It’s hard to have it all ... great food, service and ambiance. State Road is well known for all three ... keeping that way year after year is simply ... very special .

Way over priced! The food is just average. The cheese tasting is 18 dollars and you only get 3 little pieces of cheese. Octopus salad was drenched with mayonnaise.

Really enjoyed my first visit to this restaurant. We sat at the bar on labor day weekend and was glad it was not busy. We enjoyed several appertizers and wine and it was all delightful. Nice ambiance and good customer service. I will be back.

State Road has many excellent reviews across different outlets, although surprisingly is ranked #21 on the island here on Trip Advisor. The prices are so high that is creates an almost impossible bar. We loved all of the appetizers we got — Spanish octopus, Brussels...More

We visited in late August. Nice selection on the menu including a vegan option. Staff felt fully invested & passionate about the chef and his philosophy. Desserts were wonderful. Kuddos to the Pastry chef.

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.
