“Good food, with a new name”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch there (new name for bar, Nix's). Really interesting and fun bar food. Watched the World Cup over lunch. Had a nice time. Service was a bit slow, but good food.

“Pub Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

This restaurant is charming and quaint. The food is average pub food. I expected more-especially in downtown Nantucket. Prices were high.

“Just not for Nantucket!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

We gave it a shot... Our entire experience was unpleasant! From dried food on the flatware, greasy glasses, the urine stench in the hall area leading to the restrooms and then the unappetizing food! This place is a wreck and it's even gross at the entry with butts debris. There are much better place to eat in season & off season! Beware!

“Lunch durning off season....THANK YOU SEA DOG!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

I have enjoyed this place for Dinner, late night drinks, great Live music & now, lunch.

I was very pleased to find they serve lunch in the off season, often, a hard thing to find in the winter. I was with a good size group and everything we ordered was great.
The flatbreads, salads & burgers were all delicious! The thing I can't wait to have again is the sweet potato fries with FLUFF, Yes, fluff! Reminded me of Thanksgiving sweet potato pie with marshmallow topping. So different and yummy! If you want a fun night out with great food, this place is perfect! The food is always good & portion sizes are huge.

The Bar service is great too!
I have always been served quickly and with a smile, most recently by Kristy & Cici, thank you!

The manager, Jimmy, is another great part of Sea Dog. He is always Very welcoming and fun!
He and his whole crew are a huge part of the Sea Dog appeal.
Go in for a drink, you will want to stay all night!

“Perfect spot for a group in off-season”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

We were on Nantucket with our child's swim team for a meet. One of the parents in the group arranged for our large party (about 40 in total) to enjoy a dinner together. The kids/teens sat together while the parents enjoyed each others company at adjacent tables. The manager was great! He and his staff handled all of our requests, kept everyone happy and ensured our dinner was thoroughly enjoyable. The food was very good, tasty and fresh and served promptly. They kept our glasses full and were extremely helpful without being intrusive. I would highly recommend the Sea Dog Pub for a family-friendly spot that can meet special requests and keep everyone in your group happy and well-fed! Thanks for a great night! We'll be back next year!
