Gaslight is an open concept bar, restaurant, and live music venue serving some of the best food Nantucket has to offer. The cuisine, from Chef Liam Mackey (The Nautilus), has a Japanese Izakaya vibe where you'll find a variety of haute street food style pan-Asian cuisine include noodles, rice dishes, bao buns, raw fish, skewers, dumplings, and more. The bar program, curated by Clinton Terry (The Nautilus) features a variety of fresh ingredient forward cocktails with culinary inspired themes, and rotating craft beers on tap. The wine list leans towards fun, funky, natural w/ a twist of the classic plus the island's only Champagne Vending machine (thank you Moët). The atmosphere is lively, the staff is friendly, the location in the heart of downtown Nantucket can't be beat, and the live music starts every night in the summer around 1030pm, featuring both local and off-island acts with high name recognition. Gaslight is the place to be!

Leading Nantucket’s thriving restaurant scene, The Nautilus (est. 2014) is an island staple built on the idea of a shared social experience. Founders Liam Mackey (food), Clinton Terry (drink) & Stephen Bowler’s (wine & business) island-mentality of being “serious about what we do, but not taking ourselves too seriously” perfectly sums up The Nautilus experience. The highly regarded culinary program is a sort of ‘New England coastal cuisine meets Asian & global haute street food’ vibe featuring small plates served tapas style, combined w/ larger group feasts (think Peking inspired duck). The culinary inspired cocktails draw on both seasonal & regional inspirations while the wine & sake list is recognized as a “Best Of” by Wine Spectator. Fueled by curated, energetic music, the stimulating yet neighborly atmosphere makes the new & unfamiliar feel comfortable & intimate, a philosophy that seamlessly ties the food, cocktails, wine & ambiance together to cr

    If you're looking for a young, hip place with good food, the Gaslight is for you. I liked my menu choices and wine, the service was excellent. But - the space is kind of chaotic, a lot of moving parts, and the prices are quite high for this type of place. But hey, it's Nantucket, not a surprise. I'd go back for lunch when it might be a little quieter.

    All food was amazing. It is a bit small and crowded, but that’s because it’s so good! Oyster tacos, lamp chomps, poke bowl and blue crab rice all delicious. Need to make a reservation in advanced. I stayed up until midnight to make it as soon as the spots were released.

    Excellent dining experience here at Island Kitchen. The food was fantastic as we had the Halibut and the special which was Surf/Turf w/lobster. Our server was outstanding. The portions were large and perfectly done. This place is a gem. The bonus is the Island Kitchen ice cream shop with their large array of unique flavors was the perfect ending to a wonderful meal

    Misogi Noodle Bar is SO much more than noodles ! The name is a little misleading. The Vegetable Dumplings are amazing combination of Asian flavors, their healthy salads like The Hulk are packed with intriguing ingredients, the King Salmon Ramen is outstanding. The burgers are not your ordinary burgers. I want to keep going back so that I can try everything on the menu. It's all delicious ! Casual and comfortable atmosphere, friendly and competent service. Just go, you won't regret it.

    I love that restaurant. Food is always excellent. We normally sit at the counter but last night we had to sit at a table and the noise level was very high and the music was too loud. But we asked to turn down the music and they did, which helped…. Food was excellent.
