“Epic Fish sandwich.”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We enjoyed lunch in their outdoor dining area. Friendly waitress and very clean surroundings. We will go again when we visit Nantucket again.

“nice location, average food”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Had been looking forward to a lobster roll all weekend and thought I might find it here, not so much. It was ok, but nothing special. My husband got a burger, which he said was excellent. Their fries were nothing great, and not a fan of the coleslaw, both of which had to be purchased as sides because the $18 lobster roll only came with chips. kind of dissapointing, but not a bad spot to people watch if you are waiting for the Hyline ferry.

“Average at best”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Was recommended to us by the cab driver , although we were seated right away and the wait staff was accomodating. The quality of the food was average at best and i think the pricing is a little high for pub food - but i guess that is to be expected in a tourist place. When all was said and done for two burgers, fish sandwich and hot dog and drinks we paid $78. It was close to the ferry and convenient, but i doubt i would go back

“Stunning Island, Great Town but AVERAGE Restaurant...”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

We took a day trip to Nantucket with our friends who were visiting from Australia. A local told us the perfect way to spend the day would be to have lunch at the Cru and then drive down to Sconset for a walk along The Bluff path...   

Unfortunately, it was Wednesday and as its the end of the season - the 'Cru' was closed (now only open Thu-Sun). As time was short, we wanted to find another place where we could have lunch close by. The Tavern looked nice - it was reasonably busy and the menu had exactly what we wanted. The five of us chose Lobster Rolls (x3), Calamari and a Mahi Mahi.

On a positive note, the Calamari was very nice. On a less positive note though - the Mahi Mahi was over-cooked and dry. By the way, a few mixed green leaves DOES NOT constitute a 'Bed of Salad'. Worse still, the rolls were tiny and we couldnt tast the lobster for mayonnaise. This was very disappointing - especially for our visitors from Australia.

The service provided by Mollie was friendly and functional.

As it was the end of the season - I got the impression this place was just going through the motions.. mediocre food for passing tourists..   

Good points - Location & a (surprisingly) well priced menu
Bad points - Mediocre food

At least the post-lunch walk along The Bluff footpath was nice...next time we will have to make sure we visit between Thu-Sun when the Cru is open...!
