  • My new favorite at the Beach
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    I love this restaurant! There are not many really good restaurants at the beach, but Nantucket is an exception. This was my second time there and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. There is something for everyone on the menu that includes everything from burgers to filets as well as seafood, salads and a large list of appetizers. This is definitely my new favorite and I would highly recommend it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    My husband and I have been dining here for years and we can always count on great food, drinks, and a comfortable and welcoming feeling. The crab cakes are our favorite, but the specials never disappoint! On this visit, although still very good, the cakes appeared to have a bit more 'filler' than usual, which was a bit disappointing. We appreciate consistency and it was surprising as Nantuckets is typically consistent.

  • 1st time and not the last
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/10/2014
    We enjoyed the entire experience. The food was very good as was the service. The ambiance in the room we were seated was quiet and nicely decorated. There was a variety of options to choose from the menu and included sandwiches for those in our group that were not hungry for a dinner. The garlic mashed potatoes were excellent as was the filet- perfectly cooked! The crab cakes were loaded with crab and tasty. The panini had a generous amount of chicken. It is difficult to please a party of four with different expectation but Nantucket's did just that. We will definitely return on our next visit. Parking does present somewhat of a challenge.

    I let the restaurant know ahead of time that it was my honeymoon, my wife's birthday, and that she was vegetarian. When we arrived, we had a table prepared in our own quiet room with confetti. It was amazing. The service was great and friendly. The food was incredible, and was a night to remember.

    My wife and I returned to the Nantucket during our recent visit to the beach. It had been a few years since we visited this area. It was, as we remembered, fabulous!! We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with great service. The Cranberry Pecan and Goat Cheese Salad with Maple vinegarette was the best!! (My wife purchased a bottle of the vinegarette to enjoy at home). Tuscan Salmon was prepared perfectly for my wife. It was crispy and surrounded with all the flavors of Tuscany.I enjoyed the Rockfish very much. It was seasoned and cooked to perfection! Kudos to Chef David. He is amazingly talented! Thank you for a romantic and memorable evening.

    It was our first time to Nantuckets and being locals we were quite surprised we had not heard about this gem at the beach. All of our courses from appetizers to entrees and finally on to dessert were creative, tasty and wonderfully displayed. We were celebrating a birthday and it was truly a memorable evening due to the good food and service received at Nantuckets. Crabcakes were some of the best we have had in the area and my steak was a very nice cut and cooked to perfection. We definitely will be heading back to Nantuckets soon.

    This is an excellent place to eat. Specials available every day and an excellent multi-preference menu. Our server was knowledgeable and entertaining. He was willing to adjust the menu offerings to suit a desire for scallops that was not listed. The drive from Ocean City was a bit long but worth the it.

    Went to Nantuckets for dinner on the recommendation of a friend. In Fenwick but just over the state line from Ocean City so an easy drive. A beautiful restaurant in every respect. Service was first-rate but unobtrusive. The food -- steak, bouilliabaisse, crabcakes -- all was wonderfully prepared, beautifully presented, and delicious. As for dessert, I particularly recommend the Bananas Foster bread pudding. In all, a lovely meal. I highly recommend!

    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!)!

    Dined on 9/6/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.
