We dined with another couple on a Saturday night. At first, the restaurant was not so busy but then picked up as the evening went on. We had great service. We had amazing meals. The gnocchi with lobster sauce and truffles was to die for. My husband and I split a halibut and it was amazing. I cannot say anything... More

Enjoyed everything! Dinner was delicious - from the non-alcoholic drink to the peach semi-freddo dessert, I loved every bite. Many ingredients are sourced on the island so you know they are fresh. Dining companion had the scallops and said they were fabulous. Chicken dish was a deconstructed Greek salad - every bite had a great mix of flavors. Would definitely... More

Creative dishes made with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Be sure to try the crab and corn bisque, the halibut, and/or the tuna. There's a special cocktail made with sparkling rosé, St Germaine, strawberry and mint that is Summer in a glass. And finish with the donuts!!

Had dinner here last night. All declared their meals delicious-Apps included the special tuna tartare, beet salad and corn bisque, while entrees were the soft shell crab, yellowfin tuna and chicken. The donut for dessert was to die for and the panna cota was unique and wonderful. Yes the prices are high-everything is on Nantucket, wines by the glass are... More

A very pleasant meal at the center of town - two short blocks from the Ferry terminal. Their cocktails are well thought out and tasty. The food was also well planned. We ate outside and enjoyed the Nantucket weather.

Outstanding oysters served with a bloody marry mignonette sauce to start, delicious salad with feta and pistachios sourced from a local farm, followed by an outstanding salmon main dish and tuna main dish. The service on the other hand was so deplorable that I will never return. How can you serve such mouth watering food prepared by a phenomenal chef... More

Hello Krlieb, Words can not accurately describe how sorry I am about your recent dinning experience at dune. I am speechless, clearly there was a complete breakdown in our table service that night on every level. We try very hard to deliver quality service every table every night, thru continual training and daily reviews of service. I would also like... More

My husband and I were recommended to go to Dune through our B&B at Seven Sea Street Inn. We could not be more pleased with the phenomenal dinner or the exceptional service that our server, Olga, provided. It was a wonderful dining experience!

Dune salad, risotto, and Grecian chicken were to die for! A very comfortable, eclectic and refined American restaurant. Will certainly return on our next visit to ACK.

This was by far the best meal on the island. I had halibut that was one of the best I have ever had. We started with beets which were fabulous. My husband had sirloin which he loved and he is very critical and doesn't love sirloin! A must on Nantucket!

This was our favorite restaurant, and that is among very wonderful choices. The food was beautifully presented, the flavors enticing without being overstated, and the portions were generous.
