Visited on a day trip, September 2019 to MV while a friend stayed with us on The Cape. We happened upon this sweet spot for brunch. It was lovely to watch the planes as we dined on the patio. Great view, delicious menu and friendly...service!More

Had breakfast here during our stay in Edgartown. Dining is all outside (covid) at picnic tables and very well spaced. You order at a window and a masked server brings the food to your table in takeout containers. They have a very good system!!! You...can have breakfast (or lunch also I believe) in the sunshine and watch the small planes come and go. The food is good, reasonably priced and they are working really hard to make this an enjoyable experience. We have been here in the past and it was equally as good but I don't recall if they had the outside tables. I think they should keep them, it is a great (although probably unplanned) addition!More

It was a gorgeous summer day and the airplanes were flying in and out frequently and our meal at Right Fork Diner was the cherry on top. Our food came out in a timely manner and my son couldn’t stop ooooing and ahing over his...cheddar biscuit fried egg sandwich! The French toast was decadent, complete with real maple syrup. Our avocado toast ,that we had augmented to be on a bed of greens,( yes, we are those people🤣) was beautifully presented but the avocado was forgotten😃, but was remedied graciously and quickly. My family loves this restaurant and highly recommends the food and locale So worth a visit, many visits!More

The manager/owner with the accent is by far the most unprofessional and disgusting human. Let’s go through, why I make such a harsh statement? As a first time guest my family and I placed an order and was told that it would be an hour...long (which was fine). An hour and 10mins later we noticed three families that arrived after us (white of course) received their meal far before we did. As a professional I approached him and simply asked if he would help me understand, why were these families accommodated before us and their arrival time was 15, 20 and 30mins after my family. Well he took the liberty to start to yell and say weren’t you told an hour? I replied, Yes, I was in fact told an hour but we are now passed the hour. Food arrival The food arrives and it’s cold, the pancakes are burnt and my husbands chicken was as hard as rock. My daughters French toast was as cold as bread in a refrigerator. Waiting time The food is not worth the wait, the rudeness, the discriminatory behavior and most certainly not the money. Once your seated you now have to wait for the food while your drinks are brought out to you and the ice is melted and your drinks are now tasting like water. Final thoughts I am speaking honestly and am a true supporter of small businesses. I will not support a small business that discriminates and feels they can talk down to you as if your the crap under their shoe. If the food were great I’d be sure to state the food is amazing. But the food is not worth the wait and again rude behavior. He’s just a nasty person and when he slammed that door in my face I was simply done. Where to go???? The Artcliff Diner worth the wait and the food is AMAZING.More

This "diner" is located at the Katama Airfield. When you park there, you'll think you're gonna have a hot dog and a boring burger. Prepare to be delighted. It's on the bike path, so if you bike, it's a fun way to break up your...journey. You can watch the planes as they come and go while you dine outside. We were there for lunch. I had the BLAT, which is an amped up BLT (with avocado - yum). Hubby had a Katama Omelet (lobster, corn, asparagus, cheddar topped with hollandaise.). Highly recommended. Just delightful.More

My boyfriend and I had brunch at Right Fork on our last day at Marthas Vineyard, before leaving, and it was great! Really cute small, looks like a family owned place thats been around forever and serves the best food. We both miss our meal...here and still talk about it.More

The coolest part of this diner is the view of the airfield. It was sooo cool to be able to see the planes up close and personal! The inside was much smaller than I thought it would be, cute and cozy. The outdoor seating felt...bigger than the inside. Their breakfast menu was large and with nice variety of dishes. The service was slow and not attentive, it took time to do everything here… Once we finally got the server to take our order, we went with Lobster Benedict with Cheesy Polenta Cake to share. The eggs were poached a bit too long, which was a bit disappointing. The polenta cake was firm yet bouncy, with nice cheesy flavor. It had a generous amount of lobster meat, which was great! We enjoyed the food, but you know what can ruin a good meal? Horrible service. Our server acted as if she didn’t care if we were there, or maybe she just wanted us to leave? When we get treated differently, and looking around and seeing I am the only non-white customer there, it does make me wonder if that is the reason behind the horrible service. One interesting (putting it nicely) thing was when my hubby asked for a refill of water, she came and refilled ONLY his glass and walked away. We had to ask for my glass to get a refill once we got her attention… Then, she brought a check without asking if we wanted anything else. Oh well, we were ready to get out of this un-welcoming place anyways. Would we return? Maybe to try some other dishes, but with low or no expectation of receiving any kind of warm service.More

What a great spot for a delicous lobster roll and to have Biplane Rides right there. We didnt take a bi plane ride but to enjoy watching them from the back patio was a highlight of our day at Martha's Vineyard!
