“Seafood in Rockville”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

We ate here twice at this restaurant tucked away in a residential community, and have been very happy with their food. Great size portions and taste to match. Our first time was lunch on a Sunday and nice and quiet, second time with 2 other couples on a Sat. night, expect some noise. Very hard to find a good seafood restaurant around anymore without having to drive out to the beach. Will certainly be back for more!

“Nantucket's Reef - 3rd time's a charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Nantucket's Reef is at least the 3rd restaurant in this location, as I recall, and it's a winner. We went with cousins and were all treated like "family". Seated right away, our waiter Alex, was "the best". He mentioned the specials and explained anything we had questions about. 2 of us got the crabcake platter. NO FILLER in that crabcake, just Old Bay seasoning - delicious! We also had the slaw which had some special ingredient. We all agreed that it was the best slaw we've ever had - could have eaten even more. I got the asparagus. It was tasty but the thick part of the stalk should have been cut off - it made it tougher than we'd have liked. The waiter offered to take it back and bring something else. My cousin traded hers in for actual brown rice. My fiancè got an entree salad topped with lobster. He gave me a taste - soooo good! I don't remember what our other cousin ordered but he said it was quite good. For dessert, we split a couple of slices of key lime pie - very tasty. We will definitely go back.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

I've been to Nantucket twice and have enjoyed it each time. I get the stuffed cod with crabmeat and have been happy both times. The service is also good. It can get somewhat noisy in the evening. Definitely a worthwhile neighborhood stop to visit.

“New England Style Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Obviously a lot of care goes into the handling and prep of the seafood. The portions were large and the fish cooked just right. We had asparagus tempura as an appetizer and it was perfect. Salads are good, as well as happy hour specials. We will definitely be back again.

“Easter Brunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere reminded me of Long John Silvers. We ordered Brunch. Our choices were "OK" . We choose this restaurant due to location & seafood selection. We'll try lunch before making a final decision.
