The wait staff was not as attentive as other restaurants on the island. However, the food was terrific.

Great but super slow bar.....
Always a favorite when on Nantucket...... Just can't figure out why it takes 15-20 minutes to get our drinks from the bar.....have to have a drink before going next time and not be in a hurry for the next one!

Perfect Dinner - Historic setting.
A terrific meal in an elegant enclosed porch. The Char was perfectly prepared but surpassed by my starter - the scallops on a fried green tomato. Would have had 5 portions of this - quite amazing.
My companions meal was equally impressive, smoked trout followed by pork tenderloin. Very fresh food, great flavors, elegant presentations.
My only negative complaints, the plastic folding chairs (it is a porch) were not a match to the elegant setting. In addition, a large group of young girls in a bachelorette party were lively and fun to observe, but a bit too noisy for me.

A lively and memorable dining venue with a very creative chef. Casual and sophisticated, but crowded with small tables. Excellent food and young attractive staff.

We celebrated our 25th here. It was the ideal choice. The right blend of food and ambience. Spectacular menu options (a tuna special put on the board due to a fresh catch that morning). Noise level was perfect for an intimate evening.

A Nantucket Must
You get a real sense of Nantucket as the dining room is divided into small, quaint spaces and each table is hand painted with a game board lit by a giant hurricane lamp. Dark atmosphere and the table becomes your private world.
The menu is outstanding and the food is better than the menu.
It's a "Must" if you visit Nantucket!

Honestly, one of the best
Honestly, one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at from the ambiance to the service to the meal (the food was outstanding). Truly outstanding, and as a hard to please New Yorker that is saying a lot!!

The food was top notch. Menu
The food was top notch. Menu might be limiting for some. I guess the only drawback I had was the place itself - old and I thought a little too dark. Just didn't seem very summery too me.

The food preparation and presentation at American Seasons is truly exceptional. We've enjoyed some of the best restaurants on Nantucket, but none, in my opinion, are better than American Seasons. Our reservation at Figs at 29 Fair by Todd English was cancelled because of a gas leak in their kitchen. So, we all agreed to go back for a second time to American Seasons to assess whether it really was as good as we imagined earlier in the week. We all ordered something completely different the second visit, and it also was equally phenomenal. The service is as outstanding as the food, too. We particularly enjoyed the charming servers, three of whom are from Bulgaria.

delicious - Day Boat Scallops Bartlett’s Farm Fried Green Tomatoes & Smokey Crayfish Butter
terrific flavors - Summer Succotash & Fried Pickles
hearty! - Farro “Risotto” Mushroom Broth, Summer Vegetables, Vermont Cloth Bound Cheddar, Soft Egg
as a southern raised gal, the fried pickles and green tomatoes were spot on!

We will be back
Its our 4th yr in Nantucket but first time to try American Seasons. Why did we wait!!! This place is wonderful. The service is fantastic - the barmaid was particularly helpful. The chicken nugget is to die for. Delicious. Lots of charm and a nice busy vibe.

We have come to American Seasons year after year and it never fails to disappoint - excellent food and service. Always a memorable meal and never a morsel left.

Quaint perfect spot
We loved everything about our meal at American Seasons, but were disappointed the small plates weren't offered on the patio-only at the bar. That had been one of our deciding factors; however, what we did get was delicious, and the experience made it all ok.

As usual, superb !
Another great meal at American season. Wonderful food, portions and service

Attentive servers, creative menu, relaxed ambiance, impressive wine list. My only regret is waiting so long to try out American Seasons! It literally was one of the best meals I've ever had anywhere. I highly recommend the carrot terrine with burrata cheese and ginger-- so flavorful and innovative. I hardly ever stray from a standard beet salad that I order as an app wherever I go, but this was a welcome change. I also suggest the Flying Elvis for dessert. The chocolate ganache is sinfully rich and delicious! Can't wait to go back soon!

First visit to Amerian Seasons
We liked the charm and atmosphere at the restaurant. The food was inventive and well prepared.
I had squab that was perfectly cooked, flavorful and juicy, however the portion was miniscule.
I communicated that to the server after she asked how it was. I suggest a larger squab or two.
The wine recommendation was outstanding and the desserts were very good. We will return
and enjoy American Seasons again.

cannot be missed
This was one of the best meals we've ever had, and not just on Ack. We started with the kimche pancakes and Bartlett beet salad - both very tasty and balanced. For entrees we had the salmon and sirloin..both were a amazingly textured and delicious. Great wine selection to choose from and cannot wait to go back! Great for a romantic dinner on your 1 year anniversary trip.

Don't miss it!
Celebrated my birthday with a group of friends. All 8 of us had exceptional meals. Excellent!

We have eaten here many times and always find ourselves going back. Just a great spot. My only note would be it can be a bit dark at night and since the location is historic, the seating can be tight for larger parties of 4+. Otherwise, outstanding and one of our favorites!

We love this restaurant. Orla and Michael do a great job. The menu is a challenge for those without imagination and knowledge of the nomenclature. Get past this and you'll have a wonderful meal.

We had a fantastic meal during our recent stay for the Xmas Stroll on Nantucket. Especially memorable were the Nantucket bay scallops-little nuggets of sweetness with that touch of brine from the ocean. Every ingredient in each dish was of the highest quality and the chef married the flavors together to bring out the best in each dish. We really enjoyed this restaurant.
