“Great food and price”

Nantucket Pharmacy Lunch Counter
Ranked #3 of 7 Dessert in Nantucket
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 22, 2017

Old fashioned soda counter with the round swivel chairs and employees grilling up a tasty grilled cheese sandwich with thick cheddar and fresh white sourdough bread. They only take cash, so be prepared, but it was a great atmosphere and really good for just a little money.

We had dirty dogs, sandwiches and fountain sodas. They also have great gift/tourist items for reasonable prices.

It's an old pharmacy with a lunch counter! If you want a coffee & a donut or a milkshake and a liverwurst sandwich, this is the place to go. Lunch is pretty simple - hot dogs, grilled cheese & ice cream cones. It's always packed. Take the kids and let them spin the old stools around!

Sitting at the counter was like experiencing what it must have been like years ago to go to the soda shoppe! We ordered root beer float and ice cream. Both were delicious! Definitely would go again when visiting Nantucket!

Sitting on the stool at the Pharmacy counter for lunch is sheer delight! Don't know whether to watch the bustle behind the counter as Frappe's (milkshakes) are made with skill, or try to read all the hand-written menu items posted on the walls. My favorite: Pete's Dirty Dogs with relish and mustard please. They also have the 2d best Ice Cream on the island after Star's (sorry Juice Bar). Just sayin' the ice cream at the Pharmacy is delicious!
