The Sea Dog has been Nix's for more than a year. It is still the same ownership: only the name was changed because of a cancelled franchise agreement.

This place was great but it has closed and it is now Nix's, but Nix's still serves Sea Dog (some are on draft and other varieties by bottle). Wish Sea Dog was still here...

While I do appreciate the 4 Star review, unfortunately this is not our location. We are on Nantucket and do not have Valet Parking. But thank you for the review, and please come visit us when you can!

Had lunch there (new name for bar, Nix's). Really interesting and fun bar food. Watched the World Cup over lunch. Had a nice time. Service was a bit slow, but good food.

Went in for lunch with the family, service was great and the food was very good too! Make sure to try one of the craft beers.

OK, so this is definitely the time for locals - very few visitors to the island this time of year, but we were on-island for an overnight, and wanted to see the Superbowl, so the Sea Dog was our choice. The beers were quite good...More
