“Scrumptiously Good”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We had one of the best meals ever at Met on Main the other night!. Last year the food was good but this year it is really up a notch. They have redone the clam chowda and all I can say is WOW! A large steamy bowl of chowda arrives with clams piled high. It is hot, the broth is lighter than last year and perfectly seasoned. The fried calamari - all I can say is we fought over it - again it arrived piping hot and the side sauce is a perfectl compliment. On to the main course - their version of Chicken under a brick - I asked for my extra crispy and that it is the way it arrived on a cheesy bed of polenta. The signature cocktails are great, the wine list broad enough so you have a choice of prices and the atmosphere very friendly.

“Great find on Main Street”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

A beautiful place w a beautiful patio! Food was extraordinary! Probably the best I had in Nantucket!
Unexpected in the location!! The best Caesar Salad -- mix of lettuces and a cheese crunch, so good!! Loved the artichoke and the lobster night on Wednesday was a great value and perfectly executed!! Hot donuts for breakfast as well! Worth a stop!!!

“Good sandwiches and burgers”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Went for lunch and also for late night burgers after arriving on the last ferry at 10 pm. Late night burgers were great - 4.99 a burger which is unheard of on Nantucket. Service was good. Been back for lunch 2 x and both times the service was SLOW. Food was good. About $15 for a turkey club sandwich, which is big enough to split. Nice outdoor seating. Nice atmosphere inside the restaurant and it has AC.

“Fantastic pancakes”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Banana, pecan pancakes rocked! Service was friendly and very convenient to shops. Ate breakfast there twice in four days! Decore is really cool and prices were pretty reasonable.

“Only Okay”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Went in for some apps, salad and dessert. The calamari was excellent, but the Greek salad was very disappointing. Although they were very nice about splitting the salad for the two of us, I would not get it again. The lettuce was shredded, so instead of seeming like salad, it was more like it had been scrapped out of a taco or like coleslaw without the mayonnaise. Cornbread pound cake with ice cream was excellent. I miss the Even Keel.
