Excellent vibe! This place had it all! Awesome decor, laid atmosphere with an underlying electricity, helpful and efficient wait staff and amazing food! The Hanger Steak and Brussel Sprout appetizer were amazing! Will definitely be back!

Went here with a group. It was pre-season, mid-week and the place was full...an indication of how good the food is here. The service was excellent as well. Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Edgartown.

This place has been packed every time I have walked by in the summer. This summer my family and I actually decided to try it. Definitely took a few tries, they don't take reservations. We ended up coming twice, very early right when it opened...More

Loved the food. Smoked bluefish cakes are awesome. The brussel/beet salad was good as was the roasted chicken. Sause for the chicken was a bit rich. Mezcal Margarita was good. We sat at the bar and the service was great. I'd go back again for...More

Worth talking to them. It's one big, open room with a bar on one side and the kitchen in the back. Seems like it could easily be configured for that. The food was exceptional. All exposed brick. Nice atmosphere.
