Stopped by to get a sandwich prior to taking the jeep tour to Great Point Lighthouse. While the wait was over 15 minutes I had been warned by the reviews, so I allowed extra time before going on the outing. Worth the wait.

the food tastes good--and i love the stuffing and cranberries on the turkey sandwhich--but they serve pressed turkey--if that does not bother you, then this is basically a 4 star place--but for me pressed turkey is awful--the servers all say it is 'fresh turkey' but when pressed (ha) most do not understand the difference between real turkey breast and pressed...

Read great reviews about Provisions. I'm not sure what happened today. My family went to breakfast there this morning. My husband and son said that their breakfast was ok. My daughter and I did not like our breakfast at all. The sandwiches were wrong but didn't notice until we got back to the boat. Our coffees had that burnt taste... More

Provisions has excellent sandwiches and we all enjoyed our selections. (most were a shade over $9) There is only limited seating inside, with a few benches outside. I think it really felt more like a take out place, but there are some seats. Be advised, that this is a cash only place and watch your bill. I was overcharged, and... More

There's a reason for the line. All sandwiches are the same price and well worth it. ($9.95) We split a traditional turkey sandwich which was GREAT.

I got the turkey, stuffing and cranberry sandwich, and it was huge. Can be shared! It was quick service, they have it down to a science!

This is where the locals pick up goodies so if you're day tripping in Nantucket, get off the ferry at Straight Wharf and stop in Provisions for the most delicious sandwich, Cape Cod chips, and a drink. Take your lunch and sit on the dock to eat. Relax by the water and the watch boats come in while you eat... More

Stopped by for quick breakfast after the ferry ride. Bagel, bagel sandwich and coffees. They were very good and the service was good. Very tasty breakfast. Great coffee.
