Awesome Sandwiches for the Ferry Ride

When leaving Nantucket Island, we always stop at Provisions, a great little sub shop right near the ferry docks. They have a great menu to choose from, but my husband almost always gets the Italian sub, and I usually go with the BLT. The servings are generous, not overly pricey, and they are... read more

I was not impressed with Provisions. Organic normally means fresh and tasty. May sandwich was less than memorable and my wife'ssalad was old greens. For these prices I expect more.

Love the turkey terrific, best tasting sandwich. Ingredients always seem very fresh. But, in typical Nantucket fashion, it was $30 for 2 deli style sandwiches, chips and a drinks. And my bread was stale.

No atmosphere, but that is outside on the many benches. Sandwiches are huge and two people can share one sandwich. Great location to the cruise line.

This lovely little sandwich shop on Straight Wharf is delicious. It is close to where you get off the ferry. It is mostly take out and there are places to sit outside where you can enjoy your food. The breakfast sandwiches were amazing: toasted English muffin, herbed egg scramble, thick crispy bacon, cheese, and this amazing jam/chutney! This little place... More

We stop here each trip to Nantucket for a filling and tasty lunch or for a meal to take to the beach. The service is quick and the staff friendly.bif you choose to eat... More

We picked up a chicken curry sandwich and a cobb salad to have on the boat back to the mainland. Both were very good. The salad was fresh and packed with all one would expect to have. Take cash as they do not accept credit cards. An unexpected treat was a can of Spindirft Seltzer with cucumber. Being off season... More

Great variety of quality sandwiches. Usually a line but it moves quickly. About the only place to sit down and eat is on benches in the square outside of the restaurant.

Thick slice of a big loaf of banana bread with a crunchy topping was the best I have ever eaten. On straight wharf near ferry and shops.

Great spot to grab a coffee and muffin when you get off of the ferry in the morning. Lattes were very well made and tasty. Muffin choices were creative, fresh and tasty. Kids loved the "doughnut muffin". Sandwich options looked good to, but didn't try them on this visit. Cash only, but they have an ATM inside the door.
