It was 7:00 pm and we were looking for something decent and close by. The food was good. They had a full bar. Tuesdays & Saturdays had a special that gave you a complimentary piece of cake with any entree over $10. The Strawberry shortcake was delicious, as was the Lemon Cake, & Tiramisu. Clean, family friendly, American Cuisine.

We were staying at the Hampton Inn and the front desk clerk recommended Nantucket's when I asked for a close cafe or luncheon spot to the hotel. It is a 1 minute drive from the hotel, but because of the busy highway you have to cross, walking would be dangerous. We were there at noon on a Sunday and it... More

Looked across the street from the Hampton Inn and noticed tables set up for outside dining, they presented a bright colored cluster that said come on in. We did. The menu offered various items. The blacken salmon was enjoyed by my daughter who said it tasted great. We enjoyed our meals in a not so quiet kid area. However the... More

The Nantucket Cafe was directly across the highway from our hotel, the Hampton, which was very convenient. The menu included a number of seafood options. I ordered a half portion of the scallop kabobs, which were excellent, served with rice and fresh grilled vegetables. My dinner partners had the blackened salmon salad, which was good, and the stuffed flounder, which... More

Nantucket is hands down my favorite place to go for cake. The strawberry shortcake is the best you will find anywhere! Unfortunately, they were sold out on my visit today, but the chocolate bliss and cookies and cream cake was tasty too. I enjoyed the half order of chicken kabobs with rice and veggies. My son had the ribeye sandwich... More

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER. Service was slow but the waitress was obviously busy (had tables inside and outside). She got our drinks...eventually. She very obviously forgot to ring in a burger for our friend. The worst part was, NOBODY CARED. The server ran away and said nothing to us. When we spoke to the manager he cared less than the server.... More

Was going for dinner with a friend which was at one of the hotels close by and decided to try this place. At first we did not expect much but once we got inside and saw the crowd and started paying attention to what they were eating we understood what this place is all about. Great seafood, well served plates,... More

This restaurant is known in the area for a relaxed atmosphere and great cake. Everyone we asked said we needed to go here to get the cake. A "can't miss" they said. We went, and they were right! They have daily specials and a variety of entrees to choose from on the menu. My friend had the steak and I... More
