The food was fantastic. We had checked their menu online and already knew what we were going to order - how wonderful that it was the first day of their off season pricing and both of our items were listed (not that it would have swayed our decision). The bouillabaisse was delicious and the duck was on point. Our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive with a great sense of humor. One of our best meals during our visit to OC. We will be back. :)

Food is spectacular! Prussian oysters, cod, quahog chowder, and even down to the pumpkin cheesecake! Loved it all!

Table was waiting for us. The only thing that would have made the evening complete was to be acknowledged for our anniversary that we had noted with the reservation. But, the food and the service was fantastic.

Consistently on of the best restaurants on the "Culinary Coast". The Prussian Oysters are the best dish ever. Excellent service and staff.

Chris is probably one of the finest wait staff we have experienced(even in high end restaurants) he was attentive and anticipatory and we wanted for nothing. We started with the tuna tataki w/ sesame.it was one of the best seared tuna appetizers i have ever had and the portion was generous. The filet w/bleu cheese crust was great but i am glad i had the demiglaze held to the side. It is not needed on a steak that is “crusty”. Creme brûlée and pumpkin cheesecake were top notch. Happy to have found Nantucket’s and will dine again, maybe trying lighter fare next time!

We celebrated two birthdays and our server, Chris was absolutely outstanding❣️
Such a nice young man who will go far with his warm personality.
We did have a slight issue with one of our meals, however the problem was promptly resolved. We would highly recommend this fabulous establishment if you are looking for a fine dining
experience! The ambiance, food, and service was exquisite!! Thank you for an enjoyable evening❣️

It was great to be in a smooth running restaurant during this time of restaurant staffing shortages. Food and service were excellent. I had the field of greens salad and the duck and my son has the chowder and lobster shepherds pie. All recommended. Definitely will be back next time I’m in the area.

Nantucket never disappoints us. We dine there whenever we are at the beach. The food is always excellent and Susie, our server, is knowledgeable, pleasant and efficient. We have been fortunate to normally have her as our server.

Outstanding food! Waiter was informative and made helpful recommendations and was a true professional. I highly recommend as the food was great one not any more expensive than most of the lousy restaurants in OCMD. I will go back as this will become one of my primary OC restaurants!

Given other positive reviews I was surprised about this restaurant. Decor is odd and grossly outdated. We had a reservation and the hostess was very rude about finding my name. Menu was very old fashioned.

Baked Brie appetizer was odd at best- Brie- totally liquefied by overheating and served with 3 cherry tomatoes was odd and flavorless. Quahog chowder was excellent, entrees of salmon salad, boulliabase, and mussels were fine, if under seasoned.

Servers were efficient and polite - but we will not be returning.

A favorite place! Chowdah consistently delicious. Shrimp and sausage disappointing. Sausage not peeled. Sauce thin but tasty.
I’ll try something else next time.

Despite making a reservation a month in advance, we were very disappointed to be seated in the bar. I asked if we could be seated in the dining room instead since it was our anniversary and we were clearly dressed for a nice dinner experience, not a bar with loud football fans watching college games.The hostess was rude and dismissive telling us there were no tables available in the dining room even with a reservation.
Our waiter, Ralph, made the night much more pleasant and enjoyable, thank goodness! The food was delicious and Ralph was incredibly attentive.
They really should give patrons warning or the option to sit in the bar or dining room when they make a reservation. It was not the quiet anniversary dinner we planned. If I wanted to have dinner in a bar, I wouldn’t have made a reservation.

The seared scallops atop the cucumber salad were superb as an appetizer.Then I had the Black Angus New York Strip which was phenomenal. No sauce needed.

The restaurant ambiance was very nice, however, the food was lacking on many accounts: the pork chop was very tough; my wife's entrée lacked flavor and my sisters was good but not at the quality we expected. Mussels were plentiful but we have had better. Finally the crab soup was more like a vegetable soup and and did not have a rich flavor. Service was good and attentive.

Delighted to return to the shore. “ Nantuckets” had been recommended.
So attractive, service was top notch.
Very professional & efficient..
And our meals were outstanding.
The signature “ quay hog & scallop chowda” truly delicious.
Everything was.

Got early seating (5:00) so we could eat before attending a concert at Freeman stage. Got seated immediately, servers were courteous and prompt. Also got the happy hour pricing on drinks and apps.
Drinks, appetizers and main course all came out promptly, which is quite a feat right now.
Food was excellent - had to do the quahog chowda, and had soft crabs and shrimp and grits.
Would have stayed for dessert, but needed to leave for the concert.
Nantuckets is one of our favs, and didn’t disappoint!
