Reservations are tough to get in season for a good reason - the food and service are excellent! We started with the beets which had a unique flavor and freshness. The halibut entree with shiitake mushrooms and gooseberries set a new standard for us. The...More

I understand that we're eating on MV in Chilmark and so we should expect high prices but OMG were the prices high. Steak was $50 and that didn't include sides. It's BYOB (they have mocktails and you just need to provide the hard stuff) and...More

We enjoyed this restaurant last summer on a number of occasions. This summer, the cost of meals is sky high and the quality is nowhere near what it was last year. There is a corkage fee because of the BYOB and we completely support that....More

Chilmark Tavern is an up-island restaurant with a well-deserved reputation for good food and service in a casual but professional setting. Up-islanders are fortunate to have this local resource. Really good food and attentive, personal service. A little noisy.
