The surf and turf was fantastic. Our server was great to start with, but lost interest in our table halfway through our dinner. It wasn’t even busy.

Worst service we have ever had at a restaurant downtown! We waited 10 minutes between sitting down and waiting on a server. We ordered drinks and waited another 15 minutes before we saw her again. I asked a question about the menu and she stated she would be right back after she sat her tray down. We didn’t see her again for another 20 minutes. Didn’t think it took that long to sit a tray down. The steak was bland to say the least. The only good thing were the drinks. We had our car valet parked and was shocked that the attendant didn’t even have his shirt tucked in. If I’m coming to a nice restaurant and spending the amount of money we did, I expected better service from beginning to end. We will never return!

We ate at Nantucket's before going to the Peace Center. The manager was so nice to get us a table at 6:30 so that we could eat and be at the show on time. The food and the service was excellent.

Had brunch with my Mother and we loved it! Met Kimberly the manager, she was so wonderful. Chef Tony also came out and said hello, not just to us but to the other tables. Service was quick. We loved being able to see the skaters on the rink. Great place, can't wait to go back!

We were very disappointed in the seating......we are very regular customers and we made reservation well ahead but they put us in a very busy traffic area with waiters coming and going. The table couldn't have been any smaller. I always order the turf and surf and it usually comes with drawn butter.....this time it had a heavy gravy over the lobster , plus the meal was lukewarm and we had to send it back.
The waiter (who did a fine job) and manager were apologetic but the dining experience was far from what we expected. We will return though!

Excellent service and overall the food was decent. The bread could use more flavor and my fish was good, but not great. A little pricey, but I knew that before I sat down.

We were seated at a small table right up against the wall with limited elbow room. The ambiance was less than desirable and food was tasteless. We ordered the 3-course meal, we were told that they would box the desert to go because there was not enough time to get desert prior to the Play at the Peace Center, despite the fact we had 1.5 hours. Needless to say, the pie arrived boxed 5 minutes later.
Will never return.

Although the food was good. Pricing would seem to indicate that it would have been excellent. Steak was not hot service was just OK and ambience was good but not excellent. I believe the reason this place does well is because of location.

We were 6 for New Years Eve. This is the 6th year in a row that we've held our family NYE at a Rick Erwin's Restaurant. Five times at Nantucket and last year at East side. I had made my reservation though open table as I have all the other years. Every time we've been at Nantucket they have stuck us in the back room, which we all dislike. This year, I called and left a message to please not put us in that room. About a week before NYE I got a call from the manager who assured me we would have a wonderful table...and he was true to his word!!! Four of us ordered the Lobster Thermador and two ordered the Salmon. All was very good. Our server was very good, very professional and we had a beautiful round table in the center of the restaurant which made conversation perfect. We will keep coming back to Rick Erwin restaurants. Oh yes, Mr. Erwin himself stopped at our table to wish us a NYE...he's a great guy and runs a wonderful business.

Nantucket is an excellent (albeit high end) restaurant. We're not accustomed to going to a high end restaurant but when we do, we like Nantucket. Food was excellent and the atmosphere is great. Our server was attentive and the meal was well-presented. Basically, we enjoyed the whole experience.

We opted for a staycation for NYE and stayed at the Courtyard and made reservations for 5p because I waited to 5 weeks out and everything was scooped up. My first time at Nantucket and it didn't disappoint. Service was on point and we felt very well take care of by our server. My wife and I had the Petite Filet and the pinot demi was sooooo good. I'm glad that we went but sad it took me so long to go. Looking forward to returning and trying the Coriander Rubbed Swordfish.

Had a 4:45 reservation for 2, called restaurant directly and changed to 4 at 5:00 pm. I then got a confirmation of that at 5:00 for 4 from Open Table. The hostess called me as we were walking in, tried to argue with me, I passed, and then we got put at the lousiest table in the restaurant. I can get over that.....then the service was less than stellar. When we asked about any "New Years Specials" honest to god the wait person said "it is right in front of your in print". Wow. The food was outstanding, and I would not let those two folks that probably won't last ruin a restaurant. I had the trout, could not have been better!

Food was excellent and portions were perfect. Our only issue was our waiter disappeared for a couple of long stretches and we were paused in our meal waiting for silverware and condiments. Another waiter that wasn’t ours did step in and was helpful or else I would have rated the service as 2 stars. In observing the service other customers had around us, I believe it was more on the individual versus the overall level of service in the restaurant.

Sat at the bar and Greg and staff did a fabulous job. Rick came in and spoke to everyone. Unexpected due to it being Christmas Eve.

Restaurant and bar was packed.

Thanks for a great evening.

This was my wife’s b day, they restaurant gave us a card signed by the servers, we had scallops which were excellent and the stuffed flounder, again very good, both these were specials for the evening. Only disappointment was they were out of the desert we wanted the chocolate layer cake for 2.
Other than the desert it was a nice experience and we will go back

This has become a holiday tradition for us -- we attend a concert at the Peace Center on Sunday afternoon, then head over to Rick Erwin's Nantucket for dinner afterwards. And the experience was as wonderful as always. Our server, Leah, was friendly and fun, but not intrusive, the restaurant accommodated our request (noted in our reservation) to have a table overlooking the ice rink, and the food was absolutely fabulous. I really can't think of anything that could have improved our evening...it was absolutely perfect. Thank you to the staff for, once again, making our visit one of the highlights of our holiday season.

Please Bring Back Sunday Brunch BUFFET!

Not regularly being Open on Sundays is confusing to folks that love to make Rick Erwin's that special treat we love on Sundays.

Upon arrival at 11:15 for our Reservation there was no Valet. Because Valet is shared with the Courtyard, the hotel staff spoke up and said Nantucket doesn't even open till 4pm.

No schedule of when Open or Closed?

This is fabulous dining and with the Ice on Main kids Skating next door, a tremendous time to be Open!

We have enjoyed returning to celebrate Anniversaries at Nantucket and my family from The Keys said it was the Finest Seafood they have had. They had Brunch then returned for Dinner 2 nights in a row.

Sunday Brunch was a time we even saw our neighbors enjoying the experience. Seemed to be very busy, rather than only 3 tables yesterday.

I have always been pleased to recommend Sunday Brunch at Rick Erwin's.

I hope Ownership will reconsider!

We dined prior to attending Holiday at Peace with our out of town guests. As always we loved our experience. Our family also commented on the delicious food and beautiful room. I had one of the specials: Flounder stuffed with crab over creamed spinach. It was wonderful. I couldn't finish it, but hated leaving it behind since we were heading to the Peace Center. Our server explained that I could leave it and pick it up after the performance which I did. It was just as delicious the next day for lunch. Thanks for that recommendation.
Always a perfect place to dine before theater or symphony. We'll be back...
