Although the dining room is perfectly lovely, we chose the bar because we were in the mood to be super casual and the food was just as amazing. Must start with the bluefish pate! Too us it is quintessentially Nantucket. And the homemade "melba toasty" crackers were perfect with it. The taquitos of the day were delectable as well --... More

The dining room is lovely, ambiance great. The service was professional and efficient. My meal was inedible and I should have sent it back, but felt kinda awkward as it was the last night of the season and everything was half price. Btw, still cost us $170 for two. My husband loves salt and even he said it was awful.... More

I know it sounds crazy but get the popcorn appetizer to start! We are still talking about that after several fantastic meals on the island! Restaurant is in a beautiful location; service was friendly and helpful; food was wonderful and innovative without being weird. Great island atmosphere.

The food and service here were amazing. We booked a few months ahead and sat outside. The kids pasta was great, and my son (4 y/o) loved the bluefish pate (as did everyone else). The clam back was excellent and just the right size.

In town for a wedding. On our last night, we decided to eat at one of many highly recommended restaurants in Nantucket. The Straight Wharf was a recommendation by our hotel, 76 Main. We had an early reservation, so we were seated facing the beautiful bay right before sunset. The menu is seasonal and though its small, we enjoyed our... More

We went here last night and it was incredible. From the view of the bay to the ambiance of the interior to the service to the delectable food. We had the baby carrots, the pumpkin chowder and the mussels. Everything was made perfectly and we could not have been happier. Be warned..the carrot cake isn't a carrot cake..it's crumbs.

Last evening we stopped in around 9pm for a seat at the bar and a quick bite. We could not have been happier with the food and service. Our bartender Charlie was quite accommodating and made great recommendations. We start with an appetizer "special", a pork bun. This was terrific! A soft, steamed, taco shaped bun with pork belly and... More

Great location, nice dining room with happy hard working team. Salads 8/10, Octopus 10/10 Really!, Oysters perfect, and for sure don't miss the Galette…maybe order two as they are the best we've every had. Sommelier very cool and willing to work hard to make you happy. We will be back next year.

We always try new places in Nantucket...except for Straight Wharf - we just go there every time! The simple green salad is the BEST salad I've ever had!! We always have amazing food and outstanding service plus the view from the deck is amazing. Treat yourself and go.
