Admittedly, we did not enjoy a full meal. We went in for a drink and a handful of apps. I was a first timer, walked right by Nantuckets for years on end. So glad that we finally stopped. For starters, Alsace on the menu, by...More

We took our family for dinner. All of our dishes, filets, pasta, lamb, salmon, were excellent! Our waiter was well trained and matched service expected for a fine dining restaurant. Definitely make this a place to go to dinner while at the beach.

Been going to Nantucket for 25 years. Tonight was the worst food and service in our last 100 visits. Told different chef but not up to standards.

A longstanding and popular staple in Fenwick Island. We found the crab dip, lobster salad, duck in cherry sauce, halibut with cajun accents were all flavorful and enjoyable, and at reasonable high-season beach prices ($30/entree, about $15 for salads and appetizers). Our waitress was excellent...More
