We had a reservation at eight pm. When we arrived, the table they were trying to clear for us to be seated at was refusing to leave. They felt bad and comped our drinks, and found is a table inside. Nicest group of people, I felt awful that those people at the table were being so difficult for them.

Overall a very good choice for upscale dining in the area. The only "off" thing we experienced is that we felt rushed. It wasn't like the table was needed for the next seating - we were the final customers at our table and the restaurant was not ready to close . Our waitress was nice but "over efficient" and we were surprised by the speed of how quickly both our first and second courses arrived and also the check. Took away from the experience a bit.

This was my first indoor dining experience since Covid and I could not have felt safer! We love Nantuckets for its service, food, and atmosphere. Susie is exceptional and the staff went out of their way to make us feel safe and welcomed. Nothing but the best recommendation!

Not as good as I remembered a few years ago. Maybe my expectations were too high - but, I was underwhelmed. My wife loved the oysters on the half - her favorite part of the meal. Everything else was very good - just not great. The server was excellent - but, my wife's wine glass had soap residue in it - that you could both see and smell. Returned and replaced.

Dinner was wonderful. Service was great. We were celebrating multiple occasions birthday, anniversary etc. Highly recommend the Oysters Rockefeller and the Encrusted Filet. If not that hungry try the chowder, field of greens or the kabobs. Treat yourself and enjoy.

I enjoyed the chowder but think it is a little pricey for what you get. I also ordered the shrimp and grits. It was good but too spicy for me which is my problem not the problem of the restaurant. My friend got the duck salad that looked delicious and another friend got the soft crab BLT which also looked good. they were happy with their food. We enjoyed the backed brie and our desserts. All in all a happy experience but again I think the chowder is overpriced.

My 2 friends were happy. The rack of lamb was the worst entree I ever experienced. No meat. All bone and fat. So bad that I wish I had told the waitress. It cost $34. It wasn’t worth 34 cents.

Even with social distancing was a little louder than I hoped for. Food was good, service outstanding and prices were incredible. We had to settle for an early reservation, 5:30 so our wine and apps were billed at Happy Hour Prices!

We were looking for a place that offered a bit more of a dining experience than typically offered at beach restaurants or seafood shacks. Nantucket’s exceeded our expectations with their food, drink and ambiance.

First, tough decision on choosing from their enticing list of a House Cocktail - landed on the Mango Resistance (which might have been quite appropriately named in this political climate). It was a tasty, satisfying unique cocktail; so many house/specialty cocktails miss the mark and this one nailed it.

Chose the scallop appetizer; today’s recipe was pecan crusted. 3 large scallops were presented on a bed of sautéed spinach. Great presentation and the butter/oil sauce was bread worthy.

We split a Cranberry and Pecan Field salad. Nice touch with the house roasted brown sugar pecans - very generous portions of the pecans, cranberries and goat cheese. Nice house made dressing.

I had the fish of the day, which was grilled halibut with a drizzled cream sauce, served with risotto and seasoned green beans. The fish was very slightly overcooked but the taste was tremendous. The side dishes were very good. My wife had the pan roasted breast of duckling. Cooked perfectly at medium rare, the duck was not fatty at all and was moist and tasty. And it was a very sizable portion, especially when combined with the baby red potatoes and asparagus spears served as sides.

Our server, Sherry, did a really nice job efficiently taking care of us and answering our questions. The drinks and courses were served in a steady, but relaxed pace.

Regarding COVID, all staff were wearing masks. Good social distancing in the restaurant achieved with table removal. Next trip back, I hope that COVID is gone so that we could hang in the bar area and check out those great appetizers on their menu plus a house cocktail or three. Nice job, Nantucket’s.
