I had a fine meal. Toast with a variety of mushrooms, yum. Organic porkchop, with squashes and potatoes. Wonderful, perfectly cooked, delicious. My husband was not so lucky with the vegetables with his scallops. Alternating between perfect to tough. Scallions, needed a steak knife to...More

Our waitress was lovely in her demeanor. Her first error was spilling cream on my friend's dress and no offer was made to dry clean the dress. The corkage fees were high and partially disclosed, $12 a bottle. The drink pouring fees(3.00) and the decanting...More

The interesting menu with its thoughtfully-assembled offerings and focus on locally sourced ingredients drew us to choose this restaurant for our anniversary dinner.

I enjoy eating here, and have done so at least a half-dozen times. The food is at worst competent, and at times great (I'm a sucker for a great bluefish pate, and theirs is light and fluffy). Scallops are great, as is fluke with razor...More

The sound level is the only thing that needs improvement at The Chilmark Tavern. The food is superb; innovative without being odd-just-for-the-sake-of-being-odd.
