A word from Brant Point Grill at the White Elephant
Brant Point Grill has been highly acclaimed as Nantucket’s premier steak and seafood restaurant. With a spectacular harborside setting at the landmark White Elephant hotel, Brant Point Grill is a sublime setting for dining al fresco on the fully heated Harborview Terrace or inside the beautiful dining room.
Executive Chef Tom Pearson offers a daily raw bar menu, native lobster arriving fresh every day, and US prime steaks grilled to perfection. Zagat survey described the restaurant as *“…an idyllic setting right on Nantucket harbor...excellent seafood and steaks, and no one complains about the exquisite views.”*

Diner Reviews
  • "We had a 7:45 PM reservation and we were seated immediately. Good time management, not often experienced in the height of the tourist season. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Food recommendations were asked for and given honestly. Quality of the food was outstanding. Portion size appropriate. Over all our quest to the Island was very impressed with the experience, as were we."

  • "Good food, great service, wonderful sommelier. Call ahead to ensure there will not be a private outdoor event as you pay a lot of money to eat here and when they have private events they not only close the outdoor patio but also close the curtains. I wish we had saved out $300 dollars and eaten here on a night when there was a view (which is really what you're paying for). Food was good, but uninspired aka nothing special."

  • "PWe heard a lot about white elephant and how the food was great there. There weren't many options on the menu our food was definitely below par. Ordered house made ricotta it wasn't even seasoned- very bland, the fish entrees we ordered were cooked with so much butter that it over powered the flavor of the fish, the goat cheese cheesecake literally tasted like you were eating a stick of goat cheese. Overall disappointing."

  • "Terrific experience. Our food was great every time we visited. The fluke was fresh and prepared perfectly and well complemented. Lobster salad was seasoned expertly. Staff was engaging and genuinely glad to serve. The outdoor view of the sailboats in the harbor so perfectly captures the island. Relaxing. We've vacationed in Nantucket for many years and this is the certainly the best restaurant on the island."

  • "Beautiful view, delicious filet mignon; kids menu; the only time I've seen a surf & turf burger on a menu. The offer 1/2 bottles of wine."

  • "Lovely dinner, very lovely spot with fabulous views. The quality of food was very good and the service was good as well. I would definitely recommend BPG to anyone visiting Nantucket and looking for a restaurant with a view."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We don't mind spending a lot, as long as we get what we paid for. The food was good but not great. Four of five meals were delivered together and one came ten minutes later leaving us all watching our food get cold. The chef, we were told, forgot to make the dish. Bill came to $390 with tip and this included three children. Left feeling as if we overpaid."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The view of Nantucket Harbor is breath taking. Though my husband and I went for lunch; brunch had just ended and from the plates we saw going by, we are going to try that next time. I chose the New England Lobster Salad for my meal. It was delicious; the lobster was plentiful and the dressing was light. My husband chose Ipswich Fried Clams. The container of clams was over flowing and the clams were juicy and not over cooked. The french fries were thick, hot, and very tasty. The special drink list had many really good options to choose from. You can't go wrong here!"

  • "Portions way too small, meat not the greatest cut and the price was obscene for what you were served."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The restaurant has fantastic outside seating overlooking the water. The clam chowder was amazing, but my fluke was a little bland. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this restaurant for the amazing view and overall ambiance."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We made our annual trip to Nantucket and have eaten at this restaurant a few times before. Had an early reservation, so the service was good but on "island time." Our waiter, from Jamaica, was most cordial and friendly and he took time to chat with us while our food was being prepared. Probably that could not happen if we had dined later. My wife loved the fluke which she did not think she ever had before. My filet was delicious. The menu was limited compared to other places we have eaten but may be due to being on an island where presumably almost everything has to be imported. The view of the harbor is wonderful and watched kids playing on the lawn beyond our table."

  • "Excellent food and service. Fabulous view. We really enjoyed it."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "One of the best seafood buffet brunches I've ever been to. Great raw bar with oysters, clams, and shrimp. A bloody mary with lobster claws. Just fantastic and one of the best brunches in Nantucket."

  • "But you do not get the view if they are having a wedding which I did not know when I booked."

  • "Wonderful dinner in Nantucket! Outdoor dining was great and food was delicious. Would go again."

  • "The best restaurant on Nantucket. The food is consistently wonderful. The view is the best in Nantucket."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Amazing location, average food. Not impressed with new menu. Haven't been to BPG since 2012. Then food was excellent, now the dishes feel Spartan."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Better than just good, but not "very good". Had the NY sirloin. A nice portion, cooked perfectly, but the toughest piece of sirloin I've had. Just a hard-to-chew piece of meat. Unfortunately, the usually beautiful view was taken up by huge tents for the hosting of some event so the ambiance suffered. I ordered a simple vanilla ice cream for desert. Two of the scoops were fine. One was so freezer-burned it was inedible. It never should have been served, and that was disappointing. Nonetheless, this place stays on our list. Past experience has been excellent."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Brant Point Grill continues to serve the best Sunday brunch on Nantucket. Great food choices, wonderful service, soothing live guitar music. Whether it's just the two of you or the whole family, this venue never disappoints."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Advertised outdoor seating but that is only if a function such as a wedding is not happening. Clam chowder was excellent. Portions small. food good."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We were there for our anniversary, and on a quiet weekend so it felt like we had the place to ourselves. We had a table with the best view of the harbor- watching the boats roll in and out. We each had an amazing meal- perfectly prepared. Not so fancy it loses it's appeal but not so casual that you could get it anywhere. The staff was so pleasant attentive without over crowding. I am still riding high from our night at the BPG! "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "We made reservations for lunch on Sunday, not realizing that they only serve a buffet. That was way too much food for us, as we had eaten breakfast. They were very accommodative and allowed us to order from the lunch menu. Good was very good, but the lobster Bloody Mary was killer! Expensive but had large chunks of lobster on the skewer served with it-yum!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Our food was pretty good, but our waitress was bad. She forgot a dish and just wasn't nice overall. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We have attended many times for lunch or Sunday brunch which were both wonderful. However, this dinner was a great disappointment. We were the only patrons in the dining room. The menu selections were very limited, the portions were very small and the prices were very high in relations to the offerings. The service was the only constant that we have come to associate with this restaurant. We will continue to attend the Sunday brunch ( we have celebrated our daughter's birthday here for many years) and will also still attend lunch but will never go again for dinner. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "We decided to dine here based on the fact we were staying next door at The White Elephant. The restaurant was very quiet, only about 4 other tables were occupied and we would have preferred a more vibrant dining scene. The food was great. Highly recommend the clam chowder. However the $30 lobster Mac and cheese left some to be desired. Overall, the service was great, we left very full and satisfied with our meal. In retrospect though the meal was slightly overpriced."

  • "The food was outstanding and the service wonderful. If you're in Nantucket it's a must!"

  • "We checked into the White Elephant Hotel for three days and decided to eat dinner the first night in the Brant Point Grill. I had researched it and liked the reviews. A very large wine festival had just finished that afternoon and I suspect staff was tired. The dining area only had two other couples in it. Our server was great. She brought us bread and it was stale (Sunday evening). My clam chowder was hot, but average. The tuna was a nice cut of fish, but the preparation was also average. My wife had a wedge salad and got half a head rather than the usual quarter, but said it was good. She said her crab cake was average. Wine list is good. Had breakfast there next morning. Wife's over easy eggs had broken yolks and overcooked. "

  • "Definitely good food, nice atmosphere. But way too expensive for what it is. Food and drinks are not worth it. There are plenty of other notable restaurants on Nantucket."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "I realize we were on Nantucket off season but that should not affect the restaurants that are open. The service was adequate. People kept checking back to see how the food was but our "main" waitress disappeared. We had Caesar Salads that were extremely dry! We had the Surf and Turf...Steak was delicious but the Lobster was not cooked! Overall food was ok, but price for food was a little on the steep side especially since they were not prepared correctly. This was a Birthday Celebration so it was quite disappointing.Will not be returning."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The food at Brant Point is exquisite. My wife had the filet mignon and I had the NY sirloin, both were tender, melt in your mouth good. We had cauliflower fromage and whipped potatoes and as mundane as that might sound, each was truly delicious. We both agreed that this was the best meal we could remember. The drinks matched the food. My wife had the White Elephant martini and I a Southern Comfort martini and both were very well done. I would recommend the Brant Point Grille without reserve, but it is very expensive to create such a fine dining experience so for some of us a special occasion is often called for."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Right of us had a lovely lunch over Daffodil Weekend. Despite the rainy weather, we were warm & dry with the patio heaters and were able to enjoy the harbor view. Ramone, our waiter was extremely attentive and friendly."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We were seated in a protected outside area that is heated by electric space heaters. We dined in our coats, and were still uncomfortably cold. A lovely, tender NY strip was cold in a matter of a few minutes. Nice wine list and attentive service. But tough to enjoy your meal when you are uncomfortably cold. Make sure you ask for seating inside until the arrival of the summer weather."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Slow bad service. Cocktails not even close to normal. Boiled chicken with broth. 7 different diners all with the same experience. Too many great places to eat on island to go back here. Sorry. Lovely views. That's it. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Great food and atmosphere! The Easter egg hunt and Easter bunny were wonderful additions to have for my 5 year old. Service was fabulous as well. We loved the $5 fixed price for our 5 year old. Well worth it! "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "This used to be our favorite place to go for a nice dinner on Nantucket. Over the years the food quality has gone downhill and is no longer good quality for the price. Also used to be cozy and romantic and feels more sterile now."

  • "I've been to BPG many times and always had delicious food whether it's dinner, lunch or brunch. The service was not great this last time, but it was in the winter which isn't the busy season, but it was a busy weekend. Regardless, great view, great food!"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "We were there on the stroll weekend when they had a prix fixe menu. It must be the case that in order to satisfy many palates, you satisfy none. The food was bland, but the service was great. I would probably go back and give them one more chance, but I was disappointed."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "We chose to dine out this year for Thanksgiving as I am recovering from a broken ankle. BPG had turkey with all the trimmings plus salads, soups, carving station, raw bar- really too many things to mention. The waitstaff was very attentive as well. The only negative was it was quite expensive, almost $600 for 4 of us + our 2 year old grandson."
