  • "Rick Erwin's Nantucket Seafood was recommended for a special night out, my birthday. It was my first visit to Nantucket--I loved the ambiance, the service was terrific and the food was very good. I don't think the menu items we selected were overly special, but the presentation of the dinner items selected was in keeping with the rest of restaurant, which was excellent."

  • "Our first visit to Rich Erwin's Nantucket Seafood was well worth it! We drove from Anderson for a special evening out and we were not disappointed. First the spacious apportionment and detail to decorating where you could hear yourself think and converse with others was very appreciated. The service we received was professional and courteous with excellent knowledge of the menu. Our meal presentation was matched by the excellent quality and taste of our salad and entree'. The desserts were the grand finale' ending our delightful experience. We recommend this restaurant for a top notch dining experience. We will be making more drives from Anderson! Thank you to the RENS staff for a great evening!"

  • "I made reservations at Nantucket for my grandmother's 77th birthday. From start to finish the service was exceptional. We were immediately greeted and seated promptly in a great booth. Our waiter was fabulous, even going so far as customizing an entree for me that was not on the menu. My grandfather who is 85 has trouble walking and everyone was so patient with us and also very willing to help making sure he was comfortable. For the price this is not an everyday type of place, more for special occasions although they do have a 3 course theater menu that's great. The food was outstanding! I see definitely will be going back!"

  • "My wife and I enjoyed the theater special. This was our first visit. We both had the surf and turf preceded by a great appetizer. The portion sizes were perfect. We were satisfied but not overly stuffed. Service was great. This was a special occasion for us. Price was a concern initially but quickly faded given such a great dining experience. We will return."

  • "The scallops "a la Oscar" were outstanding. My wife felt that the amount of fries that accompanied her seafood platter was excessive. They were very dark in color, looking old or overcooked. The seafood itself was excellent, she said. It was our 27th anniversary, and when my wife's dessert came it was accompanied by a cookie on which had been written in chocolate, "Happy Anniversary," which delighted her very much. The only thing that bothered me personally was that one waiter introduced himself as "ours," yet four others attended us; one was obviously new, not knowing whether to pour coffe at the table or take my cup away. It took close to five minutes to get after-dinner coffee. Interestingly, the decaf was much better than the regular."

  • "My husband's dinner was really good (surf and turf) but mine was not. I had the trout and it was very oily. Waitress did not notice I couldn't eat it until the end of the meal and it was too late to request something else. We asked to have it boxed up for my husband's lunch next day, but she forgot and we did not get the box. She did give me a free coffee drink as an apology. She was very apologetic and very nice. Then, there were mistakes on the bill. We were charged for the coffee and charged for a salad that came with the meal."

  • "Food is dated and not skillfully prepared...scallops were amoniated...Carnagie Deli(which is not in business anymore)cheese cake tasted like a walkin cooler...."

  • "An abundance of great choices for seafood dishes, including calamari, lobster, scallops, shrimp, ahi tuna, sea bass, etc., all with the option of an Oscar (crab and hollandaise sauce) topping. All dishes were delicious with great presentation. Also some good choices for draft beer on tap. Great outdoor seating, plus more elegant atmosphere inside."

  • "Treated my parents for their first visit. They felt like Royalty! The staff was professional, yet not stuffy. The food was amazing. My parents both ordered the Company Lump Crab Cakes (neither wanted to share!) I'm going back for the fresh Hawaiian Sea Bass."

  • "I was looking for a place that my wife and I neither had been to for our 3 year anniversary, and I stumbled across Rick Erwin’s Nantucket Seafood on open table and thought that it would be perfect. Much to my surprise, the place was better than I expected. I'm not much a seafood connoisseur, but my wife is and she said that it was the best lobster she every had. My Filet Mignon was one of, if not, the best I've had in Greenville. As stated, our food was perfect, the waitress was very knowledgeable and attentive, and the atmosphere was perfect. Wy wife and I have pretty much decided to keep going back for our anniversaries. One of the best dinners we ever had."

  • "Great food. Oyster appetizer was amazing- large and fresh. Scallop entree was delicious. Shrimp and grits were good, but only received 4 shrimp (kinda disappointing). Service was good but drinks were weak. After 'complaining' we were set right!"

  • "Rick Erwin's Nantucket Seafood Restaurant was once again an excellent dining experience. I had the halibut special which was exceptional. The service was outstanding, attentive but not over bearing. On a previous occasion, I ordered the filet which was excellent. So regardless of your tastes this is restaurant is sure to please."

  • "Cocktails were excellent but service was rushed with appetizer delivered at the same time. Both fish entrees were excellent but three different vegetable dishes all were abysmal - over breaded, overcooked and inedible."

  • "We LOVE Rick Erwin's steakhouse for special occasions, but it was closed on Sunday [our anniversary], so we thought we would try "Nantucket". Dinner was perfect...excellent food...attentive service...romantic atmosphere! I highly recommend this restaurant! It was pricey, but SO WORTH IT!"

  • "I seldom eat in the dining room (typically at the bar), but I had 4 friends in town and wanted to give them the downtown Greenville treatment. In making my reservation, Pam asked what type of seating I preferred and was assured that I was taken care of. Was greeted on Saturday evening by the beautiful Arlette and immediately seated. Our wait person for the evening was Frankie. Can I just say, he was the BEST! New Manager, Jeremy, came by to greet us and we got a glimpse of Rick as we were leaving. The food was superb - had the crab stuffed lobster. My friends had a wonderful time and are looking forward to their return. Thanks Nantucket for always making me feel special!"

  • "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."

  • "After years of living (and dining) in Charleston, my husband and I were happy to find a seafood restaurant of this quality in Greenville. Food was flawless, service was impeccable. Great location as well."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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."
