Beach Road restaurant, sister restaurant to the popular State Road restaurant in West Tisbury, is getting ready for business. The restaurant, in the space that Saltwater restaurant used to occupy, is expected to begin serving dinner this week, and will be open for dinner at 5:30 pm six days a week (excluding Mondays). Plans for a coffee bar and takeout options are in development.

The menu will adhere to the same quality as State Road, which recently won Best of the Vineyard 2015 for Best Fine Dining, as well as recent honors from Wine Spectator and Best of Boston. Beach Road will offer more family-style options, and a seafood-centric menu, along with serving wine and beer.

Executive Chef Austin Racine will lead the charge on the restaurant’s menu, which will be managed daily by Chef Sean Yancey. Both chefs have honed their skills for years working together at State Road.

Seating will be available in the dining room and the screened-in porch, and once open, day-of reservations can be made by calling 508-693-8582.

Beach Road restaurant is at 79 Beach Road, Tisbury Marketplace, Vineyard Haven.
