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

When traveling for work, I often find myself searching for something off the beaten path for food options. There is only so much you can do with chain places. Nantucket has a great and varied dinner menu, and the ability to purchase whole cakes from the bakery (which I had to do!)

Needing a work night dinner and being tired we dashed in here to eat on a lovely evening last week. Getting past the baked goods case took stamina and endurance! We were seated outside on the parking lot side patio with two other tables. Service was fair (Salt please....Salt...OK I can see it inside on a table I can go... 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
