State is the go to place in our mind on MV. Great dinners, wonderful Brunch with a diverse well thought out menu. A place that locals as well as tourists return to.

We selected State Road to celebrate my husband's birthday. Given that it was April 22nd, we expected a bit of a off-season Marthas Vineyard vibe. However we found prices to be at the top of the range and a bit disappointing. We shared an appetizer of razor clams which were good. I had halibut which for me being on a... More

Disappointing Valentine's dinner. Menu was fairly limited, especially for people with food allergies, and portions were very small. The braised short ribs with faro were very tasty, but I expected more than two 11/2 inch pieces of meat for the $24 appetizer price tag. Brussels sprouts were so salty they were inedible and sent back. Cavatelli with duck was also... More

I've visit here several times each year, usually once each season. Personally I like the winter best as it is less crowded and I like the beautiful fireplace, I think it adds a very nice element to the ambiance of the dining room. The food is quite good and each time I am pleasantly surprised in some fashion with the... More

Cozy, charming, welcoming friendly and great food and service all describe this country-themed restaurant. Menu is interesting if not extensive. Splurged on the Wagyu beef and was not disappointed. Juicy, tender and delicious. Roasted oysters also very good. Sweet breads were awesome. Great cookies for dessert. Certainly will return off and in season.

My group of 7 had a variety of fish, steak, appetizers, drinks, and deserts. While the meals were generally flavorful, all 7 entrees arrived lukewarm or cold. We were on the porch near an extremely noisy group that just would not stop screaming. Neither the waiter nor maitre d' did anything to quell the noise; just a smile and shoulder... More

The menu has lost some old favorites over the last month (new chef?), and that's too bad. We went the other night and while the folks who ordered the burger were very happy (though there were far fewer greens than there used to be), those who ordered some of the new things were decidedly not happy with the presentations or...

Having been to State Road for many delicious meals over the last four years, I was sincerely disappointed by our recent dinner there on a Saturday night. The portions were skimpy and the quality of the food was definitely sub par. My thin slice of pate was served on a large plate with just a dab of mustard, a few... More

I wish the new chef all the best but please don't take favorites off the menu. No more jalapeño grits at Sunday brunch, no more patty melt on burger night, no more ricotta in its usual way other nights. Not necessary to take the faves away. I hate to see what is so good disappear even if you make other... More

Glad I finally got a chance to have dinner here, having heard so much about it. The interior is very interesting, though I found it very noisy and very dark. The food was very good and very fresh. Had a burger and shared a salad. However, it found it overall a bit over priced for what we received. The service... More
