Met on Main is at the location of the old Even Keel. Lovely redo of the interior. Food is very good, but can be inconsistnt, thats why they are a "3", nit 4. Friendly waitstaff. try the stuffed artichoke.

“Great Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Met on Main is a wonderful place. The location is perfect right on downtown Nantucket: the service was friendly and attentive: the atmosphere is casual but authentic; the food at least at lunch was delicious. We had turkey chili which was quite good but the mussels with fennel was outstanding.

“Overpriced, but good in general”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

In my opinion, this is an overpriced restaurant; you can get the same, or more value for less money. However, it is kinda justified since it is on the Main Street. The staff and service are more than ok, and the garden is absolutely fabulous!

“Better than expected!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Was a little worried this would be a chain type restaurant, but was very happy to see the unique decor inside the restaurant and the food was great. Service was very good. Atmosphere was good for couples or even families (saw lots of families) but still an upscale feel. Will definitely go back!

“Pleasant Evening Out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Two couples, all four of us long-time Nantucket homeowners, stopped by Met on Main for dinner. We were delighted to find the restaurant running a Monday night special on burgers. We each ordered a burger, which we found to be well presented and cooked to perfection, and also delicious! We four shared one order of fries and one order of onion strings, which were tasty and perfectly done. We added a nice bottle of French wine; and had a great evening out. We have enjoyed this spot on Main Street over the years, and are happy to say that this new restaurant will remain on our active list of eat-out venues. We look forward to dining outside when the weather allows.
