Great experience

I was in Chapel Hill for a conference which ended earlier in the day. I was spending the night and not at all familiar with the area when I stumbled upon the Nantucket Grille. So glad that i did. It was a Saturday night and the place was packed so I sat at the bar. Everyone was very friendly... read more

Being the Mother's Day weekend we knew this restaurant would be busy so we played it safe and made reservations in advance, a must for graduation weekend! Being a Saturday night it was Prime Rib Night always a treat since their Prime Rib is about the best I've had in the area. The night started with the fire alarm going... More

Had lunch there today (04/24/2015). The four of us had a Cesar salad, bacon hamburger, hot roast beef dipping sandwich, a cup of New England clam chowder, a lobster roll sandwich, cheese loaded covered french fries, and 4 drinks for a total of $72.00. All was enjoyable but our order was incorrect and I had to go tell them for... More

This is a great place for american fare. I had a 1/2 lb burger, which I was craving for days. This burger did not disappoint. Cheese, onions, lettuce, and a pickle in the middle of the bun....loved it.

We drove up from SC for a friends birthday party. There were 17 adults at the party. We sampled lots of different foods from the menu. All of the appetizers, dinners and deserts were outstanding. Our waitresses did an out standing job of keeping up the the food and drinks.

Had a great experience at this place! Lobster Roll was fresh and delicious and with the apple coleslaw was a nice and different compliment! The other diner had the French Dip with the onion rings! Really great open faced sandwich and the onion rings did NOT disappoint! Fresh and homemade. But don't fill up...make sure you save room for dessert!... More

Whenever we are in the Chapel Hill/Durham NC area Nantucket Cafe & Grill is always a stop we make. They have food for any mood you are in from burgers to prime rib. Everything we have ever ordered is solid! Do not pass up on the fabulous cakes The Carrot Cake is to die for. On Tuesday's cake is free.

Stopped in one evening as we were new to the neighborhood and looking for a casual weekday dinner place. While the food was fine, the value was not. We felt the prices were higher than other local choices of the same caliber. It's been over a year and we've never found a desire to stop in again.
