Terrific meal. Thanks again.
always delicious. great staff great food
Food was delicious and wait staff very friendly and pleasant! Would definitely go back!
Great waitress. Lots of good choices for food, fast timely service.
Fantastic. Thank you
Cozy space indoors or lovely outdoor porch with lots of plantings.
Island Kitchen always does a nice job, and this dinner was no exception. The heirloom tomato salads were delicious, but skimped a bit on the arugula. Shrimp and chicken additions were very tasty. Wine was overpriced for the glass and vintner, but that's our fault for not looking more closely. We will be back though... everything is tough with this stupid virus around... thanks!
Ugh. Not so good. Covid mulligan but not likely to return soon.
We have always loved Island Kitchen. Breakfast, lunch and dinner have always been outstanding. They have tried very hard to maintain their high standards during this time of COVID-19. As a result, they have a shorter than average dinner menu with a choice of main courses that was not as appealing as usual. As a result we were disappointed in our dinners. I believe this was an anomaly but the ratings I gave honestly reflect the menu and food we experienced this one time only. The efforts we are all making to support restaurants and for restaurants to stay in business demand difficult choices. We just wish the food choices were more reflective of their usual excellent food. I should also note I had brunch and lunch there recently and both were excellent.
Outside dining is preferable as the acoustics inside are horrible...especially when you are trying to dine with a table of “ladies night out” would recommend for a casual well prepared and service dinner!
Ate on their patio during a cold night (50s) and there were no heaters. Had salad, lobster roll and pork belly on a bun- all very tasty. Service was also good. Eating in a very simple patio while shivering was not great ambience considering the cost. I guess expectation was elevated after we had eaten at a different restaurant that provided a heater by our table. I wore a long sleeve, sweater, fall jacket. I should have brought a winter jacket or do takeout. I’m sure our experience would have been better on a warm night especially prior to covid.
Very fresh tasting food, hanger steak was cooked perfect and great dessert
Based on the food, the outside covered seating and the location we ended up here twice this week! We did dinner first and it was wonderful...breakfast/lunch was no slouch!
They handled COVID well but we look forward to a meal inside on our next visit.
We had a few of the appetizers - recommend the shumai and the calamari, not as big a fan of the cauliflower. We enjoy our entrees - the burger was great, the fluke was also very good.
We loved being able to eat out which we had not done much of in the time of Covid restrictions. Food was very good and excellent wine. Our server was so nice and accommodating. It was a little chilly on the porch which is Mother Nature’s doing but some portable heaters would have been great. Overall one of our favorite places to dine on the island.
Love Island kitchen, scallops were delicious, sauce on steak was delicious but steak a little tough, ate on the porch a little chilly but is what is due to virus. Also loved the shrimp shumai and calamari.....good pour nice night for all 4 of us.
The service was very good and the atmosphere on the covered deck was lovely. We were a bit disappointed with the food however. I had the beet salad and the chicken dish and my husband had the hanger steak. The salad was good but the entrees were not very tasty. My chicken was dry and my husband’s steak was tough. We have had breakfast here several times and it was outstanding! Good reviews for dinner made us anxious to try Island Kitchen for dinner. Maybe the menu was limited due to Covid? Thought the choices online sounded much better so we may try again.
Went to Island Kitchen based on reviews here on Open Table. It was very good. Food was good and the service was excellent. We sat outside which was nice, but a bit dark. Suggest that they maybe add some lighting outside for the future. It was a bit pricey, but then again, all restaurants in Nantucket are pricey. I'd recommend it.
Freezing in the dark at a table in the parking lot....should have just left
The food is excellent and always consistent. Our favorite restaurant for sure!
Island Kitchen always delivers an excellent meal. Have never been disappointed in the menu or the service.
Very good in every way!
Excellent quality food as usual. Very dark outside after sunset, we used phone torch to help us see food. Service very good.
The food was impressive- high quality and unique presentations/ flavor combinations. I would recommend even locals to take another look at this menu. We’ll be back!
Delicious, safe, friendly, and did I mention delicious?
They’ve done a great job with all the planters- great waitress- great food
Dined indoors for first time b/c of rain and cold. 6 of us. Had table off to side good distance from other diners. Food excellent! Everyone pleased. Waitress lovely, attentive. Ambience casual, totally pleasant. Recommend this restaurant for a terrific meal, many choices, not overly priced.
We were super disappointed with Island Kitchen. My “ medium rare “ sirloin was very well done. I should’ve sent it back. My daughter’s “medium “ burger was nearly raw. She actually had a stomach ache that night! Our fried calamari was way overdone too. The waitress wasn’t rude, but could care less about making our experience nice. So overall, incredible waste of money and just a bummer since we only had two dinners on Nantucket.
Excellent value for tasty food. Sitting outside was ok.
Love the food and atmosphere . Always a good value.
Great food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommend
The food was horrible ! Service ok. Very dirty place with very bad ambience .. very very dirty
Solid . But could be a little better on service
We have been here before and have always enjoyed our meals. Our most recent dinner was slightly disappointing. Quinoa salad had only a tablespoon of quinoa and scallop entre was overcooked. Service was ok but not helpful with recommendations. I would try it again, might have been an off night for them.
Since they opened it has been one of my favorite restaurants!!
Had dinner on the outdoor patio as a family of 5. Great setup and excellent service. Their kids menu satisfied all our little ones, adults were happy with great cocktails and wine list, and our meals were delicious. Very convenient location and parking. Highly recommended.
The food was. Dry good and the service was good
Island Kitchen has been in our restaurant "power rotation" each year we visit Nantucket. We have had breakfasts and dinners there and never been disappointed. Only downside- Tabasco is BYO.
This is usually a favorite of ours, but their outside experience in the parking lot is not as successful as we had hoped. The food and service were OK. And they may well have improved sense then.
