I visit Nantucket each year and am lucky enough to have a friend with a house on the island who always knows the best places to go. On my first visit to the island -- over 10 years ago -- we went to Straight Wharf and had an average meal that (like everything on Nantucket) was pricey. And then my friend never wanted to go back until this year -- she had started to hear great things about this restaurant after many years of it being average.
We absolutely LOVED our visit. The atmosphere is simply lovely - a casual sophistication that wasn't too noisy. We couldn't figure out what kind of wine we wanted and the sommelier was not only friendly and helpful but very patient with us. The meal was top notch - each of us with different entrees and everyone loving their meal. Friendly and efficient service as well.
Reservations are highly recommended in the summer -- and I believe you can request outdoor covered seating (we sat inside for our dinner) and they will make best efforts to honor. And while we were in too much of a food coma to want to go for drinks afterwards, the bar seems to be quite lively.
I look forward to returning on my next visit to Nantucket.
