You cannot go wrong here. Everything is delicious, fresh and cooked to perfection. We are never disappointed. The staff here is friendly and professional. They are known for breakfast, but dinner and lunch are even better.

We had a lovely meal at Island Kitchen! We started with the fried calamari appetizer. Yummm
My husband had pasta and meatballs -what a delicious sauce! I opted for the Nantucket bay scallops special. It was served over a sweet potato purée, with roasted Brussels sprouts & butternut squash. Beautiful and delicious!
We treated ourselves to decaf and shared the coconut cake dessert- house made there. Wow.
We will definitely go back to Island kitchen!

The food was wonderful, the drinks were generous, and the staff were both attentive and very pleasant. We arrived at 6:45 on a Friday night which was the busiest time at the restaurant and hence the food delivery was somewhat slow. Also, it was a tad noisy. However, I will go back and I highly recommend the Island Kitchen!

Love this restaurant and the duck confit Poutine but it needs to be served a bit hotter.

So appreciative that Patrick keeps IK open year round so the winter denizens of Nantucket have a place to go!

This is one of my favorite Nantucket Restaurants. The food is excellent for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Last Wednesday, it was in the mid 20s and windy, the restaurant was not warm enough.

My wife and I went there for her birthday celebration. There was a post on Facebook highlighting their specialty of the night, Lamb Shank. As it turned out, we made a 6 p.m. reservation for a Saturday night to be sure we were not disappointed by missing out on the special. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress, Yuylia, who was also very competent and knowledgeable. We both ordered the lamb which turned out to be amazing. Over the years I've ordered the same meal but this turned out to be by far the best! After, Yuylia suggested the delicious banana cream pie.....which turned out to be the only mistake of a perfect evening. We agreed to only order one serving of the pie and then share. Obviously we should have ordered our own!
That being said, this was our fourth or fifth visit to the Island Kitchen. The most recent meal was also a special of the night, a full Thanksgiving type turkey dinner. This was the closest thing to our home-made turkey dinners of years past.
So what more can be said? Delicious meal, friendly atmosphere, the price was right, and handy parking.
Need I say more...we'll be back!

There was a shortage of menus. We were seated for 10 minutes before a waiter came to our table. It was very loud which made it difficult to hear and understand the waitress who spoke with a thick accent. The veal marsala was too dried out.
All that having been said, it is our favorite for breakfast.

We ate dinner here after seeing good reviews on Yelp, and we were happy with our choice. Our Labor Day dinner was at 7 PM. We arrived about 10 minutes early and were asked if we wanted indoor or outdoor seating. We chose inside because the air was chilly, and we were seated promptly.

Our server was a lovely young lady, her service was attentive and appropriate.

My husband ordered a pineapple and tequila drink that had a jalapeno kick. Uummm, I almost had buyer's remorse except my Tito's blue with a ginger lime simple syrup was yummy too.

We started with a Caeser salad for me and a crab cake for him. The salad had nice croutons but I wish there was an option to add anchovies. The sauce accompanying the crab cake was tasty.

For dinner he had sumac dusted scallops and I had a swoon worthy branzano with zuchini, peppers and bacon having an agrodolce flavoring. We both would have licked our plates if we were home or if nobody was watching.

We were too full for dessert, though we did find the ice cream section and suddenly a small appetite revived. I had a pumpkin pie flavor and he had a peach crunch. Both were good.

RELIABLY VERY GOOD

We live here year round and eat at IK often. One can count on good service, interesting and delicious food which is imaginative and nuanced, fresh ingredients, and pleasant surroundings. The outside patio is especially well done with gorgeous planter boxes providing screening from the parking lot.
