The spicy fried rice on the menu intrigued me, so we walked over to the restaurant from town. It only took about 10 minutes. We got there faster than we thought, so we were early for our reservation, but they graciously seated us immediately. I had the spicy fried rice and my wife had the veggie fettucine. They were both... More

The restaurant is about 10-15 minutes walk out of the center of town, and the walk is a nice way to end an evening at 56 Union. We eight had a lovely meal there last week, from start to finish. Great coffee martinis! Loved the mussel appetizer (plenty for an entree with a starter) Quietly elegant place.

Food was reasonably good, and berry shortcake was delicious. A little pricey, but not surprisingly so for Nantucket.

It's always good to return to scene of good memories and find that it's still good. The staff, the food, were as good as I remembered. The fluke is very good, a mild fish with a nutty covering and the tuna was to die for. The outdoor area is very nice...if the weather is nice, request that area. They have... More

Nantucket has lots of great restaurants but most are in town. On a busy weekend 56 union is a better choice. Same great food but out of town and parking.

The food and desert were very good I have no complaints there. The prices seem average for Nantucket island. The service was very good. The building is on the edge of town parking wasn't too bad. Inside is nice its not a large restaurant and the noise can be somewhat loud. Especially when you have a group that doesn't have... More

We only stayed on the island for a day, but were very surprised by 56 Union. The owner Peter came out and personally greeted us. The staff was very nice and checked on us regularly. We ordered the curried mussels and dim sum for appetizers. Both were done perfectly. For dinner I had the salmon pad Thai. Very generous portion... More

My husband and I got married at Fifty-Six Union in October and it was the perfect venue for our 70-person wedding. We were already familiar with the restaurant’s fun, cozy atmosphere and we knew the food would be excellent. Wendy and Peter (the owners) were great to work with, taking much of the stress out of wedding planning. Fifty-Six Union... More

Nothing fries me more when it comes to a restaurant than a website menu that is out of date. If you are going to charge high prices, I expect the online menu to be updated. I chose 56 union based on a desert. The smore one to be exact. I thought about it for the two days prior to going... More
