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.

Our first experience, a few years ago, was disappointing but recently we returned-with guests- and were very happy with our meals, the service and price of the entrees. Will return again to try the famous desserts.

After a long day driving from Indiana, was looking for something just "close". This place was close to our hotel tucked into a bank building. Cozy and very delicious. Shrimp/scalop ravioli wonderful and the filet cooked to perfection. We will be back!

The service in this place is so great. Very nice, clean and attentive. The steak was average but tasty and the seafood was great..But ending the evening with the hugh piece of cake was heaven...

I have been here a few times in the last few years for dinner and have had some lunches that were catered by them. Nothing was bad. Nothing was great. Pleasant staff.

Three of us went for lunch and enjoyed the outside seating. I prefer to be waited on at the table vs ordering when I first walk in the door but this system seems to work well for them. I would say the food is good but not memorable. The portions are large so none of us left hungry. The staff... More

We have been to Nantucket several times but hadn't been in the past few years. My wife had a craving for their lobster bisque so we decided to go for lunch. She order a bowl of the bisque and a garden salad. I had the French dip and fries. The lobster bisque was nice a creamy with a great sweet... More
