Staying at The Winnetu, we really wanted to like The Dunes. As the on property restaurant it was very convenient and the chef is new this year. We ordered scallops and the lamb shank. Both were delicious. However at $32 only 4 medium scallops were served perched upon a few lentils. At $34, the lamb shank was tender and served... More

We ate one dinner here and it was great. Cocktails were amazing and the food was very good. Staff was very friendly for all meals. Service at dinner was much better than breakfast, but they appeared to be somewhat understaffed at breakfast. We ate the free breakfast while staying at the hotel, but it certainly wasn't worth paying for.

This beautiful restaurant is set wonderfully with an ocean view of the south beach at Martha's Vineyard. It's located in the Winnetu resort but it looks separate from the hotel. It's approximately 20 min outside of Edgartown which is nicely away from the hustle and bustle of the town. Kids corner at this place is super nice that allows parents... More

we ate here many times, and enjoyed each meal. The dinner varieties are very good, as is the drink selection. On a warm evening, you can dine al fresco. They even have a little spot for movies for the children, to give the adults a bit of a break

We had dinner here one night. The restaurant is in a nice spot and offers great views, but the food left a bit to be desired. It was not bad, but not great, especially for the price point.

Ok, I have to start by saying my spouse and I are foodies. We thought the Dunes was middle of road compared to other options on MV. The wine list was smaller than you would expect for this type of place. Honestly, neither of us could remember what we ate several days later. It is convenient if you are staying... More

The food was average. It was nice to sit out on the deck just outside the restaurant and enjoy coffee and dessert after dinner.

My family and I had dinner at the Dunes with 4 adults and 7 children. We were sat directly next to the children's area and it was an excellent experience. Our waitress Sandy was very accommodating and eager to help us. The girls that worked in the play area kept the children engaged and entertained while we were able to... More

Ate there for breakfast while staying there. While the stay was amazing the restaurant was not. It took forever for service and we had to go back and find the server to get a drink. Food was not stellar for how much we paid.
