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

The four of us are new to a Fenwick Island, so chose this restaurant totally based on the reviews we read. As we sat eating our dinner, we kept asking ourselves " why were the reviews so stellar?" Food was overpriced, total meal ( without tip and only one drink/ or wine per person) was $200. Not quite the pricing... More

Great place. Very pleasant. Not sure about people with seating problems. Charming interior. Great service. Seafood tower was perfectly fresh and delicious. Soft shells are a specialty and I get them every time. Great homemade desserts.

After 30 years visiting Bethany Beach, we never ventured to Fenwick's Nantucket Restaurant and we're kicking ourselves for waiting so long. We had a FABULOUS dinner in a lovely setting. Our waiter, Todd, was exceptional at guiding our ordering and no one was disappointed. At his recommendation, we tried the chowder and it was all he said it would be...not... More

Sorry Nantuckets but I found your place very cramped and uncomfortable. Really wasn't that keen on my entrée either. My husband rated his okay. I had your soup of the day Southwestern Chicken and I liked it very much, my husband had the seafood chowder which he enjoyed very much as well. Service was good, and employees pleasant.

Went there for an anniversary dinner. The waiter was outstanding, providing great recommendations. I had Monk fish and it was prepared perfectly, but the best part of my meal was the Quahog and Scallop Chowdah. Strongly recommend

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!
