Nantucket Grill is one of those nice, busy neighborhood restaurants. We went on a Saturday night (let me re-iterate "busy") with three of us and a 1 year old. Service was excellent. The food was very good (salads, clam chowder, crab cake, sea food pasta, and seafood ravioli), not trying for exceptional. My grandson had his first burger (actually, his... More

Excellent food and service. Free dessert on Saturday nights with purchase of an entree. Good variety of food choices.

My spouse and I live 15 minutes from Nantucket. It''s kinda our neighborhood dining place. Service varies, but is mostly good. The food is always good! The servings are large (take the rest home for lunch). The cakes and pies are sinfully good. No fancy dress requirements. I'd recommend to all.

Although it was packed at 7:00 and we had no reservations, they seated our party of seven quickly. The menu was creative and varied, and the food was presented well and timely. We all enjoyed the meal and our visit. The service was excellent. On the down side was the noise, largely because the tables were tightly together, making conversation... More

I don't know about their dinner service, but as others have mentioned you have to pay first at lunch. It can be a little confusing since you don't place your order at a counter, but rather with a cashier in the middle of the store. Then you get a number to place on your table so the servers can find... More

I had the turkey burger, TURKEY BURGER 9.5 Char-grilled and topped with grilled onions, mushrooms, roasted red peppers and swiss cheese. The portion was more than enough. Everything was fresh and tasty. A decent value, not a great value. Nice atmosphere, not a place I would go sporadically as a change of pace for dining out.

Our lunch today was not good. My husband had the fried shrimp and clams. Couldn't chew the clams. I had quiche which was pre baked and warmed in microwave. They have no service. You order and pay at the register by the entrance then the food is brought to your table. No one checks back to see if you need... More

My wife and I ate here mostly because it was convenient to our hotel. The service was fast and friendly, the food portions were large and tasty. Can't say it's the best food we have had but a very good choice none the less. Oh yeah, we must have came on free cake night because we left with two wonderful... More

Heard about the desserts!! OMG a must! Had strawberry cake, the best ever. Not the heavy, sugary cake. Light and fresh berries. Perfect! Worth every calorie!! Going back for lunch for sure! A slice is enough for 4 people.
