We took our family for dinner. All of our dishes, filets, pasta, lamb, salmon, were excellent! Our waiter was well trained and matched service expected for a fine dining restaurant. Definitely make this a place to go to dinner while at the beach.

Always stop at Nantucket first nite in OCMD. Seating in the pub/bar area is at a premium but worth it. Happy hour prices on menu items which include specials and their regular menu items. Been enjoying Nantuckets food and service for 15 years and am...More
