The 3 cheese omelet was loaded with onions and no cheese! The bacon looked and tasted like microwaveable bacon. The extremely hot restaurant completed the lackluster $52.00 breakfast experience.

The perfect insider restaurant. BYOB, make reservations for the first seating, waiting in line for the second one. DON"T MISS IT! It is so delicious. Farm to table, foodie delight, small, intimate and PERFECTLY cooked fish! We really hope to go back one day and wish we had this restaurant in our town!!!

It was highly recommended place for breakfast, food was definitely good but as places are very difficult to get I was seated at the counter where they cook and in hot weather it's terrible I couldn't eat faster and run out just for a fresh air.

This is my favorite breakfast restaurant in Nantucket. It is close to the center of town and I have recommended it to several friends visiting ...all of which say it was excellent choice

The breakfast was excelente, please try the Pennsylvania Dutch cakes. We went twice during our summer vacation. If you sit outside you can bring your dog. The service was good but is cash only so be prepared.

I go to Black-Eyed Susan's for dinner at least once a summer and it never disappoints. Love sitting at the bar and watching the chef cook. Food is excellent. Go on a cool night because there is NO AC. I had the halibut, which was great. Pasta is always good and so are the salads. Love the bread and Vermont... More

Very affordable breakfast/brunch place on Nantucket. Had delicious Portuguese omelette (with linguica (Portuguese sausage), son had Thai tofu scramble and daughter had perfect pancakes. OJ was good but did not taste fresh squeezed as advertised, coffee was strong and good! I wish they had some fish options on the menu! But I'd go back. Really 4.5 stars.

My family loves the breakfast at BES's, and I enjoy watching the cook masterfully run the griddle. But if it's hot outside, it's really hot inside, especially at the counter near the cooking station. Was no better at dinner one evening, although the food was wonderful. I would love to see this place get air conditioning, but maybe some people... More

First thing off the ferry we walk up the hill to India Street for our much-anticipated annual Nantucket breakfast. I hadn't ordered the Pennsylvania Dutch Pancakes in years so I splurged. I know it sounds weird but the melted Jarlsberg cheese and blueberries make a fantastic combination. I've even tried this at home and it's almost as good. Short stack... More
