  • Great food!!
    Wooodstocked
    Dined on 9/11/2014
    The food at Nantuckets was phenomenal!! I started with the cranberry-pecan salad (which was top-notch!!), moved onto the Lobster Shepard's Pie (delicious!!), and finished off with the Key Lime Cheesecake (which was so fresh and subtle on the Key Lime - perfect!). The waitress was very friendly, but rough-around-the-edges...but as I can be rough-around-the-edges too, this was not a problem for me! I can see how others may complain about the service though. Everything came out VERY quick - almost too quick, but at least we had time to finish each course right before the next one would show up. Parking is TOUGH, so allow some time for that! I would definitely return to this restaurant...maybe to check out the bar next time (was lively!)!

    The Chef/Owner has been aware of and sympathetic to the need for some patrons to remain Gluten free. As long as 10 years ago when most restaurants were ignorant ,Nantuckets knew about the need and trained their staff accordingly. Our last visit this past weekend was wonderful. The menu clearly stated which options were gluten free or could be modified and their was a nice variety to choose from. Our waiter was knowledgeable helpful and unobtrusive. Even though he was fully booked we never felt neglected. An A+ in all categories.

  • After Labor Day Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    We had dinner on Labor Day after most of the crowds had cleared out of town. The restaurant was still very crowded and looked like the bar was pretty packed as well. It took awhile for our server to to get to our table to take our drink order. However, after that she was very attentive. The food was good, fresh and served hot right from the kitchen. I had the special which was red snapper and it was prepared very well. My brother in law had the filet mignon and he said it was the best steak he'd ever eaten. We were pleased that the kitchen was able to omit the lobster from the lobster mac and cheese for my son who is not fond of it. Overall, it was a very nice dinner to celebrate the end of summer.

    It's really true that the server makes the difference. We did not have our favorite server.....and it really made a difference. Find one at this place that's good and it will make a difference.

    Clam chowdah awesome, rack of lamb not worth the cost. Small, fatty and less taste than expected for the cost of $37. Came out raw, returned and then returned overdone. Service excellent. Will probably not return.

    I have passed by this restaurant for many years. We decided to try it out for my son's 19th birthday. It was more than what we expected. The staff at the front door was warm and welcoming. Our table was ready for us and our server was just fabulous, very outgoing and always had a smile. I told the staff that this was a birthday celebration and our served arrived at the table just as we sat down and sprinkled confetti on the table. She could not have been more accomodating. Love this place and will definitely return when I go back to the beach.

    Enter the door and go left to a really nice bar experience or go right to dining. Either way Nantuckets is a great experience. We went again for dining and were not disappointed and never have been. Of three rooms the middle room is a little crowded with tables but still you are not too close to your neighbor table. The service is prompt and the wait staff experienced and efficient. It amazes the memory for all the specials. The food is always original in creativity and taste. Our trio had bouillabaisse, salmon and rare beef tenderloin. All were perfect in preparation and presentation. Whether for a special occasion or come-as-you-are informal, Nantuckets is a welcoming and fine choice. And reservations are welcome.

    Nantucket's remains one of the top places in the Delmarva peninsula. Great food with a wonderful chowdah, excellent fish selections, and I dessert to blend perfectly. 5 years in a row and never a disappointment.

    Nantucket's has a wonderful menu and great staff. I wanted one of everything! Parking is very limited, the owner came out and helped us find a spot. There were two loud tables. This is part of dining out, however there I could hear my friends at my table!

    Corteous, prompt service from hostess to table, beautiful decor, upscale yet beach casual feel. Not so kid friendly...6 yr old drank water and milk from wine glasses and the kids menu was verbal. Salads were fantastic, crab special in an avovado half delicious, and shrimp and grit cake quite tastey if you took a bite with all components...the andouille had the most flavor -grit cake and shrimp mild tasting without it, cream sauce thin. Waitress attentive, forgot one or two things, but made up for it. Rather pricey, but worth it, glad we went, would go again, and recommend.

    We ate here on our last night in Fenwick and thoroughly enjoyed it. Not a typical tourist restaurant. Service was excellent, menu is interesting and diverse. And the wine list has high quality wines at very little mark-up (while lower priced wines still carry a pretty big mark up over retail).

    reservation system was great. hostess was fabulous.. very pleasant, helpful and engaging. waiter was fast talking, and hard to understand. made us wait when the other table arrived. food was great for the stuffed pork chop, less than fair for the pasta seafood dish. sat in the front porch room that was bright and quaint. the others seemed dark and too mysterious.

    This is the second meal I enjoyed at this casual fine dining establishment. The lobster mac n cheese is outsatanding. The tenderloin of pork is seared to perfection, and flavored perfectly with the apple cider vinegar demi glaze. Even the vegetables served were perfectly steamed and seasoned. I highly recommend Nantucket's to anyone.

    Wonderful experience. The hostess staff made an extra effort to seat us upon arrival when I told them that I had made a reservation thru OpenTable. We were seated at a small table for two in a separate front room which had a nice romantic atmosphere. Our waiter Rob was efficient and skillful. The salmon entrée was superb. The filet mignon was not the most tender that I've had but was prepared exactly as requested. The Bogle sauvignon wine we chose was also a great choice. This was one of the most memorable dining experiences we've had in recent memory and capped off my girlfriend's birthday in the best way. We look forward to returning to Nantucket's during our next stay in Bethany.

As you know, it is easy to cook fish incorrectly - but it is always perfect. Oh my, the scallops! The EXCELLENT waiter in the front room.
