YUM!

Sweet Life has consistently offered fantastic meals amid the twinkling lights and hustle of Circuit Ave. I have eaten there multiple times a Summer for years and they continue to be one of the best dining options in Oak Bluffs and on the vineyard. a must visit for those who love food.

This quaint, charming restaurant serves up delicious dishes and great service. We ate there 2 days after their new Fall menu went into effect and the butternut squash soup was to die for. It's a limited menu, but something for everyone. A lovely dinner for sure.

This place has a reputation for great food, a unique mix of flavors, and a killer outdoor romantic atmosphere, and it doesn't disappoint. I'm a local, so I knew what to expect. The food was great. The service was impeccable. My only less than stellar moment was dessert. We shared chocolate bread pudding, and it just wasn't as fabulous as... More

Lovely wine list paired with fresh local ingredients made our meal special. Probably one of the top two restaurants in Oak Bluffs.

There is a gem of a dining experience at the end of Circuit Avenue in Oak Bluffs past the ice cream shops, t-shirt sellers and postcard places! This charming house and patio is romantic and charming, well worth a visit - it's become our new favorite on the island of Martha's Vineyard. Twinkling white lights in the garden and greenery...

Sweet Life has been around for a long time. Restaurants on Martha's Vineyard can be very inconsistent - great one year, bad the next. Chefs come and go even when the name remains the same. I hadn't eaten in Sweet Life for a number of years. We avoid Oak Bluffs during the summer because of the crowds and difficulty parking... More

We made reservations for our 42nd wedding anniversary. We arrived for our reservations for 3 but the table the hostess brought us to was not yet set for us but she easily corrected the situation. Ambiance was exceptional. Our waiter was prompt and attentive but needed to shower. He also didn't have a good ability to describe menu items we... More

We are long time edgartown summer residents and took our house guests to sweet life recently (for the first time) and loved everything about it...beautiful setting, great food, terrific service. I highly recommend it. Most Martha's Vineyard restaurants have a captive audience and the food reflects it. Ok but not superb. Sweet life does it right.
