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.

The resort is a little out of the way but easily accessible by bus. The privacy of the restaurant combined with the beautiful view and excellent meal make it a winning combination. The staff was charming and accomodating and did everything they could to make our evening special.

Very cozy restaurant with great views. I ordered the catch of the day, "swordfish" which was well prepared and very tasty. We ordered the lobster flatbread and tuna tartare for our appetizers. They have a nice wine list, as well as a good specialty drink list. If you have kids, the babysitters here are very sweet and reliable. Kids from... More

One of the reasons we chose this restaurant was because of the water taxi, we thought it would be a nice way to see the harbor and some of the houses from the water. We showed up at our scheduled time for the water taxi only to be told by another boat that was there that apparently they had cancelled... More

Really nice restaurant with beautiful views. THe food was fresh and we loved that there was a separate, attended kids' area. Our 2.5 yr old son played while we ordered, then came back to eat a bit and went back to playing so we could have a nice meal in a relaxed setting.

Hotel beautiful, food great, service fantastic and it's hard to find better views on the island. Love the new outdoor bar overlooking the dunes and the sea. The front desk staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.

The Winnetu runs a nice one night special for us locals in the spring before the season kicks in here on the Vineyard. We can stay overnight for a minimal cleaning fee as long as we eat dinner that evening at the restaurant. We have done this a few times over the years, and the resort itself is lovely. The... More

Enjoy a memorable, casual, and relaxed dining experience with a scenic ocean view at The Dunes (formerly Lure restaurant). We're located at South Beach, in Edgartown, at the Winnetu Oceanside Resort - away from the bustling crowds. Our Executive Chef creates high-quality, New American and seafood cuisine, inspired by local, seasonal, and sustainable ingredients. The Dunes is ideal for a special romantic dinner, yet friendly enough for the entire family. Enjoy your favorite cocktail and light bites in our lounge or savor your meal and drinks on our fabulous, outdoor deck - complete with a fire pit and ocean view. Take our complimentary, spectacular water taxi cruise from Edgartown directly to The Dunes, in-season. We offer plenty of free parking and can accommodate weddings, corporate meetings, and special events. In-season, we also offer a complimentary "Kids' Corner." Once your children are through with their meals, drop them off in our supervised Program and our counselors will entertain them with myriad activities - while you enjoy dessert or a cocktail on our deck. Open mid-April through late October. A Breakfast Buffet is also offered in the off-season.
