Lola 41 in Nantucket is by far the most fun place to eat on the Island. It's not by the water but go grab a drink at a 'water' spot first and then head to Lola for dinner. The drinks are great here though and there is a patio.

To save disapointment be sure to book or you won't get in. In the spring you can book ahead however, in the summer the phones open at 4.00 pm for that day. If you line up at the door at 4.00 (3.45 to be safe) you will get to reserve in person and that gaurantees a spot. The phone is really tough to get through on as they get so many calls. If there are just two of you try to reserve one of the high tops.

Why put yourself through this you might ask? The food is fun, the Lola Burger is to die for, the sushi fresh, the staff are awesome and the music is great! This is a very small restaurant but high on the ambience scale-- edging towards a 10. It's probably because it's always buzy, fun and there is a always a great scene. It's a 'must do' when visiting Nantucket.

I visited during off season and did not experience any of the reservation hassle or rude staff experienced by other reviewers. In fact I walked in off the street and was welcomed right in to the last empty seat at the bar. The guys at the door were cheerful and the bartender provided really friendly, excellent service. Unfortunately, the sushi itself was just so-so. I am a sushi lover and this was not particularly imaginative or fresh tasting. And this was on the high end of the most expensive sushi I've had. (including places like Nobu or Kennichi.). Atmosphere and service was excellent. I will probably go back and try something other than sushi.

Another great Nantucket dinner experience. Very friendly, attentive service. Great, well priced wine list and creative menu. Had an excellent filet while companion raved about her choice of salmon.
You get what you pay for here.
