This is a wonderful traditional restaurant for special occasions. We enjoyed it on a Saturday date night. We had reservations and were seated immediately. We had a lovely waitress named Suzi. She gave us great service and the wait staff was very efficient. We enjoyed...drinks from the bar and our meals were delicious. We took dessert to go and they surprised me with a candle and matches in the bag to celebrate my birthday. That was a nice touch.More

Ate here many years ago and it was a first class dinner. Went back in Sept., 2019 and had the same outstanding experience. Crab cakes rocked and the pumpkin cheesecake was stellar. Great staff and service and the owner stopped by for a nice chat....Only minus? The coffee could have been hotter.More

My friend and I decided to dine out while visiting Ocean Pines. Of course we were nervous about dining out and COVID. It was easy to get a reservation and parking was convenient. Tables were socially distant, facilities were clean, and staff wore masks.They were...very accommodating to my dietary restrictions. I got the rockfish special, which was amazing. I ended with their warm chocolate brownie. More importantly, our waitress Susie was amazing. She was friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and fun. I would definitely dine here again, epseically if I got to has out with Susie.More

Teri was our waitress and she was fantastic. It was our first time here but my husband and I have both been servers so we know of what we speak. She was knowledgeable, personable, and allowed us to eat and drink out our pace; nicely...done. Loved the crispness of the Fenwick 75 cocktail and a non-alcoholic O'Dhouls (suggestion: Heineken Zero is the #1 non-alcoholic beer). From there we shared the Chowdah and the crab bubbly dip... both were delicious. The filet mignon was very good as was the lobster shepherds pie. Only complaint was that it was a deconstructed pie (hubby was looking forward to some flaky pie). Scrumptious pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. Definitely going back and hope to have Teri again; she will steer you right.More

I went to Nantuckets with my wife and son. We had a reservation (my wife had the confirmation on her phone) but the restaurant had messed it up. That would have been alright but the host was extremely rude and condescending. We didn’t like the...way he treated us and left. Ended up having a fantastic meal with great service somewhere else. Will never return to Nantuckets and recommend others avoid it too until something is done with that host.More

Made a reservation for dining outside. Outside dining is on an improvised deck with the furniture that doesn't belong to a restaurant. Tables have no covers on them and the table offered to us was a beach table with beach chairs difficult to sit at...the proper level..I requested inside seating to the manager a tall thin gentleman and stated if they couldn't have an inside table we will go dining somewhere else, to which he responded " Fantastic ". The choice of restaurants in this area is extensive and treatment like this is totally uncalled for. I will not recommend this restaurant for as long as they have a manager with such poor manners. The easiest would've been for him to say that he's sorry they don't have an inside table.More

A fabulous dining experience enhanced by Courtney’s great service. We are vacationing in Ocean City, MD but our two great dining experiences have been in Delaware. This evening, we had a great experience at Twining’s Nantuckets in Fenwick Island. We began with the beet and...arugula salad followed by the oysters with caviar and sour cream. My wife had the lobster sandwich while I had the soft shell crabs (best I have had). Dessert was key lime cheesecake. We sat outside. Courtney was very friendly and knowledgeable as was John, the sommelier. Plus not crazy priced. Please go there!!More

On our first night here, we ate at Nantucket’s and it was soooo good! The crab and corn chowder was delicious, not over powering with the cream, and the corn was roasted. Highly recommend.
