The food and service was excellent as always. Sat in small dining area that would have been perfect if a large group had not been seated in there also. They were loud.

I have been to Rick Erwin before and each time I have be happy with the service and food. This visit was my both of my daughter's first time and they absolutely loved it. I would like to point that the Salmon ceviche was absolutely delicious. I look forward to my next visit.

my Cioppino was very good, but my wife's risotto and scallops was watery and bland....the scallops at the Trappe Door were much better. The roasted oysters were excellent as was the key lime pie.

The Surf and Turf and the Lobster Thermidor were both delicious! The Steak au poivre was a bit chewy but had good flavor.

Seriously one of the best dining experiences I have had in a while. Everything from the service to the food to the ambiance was stellar. The food was phenomenal, the valet was courteous, and my waitress was excellent. The portion sizes are great! Unlike those top dollar restaurants that give you a decorated morsel of food in the center of your plate. I had an appetizer, a main course, and a drink, and I had enough left over to take home. The scallops were so moist and juicy, the risotto exploded with flavor, and the calamari was exquisite; just the right amount of crunch. Not over-breaded. I’ll be returning for dinner this Friday.

Wanted a nice meal and have never been here before. The service was horrendous. We ended up leaving without ever eating. Sad because this was my surprise for Valentines Day! First bad review I have ever written.

The food was slow in coming out and average to below average. Usually that wouldn’t be a one star but the price was way too high for the poor quality. Add in the poor atmosphere, and bad service and the result was a bad experience overall. Would not return or recommend.

My husband and I had a fabulous dinner Valentine’s Day. Love the west coast oysters, the steaks as always were prepared perfectly. Crab stuffed trout was the best I’ve ever tasted! Service was amazing. The manager, she is so gracious and pleasant. It is always a pleasure dining at all of the Rick Erwin restaurants 💕

Ordered a drink with club soda that was flat. The bartender argued with me saying it wasn't. My filet mignon was cut in to, I assume to check how it was cooked. My lobster wasn't thoroughly cooked and chewy.

Rick Erwin's Nantucket Seafood is an incredible restaurant! The service was great - we never had to ask for anything. The food was amazing! The steaks are grilled perfectly and their she crab soup was some of the best I've ever tasted. They have a wide selection of drinks and their desserts are delicious. I highly recommend Rick Erwin's Nantucket Seafood for a special night out or if you're craving scrumptious seafood.

We chose to go to Rick Erwin's on Valentine's day and made reservations months in advance for early seating. We were seated early but due to some unexplained mix-up, we were noted as a no-show - an embarrassment at best. Our waiter, while courteous, was inexperienced and obviously flustered by the expected number of table turns for the evening. We were in and out in an hour which is not our usual pace - preferably allowing 1-1/2 to 2 hours for a relaxing meal.

The food was perfectly prepared and had outstanding flavor, and the wine selection was excellent. The serving pace was too fast and I think the prices were rather high. We have enjoyed the ambiance and quality of food and service at Rick Erwin's in the past, however, we will avoid holidays and expected high volume dining days in the future.

We had a party of 8 celebrating Valentine’s Day. I t was probably one of the best meals we’ve all ever had in Greenville. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. We will definitely be back again and again!

The shrimp was way overcooked (rubbery) in the shrimp and grits. Ahi tuna was sinewy and fishy. Our Valentines dinner was unfortunately inedible and a huge disappointment. Restaurant had wonderful ambiance and staff is wonderful.

The ambiance and service is amazing! The drinks, wine and She Crab soup also amazing! I was not overly impressed with the Surf n' Turf special which I ordered as the lobster was overcooked but they were very prompt in an attempt to make it right. I would definitely give it another shot but will try other entrees. Definitely go to experience their signature cocktails and the She Crab soup!!!!

The food, as expected, was out of this world. The service was spot on. I don’t think my glass ever got lees than half full. Not only was our server attentive, but she displayed a great sense of humor and the perfect amount of interaction. The restaurant was very quiet which made conversation easy and enjoyable. I would highly recommend Nantucket for a special night out.

Too much food with each serving - an American problem, I think.

Brunch at Nantucket on Sunday. Service is always excellent at Rick Erwin restaurants as is the ambiance. However, the food was truly awful. My quiche was served very cold and wasn't good. The potatoes are too heavily laden with garlic for early in the day. My friend's she crab suup was also served cold and that is distasteful. The side dish of fruit included huge whole strawberries (along with raspberries and blueberries) that you could not even cut in the bowl they were served in and couldn't eat otherwise. This isn't the first time I've had a bad brunch meal at Nantucket. There are several other downtown restaurants that can satisfy our brunch needs in the future.

Oysters were fresh and delicious as well as the off menu special of seafood trio. Waiter was polite but seemed to be waiting on more tables than is typical for a pricier place although the place seemed to have copious staff around. This took away from the overall experience and the desire to return when visiting again.
