Rick Erwin’s Nantucket Seafood Ratings and Reviews
Nantucket has been one of our favorite restaurants in Greenville for many years. When Nantucket first opened the staff set the standard for 5 star dining. I felt like I was seated at the Golden Corral this past Saturday evening. We had a reservation for 4 at 6:30. We chose Nantucket because we had tickets for the opening performance of the GSO at 8:00. We could enjoy dinner and walk across the street to the Peace Center following dinner. Our waiter never attended to our drink refills and never returned to our table. At 7:40 we flagged down another waitress to alert someone that we had not been served our entrees and that we needed to leave for our performance. The waiter then arrived asking how we wanted the bill split! For food we had never been served!
It was our first time to Rick Erwin's Nantucket. I made RSVP and stated it was our Anniversary. I expected they would give us a nice table, but we were shown to the first booth that is right on the busiest part of the place. . Plus the booth was HUGE for 2 people. They were kind enough to move us to a window seat, which was much nicer. Being from New England I have high expectations for seafood. We got the Mussels Meuniere. They were nice, but very under salted and needed more garlic. We also both had the She Crab Soup, again nice, but zero crab in the soup, and we had to ask for the sherry. Then we had the Seafood Trio. The lobster tail was amazing, the scallops were tasty, but the crab cake was not cooked in the center, just one gloopy mess. It is a very pretty place but not quite hitting on all cylinders. The waitress was nice, but cold, and not attentive at all. Just perfunctory and robotic. It could have been a fantastic experience for $200 (ish), but yet it was just "Meh". Greenville needs more independently owned fine dining and not all these places owned by one person who knows little about the quality if food being pushed out the door. Oh, The hostest (an older lady with longer black hair) could learn how to smile and at least seem happy to customers. I don't think we will return to this place. Too bad, we wanted to love it.
It was a Sunday and the brunch consisted of a pretty lavish buffet. I only got as far as the cold and warm appetizer though it looked as if the carvery table was also elaborate. My favorite was the She Crab Soup accompanied by a pitcher of Sherry. It was such a treat that I considered having another cup for dessert!
Our server was very good and my only complaint was that the Eggs Benedict had been in the hot, covered pan so long that the English Muffin beneath was too petrified to cut into.
I would love to go back sometime and have the full dinner menu rather than a buffet.
Love calamari? Get the calamari. Hate calamari? Get the calamari. As a self-appointed connoisseur and ambassador of calamari, this is some of the best calamari I've ever had. Stupid delicious. Cooked to perfection. Oh and the shrimp and grits are also stupid delicious.
Wonderful food and excellent service, as always. Our servers Tasha and Calvin were great and made a fabulous meal even better. I've eaten here many times over the last few years, and have brought friends from out of town. Everyone raves about the food and service, and drinks. The bar is awesome.
Never had a bad experience at ANY of RE's locations- always so good. Only complaint was th Sunday brunch was a little pricey if you don't have a big appetite. However, there are so many choices ....so even if you get a tiny bit of everything you have a full plate.
Though Nantucket's has a reputation of being pricy, you can actually enjoy a top-notch seafood dinner at a fair price with nice tasting menu with three courses and some delicious specials. You'll find an outstanding wine list to accompany your meal. There's really nowhere else to go for really fresh seafood as far as we are concerned. Top notch meal!
We ate here prior to a production at the Peace Center, which is directly across the street. Could not be more convenient! The food was delicious. Our table ordered crab cakes, scallops, salmon, shrimp and cod. Everyone was quite pleased. Some of the best high-end seafood I've ever had. We will definitely try to get a table next time we go to the theater.
Food and service were great. One of our meals was not hot enough, but as soon as we mentioned it to our server, the floor manager came to apologize and investigate the reason. She found out that one of their warming elements was not working and reported back that they had fixed it. Very professionally handled.
Excellent dining experience! Our friends were celebrating their anniversary, and upon arrival they were congratulated and given an anniversary card signed by all the staff--a great start to a wonderful meal. We all had seafood (crab cakes, lobster tail, scallops), and all were cooked to perfection. The white chocolate and coconut cream pie was to die for as was the creme brûlée. Our entrées were a little slow in arriving as they knew we were going to The Peace Center after dinner, but all in all, it was a wonderful dinner. Edgar was very professional and treated us with a wonderful dining experience. Thanks, Edgar!
Our 52nd Wedding anniversary. Waiter (Charles) wished us a happy anniversary and proferred two glasses of champagne. Very nice touch. This was a night with a performance across the street at the Peace Center and was very busy. There were a few delays but not the waiter's fault. He just had way too many tables, until the theater crowd cleared out. There was a Happy Anniversary card signed by all the restaurant staff, in addition to the champagne. Food was excellent. My wife's crab cake was loaded with crab meat and my grouper was perfectly cooked. We have not eaten at Nantucket in the last couple of years , mostly because we avoid the downtown restaurants at night. We will be rethinking this and will be back to Nantucket. Thanks, Rick.
