                                                              Such poor slow service. Took an hour for sliders. When I inquired why it was taking so long the server, who was never around, said it took so long bc I ordered the silver dollar sized pieces of meat well done. We will never go back.

                                                              I would recommend Nantuckets for lunch on a "regular" weekday. Food is outstanding! I would stay away from special event dinners (Valentine's, Mother's Day, etc), as the place gets very crowded, and parking becomes even more difficult than it already is.

                                                              Dinner was ok. My daughter said that Nantuckets was hit or miss but we decided to give them a try. We had to ask for bread and that didn't come out until the appitizers were brought out. My mussels were very good however my husband's dumplings were just good. I ordered the marinated steak and when it came it had not been marinated or seasoned. My husband ordered the pork chop and although tender it too had no seasoning at all. Dessert - flourless chocolate cake was too sweet and not much flavor. I ordered the smashed apple and that also had no taste. The waiters however did hustle to get things moving. It was the cook who left something to be desired.

                                                              While I would recommend that people try this restaurant our experience was not great as it took more than an hour for the main course to come (after the appetizers). We asked about this numerous times but it was way too long to be sitting and waiting for the main course. Manager said it was because it as crowded, orders go in differently etc but 2-3 taels came in after us and were finished with their dinners before we got ours. When it cane, however the food was very good.

                                                              We took advantage of winter restaurant week and enjoyed our Friday night dinner at Nantuckets. The service was great as usual, such a polite and accommodating staff. Food was great, we had the seafood pasta and the strip steak (not a great cut of meat, but the marinade was good and it was cooked to the perfect temperature) the apple dessert was to die for. Thanks Nantuckets!

                                                              My wife choose this restaurant due to location and had a 4.5 star rating. The occasion was for my 50th birthday. We made a reservation on a timely basis for a particular seat in the restaurant which became unavailable. The food was excellent. The service was very slow. After we finished our dinner and we were waiting for our desert, we did not see a waiter/server for about 20 minutes. We finally had waived down the waiter/server and said it would be out in a minute. The desert finally came out 10-15 minutes later. The waiter/server did not even ask if we would like coffee or tea. The communication was very poor and made us feel like we were valued customers. I would not recommend this restaurant.

I had the spring rolls for appetizer and my husband had the pork dumplings and they were amazing and plentiful. I had the marinated shell steak and my husband had the pork chop. We were sooo stuffed afterwards that we could barely finished our smashed apple for dessert.. Everything was so delicious and huge portions. I would love to come back again soon,

It was the perfect date night spot with personable and friendly service, amazing food and a great date night ambiance. I also like that it’s off the main streets in Port Jeff so parking was easy. We’ll definitely be back!

                                                              We disappointed that when the bill came there was a $15.00 surcharge for the steak & shrimp dinner. This was a price fixe menu for New Years Eve and neither my wife nor I was made aware that there would be a surcharge. We did not recall seeing it on the menu and it was not stated on the online menu as well. Although the food and the service were very good, we still left with a bad taste in our mouths.

                                                              This was our second time at Nantuckets and we really enjoyed the food and ambiance. They have a different meditteranean menu and we each thoroughly enjoyed our meals and service. We will be back on our next trip to Long Island.

                                                              My experience at Nantucket restaurant is the single biggest reason I’ve planned another weekend in Port Jefferson. The sautéed Calamari was “over the moon” which was followed by one of the best Flounder with lobster/crab I’ve ever eaten. Fantastic evening!!!

The seating area was dark and cold. The food was not as we remembered it at all. The service was very good, but that was about it.

The Bloody Mary had just the right amount of horseradish and spice. Service and ambience were both wonderful. Highly recommend this place.
