One of the first restaurants I experienced on my first visit to the Vineyard, Atria offers a few different environments for you to enjoy your meal. The downstairs burger cellar and bar are great spots to relax after a long day at work, sipping on some of their infused beverages and munching on their amazing Calamari. Upstairs, the area is a little more fine dining, a little more elegant and a little more of what you’d like to go on a date with your special loved one. It’s relaxed but at the same time, evokes a sense of refined taste. Perfect for date night! And last but certainly not least, the outside of Atria is scattered with Adirondacks chairs and tables, where on a gorgeous summer day, you can sip on their famous Sangria and enjoy the views of Main Street Edgartown.
Sister restaurant of Atria, Hooked is located in Oak Bluffs and is a MUST if you’re on Martha’s Vineyard. You can check out the delicious food on my Hooked Facebook Album as well as reading a preview of the restaurant before it opened. We’ve visited only once and fell  in love with it; the lobster tacos were divine, the chowder was herbaceous and creamy, and our entrees were deliciously spiced! Dessert was genius, a Cheesecake Crumble. Creamy vanilla cheesecake topped and baked with brown sugar crumbles. Amazing!
Go there for their Peach, Taleggio, and Truffle Salad. Let me just tell you, it’s THE best salad you’ll ever eat. Grilled peaches topped with melted Taleggio cheese, and crowned with an arugula salad with white truffle oil. Amazing. My mouth just watered thinking about it. Tucked in Nevin Square Plaza is where chef Kevin Crowell creates outstanding and imaginative dishes that will blow your senses. Service is pristine and welcoming, and the drinks are crafted with a delicate hand. Sit at the bar and enjoy your meal while chatting up with the bartender about where to go for ice cream after your meal.
State RoadRestaurant
With their gardens just outside of the restaurant and them sourcing for the best local farms on island, how can they not be one of the best restaurants on island?! State Road describes itself as a “contemporary American tavern”, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner is a spectacular setting. As the name states, it’s located on State Road, and definitely worth the drive. Try their house-made ricotta cheese and their scallops in white gazpacho if possible (their menu changes nightly, but some items make the cut for the next day!)

I’m not going to say that Nancy’s food is the BEST on island, because honestly, it’s not. They’ve got a delicious quesadilla and an awesome Lobster Mac & Cheese, but the rest is typical Vineyard food, nothing too special. What makes Nancy’s in Oak Bluffs special is the view; grab an outside table before sunset and enjoy your meal while you’re amazed at one of the most gorgeous sunsets on the Vineyard. Pinks, purples, greens, yellows, burnt oranges….all the colors you’d ever imagine and more, all while you eat some good food!
