When you just need a sandwich, this is the place to be

This is a basic sandwich shop. There are a few tables inside and some benches outside. Most of the people that stop here are either going to the ferry or just arriving from the ferry.

We picked up our lunch here before heading down to the beach for a picnic. Delicious! Would come back here again!

Thaksgiving on a roll! You cant beat this sandwhich anywhere. Every trip that I have made to Nantucket has included multiple stops at Provisions. And I would always get a sandwhich to go for the ferry boat ride back.

We went to this deli twice for sandwiches and both times enjoyed our lunches. With dining so expensive on the island, this is a great option for a hearty mid-day meal.

We stumbled upon this sandwich shop late morning after getting off the ferry on Labor Day. A little crowded, but evey person in our party, children and adults, loved their sandwich. Grilled cheese, egg salad, but especially the Thanksgiving turkey sandwich and the Italian. The portugese bread made the sandwiches extra special and we each felt like the cat who... More

Great place to grab a quick bite before or after ferry ride. Nice variety, and fast service. Located right by high speed ferry.

Absolutely wonderful tasting turkey sandwiches - tastes like thanksgiving between two slices of delicious Portuguese bread!! Not a lot of seating room, so it's definitely more ideal if you're wanting to continue strolling along the wharf to take in the sights.

Beware Nantucket is expensive: this restaurant was recommended for a reasonably priced place with healthy sandwiches. Excellent huge sandwiches for about $10 each. The sandwiches come on a variety of homemade and fresh bread. Friendly staff and very crowded. Small area of indoor seating or better outside seating by the water or in the courtyard. I would recommend if you... More

We stopped at this place for coffee and a sandwich when arriving at Nantucket for a day trip. It's actually just off the ferry port. I was expecting more of a "touristy" place, but I actually saw a lot of people that looked like frequent customers. Coffee not that good, but the sandwich was delicious.
