If you want a mediocre meal, poor service and a grumpy host come here. We had all of the above on our last visit and it will be our last visit! You will get a better meal at McDonalds. Avoid this restaurant at all times!!

We had not visited for some years before our recent visit, but remembered our previous visits fondly. This time, we were happy if not overwhelmed. The main dining room is a dark mix of formal furniture with cozy accents, with deep burgundy walls. Somewhat odd....More

Once again Nantucket's didn't disappoint. Food is so good. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meals. Friendly, efficient service.

Overpriced Specials. Off season specials are overpriced and disappointing. 19 bucks for a fatty rib eye topped with a pickled onion. 16 bucks for a minuscule scallop appetizer. The service was excellent.
