Glad I finally got a chance to have dinner here, having heard so much about it. The interior is very interesting, though I found it very noisy and very dark. The food was very good and very fresh. Had a burger and shared a salad. However, it found it overall a bit over priced for what we received. The service... More

We just finished brunch here. My wife and I are foodies and this is a destination restaurant. Today's hash was made with duck so my wife was certain to order it and loved it. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberries which were perfectly cooked if you can judge that for pancakes. I also had the Brie sourdough melt... More

We have eaten there many times over the years, and it's always delightful even if the acoustics are a bit trying. Ate there twice this past month. A good, varying, and changing menu coupled with a pleasant staff - friendly and polite. Always a favorite.

This fabled restaurant offers an eclectic menu of locally sourced food and gets rave reviews from everyone on Martha's vineyard in answer to the question, "Where shall we make reservations?" However, whoever designed their lighting has never actually sat down and eaten under the pretentious and inelegant lights they designed. Dull and dim. I loved the food and hated the... More

Great quality good , excellently prepared. Good menu selection. Pride themselves on buying local. Herbs are grown in their gardens on the premises! Kudos to Chef Jack for quality , presentation and uniqueness of the meals.

A bit of a drive from Edgartown,about 20 minutes,but once you arrive it's a beautiful setting. A tavern feel of rustic stone and wood. Very welcoming. Menu is limited. Tomato and fennel soup app very good. Tuna special app was not well executed. Main courses were fish and a ribeye. Good not great. Service was efficient and a bit forced.

The service was good, the atmosphere great. We wanted to take the bathrooms home with us. We both had excellent meals. Cheese plate excellent. Codfish was flavorful, not a typical dish we order. Ribeye was good, cooked as directed. Quite pricey but food was good to excellent. I think the staff and atmosphere tip this restaurant over the edge to... More

We do not go out to dinner very often on the island. Lots of places the food is marginal and the service is bad. We visited State Road twice this summer both times the food was excellent. The service is also very good and with friendly staff. It is difficult to get a reservation in July and August so book... More

No wonder why the president Obama comes every year, this place is just fabulous! Everything is home made, including an enticing selection of charcuterie, delicious bread and fantastic menu selection. All vegetables are sources locally, and most of the aromatic herbs grown on site! One of my favorite feature is the wood burning grill that gives this extra flavour and... More

If you're having one splurge dinner out during your visit to MV, make it here. Great local ingredients, house-made charcuterie, and careful service. If dinner is too pricy, wait in line for the more reasonable brunch. At dinner, our favorites were the duck, scallops, and charcuterie selection with crispy trotter. At brunch, the ricotta pancakes and the cheese grits are... More
