Must Visit Restaurant on Martha's Vineyard

No visit is complete to Martha's Vineyard without eating at State Line. The food is exceptional and changes with the seasons. The restaurant is always packed so early reservations are necessary. Also expect a wait since seating is limited but be sure to stroll the grounds of this interesting and... read more

Fabulous does not begin to describe it! It took two years to align my schedule with a vist to the island when I could get a reservation for dinner! And it was worth the wait, yes! Andrea was our server and she was very accommodating to our many questions and whims. We were not driving, so tried a few special... More

The menu is very good and the food and presentation are excellent if expensive. The restaurant is attractive, but the tables are quite close together and it is very noisy. There is no acoustical buffering at all, and the music just make people talk louder. I have been several times, but my friends and I now go elsewhere for a... More

We enjoyed a great meal at State Road, one of the best we have had in our travels! The wine selection was nice and they make their own chocolate - which was also yummy! Go early and make a reservation if you want a quieter setting, the place is small and can get very busy!

We are both year round island residents who frequent State Road, mostly in the fall and in the winter, as the summer people make it hard to get a reservation just about anywhere. We absolutely love the food and creativity that happens in their kitchen, always changing with the seasons offering many dishes with the freshest local ingredients. All of... More

Having been raised on the island as a small child and returning each year, I will say that "foodie" food is lacking. However, there are a few definite gems and State Road is a must for anyone who wants a delicious meal out while on the Vineyard! Their menu is updated frequently and includes local foods that are beautiful and... More

I have been going to this location since it was Fat Tony's. My favorite incarnation was when Tina Miller ran it as the Roadhouse, but the now established State Road Restaurant is high on the list of any eatery on the island. The whole menu sparkles ... the firsts, the sides the mains, the wine list AND the desserts. The... More

Wonderful creative drinks (wine-based) and interesting concoctions of local foods. Excellent wait staff with prices somewhat high but you do get what you pay for.

We were lucky enough to get a seat at the bar last minute. This place books up very fast throughout the summer so make sure to make a reservation at least 7-10 days in advance. Depending on where you are staying on the island it can be a hike but well worth it.

Having reviewed this restaurant over two years ago, and having been there several times since because it is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere, I am writing about my recent visit a few days ago to say the restaurant is still "superb"! The food is creative and locally sourced whenever possible. The range of menu options, from steak to fish... More
