Ate here the first night of vacation and came back the next night. They actually remembered us and made sure we got a table where we wanted to sit even though it was totally wall to wall crowded. The food is fantastic, love love thier scallops! The drinks were very interesting and tasty, especially the spicy margarita! This is the... More

The 4 of us had a really delicious meal at Nantucket on a quiet Sunday evening. The pasta with shrimp and scallops, cod and pork prime rib were all wonderfully prepared and the servings were large enough that no one had any room for dessert after. We didn't realize that the Sunday 'specials' were actually off the regular menu but... More

We have been going to Nantucket's for many years. In the beginning we used to dine in the more upscale restaurant, but the last few years we have preferred the cozy and relaxed bar area known as the Tap Room. (Note: Delaware does not allow children to sit in bars even if it is part of a restaurant, so don't... More

Had dinner over Memorial Day weekend and of course it was jamming which was the only downfall of our dinner. After our server regrouped from a seating mistake with our party of 5 all went well. I am always amazed how the kitchen maintains quality of the food when a restaurant is busy like Nantucket's was that night. Recommend their... More

Another locals recommendation and packed before the season started! The bartender has amazing different drinks. The rockfish special was totally awesome, and we never get dessert but the blueberry betty was worth every calorie.

This is my favorite restaurant in Fenwick. The atmosphere is homey and friendly and the food great. One of the light fares is Ceasar Salad with Grilled Salmon which is grilled perfectly with a delicate caper sauce. I highly recommend. There is a bar area where the locals mingle in the evenings. The dining room is more formal for quieter... More

I have been to numerous wine pairing dinners and I found this one to be exceptional. The night I attended they were showcasing Duckhorn vineyards wine. The dinner that we received was high quality and the presentation of the food was wonderful. I really like the fact that they served full glasses of wine and also re filled your glasses... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before but I wanted to make sure that it receives the accolades it deserves. This is a terrific restaurant with great ambiance and terrific service. Our server Susie always makes our visit most enjoyable. Rob and Terri are also quite excellent and you won't be disappointed with any of them. The salads are just big... More

Nantucket's is a terrific restaurant. They serve excellent food and the service is always perfect, especially Susie although Rob and Terri are also excellent servers. Their bouillabaisse is second to none. The atmosphere is better than most in the resort area. I will continue to dine there whenever I am in the areea.
