My wife and I just ate at Dune and were very impressed by the food and the atmosphere. The restaurant has a lot of charm. My lamb was cooked to perfection and had a very complex flavor profile. We'll definitely be coming back when we're back on island

We love Dune... come to Nantucket at least 3 timers per year, sometimes more and would not miss going to Dune; used to be Brandt Point...no more this is the restaurant!...love the pork belly and also all the 1/2 plates. A very special place for us; just made yet another reservation!

Obviously one of "the" places to go on Nantucket, but not overbearing by any means. Bar and wait staff very down to earth, and the chef paid a visit to the crowd as well. The food was amazing – fresh, quality ingredients, put together with a modern approach. Just thinking about it makes me salivate! I will definitely be back!

Food, plate presentation, decor, ambiance, staff hospitality and wine selection were all top notch. I've run and opened restaurants around the US, so I have a good feel for a well run operation, and this is one of the them! We had 3 of their "small portion" entrees (which were huge), a great bottle of wine and dessert for $100 - better than any deal I've had in Boston, and we were on the island. Can't more highly recommend.

We happened to be in Nantucket for Restaurant Week, and we weren't disappointed once. The meal we had at Dune was really delicious, service was attentive but not overbearing, and the drinks were good. We sat outside in the covered porch, and the heat lamps were perfect at keeping the chill away. We're looking forward to going back!
