Great Fish Entrees

This place was great. The food was excellent and prepared very well. The wait staff had a funny disposition...especially when we skipped dessert but otherwise a pleasant experience.

I've had dinner here a handful of times. It's my go to since 21 Federal closed. The food is spot on and unique to the island. Whenever I get a steak entrée, its cooked perfectly. Great wines to pair as well.

The food was excellent and our waiter, Gregory was very professional and attentive. You won't be disappointed. Everything on Nantucket is a little expensive so just sit back and enjoy the ride.

We went to Nantucket for the day and after looking at all the restaurants open for lunch, decided on Dune. It was very quiet, as we dined at 2:00. Our server was wonderful - full of pep and fun banter. We had great drinks - one made with Bourbon was wonderful but I can't remember the name. We had a... More

Booked a dinner reservation using OpenTable for a Monday night at 6 pm. Arrived a few minutes early and was told that the kitchen doesn't open until 6 so we could not be seated unless we wanted to sit at the bar. The location was obviously empty at this point since the restaurant was not open. We waited a few... More

Great atmosphere, service and menu. Best of 21 vacation dinners (considering we had a number of great meals...this is strong vote).

Pouring rain in Nantucket and difficult to find a parking spot were the only flaws with our date at Dune. Gregory our waiter dried us off with cocktails but was a little too giddy. My wife enjoyed the fluke and I had the sirloin steak both cooked and presented to perfection. Not skimpy on portions with no room for dessert... More

Service starts at the front according to most great restaurant owners. If that's true than the customs agent at the front door needs to go. We had a reservation for 5 and the customs agent insisted it was for 4 and spent 10 minutes getting approval from the supervisor. After the bad start, our dinner was great. Our waiter was... More

Had an absolutely delightful meal here. Started with raw oysters, then beef carpaccio that melted in the mouth. My girlfriend had the fluke and I had the rare tuna. Both cooked to perfection and delicious. Finished with the creme brulee cheesecake. Service was outstanding and the ambiance was charming. Nice when people are not seated on top of each other...

We went there with two friends and were seated promptly at our reservation time and then had a wonderful server who helped us with the menu. The dishes from oysters to fluke were all fantastic and really well presented and there was a good wine list to match. All in all a very good experience.
