This may go down as just a bad experience for our party, but The Dunes really struggled while we were there. The waiter was not aware of the current stock of specials, so three people had to place an alternate order after finding out that...More

Our Executive Chef creates high-quality, New American and seafood cuisine, inspired by local, seasonal, and sustainable ingredients. The Dunes is ideal for a special romantic dinner, yet friendly enough for the entire family. Enjoy your favorite cocktail and light bites in our lounge or savor your meal and drinks on our fabulous, outdoor deck - complete with a fire pit and ocean view. Take our complimentary, spectacular water taxi cruise from Edgartown directly to The Dunes, in-season. We offer plenty of free parking and can accommodate weddings, corporate meetings, and special events. In-season, we also offer a complimentary "Kids' Corner." Once your children are through with their meals, drop them off in our supervised Program and our counselors will entertain them with myriad activities - while you enjoy dessert or a cocktail on our deck.
