Great dinner...first time there after coming down here for over 40 years

Loved everything - decor, demeanor of the staff, apps, wine selection and all of our meals. We had a variety of meals - rockfish, pasta with scallops and shrimp, crab cakes, steak salad, ahi tuna appetizer and scallop appetizer. It was all delicious. Enjoyed the $19 dinner specials.

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

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

The menu has it all. From sandwiches to expensive entrees. Also 19 dollar entrees a few days a week. Awesome service too. A great building too. Loved the food. 3 different sandwiches were great and the shrimp sausage app was excellent.

we were warmly greeted on arrival and were impressed with special offering apps and main courses in the off season. my wife's crab cake and my rib of pork were cooked to- perfection and served with sides that were not an after thought. The house cab and chardonnay were above average.

My husband and I visited Nantucket's for a special occasion on a Saturday night. It was busy. We were seated right away but then a manager had to come take our drink order and the server took a while to get to us. The speciality drinks were fabulous and the food was very good with an excellent presentation. However, the... More

Nice place to eat. Atmosphere is a little off and weird for my liking. It's like stepping back into the past when you walk in here very old worldy vibe. Really good waiters/waitresses and decent food. A little expensive for what it is but it's ok. Portions are on the small side so savour every bite and chew well so... More

I prefer the bar side because it feels like an elegant pub and there are no children .. but the menu is the same in... More

We ate in dining room, attached bar area which was full as well. Friendly staff and great service. If you like chowders, their seafood chowder is a must. It actual has chucks of seafood, unlike many chowders. Nice balance between steaks, pasta , and seafood. Sides were fresh, warm, and not over done. A bit pricey, but the meal and... More
