Great place for breakfast

When we stay in Nantucket and breakfast isn't included we come here. It's small with a counter overlooking the grill and cooking area and tables against the wall. They have dinner, but we've never gone there for it. I recently had the French toast with a cinnamon pecan crunch and my husband had a... read more

I choose the Thai scrabble for breakfast which was incredible. But it was exceptionally warm inside the very quaint restaurant. They do have a charming patio and I wished we requested that. But food is wonderful.

Spicy Thai scramble was awesome! Bits of broccoli, potato, and cheese along with specialty bread toasted and hash browns. The Portuguese scramble was wonderful with Linguine/ meat, fresh spinach and tomatoes, and cheese served with the creamiest cheesy grits you'll ever have - and hash browns and toast too. We sat at the (food) bar and watched the chef prepare... More

Reasonable breakfast selection. Somewhat crowded and rushed service. Given the apparent popularity of this place that does not surprise me. Whilst we enjoyed our breakfast here, it is not a place that stands out for me.

My husband and I have been visiting Nantucket for 20 years. Over that time we have dined in many Nantucket establishments and every year return to many favorites, including BE Susan's. Sadly, this year we made the decision to take Black-Eyed Susan's off of our list of return restaurants. This is the second time we have encountered problems at this... More

We love Black Eye Susan's for breakfat and now for dinner. The food was creative and delicious. The service was excellent. No air conditioning (or at least none that is noticable) so dress appropriately particularly if you are there on a warm night. The only drawback is their reservation process (BTW, used by several restaurants on the island) which is... More

Reservations required. BYOB. If just two people, request the counter to be close to cooks. Fish specials particularly good.
