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

Have been here a few times and always enjoyed it. Last time the server acted like he was doing us a big favor. Don't need the attitude when relaxing at the beach.

The food is amazing! The staff is wonderful. Have NEVER EVER had a bad experience. Always delicious. The owner Janet is amazing w decorating, the ambiance is quite special. Dont leave without having a bowl of their famous Chowder. The blue cheese encrusted filet is by far my favorite dinner!!! Enjoy, you wont be disappointed.

Three of us enjoyed seafood dinners at Nantuckets. The decor is charming - several small rooms a little over-crowded with small round tables with candles and flowers. Our waitress, jessica, made excellent recommendations of seafood dinners with off-season prices. I-The restaurant was full, a bit noisy but everything was cooked to perfection and the drinks are generous. We'll do it... More

Great food and service. We have never had a bad meal. $19.00 off season specials are the best. The special is the same item that is on the regular menu. Terry is the best. Warm friendy service.

Food was delicious. Parking is not easily available. The bar looked like the place to be with high stool tables, candlelight, and tvs. Crab cakes were the best I've had lately and Tile fish was pretty good too.

We were given a gift card to this restaurant. We ate there on the Saturday night between Christmas and New Year's. Our reservation was for 6:30, which I thought was early. When we got there, the restaurant was packed. We later found out this was due to happy hour. By the time we left, the place was empty. We were... More

I visit the area often during the off season and Nantucket was recommended. It was very busy partly due to the Sunday special pricing of $19 for any dinner entrée including an 8 oz. filet mignon. There are several rooms and each one if different. The largest dining room is somewhat dark and it was hard to make conversation as... More

I live near this restaurant and many more restaurants. Hands down this is the best in Fenwick Island. I had rack of lamb last night and it was wonderful.. The surrounding are also great.. I like to eat in the bar. Every time I go here I see something new on the the wall. They don't have any bad entrees.... More

We've been trying to make our way to Nantucket's in Fenwick for several summers, but this was our first opportunity. Just by luck, we were there early (4:30) on a hot hot September day and couldn't get in b/c kids (13yos) were not permitted in the cool, dark lounge. What a disappointment under those circumstances. By 5:15 we had seen... More
