Having had a wonderful meal here last year, we were eager to return. The setting is lovely, but the experience was a disappointment. The staff was far too precious, even slightly rude. The food was a mixed bag. Overall the portions are small and the...More

Read and heard so much about this restaurant-- big disappointment. No one in the kitchen is tasting the food before it comes out. The food was in desperate need of flavor. I ate the raw scallop appetizer and halibut. They were both just ok ,...More

I should have listened to the other reviewers! First let me say the food was good, but comically small portions. We have eaten at many high end restaurants and were not expecting huge portions by any means, but three oysters for $15? My husband and...More

Disregard my previous review review praising this establishment from a few years ago. That was another time, another chef and another place. We are summer residents and watched this place being built. We were customers within one month of opening night. We loved it as...More

Went for brunch last Sunday and had the burger because it's usually very good. I asked for it rare and there was nothing pink about it. There are no fries (you can order them separately) no lettuce, tomato or onion - just a burger on...More

We had been fans of State Road for a number of years, but over the past year a new "vision" has taken over. While the food remains very tasty, there really isn't very much of it. You can see a great deal of "plate." We...More

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.
