A word from Met On Main
The cobblestones of Nantucket’s Main Street is home to the MET Restaurant Group’s fifth location, MET on MAIN. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a lively back patio, perfect for post beach cocktails. MET on MAIN, a European café with an island flair focuses on both simply grilled and creatively prepared dishes using the highest quality ingredients available including an abundance of Nantucket’s homegrown vegetables and the island’s fresh, local seafood. The core menu has some of the MET’s signature items but also features bold flavors that arouse thoughts of tropical retreats. The eclectic cuisine encompasses Asian, Mexican, Polynesian, and American flavors. One of the highlights of the menu is a tartare & raw bar. The Tartare Bar is the MET’s answer to sushi and offering anywhere from six to ten selections. The restaurant seats 70 people with additional seating on the patio. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to this restaurant two years ago. It was better then. There was nothing special about the food offerings."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "My biggest problem with this restaurant is the service. It was relatively empty when we arrived. After being seated we waited 10 minutes before a waitperson appeared. We could hear a group of them gossiping in the back. They didn't seem in any rush. This has been a problem before. It has dampened my earlier enthusiasm."

  • "We had dinner there out first night in Nantucket set the bar for expecting great good friendly service and fun place"

  • "We gave Met on Main another try in its second year, and were disappointed again. The service was very slow, a two course dinner took 2 hours. The food expediter had no clue who ordered what meal, but that's a common failing in restaurants today. Most import, it was over--priced, even for Nantucket. My scallop dinner had 3 small scallops and a potato latke for $33. At $11 a scallop it was a very poor deal. The tuna and salmon appetizer, at $19, was also expensive, but was fairly priced with lots of delicious salmon. The tuna was just ok, but still a good value. Met on Main has to decide whether it is a fancy Nantucket restaurant or a casual dining restaurant, it's trying to be both and failing. "

  • "We were there 3 times in one week and each one was better than the last, the poached lobster was outstanding!"

  • "Good food, good service. Outdoor patio was great. Menu was somewhat limited, but what we ordered was perfectly done."

  • "This is a great spot for a quick bite or a long meal. I particularly prefer the patio in back. Food is always tasty and the prices for the quality of service, ambiance, location and meal cannot be beat on Nantucket!"

  • "Now i know why i could get a table at Met on Nantucket, the place is empty the food was tasteless an expensive dissapointment"

  • "although known for breakfast, the dinner menu is fantastic. Fresh local ingredients expertly paired. The salads are a meal in themselves and the appetizers and sides are outstanding. Don't miss this new gem right on Main Street."

  • "food took 90 minutes to arrive, on a very slow night. I had the butter-poached lobster with gnocchi; I could not find any formed gnocchi on my plate, as they had all fallen apart and coagulated like mashed potatoes. Also, the prociutto had been thrown in the mix like thick strips of soggy ham. My mothers clambake broth smelled so much of old coolking oil, we could not try it. The lobster bisque wasn't bad, but it was thin and a little bitter."

  • "Great food and service! Nice ambiance. Great for a few drinks or a nice intimate dinner"

  • "A casual and well priced evening at a simple Nantucket restaurant. The caesar salad is worth mentioning. I loved the preparation, part chopped salad, part caesar with a tangy dressing and bread crumbs served in a wood bowl. A slight twist on a classic worth trying."

  • "This was our second visit. The food was great and the staff very friendly. We will definitely be back!"

  • "WE were seated near the doorway which proved to be very drafty and we asked them to move us, which they did right away. The bar area was very close to the tables and noisy but ok.. The sirloin was chewy and expensive, the cauliflower was great. The waitress was fantastic.."

  • "This was our first visit, and we were mostly very pleased. The menu had a limited range of choices, but it was imaginative, and each dish we ordered was impressive, especially the scallops carbonara appetizer. The service was quite good, except for their never-ending desire to keep pouring the wine (which was not served with an ice-bucket). The place is small, with perhaps too many tables and a bar right next to the tables, creating a very noisy atmosphere that made conversation difficult. I would recommend it for the food, but the noise is a drawback."

  • "As part time island residents who go back and forth year round, we were saddened when the Even Keel went out and hoped that any replacement would be a casual, fun place to drop in for B, Br, L, D, late night and bar nibbles. When we heard Met was coming (we live right near the Boston location) we weren't quite sure how the place would translate to Nantucket. We are very happy now and one or both of us has tried all meals there, inside and out (wow! Spectacular job on the patio) and although the food isn't always five star the effort made by the staff and the overall experience is absolutely first rate. And get the cauliflower side!"

  • "We booked through open table for the only open time of 8:15, when we arrived the restaurant was virtually empty. The Bolognese had hardly any meat I in It and was drenched in cheese. The frito mist was overcooked and covered in a mound of deep fried onions!"
    Dined on 9/12/2012
  • "Over-priced and everything was a la carte.. Music too loud, incongruent with the TVs at the bar and nice decor. We received sesame bread sticks and cheese, but didn't get an offer of more, even though there was a lot of cheese left. Food was good, a little innovated, but we were disappointed."
    Dined on 9/12/2012
  • "Host/Manager didn't greet our party in a welcoming manner. Didn't acknowledge our party as we waited at the podium. When he finally did, not a welcoming tone "just be with you in a minute." He was engaged in conversation with one of the staff. Place wasn't overly crowded. Not a good first impression. The food was decent, but service overall mediocre at best. The outdoor patio was beautiful....best part, but I probably wouldn't go again."

  • "So far so good. Nice addition to the Nantucket dining options. We went on a Monday in August and it was a tad too quiet but. Our server was very helpful and pleasant. Our salad , swordfish very really good and not over seasoned. We each tried a tartar and loved them both"
    Dined on 8/27/2012
  • "The loster salad was lovely but the rest of the meal was uninspired at best. The menu is quite limited and the atmosphere was much less warm and welcoming than the first time we went there and our waiter was very neglectful and forgot our drink orders and appetizers -- we ahd to remind him twice and told him to forget about it. We won't be back anytime soon."
    Dined on 8/15/2012
  • "Food was tasty especially the fish. The vegetable salad was fantastic. The cole slaw is a bit strange. It came out as a wedge of cabbage plus some sauce drizzled over it. I sent it back to have it chopped. Otherwise I couldn't eat it. A step up from Even Keel."
