I recommend sitting in the bar area for a relaxed environment with a little more upbeat feel. Delicious appetizers and main courses with good service. You can not go wrong with any of your food choices.

We went to Nantucket's for dinner Friday night. We made reservations for 5 @ 6pm and the table was ready for us when we arrived a little before 6pm. I started off the evening with a Manhattan. It was perfectly made. My sisters had the Pink Cosmos, which they all enjoyed. I had the Cream of Crab soup and the... More

We have visited Nantuckets Taproom (Bar area) during both the months of May and September at least once a week, most times, twice a week. We thoroughly enjoy both the relaxed atmosphere and fabulous food and service. Beginning with the BarTenders--Dave, Dulaney, and Brian--who anticipate every need accompanied by the outstanding food. On most occasions we opt for the Scallops... More

We have been to this place numerous times. We really enjoy the bar area and the food was outstanding on either the restaurant or bar side

Three adult family members present, I'd take only adults to this restaurant. Anyway not my first visit and everyone exceedingly happy with the menus and what was selected. Always crowded when visiting. Last on Saturday night out of season. Limited nearby parking.

Nantuckets is a very popular restaurant on the eastern shore of Delaware. We dined there recently and had a memorable meal. The Caprese salad was beautifully presented with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil with olive oil & Balsamic vinegar. My husband had the largest PEI mussels we'd ever seen and they were big, fat & succulent. The dinner rolls that... More

I took a new client to Nantuckets and had a great experience. Teri was very accommodating with me changing my reservation a few times. The food was excellent. I had the bouillabaisse and it was delicious. The scallops were also very good. This place is a jewel in Fenwick. I forgot our servers name but he was very good and... More

Nantuckets was once one of our favorite restaurants at the beach. It is an expensive restaurant but their off-season specials of $19 entrees on Thursdays were always a great deal. Unfortunately, the last time we dined there we actually had to argue with the hostess about a table location when the restaurant was essentially empty - not sure what her... More

Decided to try by leap of faith as we found ourselves stuck in the little town while a Bikers Convention was taken place and took over the some-what charming little town. My first description of the place is nice in the outside and nice in the inside. However it was evident that this was the place where locals go to... More

After a couple of rather ordinary beach dinners elsewhere, Nantuckets was a real pleasure. Very friendly staff - our waitress was terrific - and the food was the best we've ever eaten at the beach. Halibut and crab special; roasted "prime rib" of pork - Yum! Outstanding rolls that tasted house-made. Anywhere else, the cobbler desert would have been a... More
