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.
Great service and nice atmosphere
Island kitchen never disappoints!! A favorite!! Great outdoor seating and staff.
Food and service is always great. Outside porch is very nice on a summer evening
Never disappoints. Food and service consistently wonderful.
Great food and serving . Going back tonight.!!
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!
We had a wonderful dinner at Island Kitchen. Full pour of wine (just sayin'l, delicious scallops, great service.
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!
The food is the best.
Dinner was great and service perfect!
Food and service is always amazing. One of my all time favorite restaurants on Nantucket.
Nice restaurant very loud party adjacent to us but food and service were good
Delicious food and fun atmosphere
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.
Great experience all around. Gourmet quality food at everyday prices. Something for everybody. We had dinner with six people and everyone loved their meal.
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.
Good food. Good service. Good value
Very very very noisy
Both the service and the food were exceptional!
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.
This is the second time we have gone to Island Kitchen and it was fantastic. Sat at the bar and had great food and great service.
Excellent meal and ice cream right next door provided dessert for our crew. Service was unavailable when we needed the check but was prompt thereafter.
Terrific menu of beautifully combined ingredients. What a really enjoyable dining experience. Terrific staff too. Friendly, knowledgeable on the menu, and efficient. Highly recommended.
The server and the restaurant is amazing I’ve been there many times and the food has been great. Was disappointed with the dish I ordered this particular night but the waitress took care of it and we very much appreciated what she did for us she was great
Fun delicious food
Expensive for what you get
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.
Always a fun and delicious evening at Island Kitchen. Great food, friendly and attentive staff and beautiful outdoor seating.
My meatballs and butter noodles were tasteless. However, our spicy tequila cocktails were very good and different. I would like to try their breakfast. Cute place and nice location, able to park which is key.
Consistently Great !
