I had the filet and brought vodka for mixed drinks. I had the suggested basil martini, and it was incredible. I started with the bread and ended with the espresso doughnuts! Definitely hit up this restaurant when you’re in Chilmark!

No we do not take reservations. You can download the No Wait app and put your name in for a table . This app is not a reservation app it just helps you see how long of a wait it is .
