“Stumbled in for lunch and happy we did”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

We were walking around Main St and got hungry. Saw this place was opened for lunch so we went in. Had the most delicious clam chowder and lobster roll. Yum!! My husband and I both had a drink and think the vodka was watered down because neither one of us even got a little buzz from our drink, but the food was delish. Just want to make one comment. There was a red haired bar tender who was in one word a total "beeeeach" to customers . We just sat there and watched her talk so condescending to people that were walking into the crowded lunch section. I said to my waitress that if she would have spoken to us that way when we walked in, I would have walked right out!!! Some people need to remember who is paying their salaries.....it's the customers!! Be respectful!!

“Best Lobster Rolls in New England”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

After traveling the coast of Maine and enjoying lobster rolls, we went to Nantucket and had lunch at one of our favorite dinner restaurants. Club Car now serves lobster rolls and it was absolute heaven to eat. Yes a bit pricey but it was overflowing with lobster and was a most delicious combination of ingredients. I savored every bite, if you love lobster rolls then you MUST have one for lunch at the Club Car. Besides the roll, you get to enjoy the staff and ambience of the restaurant!!

“Great place to have a late night drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Nantucket is basically a very quiet quaint place. This is one of the few places where they actually have some music. This is a cool little place with a guy playing piano. Very cozy in an old train club car. I had drinks with a notable celebrity from Hollywood, but she will remain nameless in respect for her privacy.

“Great lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

So for our second day with kids at camp we tried to find another great lunch spot. Most of the great restaurants in town are closed for lunch, so we stopped in at the Club Car. The restaurant was closed and they have a very limited sandwich menu. So far somewhat uninspiring.

However, we noted that the bar had a good "local" element that day - probably a good sign - so settled at the bar and chatted to the perky and fun bar staff.

In perusing the choice of 5 sandwich options, we asked about the lobster roll. The bartender said "none better on the Island". The guy sitting next to us happened to be a Sous chef for one the best restaurants in town. He was just finishing his and agreed.

Lobster roll it was, then. Washed down with a beautiful bottle of Chablis. And yes, it IS the best lobster roll on the Island.
