We've spent many a summer here at Jetties. Now there is a great restaurant open the end of the week with a good menu including oysters on the half shell. They have a special price list from 3 to 5.

This beach is my favorite to go to in Nantucket. I love that they have a restaurant right on the beach, very convenient! The food there is good but my favorite part is the live music! Such an amazing setting!
