This is a great place to eat. For what you get, the prices are very reasonable and it's just a great place to eat fresh seafood. Highly recommended.

I don't know what else to say... My and my girlfriend went here just on a whim since we wanted to try something outside of the main town and didn't mind a little walking. We are very glad we took this trip. All I got was the fried cod sandwich, and she got the lobster salad roll, but they were... More

Find your clambake here! Perfectly cooked lobster, steamers, and mussels with corn on the cob. Mediocre chowder and red potatoes thrown in. We rode our bikes out to Sayles thinking we'd get some great seafood at a nondescript fish market. The short bike ride from downtown Nantucket takes you slightly off the beaten path to Sayles storefront. The pleasant surprise... More

This seafood is the best...and where the locals go....we ate dinner there three times and one lunch over a week long vacation! You can eat there, there's a few tables set outside-plastic forks and very low key, great for kids to be and the family can just be relaxed. Or, better yet, do the takeout. Which is what it's more...

We chose to get take out at Sayle's based upon their ratings here on Trip Advisor. We ordered fried clam strips, fried calamari, clam chowder and chicken fingers. Unfortunately, the best thing was the chicken fingers. The calamari looked like onion rings- not freshly made. The chowder was ok, not the best. The clam strips were fair. It was pretty... More

It was mediocre. Ask for special offers. Pricing is sneaky. As we were gathering our lobsters, the couple ahead if us mentioned a 8.95 special for lobsters. When we returned to the counter the lady said, no you have to buy 3 lb lobsters !! We bought 3, 2lb lobsters for 13.95 lb and could have bought 3, 3lb lobsters... More

Food is awesome, love the fried fish sandwich! Great take out spot. Service is just average, when I asked about how long my order would be, the woman behind the counter just shrugged and said "I don't know, ready when it's ready. Don't go far cuz I don't want to go looking for you" But it's August and they have... More

We had the lobster clambake. Pick up was easy, lobster/clams/mussels were all very good, rest of package was ok. Good vacation meal, as nobody had to cook and clean up was easy.

It is what it is. A fish shop where you can buy a full lobstah dinner and either eat it there or take it home. And a very good value. If you eat it there, you are simply buying your dinner at the counter, and grabbing a simple table outside. My lobster was great. The more "refined" meals (stuffed sole,... More
