Sadly the restaurant and service is past it's prime. Very disappointing service and no longer top notch food. I brought my family for dinner and had to struggle for service.

Great food , large wine list in the middle of nowhere. The place was full but the quality was there. Very good overall , maybe they need some help with the waiters ....a little more training and a few more, good job over all

Food is top shelf, interesting preparations showing taste and technique. Service is adequate ,but a little disengaged, while not being attentive. They also try very hard to sell things, caviar for example without seeming to understand what is being offered . The sommelier was not pleased that our wine selection was different from his suggestion, he never seemed to get... More

Beautiful scenery, excellent service, fabulous fare made this outdoor lunch worth repeating every time I'm on Nantucket. Try the Wau-tini, but don't even think about driving in summer traffic afterwards.

We stayed in the Wauwinet Hotel in Nantucket for a week and had most of our meals at the Wauwinet. The food is very good and the staff could not do enough for you. They remembered our names and took care of everything we wanted

The Wauwinet has the most amazing views of the sunset from its sweeping lawn. We ate dinner in the very formal dining room at Toppers. The waiter took a while to come over and did apologize, telling us he had to wrap up a party so they could make the boat back to town. The presentation of the food was... More

The view is spectacular, the resort is quiet & serene --heavenly. The food is very good but the service is sublime.the wait staff is trained at the highest level. Staff is friendly & bends over backwards to accommodate the guests. We always visit Toppers & the Wauwinet when in Hyannis. The boat launch ride from the White Elephant is highly... More

The place is beautiful. However it is a huge rip off. The prices are outrageous for the morsel of food they serve. Save your money.

Service was incredibly uneven. Food was decent but nothing overwhelmingly amazing. Every item was very rich and decadent and it would've been nice to have some simpler menu items (especially for guests who ate there again and again due to staying at the isolated hotel). Wine selection was excellent. Beautiful setting which made the prices not as cringe-worthy as they... More

We took the boat over from the White Elephant pier with cocktails going over, it was just a beautiful evening. I learned about a new wine from Canaros, that was great...kowledgeble staff from a-z.
