Consistently a great place to eat.

We eat there often or have take away food. I love their field of greens salad and have never had a bad meal there ever. We have taken many friends there and they always rave about it and want to come back again.

I love this place. I recommend their soups. Filled with seafood and very well seasoned. The salmon salad is a meal within itself. A huge plate and nice serving of salmon. The kabobs of shrimp and beef tenderloins are delicious. Great bar servers Dave and Delaney.

One of my favorite places to eat. We always pick the pub side to eat. Staff is always cheerful and fun. Food is perfect. Steaks, seafood and salads.

We've been about 5 times now and not once have we not enjoyed our meals here. My husband loves their bouillabasse and I find it hard not to always order the lobster shepherd's pie. Recently I ordered the crab cakes for a change and they were divine, even in January. My husband ordered the stuffed rockfish. His was very good... More

Friends told us about Nantuckets when we first started coming to Delaware beaches. That was almost 20 years ago and we never miss an opportunity when we are here. We usually go to the tavern and love their quahog chowder, hamburgers, large wine selection and beer selections. All for 20%off if you arrive before 7! The dining room has good... More

I was sat in the dinning room for what I thought was going to be a nice quiet dinner out, boy was I wrong. We were sat next to a group of people who were loud and playing some kind of games. If I wanted to be around noise I would have gone to the bar. Our check was over... More

This beautiful coastal restaurant draws you in when you drive by. Go in..... I went to the Tap Room side. Service was impeccable. Dulaney was attentive and guided me through choices. Got the cod special. Amazing. Got the creme Brule. The real deal.... so good. This is a must stop to my 100,000 readers.

During the off season the have 19 dollar specials Sunday through Thursday on all entrees.The bar is separate and was more lively. Definitely would return for a more upscale dinning... More

This is the best place to eat near/in Ocean City if you are looking for fine dining with great food and atmosphere. We will go back there when we visit Ocean City again. Prices were no higher than other Ocean City restaurants which don't compare to this restaurant's quality. The 3 course dinner was too much food for us, so... More
