We biked out to Wauwinet from town and spent time on a beautiful morning reading on the beach. After that, we went to Millies which is a few hundred feet from the beach. Very nice bar, very casual (as beach bars tend to be). We had the best shrimp tacos we've ever had here, and for Nantucket it was very reasonable. Lots of fun and good food.

I was a guest for a cocktail hour here at the hotel. The view is lovely on a nice day. The landscaping is attractive. The outdoor seating was relaxed. It is an upscale environment. The menu is so limited. Nothing on it for dinner interested me. There are basically NO appetizers to enjoy with your cocktails unless you start getting creative and a bit pushy for them to do something in the kitchen. The servers are not in control of the menu but take the heat for the disappointment for the lack of variety on the menu. We were able to get a fruit tray, cheese platter, nuts, chips, and some kind of fish salad on crackers yuck! But for an upscale place, it left a lot to be desired in interesting my palate!

Best location in Nantucket and totally charming. This year, there seemed to be an absence of management supervision and service was less good than in the past. Toppers restaurant has always disappointed us. A lovely terrace, amazing wine list, good service, but the complex food exceeds the kitchen's abilityto make it taste more than just satisfactory.

This is expensive, but there is no better way to impress the heck out of someone than dinner at Topper's.

You will be treated like royalty even though you're not. The last time we were there the lobster was even more amazing than before. Taken out of the shell and mysteriously improved and then reformed to make something fabulous even more so. And no mussing with the shell either.

If you have a car on ACK you can drive to it. We did once, but it is a long drive back after a blow out of a meal. You can take a taxi both ways, which is the easiest.

But for a knock out (even your mother-in-law will be impressed) evening - take the motor boat from the town wharf and back. Wow!
