Overall I still really love this restaurant. My friends and I eat here at least twice a summer - once at the beginning in May/ Memorial Day, and once around Labor Day. What's good about this restaurant is that the staff seems completely turned on and fully fluent in the menu/ the service methodology/ etc at all points during the summer. In May when we were there there was not one point where service faltered. We were at a few other restaurants during that visit of the same caliber where service wasn't quite point and we received apologies from the management that the season was still early so people were still getting up to speed. No such experience at this restaurant, so cheers for great service. Our service this trip in September was also excellent - so after what I'm sure was a long summer the staff were still delivering high quality, flawless service. One thing - we've been coming here at least twice a year since 2009 and it it kind of annoying how they've changed the restaurant configuration. We use to routinely come here with parties of 12-13 people but now the most they can accommodate is 8, as they have replaced most of the large tables for more circular 8 people max tables. Makes for a bit more of a crowded dining room and it makes it tough for my friends and I as we usually have more than 10 people in our house. Still, though, the food is great (always get the clambake, the galette, and I enjoyed the Bartlett farm tomatoes this time) and all my other guests enjoyed it as well. the shortbread they serve with the bill continues to be delectable as well! Will continue to return. would recommend for a beautiful dinner on nantucket.

This was our best meal in Nantucket--expensive, but worth every penny! The room is very pleasant, service was professional, food was memorable! Make this your #1 choice in Nantucket.

Took some houseguests there for dinner and was disappointed. Service was so slow and the restaurant was really warm. Food was okay, but not great. Overall a disappointing experience.

We travel to Nantucket Island each summer for one day while we are visiting Cape Cod.
Each visit we try a different restaurant. This year we struck gold!
Straight Wharf is perfection.The food, service, and view are incredible.
Definitely a must visit!!

Writing about the lounge & bar here as they do not have a listing for the L & B alone. Got seated immediately on a weeknight at 7:30 as they don't accept reservations. Uninspired craft cocktail menu. Took too long to get our orders in. They they only brought the bread out at the same time as our appetizers? Beer was almost warm. I received my gazpacho -which should be the first time to be ready - only after everyone else finished their appetizers
