Gorgeous view, good food, and a great way to see more of the island

While it ended up pouring rain during our lunch, the patio was covered so we could still enjoy the view of the grounds and the ocean. The food was fresh, perfect lunch fare, service was good. I'm glad we made the trip to Wauwinet to see the property and enjoy a nice lunch

We were highly pressured to purchase the many prix fix dinner options. A very hard sell. Then, if you didn't want to gorge yourself on so many courses, you were made to feel bad that you only wanted alacarte. It was like running a sales business, not a fine dining restaurant. The whole evening was ruined. This was not our... More

Dear DogMom, Thank you for taking the time to share with us on Trip Advisor. I'm so sorry you ended up with a rainy afternoon, but sometimes a rainy grey day out on Nantucket can have a wonderful romantic and charming play on the day.

Arrived early for a cocktail on the lawn overlooking the harbor. Atmosphere enhanced by beach roses everywhere and rabbits making their appearance at dusk. A number of patrons arrived by boat. Then there was the awesome dinner served by Joy. The pate melted in my mouth, as did the crab & lobster cakes, the chowder, the steak frites and the... More

We ventured out to this restaurant, a twenty minute ride, based on great reviews and left hungry! Considering the $60.00 cost, the lobster was only five bites and the few vegetables served were floating in a black squid ink which did not enhance the flavor. Where was the bisque mentioned on the menu? My friend had the Haddock which was... More

To me an exceptional dining experience, starts from the moment you're greeted to the end of the experience. I take into account service, food, presentation, wine, and decor.

We went on a rainy, cold night in early June. Our luggage had been lost by the airline, and when finally delivered 24 hrs later, was soaking wet. We were warmed and cheered by our dinner at Topper's.
