“Best sandwiches on Nantucket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Provisions offers gourmet sandwiches (try the Italian or spicy egg salad!) from their location on Straight Wharf. The place is often busy so calling in your order for pick up usually saves time and hassle.

“Great sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We were looking for sandwiches to take with us to the beach. This placed proved to be the best! You can get drinks, chips and dessert here too, but the sandwiches are really fantastic. I got the caprese and it rivaled what I'd get at a NYC deli.

“Digging the Turkey Terrific!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

At the suggestion of a local gallery employee, we went to Provisions for their fabled 'Turkey Terrific'. It lived up to its reputation. Sliced turkey with cranberry, mayo and stuffing on the local "portuguese" bread (basically a crusty, white/sourdough). Not too sweet or heavy as you might expect considering the ingredients used. We were hungry and it hit the spot - in fact, my wife couldn't finish hers there was so much. It's a little pricey compared to the mainland, but not for Nantucket. Overall, a hearty recommendation from me!!

“Turkey Terrific!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Among the best sandwiches ever. Worth the wait. Would have rated "excellent" except for the free for all inside. It is difficult to find the line to order amidst all the folks waiting for their amazing delights. Turkey Terrific, Curry Chicken and the Italian all rocked. We took provisions sandwiches to the beach, and I stopped for a Turkey Terrific on the way to the airport for my long trip back to SF. Yum!

“Great sandwiches!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Casual spot to grab a sandwich or salad & beverage. It is usually very crowded, but the line seems to go fast...sometimes confusing, as one line is for baked goods/coffee, the other for sandwiches/salads. We love the Turkey Terrific....as one person said, Thanksgiving between bread. Small dining area...people often sit on the benches outside or take it with them. Great to go for the beach or to grab something for the ferry ride.
