    I have been to Rick Erwin's a few times, entertaining customers, but this bustee first time I have been able to take my wife with me. We had a wonderful pice of grilled swordfish with a wild rice orzo mix. Before dinner, we had the she crab soup and wedge salad. All was outstanding. The wine list was quite good, too. Rusty was our waiter and he was friendly, but not overbearing, and knowledgeable and helpful in choosing and substituting sides. A wonderful place to dine, whether with a group or for a romantic dinner with your wife. By the way, the Restairantnis connected to the Courtyard by Marriott. If you are staying in town, I recommend staying at the Courtyard and having dinner at Rick Erwin's.

    I was entertaining some friends visiting from out of town. My husband and I have enjoyed the bar with just beverages and appetizers on several occasions but had never eaten in the full restaurant. Everything was terrific! Great service and excellent food. My friends loved it as well so the evening was 100% of a success. Thank you.

    Nantuckett's has a gem for dinner before a show at the Peace Center. We enjoyed the "Theater Menu" before the Martina McBride show. It was perfect, $30, delicious selections, perfectly prepared and included dessert. The white chocolate coconut cream pie is everything I want in a dessert. Service was great, friendly and fast. Very nice being just a stroll across the street to the Peace Center. Valet parking was a perk also. Great place to celebrate a special day. It was not a special occasion for us, such as an anniversary or birthday, but it was a perfect evening.

    My wife and I took in dinner at Nantuckets and had a wonderful meal. The quality of the seafood is amazing and beats many high end coastline seafood restaurants I have been to. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable and the wine selection is perfect. A drink at the bar after dinner is fun and a lively crowd of seemingly successful 30 to 50 year olds allows for a fun, comfortable and relaxing time.

    My husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary! As soon as we walked through the doors, we were greeted with 'Happy Anniversary.' The environment was lovely and our server was great! He brought us champagne and served us with the utmost kindness. Dessert was incredible! I really liked that they put a cookie with "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate frosting in the creme brulee. Everything about our dining experience was fantastic! Thank you, again!

    First visit to Nanucket Seafood but not our last. Due to the priciness, this restaurant is a "special occasion" dining spot for us. Our meals were delicious! The service was great! Our server was pleasant, helpful and patient with our "first timers" questions. For dessert, our server recommended the key lime pie and we should have listened. The bread pudding was bland and tasteless. Not at all what we expected. Rick Erwin stopped by to see if we were enjoying ourselves. A very special touch!

    If you're looking for the place downtown for that special occasion, this is it. We sat on the terrace and it couldn't have been more pleasant. The food was fantastic and the service was even better. I had the surf and turf and my wife had the grouper. Really first class.

    Nantucket always has great food and very good service. I write this review b/c we had to wait 15 min past our reservation time even when they were aware we were celebrating our aniversery. Not holding a table for a reservation is a big deal to me. They were very crowded as it was a big weekend in Greenville with Freedom Weekend Aloft and was also Friday at 7p. The service was very good as always but maybe a tick lower than usual due to the crowd. Overall all though this is still a top spot in Greenville. Maybe "the" top for gourmet fish plates. I had the grouper and it was prepared well as I expected. We also tried the mussels app for the first time and it was prepared well with very good flavor and reasonably priced considering.

    Peace Center and dinner at Nantucket is perfect! With parking such a problem downtown especially when there are several events going on at the same time, Nantucket solves the problem with valet parking, great dinner spot, then just walk across the street to the "jewel of downtown," the Peace Center! Wiith old age creaking up and limited mobility, there's nothing better for a great night on the town!

    I love Rick Erwin's other restaurant down the street (best steaks and Calimari ever) so I was very excited to hear about Rick Erwin's Nantucket Seafood Restaurant. Friends of mine joined me for Sunday Brunch before seeing a play across the street at the Peace Center. The food was fabulous and my friends could hardly put their mouths around the thick juicy hamburgers. The service was great and the waiter knew that we were going to the theater and made sure we had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and not feel rushed getting out the door. The atmosphere is very cozy and inviting and it would be a great spot for a romantic evening as well. I give this restaurant 5 stars in every category. I only wish he'd open up a restaurant in Asheville!!!

    Have been to Nantucket many times, several times over the last couple of months. The last two times is has been average. Rushed food and not particularly good service. This last visit for our son's college graduation hit a new low... waiting over 30 min past reservation time, and the food quality was lacking/ two of the four dinners were really not cooked well. It was just disappointing. In the past, we have recommended Nantucket- I'm really not sure that I would, currently. I hope things improve.

    Dined on 5/17/2014
    A disappointing dining experience. Unlike the sister restaurant, Rick Erwin's Westside Grill, Nantucket's seems to be disorganized and haphazard, cramped to the point of making one claustrophobic, and the food was mediocre (at best) in the preparation. All of the elements are in place for a stellar experience (recipes, ambiance) but staffing issues seem to doom any chance for a memorable night. Waiters picking up dropped items from the floor and then serving without washing, entree meats with cool centers, and inattention to order details were the norm for us, all combining to create an overall disappointment that will keep me from repeating a meal there. The mechanics of dining need a lot of work there. And it is truly a shame.

    We made reservations for a special event. My seafood was great, my friend's steak dry. The service was just ok. Had to ask for salt/pepper and bread which waitress said she would bring twice. Table located in busy area next to kitchen and furniture constantly being changed in and out. My friend's chair kept getting hit. Wine list great. Wine best part of evening. When seated, I made a comment to host about large table for 2 (meant for 4) and no comment. When exiting, talked to host and said next time request not to be seated on right side.
