We had a late dinner, having traveled we ordered a selection of four appetizers. We tried the tempura shrimp, the eel over rice, the crab and Brussels sprouts with apples. All were good size, very tasty and enjoyable. The tres leeches was a different dormant with strawberries on top which I think distracted from the overall flavor. The service was... More

It surprise me that Town does not more aggressively market their Sushi. It is awesome! We make a point of eating here every time we're on Nantucket.

We thought it would be nice to eat at their outdoor tables, but they were reserved.We ate inside and were told that we had an hour to eat even though it didn't look busy at the time. We ordered the the Vietnamese chicken wings for an appetizer- I sent them back because when I bit into the first one it... More

After a large brunch at noon, we wanted something small but delicious for dinner, and we lucked out and hit the right spot! Everything was freshly prepared and delectably delicious! Highly recommended!

Some of the best Sushi on the island...recommend an outdoor table. Located in the heart of downtown. If you are lucky to stay at The Nantucket Inn and Conference Center take their van to downtown visitor center and walk is two minutes away.

Overrated. I was the only one who enjoyed her meal; it was a special (halibut) and very good. Tandoori chicken tough. Thankfully we ordered grilled nan so no one went hungry. Worst part of evening was the hostess who was rude and condescending. Our server, Constantino was superb and made up for the poor start to the evening although he... More

We arrived a little early and decided to have a drink at the bar. After a somewhat long wait while the bartender was talking exclusively to two other guests, he came over and asked what he could get for us. We asked if there was a drink menu and that seemed like a chore. Shouldn't a bartender just offer that... More

Loved the outdoor setting. However, the service and presentation were quite mediocre. We each ordered the lobster roll. While lobster salad was okay the roll was a cheap hot dog bun. Not taste. We had a choice of fried, chips or greens. The greens were a pile of underdressed lettuce. We asked for more dressing what came was an inedible... More

Not one of the most talked about in Nantucket but a great meal in a great setting. Lobster FraDiavolo was excellent, service was great and the atmosphere really works. I would highly recommend.
