This little restaurant, tucked in on a Nantucket side street, it just the ticket for a cozy and tasty dinner or lunch. A fully stocked bar and a wonderful seasonal menu make this a place we come back to often. Last week we enjoyed delicious Nantucket bay scallops fresh off the boat paired with a coconut pineapple risotto. The price... More

We ate here in October with friends. Queequegs is small and cozy with a nice bar and comfortable seating. The staff could not be friendlier and with a nice downtown location, this is a good spot for a reasonably priced dinner the heart of the historic district. This was clearly a fall menu with braised short ribs on the menu... More

Queequeg's (and its sister restaurant, Town, next door) prepare tasty food and libations. In the summer months, the "tree bar" (on the patio shared by both restaurants) is an especially attractive and small area which is actually located beneath a tree. The food is not haute cuisine, but the menu has some interesting selections and will satisfy most diners.

Our meal was delicious from the short ribs that both my mother and I decided to try to the chocolate cake with the orange sauce that I am still talking about. I can't wait to go back!

This is one of my favorite restaurants on Nantucket. The food is great as well as the selection! They have half plates for some dishes which isa real plus You will always find some great additions to the menu also. I would definitely try this place out on your next visit to Nantucket.

My husband and I had the pleasure of eating at Queequeg's during a recent weekend on Nantucket. The atmosphere, service, and most of all the food were fabulous! We started with the Skillet Roasted Mussels which were cooked perfectly and in a delicious broth. Next, a nice bottle of wine and our entree's. The Veal Bolognese for me the Shrimp... More

We have been to Queequeg's several times and although, I still have difficulty saying the name. The food and ambiance make it worth the mispronunciation. On the weekends, it has a definite local crowd. We like that it is kind of tucked away and you really don't notice as you are walking past.

Of all the restaurants we tried during our week's stay, this had the best food. Service was friendly and timely. My scallops were cooked through as requested and in a very tasty sauce.

Heard nothing but great things. However, we were very disappointed. Service was awful. Waitress didn't seem like she wanted to be there at all. Cocktails were lacking. Will not be back.
