Located on the nautical mile but not on the water side of the street this restaurant caters to families and older diners . The food is delicious and they have a pre-fix menu.

We love this restaurant, it's quiet and scenic. This visit, we had 6 people with us. We arrived before 6:00, and had early bird. Included: soup, salad, entree and dessert. All of us enjoyed our food, mostly specials.

Many visits to this gem of a restaurant make a compelling case for five stars. Every time we go, we are warmly welcomed by the Nautilus Team. It feels much like a private club must feel. Chuck sees me and starts mixing my favorite cocktail...More

Dined at the bar on a 2+ pound steamed lobster. From the bar tender to the guests a rousing good time was had. Great food, well served in a fun, nautical atmosphere cannot be beat. Will be back.

My only complaint about the Nautilus Cafe is that it is too small. The food is consistently excellent, the service the same. One problem I encountered at this restaurant is the two for one lobster nite. The price wasn't the same that it normally is...More

This is a good quality but basic seafood restaurant. The fish is presented without any fanfare - sautéed scallops on a plate, sautéed sole on a plate. It you want a vegetable or starch it is an extra charge. (Try the creamed spinach which is...More

The halibut and seared tuna were excellent, with sauces that complimented, but didn't overwhelm, the fish. Beautifully presented and thoroughly enjoyed. Caesar Salad was flavored nicely, with ample cheese and good croutons. Service attentive and not at all intrusive. We were there on a Sunday...More
