“tucked away, BYOB. Great secret.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

This unassuming little restaurant filled with locals. Food fantastic. Very accommodating. Off the beaten track. Reservations for sure needed.

“Good marks for Chilmark!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Attractive, minimalist sophisticated decor. Make reservation early and bring your own etoh to this dry town's restaurant. Our 5 person party had difficulty hearing eachother. despite acoustic panels. Food is very good. We loved the mussels and hot fudge Sunday. Parking is abailable.

“Delicious, charming, comfortable and gracious - best of MVY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We loved this place so much last year that we came back for dinner this past July. Bring liquor or wine as they don't serve alcohol *but* have a very intriguing menu of mixers that you will definitely want to try. Their fried clams are fantastic, especially with a cold glass ... the decor is fresh New England, airy and light. Crowd is locals and families and friends enjoying a good meal and each other's company - service is also very good. It's just a very merry, warm, happy, delicious place to eat.

“Wonderful dining, BYOB!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012 via mobile

We have been to Chilmark Tavern the past couple of years during the summer and love it! But you must make a reservation in the summer months. And since Chilmark is a dry town, remember to BYOB. They focus on local fare, including seafood and Vineyard farm vegetables. The dishes are inventive and interesting, but we were still able to find good food for our young girls, ages 4 and 6. Skip dessert, though, they are large and relatively uninteresting (pick up some nearby Chilmark Chocolates before your dinner to enjoy after your meal).

“Great food, make reservation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

good vibe in the restaurant and full mixers if you want to bring liquor for a cocktail, or bring your wine or beer. We brought three kids and they were very happy, crayons are provided to draw on brown paper table topper. Fried clams were yummy, baked chicken over corn was great, scallops were perfect, steak was big and juicy,onion rings were fabulous, green salad simple and good. Buttered pasta for 6 year old was just right. Great desserts. Two thumbs up from the adults and the kids.
