We had a wonderful experience last evening. We were in Oak Bluffs and thought we’d try The Good Life; as we had heard it was under new ownership. As it turns out the owners are the manager and chef, Erin and Hal Ryerson respectively. The building is in an original Victorian house and it has been redecorated and improved where... More

This restaurant is in a former home, at the end of the main drag in Oak Bluffs. It's charming and small, and ideal for couples or small groups of friends. We came at the end of the season so didn't see the outdoor patio but were very happy inside. There is a full bar with nice cocktails. I didn't take... More

During our 1 week vacation, we had dinner at Sweet Life twice! It was that good. Seated outdoors, under a canopy, with gentle lighting, wonderful cocktails and amazing culinary creations was just what we needed to reconnect with each other. It was perfect.

My husband and I shared a quiet dinner here for our anniversary. My husband had the halibut and I had the scallops. Both were delicious and the service was good. Overall, a good experience. Not giving it a five because I felt that the ambiance was slightly off.

We dined here for my husband's 40th birthday and it was a very special meal! I had the salmon and he had the scallops and they were both delicious plates. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. I had asked that they do something special for his birthday but I don't think they got the memo so that was a bit... More

I was here on a Weds. in September. I was dining alone and was so impressed that they were accommodating on where i wanted to sit. The outdoor patio is enclosed by a hedge which is adorned with white lights. Fresh food, I have a farmers salad with green goddess dressing and scallops that were to die for. Blueberry pie... More

We were seated outside on a wonderful cool evening. We started with first class oysters and moved on to scallops and duck. Really great compositions on the plates and attentive waitstaff. Also enjoyed their wines by the glass. Definitely would return.

Creative dishes in a nice patio area or a cute indoor area. I believe it is a old house. Great attentive service, everything was perfect!

I had dinner there with my wife and was disappointed. Although the setting was very nice the food was mediocre and very expensive. We both had duck which was served very rare and was tough and tasteless. The bread was great.
