Great Restaurant on the Shore

We could not have asked for a better dinner. The three of us all had a different seafood entree, all were excellent. We will go back soon. We had a wonderful waiter there for our every need.

I had the crab cake platter and my partner had the sirloin salad. They both serte very good. Beware of wet paint. The men's room door was... More

It does not get any better than Nantucket's. Whatever you do order the seafood tower as an appetizer. It is a meal in itself and it is perfect natural seafood. The crab legs are the size of Turkey thighs. I often opt for an appetizer instead of a main entree after my seafood tower. For couples dining, the front porch... More

We decided to try this restaurant again. It is a beach favorite but I am not sure why. We were seated in the back room at a table next to the door where the staff brought the food out. The restaurant wasn't full, but we were very rushed by our waiter. None of our entrees where great. We are seafood... More

This is not typical "beach restaurant. There will be no coupons for this place. The interior is super classy, including live flowers on your table. This is a place were you get great food, classy décor and super service. Not cheap, but, the value that you get for the money you spend is right on. The real issue that we... More

Excellent quality and perfect portions of food. Prepared in a a simple but tasteful and unique way. Wait staff is timely and cordial. During really busy times, Dave helpsfind parking spots for one's car. Great choice for fine dining at the Maryland or Delaware shore. You won't be disappointed.
