Loved this place! Right next to our hotel. Service was wonderful and food was delicious! Beautifully presented - the best "bento box" I've ever had. Was not what you'd think - was beautiful, a variety of flavors, and gourmet!

After a few days on this tourist- and star-studded island, I find that restaurants have a triad of parameters I need to rate: how good was the food? How much food was served? How pricey was the meal? Chesca's is a popular venue in Edgartown,...More

We stayed at the Vineyard Square Inn and went to Chesca's for after dinner drinks one night. The bartender was friendly and service was great. It was a nice place to unwind and have a few cocktails.
