I was looking forward to finally trying out Club Car as a history buff (it's the last remaining rail car of the Nantucket Railroad). Bouncer checked our ID's at the door. Got a couple seats at the bar, bartender asked to see our ID's again....More

We have summered on island for decades and The Club Car is one of our favorites. We especially like lunch in the old attached rail car where the bar is located. The limited size means a limited crowd and no overbearing noise. The lunch menu...More

Quite upscale in the dining room; bar seems a little more homey and apparently turns into a piano bar later in the night. Went with my mom and we had a lovely meal, very tasty with great service but be prepared to spend some money....More

The Club Car is an island institution re-imagined for the first time in 40 years. The restaurant’s classic railway car and antique elements are blended with eclectic, modern materials creating a fresh feel that balances old with new.

The Club Car’s understated sophistication exudes an approachable, carefree and convivial environment featuring a fun and boisterous bar with live piano that celebrates togetherness. The menu is inspired by California Cuisine with shared plates centered on vibrant vegetables and local seafood. The seasonal-based menu fosters local farmers, growers, fishermen and artisans.

Simply put, we love to eat and we love sharing food with others. This combination drives our passion to create and share authentic dishes that are intensely flavorful, naturally nourishing and always satisfying. When married with delicious drinks and close friends, The Club Car truly is the perfect place to gather.
