Alas, a bit disappointing! Though we love the setting, and it was not our first time dining at the Dunes, I couldn’t say dinner was great. Food was average, my vegetable dish looked good but the eggplant was almost raw, not cooked enough. Service was friendly yet felt rushed, as in trying to remove plates when not finished. And though we had said we were celebrating a birthday, we had to ask for a candle on dessert and for spoons.
And hefty bill that did not seem worth it. Oh well, end of season fatigue?

Beautifully appointed, comfortable and cozy dining room and rooftop outdoor tables with view. Service was excellent. Food however, was so so, disappointing, not worth the price. Scallops were ok but not outstanding, came with inedible, stale, hard, and tasteless block of what was supposed to be polenta, and nothing else on the dish, no vegetables. The only side veggie you could add was an unappealing sounding eggplant dish for $18 bucks or so. For this price the entree should have been more completely concepted. My wife had the way-overpriced burger, was "good" but nuttin' special for that price. Too bad - the view, location and room were superb, but much better food can be had in Edgartown.

Thank you for patronizing the Dunes Restaurant and taking time to review your experience. My apologies for the less than spectacular food quality. I am surprised as we have gotten very good comments on the food this season, but as they say you are only as good as your last meal. The review has been shared with the culinary team for review and operational or technique changes to be made if deemed necessary.

We were seated late after our 7:30 reservation time. The waitress who came right over to get orders for appetizers and entrees as they were running late with all reservations. The menu was limited and the chicken entree which was on the menu - NOT a special - was unavailable. She advised that only chicken for 16 dinners had been delivered that day. She reminded us that they had been very busy over the week (serving celebs attending the party at the Obamas). When asked if we could substitute shrimp for the meal, she said she would check with the chef. She came back and said the manager said "NO" substitutes. I spoke with the manager - a bit snarky and condescending - who reiterated that they had been busy all week and the chef had his meals planned (apparently not as they had a full restaurant and only 16 chicken entrees). I pushed and she said she would speak with the chef. The chef came to the table and offered to graciously fix anything that we wanted. He substituted shrimp for the chicken and it was good. As to the restaurant, 1. Do not tell me that you have been busy. You are a for profit business. Isn't that your goal? 2. I do not care if you were busy. You took the reservation so fulfill the reservation. 3. Dunes forgot that it is patrons like myself who return year after year that make the restaurant successful not the one time visit from celebs. Dunes used to be my go to suggestion to first timers to the Island for dinner. I will no longer be recommending Dunes and mostly based upon the Manager's flippant and dismissive attitude. The chef and staff could not have been more accommodating and gracious. I will be recommending Bettini's at the Harborview Hotel in Edgartown. While always busy, it is never used as an excuse.

The water taxi at 5:30pm outside the Shanty in Etown, to the old fire truck shuttle to the Winnetu, to the delightful staff, setting, food and service. The grounds are beautiful and while we waited for our shuttle back to Edgartown we strolled down the beach path to watch the amazing crashing waves! A great family resort.
