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.

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 travel extensively and I entertain clients, so I eat in some of the best restaurants all over the world. Nantuckets in Fenwick Island, Delaware makes the cut in my top 10 in the US. 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

A very nice place with great food but be prepared as it is rather expensive. There are some specials at times if you search for them.

My family spent a wonderful evening at Nantucket. We ate in the bar area and started with appetizers. The clams, scallops and oysters were delicious. Our entrees ranged from steak to duck to seafood and all were very good. The wait staff was attentive and offered recommendations when asked. We will definitely visit Nantucket again.

I have eaten at Nantucket's several times in the dining room and have also enjoyed the food and the service. Tonight I decided to try their happy hour at the bar, since I have seen great reviews. Well let me say, it was an experience which may just make me avoid this restaurant for some time. My husband and I... More
