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

We went here because it was convenient to where we were staying. First thought was that the decor is very utilitarian - more hospital cafeteria than family restaurant - tiled floor, bare walls, institutional ceiling. Oddly, given that first impression, the table beside us had several bescrubbed doctor-type men at it! Started off with some nice warm bread and butter.... More

Great food. We were visiting from the Charlotte area for birthday trip for my teen daughter. Food was incredible. Best hamburger I have ever had. My kids had Macaroni and cheese (homemade) and Ravioli's which were good. Tuesday night (which it happened to be) has free cake with $10 entrée. We had a chocolate strawberry cake and vanilla blueberry cake... More

We eat here about every other month when we travel to Chapel Hill. We eat as a group with others and the restaurant has always made special accommodations for us. The food is quite good with a wide variety.

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
