A very nice place with great food but be prepared as it is rather expensive. There are some specials at times if you search for them.

My family spent a wonderful evening at Nantucket. We ate in the bar area and started with appetizers. The clams, scallops and oysters were delicious. Our entrees ranged from steak to duck to seafood and all were very good. The wait staff was attentive and offered recommendations when asked. We will definitely visit Nantucket again.

I have eaten at Nantucket's several times in the dining room and have also enjoyed the food and the service. Tonight I decided to try their happy hour at the bar, since I have seen great reviews. Well let me say, it was an experience which may just make me avoid this restaurant for some time. My husband and I... More

Nantuckets is superb food We always go into the bar since it's less formal but the same menu. Bartenders are always friendly and food is top notch. Shrimp & grits are excellent. Seafood is always tremendous too. Never had a less than fantastic meal here. Keep up the great work!

The Nantucket is a very nice restaurant. It is really reminded me of a New England Inn. This is a classy restaurant set up with several small rooms and many tables for 2 and larger. The wait staff were very pleasant and really knew the menu well. The meal was excellent. Our meal came to just over $100 for two... More

With Fresco's closed in OC and Hobbit closed for the season, we have a new favorite. First of all, Robb is the best waiter anywhere. I have had him just about every time I was there. He orchestrates the meal from beginning to end. Always takes the app order and then checks back for dinner. Let's you linger and really... More

A great place to visit! very friendly. They know what they're doing here. Not a typical beach restaurant. True professionals. Great food, very reasonable wine list. Well appointed and cared for. Good value in the taproom.

We enjoyed our dinner quite a bit, but there were a a couple things that made the experience less than that of a five-star review. Our waiter was personable and kind, with an old-school persona that works in a place like this. However, he seemed not to notice us when we tried to get his attention at a couple of... More

My husband and I make eating at Nantucket's a priority when we go to the beach. Last weekend, we enjoyed another delicious dinner there. They seated us in the "couple's room" which only has tables for two. It's nice there because we know that we won't be seated next to a large group. The service was excellent. We had prime... More
