On a recent weekend trip to Nantucket, we dined here twice. First time was a busy Friday night and we went without a reservation. The hostess was very accommodating and said that she could have a table ready in a half hour. We just happened to be on Nantucket for restaurant week and they were offering a three course dinner for $35. We opted out the first night, but thoroughly enjoyed the pan roasted mussels, beet salad, and the halibut entree. After enjoying this meal so much, we decided to go back another night. While waiting for our table, we sat at the bar for a glass of wine. The bartender was very friendly and recommended a few items we should try. This time we went for the three course meal, starting with the tuna tartar which was absolutely fabulous! Melt in your mouth good. Then the halibut, which was delicious and cooked to perfection. The only downfall is that they do not offer any options for dessert, just one per night. The bread pudding was tasty but I would've preferred something not so heavy as I was quite full. Overall a fantastic meal, great service and reasonably priced.

“Quaint and cozy”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We were looking for a place to eat. We wanted something special on our 1st evening in town. We were all tired after traveling for many hours. Someone noticed us looking at restaurant menus and told us that Queequeg's was a very nice place to eat and quite comfortable. They were right. As soon as I walked into the dim, candlelit restaurant with it's warm glowing colors, I knew that we had made the right choice. We were not disappointed. The menu isn't extensive, but the choices and presentations are excellent!

I like it here and have dinner a few time each visit to Nantucket.
The bar is friendly and a great place to have dinner if you are traveling solo. The food is good and reasonably priced.

“Top notch all the way”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We were lucky enough to try Queequegs (Kwee-kwegs) during "Restaurant Week" on Nantucket which meant we got an appetizer, entree, and dessert for $35. This is a very small restaurant so reservations are definitely recommended. There is both indoor and outdoor seating as well as seating at the bar. If your only available space is at the bar, take it! The food is well worth it.
I can highly recommend the skillet roasted PEI mussels served in a basil broth with roasted tomato. The New England Clam Chowder was also tasty with apple wood bacon giving it a wonderful flavor. All of the dishes coming out of the kitchen looked superb so it was hard to make a choice, but we both had a hankering for the NY strip. It was grilled to perfection, butter knife tender, and served thinly sliced with carmelized onions over bleu cheese and atop of a bordelaise sauce and grilled asparagus spears. The truffled frites were the best fries I have ever tasted. For dessert we both opted for the very rich chocolate banana bread served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
The quality of the food makes the prices worth it. Everything on Nantucket is expensive; I paid over $6 for a single scoop of ice cream in a waffle cone, so by comparison, the prices here are not exorbitant. The service was superb without being hovering. Definitely a first class establishment and an excellent chef. I will eat here anytime.

“Enjoyable outside dining”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We had a great dinner for three outside on the deck on a Friday night in mid-September. Halibut, specially requested vegetarian pasta, and pasta with bolognese sauce were excellent.
