We had two really nice meals here. It's centrally located in Edgartown and the food is quite good. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is lively. Wonderful fresh seafood.

We visited Alchemy during our stay on Martha’s Vineyard for an evening meal. We were very disappointed with the hugely over-priced food, small portions and bad attitude. When asking for simple requests such as to swap fries for a healthier option we were told ‘no...More

We enjoyed a few drinks and shared a meal in the upstairs bar area. The staff was friendly and attentive especially upstairs, where it seems more relaxed and comfortable, We consider ourselves fortunate that we were seated up there. Food was decent but the drinks...More
