“One long happy hour!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Millie's is a restaurant where drinks and dinner merge, as all the food they serve is casual, eat with your hands fare! Just because it is casual doesn't mean the food isn't excellent. We had arrived late on the island and drove out for supper and sunset Saturday night. We had a wait for a table but soon realized, after perching in the bar upstairs and ordering wine and appetizers, that we could have simply ordered dinner too with not any real difference in view or comfort. The scallop ceviche was outstanding. But it never felt like dinner, just one very long, very happy hour!

Delicious, delicious, delicious. And fabulous margaritas, too. Highly recommend the flank steak taco, the lobster quesadilla and the tuna taco. Grab as many people as you can and just get one of everything and share because it's all awesome. Great at sunset.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We were two couples who went - drinks were very overpriced. Food was a little overpriced, but not worth the money. I can make better guacamole and salsa than they can. Tasted very store bought. Service was a bit rude; table for four was so small we had to put our water glasses and condiments on the floor. When we asked to move, they said NO. Very disappointing. So many places in Nantucket are better than this.....

“The sun never sets on Millie's empire”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Millie's is an excellent bar-restuarant near the beach at Madaket, the western edge of Nantucket. Many come to watch the sunset (including us), but we would come back for the good casual food. The lobster roll was just the right hing, along with local beer. The salads are inventive. There are Mexican-themed items. You can take the $2 public bus to the end of the road, or else the Millie's free shuttle bus, which runs less frequently. On the night we visited, there was a wedding party having a deluxe catered dinner on tables set up on the sands of the beach. But we probably ate better at Millie's. No reservations.

“Can't say enough good things about Millies.”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Millie's is a bargain on Nantucket. Sunset and drinks are great. Free shuttle or bus from town to Millie's out in Madaket. Food is consistently good. Upscale casual. Great lobster rolls. Salads are great too. Most food for your buck - go for the quesadilla.
