Wonderful food, great atmosphere, awesome service. If your looking for fresh seafood you've found your place. The service was very good, the manager came up to our table a few times to ask how we were doing and how everything was. We stared off with...More

This is a wonderful restaurant for food, ambience, location , and , if seated well, for views. Their menu changes frequently, and is eclectic and elegant. Good for romantic dinners or family get togethers. Worth the price!

The 3-basil salad (with a base of local baby spinach) is one of the best salads I've ever had in my life (and I'm a New York foodie who craves greens). The swordfish and the scallops were amazing, and the panna cotta delicately flavored with...More

Dinner at Straight Wharf is always a terrific, grown up event. The food and service are excellent, wine list very good, atmosphere lovely amid the hustle and bustle of a Nantucket summer evening. The bar is also great, and in another room, behind 2 sets...More

This is a place we have visited for years.It does not keep getting better. A recent cucumber soup was excellent, but the sirloin was way overlooked. The prices certainly aren't going down. As for the wine list, you need a microscope to find a bottle...More

We seem to have stumbled into a 20-something social scene, which is great if you're 20-something, but not so much at the half-century mark. The service was friendly and extremely efficient and the food was very good, but half-way through the meal it became impossible...More

For years we have made a point to have dinner here. It isn't cheap, but it was always worth it. I reluctantly have to say last night was a major disappointment. The dishes were over seasoned. The spinach salad had too much basil, the lobster...More

Not really. Dressier than most restaurants on the island, as there were a few men in jackets, but not required. There were ladies in cute sundresses and men in golf shirts.../
