This was really a disappointment. They were "out" of oysters so we had some Little Neck Clams. They were good and later someone we ran into said that's the thing to get. So, not a lot of prep necessary, just purchase good clams and open...More

We dined here after a recommendation for someone on a shuttle service. The waitress delivered my lobster without the lobster fork, nutcracker, etc. I got it about 5 minutes after my food was delivered. Portions not particularly hearty. The lobster was good as well as...More

This was my first lobster roll and I thoroughly enjoyed the huge chunks of juicy lobster meat in the salad mixture on a fresh brioche bun, with sides of fries and coleslaw. Started with fried fresh clams appetizer and a crisp cold glass of white...More

This restaurant might be off the well-worn, main street of Nantucket, but is well worth stopping in. If you head in, you will find cold, boozy, creative drinks; GREAT fresh oysters; and excellent main dishes. My linguine with clams was one of the best I've...More

Seafood scampi- good. Baked haddock- good. Whole belly fried clams- the best ever! Live music was very good ~ jazz lite. Wine served in plastic cups? Well yes! The salt shakers were -incredibly- stopped up with caked salt— if you must have salt, better bring...More
