Pub Grub at its Finest

Local eatery and pub open all year long...which wins our hearts. Dinner at the Newes coupled with a movie at the Edgartown theater is a delight during the long quiet winter.

This pub has an authentic old-time feel. Wait staff was great and there were some wonderful local beers. My daughter loved the beer with coffee bean and chocolate. A sign of good basic food-real French onion soup. A nice stop when you are out walking around, especially off-season when it's cold outside.

I have eaten in most of the restaurants on the island, but have always avoided the Newes because one summer night a few years back my husband and I stopped in for a draft and found that we'd spent $20 for two beers at the front bar. It wasn't the best atmosphere, and we both agreed that for that price... More

I have been a year round resident of Martha's Vineyard for twenty-five years. When I got here, you got what you paid for; no more. Today my wife and I went to lunch. I love gyros. I ordered a $15 gyro which was to be served with French fries. For $2.00 more I could get onion rings instead. That's what... More

Have been here before and though it was much better last time. It was really "just ok" this time and I would think twice before going again. Food was not really hot and it was average at best. Too many other good places in edgartown

There's not that many nice places on the island, that locals can visit in off -season. Newes has been our favorite for a while. Great beer, awesome food and good prices. Service is always friendly and fast!

Many varieties of draft beer are available as well as a good selection of sandwiches and entrees. I don't believe you can go wrong ordering any of the meals offered. Seafood dishes are excellent as are the pub ribs. The prices are very reasonable and the servers are very efficient. We were particularly impressed by CHRIS, our waiter and also... More

I'm unimpressed with the food here. It's plain and more like comfort food from burgers, Mac and cheese, etc atmosphere is like a pub. Not impressed.

This is one of the best atmospheres I've ever been in. It was warm, and cozy. It made one have that good felling of being home, and laying in the warm sheets of your bed. The american classics like spectacular mac & cheese, and a thick juicy home style burger. This place is reliable and I would recommend it to... More

Off season there are few dining spots in Edgartown. This is a hot spot with a warm fire in the fireplace. Single draughts of craft beers or sampler/flights available. Popular with locals - frequently crowded. Good starters and pub food. Had bangers and mash last night. Place was packed and meals were served in a very reasonable amount of time.... More
