Last meal here. Lovely wait service. But the chef knows nothing about its namesake, Nantucket. A scallop, that succulent creature, is destroyed by so much garlic and so-called lobster sauces. And salt. Everything is salted such that one could wonder how fresh the food really...More

In town on business, I stopped by on a Monday night for dinner. Let me start by stating that my rating has nothing to do with service. It was wonderful- to host accommodating and the server very attentive. I had read mixed reviews but the...More

We were told there was free cake with each meal (over $12) so we had to try for ourselves. Oh My Goodness! We were so pleased with the service as well as the food we had to get our cake "to go". I had the...More

I love steak and I'm always looking for a good steak house. We have tried Farm House and Stoney River, both very good but expensive. Nantucket is not a steak house because it serves EVERYTHING from roasted chicken, Cajun pasta, Greek Souvlaki, to Filet Mignon...More

The reason I say the best time to go is Tuesday and Saturday is because with a $13 dollar order you get a free slice (and it's a big slice too) of their mile high cake (your choice of the cake you want). I had...More

This is my favorite restaurant in the area. Service is good. They have prosecco, which is nice. I always get the lobster roll, which is authentic and delicious. Their bisque is also delicious, as are their onion rings (batter dipped - yum). They have homemade...More

We thought this placed looked cute, so we went inside. First - big smiles as we saw the cases filled with multi-layered cakes right as we walked in the door. Next stop, host/hostess station. Three people there, one on the phone. None of the three...More

Hmmm. We always visit on a Saturday night and choose the free option. :) Just called them because the prices for the cake aren't on their menu. The free cake is actually a HALF slice, and if you purchase it separately, it's... More
