President Obama and his wife Michelle eat here overtime they are on the Vineyard (2 weeks in August every year.)

This is one of the best restaurants on the Vineyard. It has an outstanding Brunch on weekends and excellent lunch and dinner. All foods are sourced from the local area. The menu is both hearty and inventive. This is a great place for a foodie. Dinner is not inexpensive but is worth it. Boston... read more

State Road is among the better restaurants in the Vineyard Haven area. It's small (perhaps 18 tables, plus a bar), warm and cozy, and staffed by excellent servers. The menu is small but creative and thoughtful. There is a nice (though expensive) wine list. We have eaten there 3 times over the past 2 years. Each time the service was... More

We were thrilled this restaurant was open NYE weekend, after reviewing the menu on their website prior to the trip. Experience did not disappoint. Excellent food and service, and a beautifully decorated space. The bacon cheddar jalapeno grits were phenomenal, as were the locally grown eggs. They don't take reservations for brunch so get there early!

I highly recommend this place for a unique breakfast menu. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, not noisy at all. There's a variety of coffee options and drinks. The ricotta pancakes are to die for. The brie sourdough melt was delicious, as was the huevos rancheros. Lovely, all the way around.

We love going to state road and sitting at the bar where we can enjoy some lovely wines while snacking on their incredible charcuterie plate and locally sourced cheese plate. It is obvious that the chef is deeply passionate about the menu and never cuts corners in bringing world class cuisine to the table in this small Martha's Vineyard farming... More

Recently we were on the island five days and ate here 3 times. I really can't say enough about the food , service and decor. My husband ordered the best $20 dollar hamburger of his life, twice. The fish dishes were extraordinarily. The wait and front desk staff were uniformly welcoming, efficient and pleasant. State Roads decor is both sophisticated... More
