Supposedly, this is a great place. A lot of people we know like it. But we haven't been back since June 2009. We were there for an anniversary dinner and I ordered an expensive NY Strip Steak. After delivering our meals, the server did not return until we were finished. She saw most of my steak remaining and asked if... More

Bill, We at Nantuckets would like to apologize for the service from 7 years ago. Like most restaurants in the area, there is a lot of change over in staff and dining experiences in that span of time. We would like to think that you would give us another chance to make your experience more enjoyable with us. Once again,... More

To begin, we were greeted promptly by friendly staff and shown to a table in one of several cozy dining areas. Our server was great and the food was superb. We would heartily recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fine quality dining experience on the coast. Because of the time of year, many of the beach-focused places were... More

I recommend sitting in the bar area for a relaxed environment with a little more upbeat feel. Delicious appetizers and main courses with good service. You can not go wrong with any of your food choices.

We went to Nantucket's for dinner Friday night. We made reservations for 5 @ 6pm and the table was ready for us when we arrived a little before 6pm. I started off the evening with a Manhattan. It was perfectly made. My sisters had the Pink Cosmos, which they all enjoyed. I had the Cream of Crab soup and the... More

We have visited Nantuckets Taproom (Bar area) during both the months of May and September at least once a week, most times, twice a week. We thoroughly enjoy both the relaxed atmosphere and fabulous food and service. Beginning with the BarTenders--Dave, Dulaney, and Brian--who anticipate every need accompanied by the outstanding food. On most occasions we opt for the Scallops... More

Three adult family members present, I'd take only adults to this restaurant. Anyway not my first visit and everyone exceedingly happy with the menus and what was selected. Always crowded when visiting. Last on Saturday night out of season. Limited nearby parking.
