The food at Brant Point Grill was excellent. My husband I had the surf and turf for two. It did not disappoint. The filet was cooked perfectly to our liking and it was very tender and full of flavor. The lobster was moist, tender and delicious!

Our server did an excellent job and ensured our meal was a great dining experience.

Ristorante di classe con servizio attento. Apparecchiatura discreta (il tavolo era nella terrazza). Cucina di livello elevato: ottimo il surf and turf (con astice ben grigliato e filetto perfetto). Buona carta dei vini con i ricarichi usuali (piuttosto elevati). Unico neo della serata: i rumori derivanti dall’allestimento di un contiguo padiglione esterno (all’ora di cena!). Prezzi sostenuti ma adeguati al livello del locale.

We went for lunch and was disappointed by how limited and uninspiring the food choice was. The food was cooked well enough. It’s a lovely view of the harbor.

The restaurant was setting up for a private event that will take place next weekend at the hotel. This included putting in an area with flooring and bringing in a backhoe. There was noise and disruption throughput our entire meal. They should have advised us that this was going to be taking place while diners were attempting to enjoy an outside meal and a pretty view of the harbor. We would not have reserved a table had we known in advance. The waitress apologized but said there was nothing she could do about it.

We thought we had planned a special brunch to celebrate our daughter’s engagement, but were dismayed to be overwhelmed by a couple structuring crew within inches of our table installing a giant stage for an event at the hotel later that day. The noise was so intense we could hardly hear each other, and the workers were clueless, as they hammered away at the structure. It was not only the noise. The usually incredible view was completely obstructed by the large crew of workers and their equipment and materials. Our celebration was a terrible experience. The restaurant staff was pretty good, but never mentioned the obvious massive distraction, let alone offer an apology.

Nantucket has many great restaurants but none better than the Brant Point Grill when it comes to great food, amazing views, and an elegant ambience. Our waitress, aside from been friendly, knowledgeable, and professional, was eager to take fantastic pictures of us out on the lawn. As the old saying goes, "You could cut the filet mignon with a fork."

Order steak and truffled mashed potatoes, Steak was too well done… Returned to the kitchen for a more medium one. Took my mashed potatoes and did not return them, $12 side order lost Bar was great, We were early for a reservation so we spent an hour and a half at the bar met great people, bartender was fabulous even charged my cell phone for me!! We recommend going to the bar at the Brant point Grill and dinner at Lola’s Right around the corner. Stop at the juice bar for an ice cream

We visit this restaurant every summer when we visit Nantucket. It is always a special night for us. The food is always fantastic and the ambiance is beautiful. However, this year our server was not attentive or frankly good at all. She specifically asked if we wanted our children’s meals to come out with ours. We told her no. When the kids meals came out with the appetizers and not our entrees, we had to ask her to bring them back. She was very confused, didn’t apologize and just said “there must have been a miscommunication”. There was no miscommunication. She just wasn’t paying attention. She never checked on how we were doing and just wasn’t a great server. Otherwise, it was fantastic.

Excellent food, spectular setting. The manager, hostess and other staff were attentive and helpful, with the exception of our waitress. She was condescending and had such an attitude, it really detracted from the otherwise lovely experience.

Yes, I'd recommend Brant Point Grill for an excellent (expensive) meal, but be prepared for many kids running around.

First visit, lovely spot. It was exceptionally hot and was a bit surprised there weren’t any fans just moving air around. Service was a bit slow, the faster you order and get drinks, the more Lyon drink. Bloody Mary w/1/4 lb of lobster was on my list and definitely worth the wait.

Beautiful setting and nice restaurant for a special dinner. Staff were friendly and welcoming. However, there was far too much mayhem in the lawn with the young kids running around the entire time for an 8 pm dinner of this price. I wished we would have chosen a different restaurant for our one evening in Nantucket.

Great food and service.
Only issue is the many children that parents let run around the outside seating area. Can detract from ambiance.

This dining experience is always a highlight of our stay in Nantucket every summer and it never disappoints. The view, the outdoor toys for the kids to play with, and the service, continue to impress us. The food also continues to be strong and it is what you would expect from a resto associated with an exquisite hotel. In particular, I should point out that Bob, the manager, went above and beyond to accommodate my reservation gaffe in the most calm and comforting manner. While I initially had booked a table of six, by the night of the dinner, it has ballooned to eight. And though all of the bigger tables were booked, Bob managed to carve out a way to sit the additional people, when I initially thought it was impossible. It is this type of service that makes us realize that this place is a gem and will continue to be one of our go-to-food destinations with our young kids.

Very disappointed that although the online menu listed many lunch options, the actual menu was quite limited. We asked if they still serve the lobster sliders/clam chowder or the fish tacos or the Caesar salad or the beef sliders and response was “no” to all. Can we have a frozen margarita? “No frozen drinks”. Can we have French fries instead of salad with the burger. “ no” Waiter didn’t seem to want to go out of his way. All 5 of us had eaten there before but not sure any of us would go back. The view is great though. Maybe the restaurant manager could walk around and inquire if everything is satisfactory?

Nourriture exceptionnelle dans un cadre merveilleux devant une pelouse donnant sur la mer et le port.
Incontestablement un restaurant très chic ... sur papier.
On ne peut pas lui attribuer une note excellente parce que pour un restaurant de ce standing plusieurs points sont inacceptables :
1° Une horde d'enfants bruyants jouent et courent sur la pelouse juste devant notre table.
2° Impossible de se parler malgré le fait que notre table était sur le bord du restaurant
J'adore les enfants et je vais souvent manger avec les miens et leurs enfants mais pas dans ce style de restaurant à prix élevé où l'on est en droit d'attendre le calme surtout quand la nourriture est si délicieuse ...
