During a four-night stay in Chapel Hill in August, my husband and I ate here three times. Excellent entrees and side dishes and festive panoply of cakes for dessert! Be sure to check out the specials on various nights.

I've passed this place for years and finally decided to stop for a late supper last night. The weather was amazing, so we were hoping to dine outside, but outside options were only booths; and being unadjustable, booths are usually uncomfortable. Surprisingly, these were great... Plenty of room and a good angle for full-figure diners. I had a bacon cheeseburger... More

Went for lunch with co-workers. We all ordered different things. Everyone was happy with their selections. I ordered the New England fish sandwich (lightly breaded cod) and sweet potato fries. Bonus I wasn't expected was tasty Cole slaw. Good size portion, in the sense I am quite full. Too full to try the cakes...Which look delicious. One thing to point... More

If you LOVE sweets, you will absolutely love the delicious cakes at Nantucket! Check out the samples when you walk in and you decide...not and easy decision because everything is amazing!! But, the Coconut and the Lemon Cakes are my favorite. Slices are huge and prices are reasonable too. Enjoy!

The restaurant is convenient to highway and not far from Raleigh/Cary. It's casual, fairly big, with a bar. I ordered tuna melt, fries and glass of wine and was delighted! All were very good! Staff friendly and cozy feel to this restaurant. Outside dining as well.

My wife & I stopped by the Nantucket Cafe & Grill for a late afternoon lunch after surviving a cloudburst that flooded the roadways leading to this neighborhood. She ordered the lobster bisque, which she enjoyed. I had fried shrimp, which were good. This is a pleasant, attractive restaurant that offers good specials and very good service.

Three of us when to Nantucket Grill today for a late lunch / early dinner. As we were there in the middle of the afternoon, the place was not crowded. I have been there before when it was packed. With the quiet atmosphere, we were able to have a nice conversation. Our server was Brittany and she was great. Very... More

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
