brewery bar in Edgartown. Their "Martha's Vineyard Ale" is available OFF ISLAND as they say:) Bottoms up

We have gone to Mad Martha's for many years. Despite our long history, I've tried to talk to the head office regarding allergy concerns. They never return my calls and different locations on the Island give different stories. The Edgartown location is especially rude about allergy questions. It's simple - pull out a container or two for allergy kids. Use... More

This venerable institution has fallen on hard times. The ice cream is weak on flavor—just not up to today's standards. And we stood through a verbal tussle between a self-satisfied server and a frankly astonished customer . . . only to then see the manager weigh in equally unpleasantly on the side of the scooper. Unusual for the Vineyard where... More

This is so cool, it is a brewery in a nursery. Unfortunately it was raining when we visited so we couldn't walk around the grounds. However, the beer was great and so was the guy playing the guitar. It is a great place to visit for a beer and a souvenir.

First day it was M&M Ice cream, second day it was the snickers ice cream. Fabulous, certainly did not need a pudding in the restaurant after that. Not cheap but then we were on holiday!

Amazing ice cream, rich and creamy! We wanted to try this place since it was recommended by our concierge at the hotel and we loved it!

The ice cream is well done, even by the standards of somebody from New Hampshire! However, the seating accommodations leave much to be desired. Portions are generous, if you plump for three scoops. The wait staff seem to be a bit disaffected from the customers.

They serve up wonderful real ice cream here with lots of choices. It is a bit pricy but most things are on the island. It was the first time I had ice cream in 5 months and we went back a second time too.
