We go every summer for dinner and look forward good (sometimes very good) food in a great setting. The setting is still great. The food and the service are currently poor. Initially, we thought the sparse menu might be hiding simple, well-executed dishes with lots of local fare. Wrong. Our starters (tuna crudo, a tomato salad, and a beet salad)...

I am a summer Vineyard resident and always consider it a special trip to go to The Beach Plum. The location is perfection...and the sunset is a treat. This is one of the premier spots on the island and with that comes certain expectations...service being one of them. I brought a friend from NYC for dinner for the second time....

Dear Picky Mom, Thank you for your thoughtful review and suggestions. I am very sorry that our service was disappointing and will look into the specifics. Because I see every day that our team really, really cares my first though is to wonder if we ( and thus you) were suffering from late August fatigue. Don't know yet but we...

We have been dining at The Beach Plum Inn for 20 years, but unless there is new ownership and a new chef, we will never dine there again. The site is as great as always, but our dinner on July 30 with our house guests who like to dine there every year when they come to MV was a complete...

Everything was comfortably perfect....pace, decor, Dana our waitress. Even the table for two which was really made for two and not tucked away in a corner. But the crowning glory was the food. I stepped out of my comfort zone with chicken hearts and rabbit and was delighted. The chocolate torte with caramel and salt....will dream about that for months...

Had cocktails out on the deck. Had gorgeous views. We step into the resturant and it is 90 deg In the resturant. We are informed that they do not have striped bass. We order the tuna to find out 15 min later that they don't have tuna. To make up for it the chef sends out inedible raw clams. We...

This restaurant was recommended by the owner's of the B & B we were staying in in Edgartown. They had said it was about a 30 min drive and it was but we were intrigued by the idea of a chef using home grown ingredients. We were there on a weeknight so it was not too crowded and we thought...

We recently ate at the Beach Plum Inn, gone are the nice table cloths instead replaced by raw wood tables (which happens to be a health code violation in most States). We had an 8:30 dinner reservation, of the 2 entrees on the menu they were out of the pasta and ragu of one so most of us at the...

We stayed here for a wedding in May and loved our time at the Beach Plum. What a location! Menemsha is definitely a quiet, secluded area of the island that has views that will leave you speechless. The Inn feels rustic and quaint, but always clean and comfortable. The sunset from our house was one of the best we've seen....

We dined at The Beach Plum Inn with friends who had been to the restaurant many times over the years. We had our cocktails outside enjoying the beautiful view and were well cared for by the staff.
