State Road Restaurant

State Road opened in 2009 in the agricultural town West Tisbury on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Our interiors were designed by Michael S. Smith. Michael appointed unique American antiques throughout the restaurant and called on regional craftsman and artisans to create a warm and inviting contemporary tavern. In 2010 we planted herb, fruit and vegetable gardens on our grounds. We harvest from the gardens daily for our seasonally focused menus.

This place is an institution. Make a reservation even in the off-season. Everyone knows to come here. Very expensive menu with interesting choices. Delicious brussels sprouts appetizer. Vegetarian cheesy pasta, mushroom, squash entree with a delicious broth-like sauce. Duck entree had an explosion of flavors. Average size portions. Excellent attentive service. Very friendly while juggling a bustling restaurant. Might be a little difficult to find this place at night. Use GPS. Lots of parking.

No ice or other "fillers." Great yogurt and fruit smoothies or yogurt cups with a delicious variety of toppings. Nice patio for warm days.

I heard the stories, how people line up at 9 o clock at night to eat these treats. I was in the neighborhood at about 3 pm and was surprised to find donuts on display. We bought 4 and went home. What I will say is, I hope these donuts were not from the night before. All were stale and all were thrown away. Do not buy except at night.

This was perfect for us, we arrived not overly hungry but wanted to eat something. Everything they serve is in small portions and can be shared. This place had the largest whiskey selection I've ever seen in the Northeast. I'm not a whiskey drinker at all, but our server (who was attentive and knowledgeable) recommended a drink where the whiskey was not overpowering - it was perfect (sorry don't recall the name of it). There is a "cool" vibe to this place, but it's very small and I'm not sure that more than 4 people can be accommodated - there were 4 of us and we fit into their booth.

We got a charcuterie board - which had all kinds of exotic fruits, cheeses, pastes, etc. and my favorite was the sausage/pretzel wrap.

One observation I made during our two visits is that this place "happening". Expect a crowded parking lot (albeit, shared with the general store) and long-ish lines. Worth the wait. I've included a copy of the breakfast/lunch counter menu. Also notable that they serve Stumptown coffee, as well as a small variety of gourmet foods of the shelves. My husband loves lavender honey- so hard to find- yet we found some here, imported from Italy.

The Terrace at The Charlotte Inn

Reviewed By Randysmum - Boston, Massachusetts

As always a great dining experience. Summer or winter this restaurant is one of the best not only on Martha's Vineyard but one of the best I have experienced. The ambiance is only topped by the food and very attentive but not smothering attention to customers by all employees. Last night I was disappointed to have missed the best member of the staff, the beloved golden retriever, who had already retired for the evening. I'll have to go back soon!!

What a lovely setting this Inn and Restaurant has! A beautiful drive around the island and magical place upon arrival! Before or after dinner be sure and walk around the grounds- you might find yourself booking a room to stay! Dinner was delightful and food delicious! The owners make you feel as if you are entering their own private home and welcome you as immediate friends. What a special place- don't miss this experience! It is worth the drive!!

Reviewed By Marcia D - Bartow, Florida

Our great experience started with trying to make a reservation. I called when they weren't open and didn't leave a message but 10 minutes later a delightful woman called me back saying she saw my missed call. The earliest table available was 9pm but she offered us 6pm at the bar, which we took. Turns out that the woman who called me was also the bartender. I've never seen a bartender work so fast and furious, while still being so patient and friendly. We both ordered the scallops which were the best scallops I've ever eaten!

For breakfast I had 2 "everything" bagels with cream cheese. They were very good as was the coffee. I noticed they had a variety of breakfast items including burritos but I didn't try these. Here you can enjoy music playing while you have breakfast. You have to wald down a few steps to get to the restaurant. A favorite of locals.
