Concierge.com's insider take:

The view of Edgartown's harbor and lighthouse just outside the picture windows of the Harbor View Hotel's Water Street restaurant competes with the kitchen for the diners' attention. But the food here is up to the challenge. Chef Josh Hollinger is classically trained in French cuisine, but at Water Street he focuses on New England favorites: He balances the silkiness of day-boat scallops with a snappy corn-and-lima-bean succotash and calls on the flavors of his childhood (Hollinger grew up on a 1,400-acre farm in Mennonite country) for his signature dish of Katama Farm chicken and gnocchi-like Mennonite dumplings in pan gravy. For the quintessential coastal dinner, tie on a lobster bib and dig into the Vineyard Shore Dinner: steamed lobster, littleneck clams, linguiça (Portuguese sausage), boiled red bliss potatoes, and corn on the cob. Many menu items are served as small plates that families can share, though you can order most of them as entrées. Water Street also has one of the best wine lists on the island, plus an impressive choice of scotch, bourbon, cognac, Armagnac, and port.

Open mid-May through late October.
