I've been here several times. Each time I've enjoyed my meal. However, there is a noticeable odor in the place...kind of musty. I've noticed it each time I've visited, but it seemed very strong today. I bought 3 slices of cake to take home to the family and I noticed that the Red Velvet cake actually had a taste that...

We recently called in an order of 14 lunches, almost all with side dishes and many with special requests. The food was ready promptly, carefully packed in a well-organized way, and with each and every item exactly as requested. And, of course, it was fresh and very tasty, not greasy at all. At pick up, the staff was friendly and... More

Appears to be very popular with the locals based on tags in the lot. Had a short wait, 15 minutes +/-. Service was prompt once seated. Deserts appears to die for based on dinner partners comments. Lobster bisque was excellent!

Been there several times and always have had consistently good food. It is not cheap though. You come in walking past their mile high cakes and they are REALLY good. Go on Tues or Sat and with a meal, I believe over like $13, you get a slice of cake for free. I had the Carolina shrimp- 12, fried shrimp,... More

We love Nantucket Grill. There are actually two of them and most of the cakes etc. look like they are actually made at the one on Fayetteville road just up the street. In fact, that is the one that our family loved to go to because the kids could go outside and play. The cakes/ cupcakes etc. are amazing and... More

This particular Nantucket Cafe & Grill has little competition in its immediate area, which enables it to attract a large clientele. It is a pleasant place, with good servers, but the food is rather ordinary.

I had a wonderful shrimp and scallop skewer and friends had several steak selections. As good as my seafood was....they claimed their steaks were the best they ever tasted. You also get a free dessert on certain nights. Strawberry shortcake was simply amazing.

Having lived in Boston, I miss the pleasures of a real New England style seafood house with fresh scrod, clams, lobster and the like. Nantucket Cafe does an admirable job of bringing New England coastal dining to the South. The seafood was fresh and included whole clams (with the bellies) as their fried clam option, not the sorry imitation found... More
