Food outstanding

The atmosphere is an old colonial home that was updated. Nothing fancy but food was outstanding! The steaks we had was cooked perfectly and one of the best we have ever tasted. Service pretty good but very pricey! Very crowded and hard to get reservation.

I went here for my 2 year anniversary with my boyfriend. We arrived on time for our reservation and our table wasn't ready, we had to wait 10mins but thats fine that didn't bother either of us. Then we were seated by a grumpy lady who didn't smile. THEN our waitress was even grumpier than that first lady, again no... More

Roasted duck breast was delicious and was accompanied by a scallion pancake. My husband had the bluefish - he said it was superb. Staff was attentive and the restaurant is nicely decorated.

Depth, subtlety and sophistication mark this restaurant as one not to miss. We had two dinners there that were superb. Great atmosphere and service make State Road impressive. Reservations are very important here. Make them as far in advance as possible!

My mother in law treated us to dinner here one night and it was amazing! It is my sister and brother in laws favorite restaurant on the island. Very nice drink selections (no liquor though). I wasn't drinking, but they all loved their wine, and my husband was impressed with the craft beer selections. They also liked the after dinner... More

It's noisy, dark but delicious!!!! The ricotta is not to be missed, service was very attentive and not stuffy at all. I would go back and just order the ricotta and sit at the bar. We will be back!

But not much in the way of good attentive service and unpredictable food. I was taken there for my birthday (did not mention to restaurant). My friends ordered rare hamburgers and they came well done. My chicken was very good. There were two other birthdays that evening and we noticed that they were brought out a single quarter size (not... More

Absolutely gorgeous and hip setting with delicious food. Organic and super fresh ingredients make for excellent eggs, bacon and best peach scone I have had in years. This is a must stop if you love excellent cuisine, ambiance and enthusiastic staff.

This is one of the best restaurants on Martha's Vineyard. The up island location is lovely, surrounded by beautiful herb and vegetable gardens. The food is very good, and the service was excellent. You should know that they only serve beer and wine. Also this was a very loud restaurant, at least in the room we were in, with barn... More

The hamburgers were very good but felt it was a little on the expensive side. The staff was very friendly. The place was packed full of people and was a nice place.
