We've been enjoying this neighborhood gem (Farmington Road location) ever since they opened. They are very good for eat in or take out. It's a very family friendly place with good food choices. I am particularly in love with their buffalo chicken salad tossed with their in-house made blue cheese dressing. Oh my God. I would be distraught if they... More

I've eaten here a number of times, and the food is good. For lunch they take your order and your money before you are seated, so it's not always possible to ponder over the menu if people are waiting in line behind you. My last time there I was in a hurry and quickly ordered the daily special, listed as... More

I've been to this location of Nantucket Cafe and Grill several times, and have enjoyed it consistently. The last time, I had the salmon, which was a bit of a splurge for me, price-wise, but I was glad I got it. Very tasty!

Stop by with one of my sales reps to some desserts to take to some physicians practices. There was somebody at the bar just chatting with somebody else and there was another person behind the counter on the phone. We waited probably 7 to 8 minutes for somebody to wait on us while we checked out the desserts to decide... More

The Pine Nut Salad is probably the best salad I've ever eaten in my life. Amazing homemade soups. Great daily specials as well. I will return again and again.

I had the crab cakes & they were delicious. The mashed potatoes were yummy too! The asparagus was a little tough. Overall, I really enjoyed it!

I had the fish and chips. Fish was tough and lacked flavor, the slaw was bland, the fries were OK. Had to leave the table and ask for malt vinegar. Wife had the lobster roll and said it was fair.

Their food is nothing to write home about but the cake is on point. Huge selection! Huge ("mile high") slices too. On Tues/Sat you get a free piece of cake with purchase of $13 entree. I've also just stopped in to pick up cake...
