Excellent food at The Dunes

Now called The Dunes, the Winnetu restaurant has great services and even better food. The only diappointment was the wine list - they were out of several selections on the menu.

We visited the Dunes several times in early October, admittedly it was late in the season. Over a 4 day weekend the restaurant was closed for dinner on three of nights. The complimentary breakfast was average at best, the service indifferent. One morning we were not approached by the servers even once. On Saturday evening the Dunes was closed for... More

Great menu, exceptional service and stunning deck overlooking the ocean. We loved it. They also have a kids menu which comes in handy when traveling with a five year old!

One of my colleagues suggested that me and my family, seven of us, make reservations while vacationing on Martha's Vineyard for this restaurant which includes a complimentary harbor excursion from The Edgartown Yacht Club at the end of Main Street out to a town boat ramp near the restaurant. The launch holds 22 people, is open air with an overhead... More

We arrived too late to see the water. It was too dark. However, we had a great time there. Miriam, our server, was knowledgeable of the menu and very friendly. It's an place with a history, of which they are rightfully proud, and we could not complain about the food. It is a place to return.

A good option if stymying at the hotel or the townhouses. I wouldn't drive here from the town for dinner. It was super child friendly, however. There is a staff member dedicated to overseeing the children during the dinner so parents can eat in peace. Food is good, service can be hit or miss, depending on who you get. Bar... More

Great views and decor. As most reviewers say it's a very kid friendly, right down to the large play area in the back of the restaurant. If you don't mind 10-15 kids running by your table every few minutes it's your place. I have kids and get it, but I did not have them with us this weekend. As for... More

We ate here twice as a family and I really wanted to enjoy this restaurant as we were fortunate enough to be staying at the resort. If you have not got young children then you must ask to sit in the front side of the restaurant away from the children's play area. I can understand totally why families with young... More

They do a nice job of separating out families with and without kids. Kids area has a play space with wonderful aides who keep the kids busy while we waited for dinner and afterwards. 14 in our group and we all enjoyed our meals
