on arriving in Nantucket right off the ferry, it was raining we entered the first bar on main street. general ambience and appearance of a typical bar with bar food menu but I have to say I was taken by surprise.

Ate there for lunch and the food was just okay. Mediocre bar food. There are so many better places to eat on Nantucket -- Keep walking if you are just eating. Bar scene is great at night.

I ordered a steak MR and it came out WD. My girlfriend ordered a burger Med and it came out well done . I expected more seeing as the restaurant was in a great location and great atmosphere.

While working on the Island, we were looking for a place for a late lunch. This place is awesome. Guitar player was real good and so was the food. We plan to stop here next time we're out on the island in sept.

We stopped in to listen to the acoustic guitarist Sean Lee. He is so talented and played fun music. We sat at the bar and had great interaction with the bartenders. They were entertaining and super attentive.

Stopped by for some drinks and an early lunch. Barkeep were friendly, food was excellent (try the lamb burger sliders) and drinks were good. Reasonably priced for Nantucket!

Stopped here for lunch. Service was excellent and food was very good. I had the kale salad and my husband had the hangover burger. We also tried the blue fish pate which was also very good. Also didn't have to wait for a table at 1pm which was a bonus.

After waiting for over ten minutes at our table (with two squirmy kids) we were finally able to flag a server who told us she couldn't help us but would send someone over. After another ten minutes there was no server in sight, and for the first time in our lives we walked out. Our experience was really unfortunate as... More

Eight of us had lunch here-great service. The food was interesting and varied-special of the day was lobster chunks on small toasts. Fish tacos were great. they accomodated our gluten-free friends.

Thank Sailordog
