I devoured this burger with mouth drooling

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.

When I am in Chapel Hill on business, this is a stopping place. Great menu selection and very good food. I've never had a bad meal and there is something for everyone. Great burgers. Give it a try!

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

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.

We stumbled onto this restaurant after basketball camp. Big menu; lots of choices. Thought it was expensive but we learned desert was included. I large piece of cheesecake. Unexpected treat!

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...
