Our hotel sent us. When we were seated with our 7 year old we asked about a child's menu. The server said no but they could do smaller portions which was fine. We had a great meal with a smaller spaghetti and meat ball for our child. When the bill came we were charged for a full priced adult meal.... More

A very disappointing experience for a restaurant with such a prime in-town location. While the food was good (I ordered the swordfish), the service was so incredibly slow and haphazard that half our table left to go shopping while my husband waited another half hour to pay the bill. We wondered if this place is getting ready to shut its... More

Visited with family. Staff mainly Eastern European and generally clueless and untrained. Plates removed whilst other eating and waiters reaching across diners to fill glasses - most annoying. I ordered Linguine with scampi and got spaghetti with frozen shrimp. Questioned the item served and was told "that is what linguine and scampi is in America" (if only I had not... More

So happy this Main Street gem has reopened on July 4, 2016, as an Italian Trattoria. Genuine Italians are servicing the restaurant and the food is scrumptious! The service was very attentive, and we loved it so much we returned for a magically prepared breakfast of lobster Benedict. They so appreciated our revisit, they served us a free glass of... More

I have been eating at Arnos, since it opened (originally). I love their chowders, the specials, super fresh, yummy food. Great combinations of items and menus. Superbly created dishes. NOT CHEAP. Very much worth every penny for fine dining!

18 of us flew in {5 separate airplanes} for the yearly Christmas walk. We all met up at Arnos over the course of 1/2 hr or so. Those of us who arrived a bit later had to wait 20 minutes to have our orders taken. We waited another 30 minutes to have it served. No silverware. No water. No coffee.... More

A group of 18 flew to Nantucket for the December Holiday Stroll and had breakfast at Arno's. We were seated at table without settings. Though our orders were taken promptly most arrived incorrecltly. Food was delivered without silverware. Folks who had arrived slightly earlier were served last and their orders, too, were incorrect. An omelet and OJ was $25. The... More

We came here for lunch. Waited an hour for food. Half of our drinks never came. Dirty glassware. Bad customer service.. Manager told us a lot of people walked out and he was about to walk out! My breakfast plate was 20$. Waited another hour for the check! Worst time spent of the little time we had on the island... More

After walking in and out of quite a few of Nantucket’s Main Street shops, we were happy to come upon Arno’s right on Main Street. There was plenty of seating when we walked in and we were seated right away. Loved the brick décor – and the atmosphere. We started with a cup of Clam Chowder (very good!) and then... More

$50.00 for a cold lobster roll, and a couple of draft beers? OUCH! The service was polite, and the bartender was good enough to get up from his break to pour another beer, but even though the place was nearly empty, I had to go ask them for more beer, they couldn't be bothered to come to me.
