    My husband and I went for the first time. Our waiter was very nice, but there must have been something going on in the kitchen as we had to wait long periods between each course of dinner. The food was good but not to the degree I've seen in other reviews. The restaurant is beautiful and over-all we had a nice dinner.

    Probably the best seafood in the Greenville/Spartanburg area. Fresh choices very well prepared and large servings. Great wine list with reasonable markups. Don't let the fact it's attached to a Marriott Courtyard Hotel keep you away. This is fine dining with great service. Mark, our server was engaging, very well spoken, and fun! We were there celebrating an engagement and found out Mark was going to ask his girlfriend to marry him the next day. We hope she said yes!

    When traveling to Greenville, we always try to dine at Nantucket Seafood. Why? Fresh seafood perfectly cooked! They carry a small selection of cold water oysters from the northeast and northwest. These choices are nicely balanced between salty, sweet and buttery flavors. The salmon with blistered tomatoes is nirvana to me. (I always substitute grits for fingerling potatoes). Another aspect of our experience was having Terrell wait on us, this is the second time we have been blessed with his service. Honestly HE rocks! He has a quick wit and deep knowledge of the menu and beverages.

    So we ate hear (Again) before a Musical at the Peace Center. The staff is aways accommodating for the start time of the musical across the street. The fish was excellent tonight (one of us had the Salmon and the other the Hawaiian Sea Bass) and we both enjoyed a Caesar salad to start the meal. The Bread was very hot and fresh out of the over. They really go out of their way to make you fell welcomed. We typically order the Theatre menu with three courses. We then hold the desert until after the Musical and come back to Nantucket to eat our desert and enjoy another drink. The wine list if very nice however, very expensive.

    We were only going to be in Greenville SC one night, and Rick Erwin's Nantucket Seafood was highly recommended to us by a friend. It met all of our expectations. All of our dishes were prepared perfectly, service was great, as was the ambiance. Mr. Erwin stopped by our table and we tried to convince him to open a restaurant in our hometown, Nashville. If you love good seafood, this is your place!

    Nantucket's was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. The food was plentiful and tasty. The $30 dinner specials gave us a nice sampling of the menu. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The only slight negative is that we were seated at a tiny table for two against a wall which left little room for tableware, drinks, etc. The server had to remove items to make room for the next course.

    We had the best meal we've had in a long time at Rick Erwin's Nantucket Seafood! We had Surf and Turf with Lobster and steak. Both of these items were melt in your mouth tender. We were there during a 3 for $30 feature and there was no difference in those specials and the more expensive entrees--both were high quality and prepared perfectly. Our wonder waiter, Derrick, took great care of us and gave us information for local activities. We will go back every time we visit Greenville.

    I hosted 10 colleagues for dinner and the evening was a success. Everyone enjoyed their meals, the wine choices were excellent and Caddy was perfection. Kudos to Nantucket for hiring my favorite server from Husk in Charleston. She knows the menu, the wine list and makes the dining experience flawless.

    Dined on 8/31/2014
    We have been to Nantucket Seafood numerous times enjoying our dining experience every time in the past. The dining experience for me with gumbo soup and entree of surf and turf were great The crab cake was just right. My wife had the lobster stuffed with crab. The crab stuffing was too salty and the lobster had been overcooked to the point of being tough. Our dessert - the key lime pie tasted as if a squirt of artificial lime juice had been added to the sweetened condensed milk and served. The Happy Anniversary cookie they brought us tasted of freezer burn. Sad to see a place we have enjoyed in the past drop the ball.

    We went for Sunday brunch. The restaurant was nearly empty. Some or our party enjoyed their meals -- mostly lunch items. I had breakfast and was not impressed. Service was very spotty. Drink items were incorrect and we had to request items that were missing from two separate plates. We have had dinner here before and enjoyed it very much. I was not impressed with the brunch menu or food.

    The four of us skipped over the $30 Foodie Fest menu and went straight to the slightly higher priced offerings because they featured the "Surf & Turf." The lobster tail was a little bland, but other than that -- high fives all around. Wine list had something for everyone. Our waitress, Hannah, was prompt, courteous, and informative. Dessert was tasty and a fine finish. Atmosphere perfect for an elegant early dinner. We shall return!!

    Glider108
    Dined on 8/20/2014
    The evening started with a delicious cup of she-crab soup for me and a small Caesar salad for my wife. My wife ordered a bowl of gumbo that was tasty. My meal of 4 small scallops and asparagus however was cold. If I wasn't so darn hungry, I would have sent it back. On top of that, the Hollandaise sauce that I asked to have on the side was cold as well. When I tried to pour some out, it plopped onto my plate in a coagulated blob. I had to use my fork to try and carve off a little bit. This is the third complaint or bad meal in a row that I have had at one of Rick Erwin's restaurants (although I have had lots of good ones). I will most likely be shying away from his places going forward and the reason I gave it a "Fair" rating.

    Unfortunately, I am providing my first bad review thru Open Table. My food was served cold. Not cool, but cold. After waiting for the server, he returned it and delivered my hot meal. This was after my wife finished her meal. There was no adjustment or real apology. After I said something else upon leaving, the server he apologized. I doubt I will return. A restaurant such as Rick Erwin's should provide more.
