Description: You wouldn't believe you weren't sitting near the ocean in New England. Located in the heart of downtown Greenville, across from the Peace Center for Performing Arts, everything about Nantucket inspires a feeling of deep satisfaction. Picture rich walnut-stained wood, elegant yet warm lighting, natural earth-tone colors, and the delicate mingling of fine wine, laughter and conversation. Nantucket is that rare destination that is at once relaxing and entertaining...Intimate and open...Romantic and engaging. Long, panoramic windows extend alongside the inviting bar and dining area to afford views of the Village Green and the courtyard patio, complete with a towering, artfully crafted, lighted stone waterfall.

“It was so good, we went back the next night!”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

We were in Greenville for a conference in early October, and a few locals recommended that we try Nantucket. We had such a great meal (4 of us) that we went back the next night with a party of 7. Highlights were the Filet, the soups (both She-Crab and Clam Chowder) and the very good (both in quality and reasonable prices) wine list. We had good service both nights, and had no complaints whatsoever. Highly recommended!

“Great Seafood”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

The Nantucket is co-located with the downtown Greenville Marriott Hotel ( no connection ). The formal dining rooms are elegant and separated which provides
privacy and attenuates noise and conversation. The servers appear to be seasoned
and well trained and are very knowledgeable of the menu and its preparation and the
wine list. One of our friends had a crab allergy and the server knew every dish which used crab meat. All the dishes were delicious and prepared to meet our individual desires. The overall service and food were excellent.
The Marriot has $5 valet parking. The Nantucket has a more informal bar and eating
area, which appears to be very busy and active, which serves the same high quality, fresh seafood.

“Very Nice!”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

The wife and I made this the prelude to an evening at the Peace Center. It was a good choice.
The facility is very nice; quiet and comfortable. The service was excellent and the food outstanding. I would like to see a little more extensive desert menu.
We look forward to going again and trying another of there excellent dishes.

“Best Seafood in Greenville”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

This restaurant is a sister establishment to Rick Erwin's West End Grille, and it lives up to the same reputation that Rick established for his steakhouse -- fresh food and impeccable service. I overheard a server tell the table next to us that all their fish is line caught and it arrives at the restaurant within 48 hours of hitting the docks. All fish is filleted and prepared there at the restaurant.

I don't eat fish very often and when I do, I opt for very mild flavors, so our server expertly directed me to the Grouper that had been paird with a cream cheese/blue crab mixture over hashbrown potatoes. My husband chose the Trout Amandine encursted with slivered almonds and served with peach chutney and a polenta cake The melding of flavors in each dish was extraordinary and the fish was so fresh. The fish is offered in a smaller 4 oz portion and a larger 8 oz portion. I should have gone with the 4 oz portion as I couldn't finish the other. You can order extra sides a la carte, but our entrees were fine on their own.

Like Rick Erwin's, this restaurant offers a three-course theater tasting menu for smaller appetites or budgets.

The wine list is just as expansive as at Rick Erwin's and the prices range from reasonable to very expensive. But even a reasonably-price wine ($26-30/bottle) tastes fabulous.

The She Crab soup was very good. The fresh crab in it was worth every spoonful!

Dessert for me was a white chocolate coconut creme pie -- heavenly.

The ambience of the restaurant is relaxing, the decor is tasteful. Our server was very attentive -- constantly keeping our water glasses full and pouring more wine. The restaurant offers valet parking, but there is plenty of parking nearby if you don't mind walking a couple of blocks.

You can eat here relatively inexpensively if you opt for the tasting menu or don't do the works like we did -- appetizer/soup, entree, sides, wine, dessert. You can eat here for $30 a person or $75 or more per person. It all depends on your appetite and budget! But whatever you order is worth every penny!

“Great atmosphere, delicious food!”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

My husband and I visited Nantucket Seafood Grill in downtown Greenville for our anniversary. We had been to Rick Erwin's other restaurant, Rick Erwin's Grill, the year before and loved it! Nantucket has a great atmosphere and wait staff. Our hostess and waiter wished us a happy anniversary. The food was superb, very delicious for seafood in a town 3 hours from the ocean. We had the spicy crab pimento cheese dip as an appetizer, it's definitely worth getting. My husband had the grilled lobster tails and I had the trout. Both were again, very delicious. We got a dessert to split and to our surprise, they brought out a free dessert for our anniversary! So we got to try both the Bananas Foster cheesecake (which was huge!) and the Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee. We were very pleased with our entire experience and will definitely go back again.
