I can't seem to get by their specials (3 times ) which are insanely good. Service is great ... friendly and informative. Menu is excellent. Five star food, service and location on Main St.

We sat the back room upstairs - what a cool space! Service was very good & mixed drinks were amazing! Food was ok - not too many options actually. Nice place to visit in the off season.

Kudos to the owners of this great restaurant for staying open throughout the winter. I ventured out of my hotel during this quick winter trip and found a great spot to enjoy some good food in a lively atmosphere. Thanks to the manager for taking the time with me this evening to tell a few stories about the island he... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Alchemy sitting by the fire in the lounge. The service was excellent and the ambience was warm and inviting. The cocktails and food were great! Our only regrets are that we couldn't have stayed longer to try more of the items on the menu!

I go to Martha's Vineyard to relax, see the sights, and enjoy some small-town charm and history. I never knew I was missing out on an incredible dining experience. My meal at Alchemy was the best I've had in a long while. The food was incredible. The four of us had three appetizers, four entrees, and a dessert, and all... More

Alchemy is about as centrally located as imaginable in Edgartown. This means easy access on foot, a bit more stressful trying to arrive by car and find a parking space. But we had no such problem during our off-season visit. We were seated in a mezzanine-type floor with a view into the larger dining room below. It's a unique layout... More

We happened in here while waiting for a table at another restaurant but decided to stay. The bartender was fabulous and convinced us to stay for dinner. While the menu is a little eclectic, everything we ordered was good and had so much flavor. We had the fresh oysters and squash bisque to start. The oysters were yummy and the... More
