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.

The service was much better than under the last few owners of restaurants at this site. it was a pleasant evening. My spicy Portuguese tuna was exceptional, my husband found the seafood combo to be dry and not so great. The house salad was done nicely. We will probably go again.

We celebrated my wife’s 50th birthday with brunch at Nantucket’s. We loved the Signature Bloody Mary with a big chunk of lobster and candied bacon! The service and the food were both outstanding. We will be back soon.

Service was excellent. The owner stopped by and was very pleasant and friendly. Appetizers and entrees were well paced and presentation was very pleasing. One order had the wrong veggie and was changed out quickly and politely with an appropriate apology. We will definitely return and hopefully find parking in Port Jefferson.

We definitely love this place. It wasn’t our first time and we keep coming back. It was the first time taking my mother in law. What a hit! She loved all the food. The flat bread was so yummy along with the calamari and different sauces. I absolutely loved the halibut crusted with pistachio over lentil. It was so delicious. The waitress was very good and friendly. Kudos to the chef for making us a delicious dinner. All the seafood dishes and pastas are scrumptious!

Went for Restaurant Week. Don’t know what other choices are on the full menu. The seafood empanada and lobster bisque were good but nothing to write home about. My wife’s braised short rib was excellent. My shrimp on a bed of orzo was quite good, although when I saw another diner being served the pistachio crusted salmon w/asparagus, I felt that might have been the best choice. The vanilla ice cream filled crepe w/berries was excellent.
The service however, in my opinion, was mediocre. Overall a pleasant experience. I wouldn’t go out of my way to go back but if I was in Port Jeff I’d give it another shot.

When 3 out of 4 people get sick on salmon, management should take ownership of situation and offer to make good. Spent a lot of money and when called to explain what happened, I got manager on phone who was quite defensive and tried to say the food probably just didn't agree with the 3 people. Offered no recourse. Because of how the situation was handled, will not go back and will not recommend

Went for Restaurant week , menu was one app, main course, and desert. Service was a bit unenthusiastic, was seated next to a table of men who were loud and cursing until I asked them to please mind their manners as I was dinning with my wife at the next table . They apologized and bought our drinks , the food was good, prepared and presented well, wife had the salmon and I had gulf shrimp , both tasty. Desert and coffee again good . I would go back

I ordered the Day's Special--swordfish with a lemon, butter sauce that was accompanied by lobster mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. It was wonderful! Husband got awesome fish and chips.

Waitress, Cammy, was a delight and the host had a good sense of humor.

We had 7:45pm reservations on a Saturday night. Had a few drinks, enjoyed our friends. Service was attentive and polite (until they wanted to leave). The food was prompt, wonderful, tasty and hot. The reason for 3 stars is the place cleared out, we were the last ones there. at 9:45 we were still enjoying desert and some drinks when the lights were turned on full blast, the owner shut the heat off, and the staff were cleaning around us. When you pay over $300 for dinner you should be allowed to relax and enjoy the atmosphere and not be rushed out the door. After such a delicious dinner I was left with a terrible taste in my mouth. Not going back for a Saturday night dinner...

We went here with a party of 8 on New Year’s Day for my husbands birthday. Four adults and 3 small kids. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating. We ordered the baked clams, calamari and a third appetizer hat I can’t recall. Everything was delicious. My entree was the salmon which was soooo good. Two people in my party didn’t love their entrees, the seafood pasta and the lobster Mac and cheese. The fourth in our party had the chicken which they enjoyed. The kids shared pizza, fries and Mac and cheese. I would definitely go back to try out many of their other entrees. I imagine it is very pretty in the spring and summer since it overlooks the water. The price was also great.
