“Great drinks, fun piano bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We didn't eat here, just stopped by after a disappointing meal at Summer House in 'Sconset. Club Car saved the day with a busy but fun piano bar and a waitress who was so on the spot that it was fun to watch her managing to get drinks quickly to all the patrons. The doorman was also incredibly polite, and also made sure the room wasn't completely overcrowded.

“Great Lobster Rolls!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Really loved sitting at the bar and having a late lunch of lobster rolls, fried softshell crab, Napoleon Salad along with wine. Great bartenders, friendly and fun place! Great location. Can't wait to go back!

“The Best Nantucket has to offer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

My wife and I recently spent a week in Nantucket and looked forward visiting the restaurants. The hospitality at the Club Car was unmatched. From the owner Joe, the floor manager Rich and all of the service staff, they were engaged with us and all of the guests at dinner. They were never hoovering but always available, perfectly orchestrated. It was by far the best dining experience on the island. The roasted fig desert with goat cheese ice cream and reduced port wine syrup is something I will never forget and always desire.

“Good choice for a Special Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

With lots of restaurants to choose from on Nantucket, we decided to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary at the Club Car. One of the few restaurants that we hadn't experienced on Island we definitely needed a reservation even for a Tuesday evening in July. We weren't disappointed; fabulous service from start to finish and the food was phenominal. We started with soup, the lobster bisque and a cold melon soup both very filling and extremely tasty. Pleased we didn't over order with a second appettizer or salad though as we thoroughly enjoyed our spearate main courses of the lamb and sea scallops. $200+ for two with a bottle of wine and split of champagne to begin the celebration.

“Local hangout and after dinner spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

The club car is a small refurbished train car with a bar a few tables and a piano in the back. It's crowded every night, as it's a local go-to spot for an after dinner drink and a piano sign along. If you're looking to meet the locals, stop in the club car.
