Ok I must say my drinks where great, but it all went down from there. I have been to Chesca's many times during my visit to Martha's Vineyard and it always was a disappointment . I like the location and ambience but the food is awful. It is so over priced too and very loud. I would go back for... More

Wow. We are stunned to hear this and it appears that we let you down in a significant way. I would appreciate knowing more about your "yucky" experience. What food you ordered, what you found so terrible about it, if you passed your complaints on to your server, who would have then alerted our manager and the kitchen....those kinds of... More

We came over from the Cape to celebrate an anniversary. This restaurant exceeded expectations. My paella was perfection. My partner had the short ribs and he loved them. We will be back here again for sure

Chesca's is a very good restaurant in Edgartown located on the Vineyard Square on North Water street. Very good food and a nice wine list! The short ribs and sole piccata are a couple of my favorites! My wife recommends the lobster ravioli with scallops. And the NY strip isn't bad either!! They have a big open porch with rocking...

Chesca's Restuarant is an excellent venue to get great Italian food at reasonable prices. Large portions.

We had dinner here and the food was very good. They have a great wine list. I had the mussels which was steamed in coconut milk, garlic, etc. and was delicious. I had a glass of Chardonnay and the Key Lime Pie for dessert. We also had the simple pasta which was pasta sauteed in olive oil and garlic. We... More

We've eaten here almost every year for the last 10 years while vacationing on the Vineyard. It tends to be a little bit noisy in high season but the food is consistently good and we didn't have to wait too long for a table.

We were visiting Martha's Vineyard with our oldest children and grandchildren, and chose Chesca's among a number of restaurants to visit. Even though we didn't have a reservation, we did not have to wait long. Be prepared: it is not for the faint of wallet, but for upscale dining, it is second to none. May I say that it was... More

Chescas is an island staple. The food is good big space for large groups and family friendly. However, it is a bit tired. So many of the local restaurants serve locally sourced food and have some updated items on their menus. Chescas has not changed much in years and the menu does not vary. That said, the food is good,... More
