This guy is the real deal. Get a mudslide, dirty banana or any of the other drinks Donovan whips up and enjoy on the deck.

We stumbled upon Nancy's after a few of our other dinner options fell through so we honestly didn't know what to expect. We were blown away by the wait staff as our waitress was wonderful. She was especially honest about what we should order, if we over ordered, and her recommendations. We split the Summer Salad (great combinations of tastes and flavors with a great dressing), the Lobster Mac & Cheese (so-so / slightly overpriced but still tasty), and the BBQ Ribs (they were out of sight!) We would say that this restaurant was solid and did the trick when it came to satiating our appetite on the vineyard.

What I love about Nancy's is that they have everything. You can have the best frozen drinks on the island with Donovan downstairs at his colorful bar and enjoy some music! They also have a snack bar, that is great for families, with the best cheeseburgers. If you like Mediterranean food their hummus and falafel are great. They even have a shaded area where you can get raw bar on the water. The restaurant upstairs is great too! They have an air conditioned dining room and an outside patio, all with views of the harbor and campgrounds. The menu is different upstairs and they have table service. They have a variety of options, something for everyone. I love the Cod, I get it almost every time I eat there. If you're looking for a snack, the calamari is very tasty and a big portion too. Good music and lots of seats on the railing to watch the action on the harbor. Stick around to witness the sunset, best setting on the island.

Was very breezy on the deck. Portions were big. Service was good. It is expensive but food is good. More of a special occasion place.

We dined at Nancy's because we heard the Obamas enjoy eating here during their trips to Martha's Vineyard. We sat in the upstairs restaurant with a more upscale menu but you can also sit in the upstairs outdoor deck or on the patio where you can have grilled ala-cart food. While the prices may seem a little high, the food was excellent, especially the baked scallops and the shrimp scampi. If you aren't a seafood lover however, there are less options for you. The quality and quantity of the food were great and the service was excellent as well!
