Contemporary American
Our new chef has a creative imagination and pushes the boundaries on eclectic flavors and ingredients with Seafood and American Fare. Our breads and desserts are made on premise. We offer gluten free and vegetarian options, and cater to dairy dietary restrictions.

Owner Richard Gertz is a seasoned restauranteur on Long Island, with over thirty years in the business. He transformed Panama Hatties, a local bar and grill in Huntington into a destination for fine dining. Richard opened this location as Crazy Fish Bar and Gill in July of 2016.

A new Chef team has inspired our name change to “Nantuckets” as our menus offer so much more than a bar and grill.

I made this reservation for my family of 11. The food was fantastic and the service was even better. The lobster chowder, and clam chowder are a must have to start your meal. You may want to try the seafood Paella too!!

The service was excellent and the food very good. The room was noisy, especially because of a table singing Xmas carols.

Now that the restaurant changed from being a fish house to american it's much better. Food was excellent service was a little slow that was ok for a Saturday night. Would definitely go back.

Everything was great! Food was fresh and well prepared and they had an awesome wine selection- even by the glass. The service was kinda and attentive without being overbearing. My only complaint was the lighting in the bar area was too bright and the fire place made it way too warm. Also- the bread basket was tiny. Otherwise- perfect.

Everyone enjoyed their food, although the hen dish was very salty. Sliders, seafood pasta, bolognese were all delicious. Service was very friendly and there seemed to be enough staff working for a less than full restaurant but the service was extremely slow.

We went for a birthday celebration with ten people. The service was awful. We were the only people at the resteraunt at 6pm drinks too 15 to 20 minutes each time someone ordered a drink. Our food order was placed and half our food order came out at 7:41pm. The other orders were sent to the wrong table, they were burgers. At about 8:15pm the burgers came out. At this point everyone's food was cold. The seafood was frozen and chewy. Overall the worst experience I have had.

Always enjoy coming back. I do wish they would've kept 'seafood bolognese' on the menu; we ordered 'seafood pasta' on accident because we thought that was the dish we remembered. Overall, still recommend dinner here.

Easily got a reservation shortly before time. But were told we could be seated with only drink menus because of a back up in kitchen. Tables were available? Told we'll take of you- assumed they would bring out an appetizer or offer a drink special but no- nothing. We found this very odd especially for a pricey place. Eventually we were allowed to order and food was ok and wait staff pleasant but view is parking lot. Much better places for price in area. Disappointed

Food was excellent. Seafood risotto, spring rolls, seafood pasta special, and strip steak all received raves. Service ok. Prices a tad high. Sat on deck. Vegetarians go somewhere else. Just spring rolls or salad. If you crave seafood you can’t go wrong here.

Three of us went for lunch. It was our first time at the restaurant. We all had the “fish of the day” sandwich. Delicious: fresh and perfectly pan seared on a nice ciabatta roll. The sides were also very good: French fries were a big hit, the quinoa & kale salad was a bit too salty for our liking. We split a rice pudding for dessert. It was excellent!
Our server, Cami, was awesome! There were lots of places to choose from in Port Jeff. I’m glad we ended up at Nantuckets.

I felt the two chaaawdah selections were pasty and the specialty flat bread too mushy. The mussels were very good as were the pasta dishes. The cappuccino crem brûlée had a weird flavor, but the key lime pie in a jar was good. I did not see the need for the jar part. Our server was from Chile and was exceptional. She could not have been sweeter and accurately described the mango spicy cocktail to my friend. We loved her. We will go again. I never like to judge a place on the first visit if it isn’t perfect. The owner greeted us at the door and was there to say goodbye. He asked us to come again and we will. Everyone should give it a shot.

First time heading to Nantucket’s since it changed over from Crazy Fish Bar & Gill (personally I liked to the former name better!) The menu has since changed a few of our favorites are gone but our blackened shrimp appetizer was great. My seafood bolongese was great - pasta cooked perfect. My husband ordered the seafood paella special... unfortunately he was not as pleased as I was. It was lacking flavor and the seafood was over cooked. Our servers were great and the bartender was attentive and remembered how we liked our drinks even after we left the bar and went to our table. To some, they may say the kitchen was slow, but we liked not being rushed through our meal. We enjoyed our evening.
