We loved our dining experience at Nantucket's! Reserved our table and glad we did as the place was packed. Our table consisted of 3 adults and 2 kids, ages 12 and 7. I ordered the Rockfish and it was perfect seasoned and prepared. Another of our party order the lobster mac and cheese. She loved it and had enough to... More

The service was very good, the food was average and the prices seemed high! Dining room needs a remodel job!

Great menu and service. Can get crowded, so you may have to wait a while. It can get somewhat noisy if there's a large group in your dining room. Definitely worth giving them a try.

We went to celebrate a birthday. They have early bird specials. The bread that they serve for an appetizer is good and crusty. Ours could have been hotter in temperature. I had the pasta with shrimp and scallops with a pesto white wine sauce with veggies. The dish was excellent. Could have had a few more shrimp with the dish,... More

We have been to Nantuckets multiple times...with large groups, as a couple, and even had carry out...and have been pleased with each experience. This time was just as a couple. They do have limited parking and as we weren't having any luck with it this evening, the Nantucket shuttle came along. It is a super modern large golf cart that... More

It was a bit of a drive up from Ocean City (20-30 min) but we found it worthwhile. Seems much better than what we saw other than that. Fresh seafood and good wine and beer options. Professional staff and nice atmosphere. Look out for special deals - they differ by the day and offer great value

This place has it all, atmosphere, kid-friendly dining room, great taproom atmosphere.. My favorite Qualhog is a must! I love Sirloin Steak salad and daily catch is incredible. Have never had a bad meal in 20 years..

This is the second time I've been to Natuckets. The food was just as good as the first time. Everyone in our party raved about their dinners. We loved the grilled salmon with artichokes, capers, etc., the garlic mashed potatoes, the mussels, the prime rib .. just delicious. It is on the pricey side, but this is one place I... More

We are foodies and are so glad we found Nantuckets. The quahog chowder is a must have. The Bouillabaisse was delicious with perfectly cooked shrimp scallops fish clams and enormous mussels. Broth heavenly. Ahi tuna was great. Jessica was informative and attentive. A great way to end our week away. Nantuckets will be a must on our next trip to... More
