Great new addition to the Nantucket dining scene! Excellent food, great bar. Service was slow but competent. Front dining room could use some improvement.

Great new addition to the
Great new addition to the Nantucket restaurant scene. We really liked the share small plates concept. Everything we ordered was amazing especially the potato cubes. Really interesting cocktails. Our waiter was very good at offering suggestions on how much to order. Lively, fun atmosphere. Definitely on our top list

Food is outstanding. Our server
Food is outstanding. Our server was very helpful in helping us naviagate the menu, we had never heard of the nutrious value of "African Bee Pollen," it tasted great in our drinks. It is pricey but worth the value if you are a person who enjoys food and isn't afraid to take food risks. It would have been challenging if our server wasn't as well educated on the menu, she did not steer us wrong.

The Tater Squares have it!!
We had a fabulous experience at this lovely restaurant. Three of us ordered a wide variety of the appetizers and then RE-ORDERED the Tater Squares to accompany our entree! So wonderful. We will do it again!!

Great food and fun menu concept.
Great food and fun menu concept. Service a little inconsistent. Some real highlights on the menu include Pork Ums, yum! Desser not up to the quality of the rest of the menu.

BEST new addition to ACK dining!
Cocktails are unique and tasty - but be sure to ask about the strength of the drink. Ambiance is lovely. Service is personable. The real star of Proprietors is THE FOOD. So many layers of flavor in every dish. They really hit the nail on the head, paying attention to textures, colors, seasoning... My mouth is watering just thinking about the shrimp a la plancha.
My one tiny critique is the wine:
-I wish they had 1/2 bottles
-the list is hard to follow (maybe I received out-of-order pages?)
-by-the-glass offerings are not nearly as exciting as the bottles. I had a great bottle of wine with my S.O. the first time we dined, and the second time we each just had a glass of wine (one gruner and one muscadet), which were sadly underwhelming.

One of the best on Nantucket!
Amazing food. I love anywhere I can go and pick and choose from small plates. Every bite was better than the next. Our favorite was the fluke ceviche plate. One of the best I've ever had. Great work!

Food and service were outstanding.
Food and service were outstanding. This was the second time we have dined here and the upstairs area was much quieter. This is a great place to go if you like to share your food. We tried many small dishes like the shrimp, fluke and pork. All were amazing. We even saved room for dessert which we don't normally have so could recommend the blueberry stick and the Morrocan doughnuts! Just a note, if you like "hungry-man" portions this is not the place for you. If you want to enjoy a delicious meal and not feel you've blown your diet...try it!

Looked like the bar was lively; tables are upstairs so that doesn't affect the noise level for diners. There were six of us. We ordered several small plates each and had fun tasting. The cocktails and the food are inventive, and more importantly, delicious. EVERYTHING was delicious. Service was excellent. This restaurant is a great new addition to Nantucket.

Second time here
Friends came to visit and we took them here. They would never have come on their own but said they loved it. I think we may have tried everything. The food is fresh and the balance of taste wonderfully creative. Bravo to the chefs!

This was our second visit, and we liked it even more than the first. I think we have had just about everything on the unique and delicious menu and, we would do it AGAIN!! Service was excellent; our server was very helpful in navigating the plates and choices. Bravo to the Proprietors!!!

Worth a visit.
Fabulous location and scrumptious food as long as you love sharing! Common plates of yummy eclectic dishes. Loud and casual with great music. Tables on first floor in back are not great views of backyard/service area, hence the 3 for ambience. Just needs some creative flowering or painted screens for future. Worth a try to evaluate.

delicious small plates
This is NOT the place to go with friends who are fussy eaters and expect a menu to have enough breadth to include their specific tastes. But it's great for taste explorers and people who like to try a couple of different things instead of one main course. They do offer several main course options but the fun is in the small plates. Really good the other night was a grilled and shredded pork concoction on a little bun and the grilled haloumi cheese (which I would like to eat again right now). Our waiter was excellent, knew the details of the menu items and stayed in range. Desserts were slightly exotic and delicious.

Excellent Dinner (& cocktail list!)
We were excited to try this new restaurant in Nantucket during our annual trip to the island and were not disappointed. The food was excellent - we loved the tapas style dining which gave us the opportunity to sample a few different dishes. The cocktail menu was quite creative - although I was skeptical, I tried the No. 4, which included Kale in the list of ingredients and was pleasantly surprised! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the island - the ambiance/updated decor was welcoming, they provided a high level of service and, as mentioned above, the meal was delicious!

Elegant small plates
Very imaginative cuisine in the former DeMarco location. Small plates are just the right size for sharing. Choices included Georgia Rock Shrimp on a "molten tamale" (polenta with a twist); king trumpet mushrooms, shaved "pork-umms" (Berkshire pork sliders on a biscuit with kimchee) and duck breast served sashimi style with quinoa. This Nantucket newcomer gets high marks!

Fabulous new Nantucket restaurant
Opened by the same owners of the always great American Seasons, The new hot spot - The Proprietors does not disappoint. The menu is so unique, do not fear, just trust that you will LOVE everything that arrives tableside. No 5 on the drink list is superb with an amazing addition of bee pollen - who knew?!? We also loved the grown up Tater cubes and the Socca tart (beet and whipped feta), fabulous. We are Nantucket homeowners and always enjoy a new spot to try, especially off season when most restaurants are closing for the season. The atmosphere was warm, cozy and fun. Enjoy!

Great food, great drinks, great fun
Love the ecliptic menu. Really interesting dishes. We ordered a few small plates and one was better than the next.
