A great spot to get superb seafood to go at a fish market in the midst of town. The lobster roll had enormous chunks of lobster throughout. The staff was great and helpful. For a sweet tooth, try the local chocolate chip cookies they sell bagged.

The best on Nantucket for sure! Do not go anywhere else for a lobster roll. After you get it, go sit on the patio overlooking the water and eat up!

right in the middle of everything..food is outstanding. Service was ok. We had to wait 5 minutes to get water, but after that it was smooth sailing. Try the clam bake!!

We come to Nantucket for a couple of weeks, most summers and when I'm up North, chowder is my food of choice. This is hands-down the best chowder on the island (and really the best I've ever had anywhere). Chunks of clam and potatoes in a just-thick-enough creamy broth. And seasoned just right for fabulous flavor. We must come in for chowder five or six times in our two week stay...it's just that irresistible! It's take-out only but if you grab a drink from the cooler (a Nantucket Nectar, of course!), the nice guys behind the counter will set you up with all you need to sit on the benches outside and devour scrumptiousness!

When in Nantucket, you must have at least one fabulous lobster roll, and this is the place. Don't waste your time or money anywhere else. The best bang for your buck too - $20 gets you a roll with a HALF POUND of lobster meat (vs the skimpy 1/3 lbers in other establishments). The sandwich is simply divine and loved it so much we enjoyed one for our final meal on the island.
