Very limited menu. We were with a local who had recommended the Resturant and when we enquired as to where the proper lunch menu was, the waiter apologised and said everyone was complaining about it. Service was awful. As each one of us finished, the plated was snatched away, instead of waiting for us all to finish. The bill arrived... More

We had heard so much about this restaurant- we do our homework where restaurants are concerned-it's reputation preceded it, and that's where it stayed. Salad and soup were very good, but that's where it ended. The chicken was simply a seasoned skin on a roasted 1/4, dry, bland bird. My husband's exceptionally expensive steak was not only tough, but fairly... More

We headed down-island on a Sunday night in Summer. First mistake. No parking to be found anywhere, and the restaurant we had expected to visit was unexpectedly closed this night..so we headed back up-island and decided to try sitting at the bar at State Rd. (we knew there'd be no chance of getting a table...they're always booked). Only 6 seats... More

Every time my wife and I visit the lovely, unpretentious State Road Restaurant, we depart blissfully satisfied with a lunch or dinner, composed of fresh delicious local products and served beautifully in a restful atmosphere that seems perfectly attuned to Martha's Vineyard values. We have watched this rural restaurant develop over the past six or seven years, getting better and... More

Had dinner reservations and were seated promptly. Waitress was slow to take our drink orders. Started with the quahog fritters which we didn't eat; told our waitress they were basically inedible. She apologized but surprisingly didn't take them off our bill. They were overdone and greasy, but underdone, heavy and doughy inside. And were rather vague in flavor. On to... More

What a find! Homemade breads, and a broad and interesting selection of menu items. Service is leisurely, but that goes with the food--it's meant to be savored.

While visiting MV with my family, many children included, we decided to have one night out that was adults only. We chose State Road and while it was a bit of a trek from Edgartown, it was worth it. The food was universally delicious, the setting elegant and simple, and the service excellent. Not one of us was disappointed. I... More

Recently visiting friends and I came here for dinner. I had the rabbit, a new dish for me there--it was yummy. One of them had 2 starters, pronouncing them both delicious; and the other had bluefish, which he said he previously didn't like, but raved about on this occasion. (On the Vineyard, fresh bluefish a good restaurants can be a... More

Our group of six was served by an outstanding waiter who was attentive and explained the organic selections of the menu. The fritters (vegetable and clam) and cheese plate were very good. The stars: lamb, rabbit, scallops and burgers were outstanding. Enjoyable and overpriced but what isn't on this island?

This is not my first review of this restaurant but I felt the need to express my delight once more. We are lucky enough to get here 1/2 dozen times a year and have never had a bad meal. This particular experience did not disappoint. First of all, the staff is very knowledgeable about the menu and can explain everything... More
