“Just OK food; good service”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Visited here on a Saturday night and got a table outside under the awning since it was raining. Fatoush salad was OK, fried clams were average, sauteed spinach was overcooked, pasta dish was OK but arrived cold. Nothing made this meal stand out at all. Waitress was attentive, flexible and helpful.

Thank you for your review of Nancy's. I am glad to hear we provided a high level of service during your visit, but disappointed you thought our food was average. The Fattoush Salad is our most popular salad at Nancy's with a house-made dressing and fresh vegetables I am sorry you did not enjoy it. Our Fried Clams are one the best sellers consistently here and we get rave reviews daily on how fresh and large our whole belly clams and strips are. I do apologize that your pasta was not hot enough for you. I truly believe this was an exception to our standards of service and quality of food. I invite you to please come back and try us again. Thank you again for the feedback

“Good food & service”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Outdoor bar/seating area was a great find, overlooking the harbor. Although they were always busy, we were seated promptly each time, and quick service. Impressive mixology in the upstairs bar.

“Great food & drinks!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Came here for lunch in the middle of summer and enjoyed a great atmosphere and attentive service. The food was delicious, had the lobster mac & cheese and the cod. Gotta try the dirty banana when you visit!
