We celebrated a birthday and we had the BEST time! The hostesses were very hospitable from the time we walked in. Our waiter was AMAZING! He was friendly, personable, and took care of our table very well. We ordered multiple appetizers, a combination of entrees, and was given complimentary dessert! I can't wait to go back!

Highly recommend this restaurant. The service was beyond good. The food was excellent - calamari, greens salad, crab stuffed trout and grouper. The wine list was also extensive. It was quiet and nicely done decor. My husband and I were thrilled with our choice of a date night!

We we dining before a show at the Peace Center (Genevieve’s). Since COVID-19 emerged, this was only the third time we have dined out. I was in desperate need of good fish/seafood. Nantucket did not disappoint. Service was excellent. The restaurant exercised very good COVID manners in helping us feel safe. The four of us enjoyed our meals - grouper, swordfish and chicken Marsala. We thought the price was a good value for the quality and ambience. We will definitely go back.

The server did a nice job, it was the coordination of things that seemed tricky for them. We didn't get the bread until much later, and then my husband ordered a wedge as his main, which seemed to throw them for a loop. I would think a place like this would be far more accustomed to customization.

Wonderful meal at Rick Erwin's. For appetizers I had a tasty clam chowder and my wife had wonderful garden salad. I had the flaky white fish with braised ribs. Very Yummy. Sort of a surf and turf. My wife had the Seafood trio (Lobster, crab cake, scallops). We had a HUGE slice of chocolate cake for desert. Fabulous.

We ate there Thursday night for a quick twilight meal, and it was so good we went back Saturday for a full dinner.

To top it off we met Rick Erwiun who came over to see if we enjoyed our meal. A special treat...

Everything about the meal was fantastic, The food and service were outstanding. The ice on main rink being open right outside added to the magic of the evening. Can’t say enough what a wonderful job Rick Erwin’s does.

We love this place. The food is outstanding but the service is what makes the difference.
Love the menu and all the choices.
One suggestion is to change the type of music.
Listening to a loud Rolling Stones song did not fit the atmosphere.
We will be back.

Excellent Food and Service. We had the daily special seafood combination, the parmesan encrusted grouper and the ciopino. all were excellent. The bread was memorable. Our appetizers were the calamari (very tender), the shrimp cocktail (a good standard), the oysters crabRokefeller, and the mixed seafood ceviche. The last was truly a delight. Next time we will order several of the ceviche dishes.

This is a great spot and the less than stellar rating has to do with our initial treatment. We had a reservation for outdoor dining and were lead to a table that clearly had not been prepared for guests. We were seated and for ten minutes we watched two other tables be waited on while we were ignored. I went to the hostess who was superb and she was profusely apologetic. Once we were finally acknowledged, it could not have been better. The service was then excellent as was the food. We'll go back as they worked very hard to make things right. Nobody is perfect but how a business responds is the real test and Rick Irwin's Nantucket Seafood definitely passed the test!

This is the most romantic restaurant I have been to in a long time. This is not to be missed. But it is extremely hard to locate.

We walked right past it. So get good directions - it's in the Fidelity building.

Fabulous surroundings, drinks and meal. I give this a 36!!! Awesome and wonderful.
Can't wait to go back, you will not be disappointed.
