We had an early lunch. After having Manhattan chowder, we both enjoyed the soft shell crabs. Both were delicious. As frequent diners of Nautilus, we have never been disappointed .
They are consistently offering fresh high quality
Food cooked beautifully.

Went for a late lunch/early dinner on a rainy Sunday with girlfriends. We had a fabulous time! The service was great! Attentive without being annoying. They never rushed us or made us feel uncomfortable. The food is always excellent! They are very amenable to special dietary restrictions. We had a choice of several menu deals - early bird, prix fixe, lunch or dinner. And we all ordered from a different one. The restaurant was not very busy so we could easily chat away with ease. Love The Nautilus Cafe!!!

My husband and I enjoyed the baked clams and he enjoyed the salmon. I found the jumbo shrimp oreganata a bit tough and not as flavorful as other places I've been. The tables are a bit close in the middle of the room, so depending on your neighbors it can be hard not to overhear their conversation. The prices are a bit high at peak time but you can always go earlier to get the early bird prices or go when the have specials during the week. The service is fantastic and the atmosphere is very pleasant. Overall we enjoy coming here and will go again. I will try another entree and we will aim for an earlier dinner hour to get seating on the perimeter- all good!

We were seated promptly for our reservation. The waiter approached us to take our drink order and advise us of the specials for the evening. Were served the drinks, but they forgot to place the bread at the table. We had to remind the waiter when we got the appetizers which were excellent. The bread however was a different matter.......not fresh at all. We had to wait an extremely long time before the main course was served and one order served wasn't cooked to the desire temperature - requested medium and served rare. Although the waiter acknowledge and apologized for the delay, there was no offer to make a compensation during desert or even for the coffee. Again the food was excellent and too the waiter. Slight errors won't keep us from dining here as the food makes up for it.........

We were seated at the window with a nice view of the boats. The bread basket was outstanding-savory crackers and moist banana bread. I had the beer battered shrimp and my mom had the macadamia encrusted bronzini. Mashed potatoes and broccoli were served family style. The tartar sauce is exceptional. The shrimp were HUGE and incredible. The bronzini was out of this world. Chuck is a fabulous waiter and even brought my mom a complimentary bowl of ice cream for her birthday. The coffee was also fantastic. All in all an amazing meal!

We had eaten here several times in the past when the restaurant was extremely busy and loud which made it a bit stressful. This time however, a storm was brewing so the dining room was quiet, relaxing and the food was absolutely delicious.

Another great meal. I know my reviews of this restaurant are getting boring, but the plain truth is every time I go there the service is great and the food is fantastic. I have never had a bad meal here and neither has any of the many friends and family I have brought here. My wife had the crab stuffed shrimp special and raved about it. The prime rib is still the best around and, as usual, was cooked exactly as ordered. It will not be too long before we return to this restaurant

Always saw this place was full of customers especially in the summer so we took a chance for my wife's birthday. Although small, the interior decor was quite pleasant in wood style. Being off season it appeared most customer now were "regulars" as each table greeted one another on this evening. The food was excellently prepared and presented, my only problem was with the side combo of french fries and fried onion. To little fries and they were buried under the onions. So you had to eat through the onions to find the fries. No dessert, only expresso for coffee which was very smooth. Will have to make a return to see how the service fares when it is a packed house in the summer. Very thing was excellent this time......

Food was good. Waitstaff were delightful and helpful. Had we not been there before , we would have left as soon as we encountered the hostess. She was short and rather nasty with us. Fortunately, we had no contact with her once we were finally seated. We each had something different and all enjoyed.
