Delightful brunch during Christmas Stroll. Kind of stuffy patrons, but great atmosphere.

Fabulous find for food...the best was the bar hopping with amazing people laughing and dancing..then a quiet dinner with lights on the ocean. Big wine pour! Beautiful fireplace! Easy walk from center of town!!!!

We went their on the Nantucket Christmas stroll weekend which is basically the last weekend of the season . That being said the restruant was not too crowded at the the time we sat down so I do not understand why the service was so lacking. The menu was sparse but I attribute that to the end of season. The location is great and we had a great view of the harbor from the heated terrace. As we come here yearly and this was our worst experience we would likely give it another try next season hopefully we experience better service.

Lovely lunch. Dining outside in December cannot be beat. The food was well prepared and the entire experience was very pleasant.

We went during the Christmas stroll and the food was very good but the service was horrible. They weren't even that busy and everything took forever.

We have been to Brant Point in the past and loved it but, this time, everything was off. Our server was wonderful and tried to make everything better for us..The soup, while delicious, came out lukewarm and even when it was sent back, not much better..It was a very limited menu since it was the Christmas stroll weekend, so we assumed all of the choices would be outstanding but we left underwhelmed..We were celebrating a birthday and they did bring out a bottle of proscecco as a comp for our disappointment..There were 8 of us so it was just a little taste and nothing else was done to accommodate us..With all of this said, I think we will still go back in season and give it another try..

Great resort, first class service, wonderful ambiance, nice menu which offers something for everyone.

Major kudos to both Bob the manager and to Aphneal our server who went above and beyond to make my wife’s birthday and anniversary such a special evening from champagne to dessert. These gentlemen could not do enough without being intrusive throughout the entire evening.

Would highly recommend this restaurant and if your lucky, you’ll have the opportunity to make both Bob and Aphneal make your spevial occasion oh so memorable.

Had a very enjoyable and delicious meal. Drink was a little weak, but bartender adjusted.

My husband and I dined here for our anniversary and it was wonderful. The staff was courteous, friendly, and accommodating. The food was delicious! My filet practically melted in my mouth. I also loved the deck seating with the heat lights above. Even with the cool breeze coming off the water, we were nice and warm with a gorgeous view of the harbor. We would definitely go back again!

Good restaurant. Unfortunately, it was a rainy night so we did not get a view of the pretty outside. A lot of noise since there was a party behind closed drapes next store and there were toddlers running around the chairs. No wine that fit our liking but the cocktails were nice. Went with the prefixed dinner and enjoyed the soup and loved the banana bread pudding.

We live on Nantucket and actually haven't been to brunch at the Brant Point Grill for quite some time. I must say, it was absolutely fabulous. Such great selections and the service was very good. The only negative was that our table was missing items from two place settings which were provided upon request. Can't beat the view of Nantucket Harbor

The food was awesome and delicious!!! Very diissapointed with the service. It was a slow Sunday night, few tables occupied and enough waiters. Service was slow and even slower at end when empty plates sat at table for 15 minutes and then another 7-10 minutes to get the check.

We highly recommend the Brant Point Grill. I went to dinner with my daughter and grandson. The food was exceptional, the Duck Confit was to die for. I would rate the "Old Fashioned" at a 9.5.
We Will be back!

Very nice restaurant with great view of the harbor. Excellent food and drinks. We enjoyed the $39 restaurant week special - generous portions and tasty food. Worth the trip!

I had the Dorade and the sauce was perfectly suited, light and tasty for this light white fish. My husband had a delicious strip steak cooked to perfection.
