Once again Nantucket's didn't disappoint. Food is so good. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meals. Friendly, efficient service.

Overpriced Specials. Off season specials are overpriced and disappointing. 19 bucks for a fatty rib eye topped with a pickled onion. 16 bucks for a minuscule scallop appetizer. The service was excellent.

Have been coming to this restaurant for a long time. This restaurant has always maintained a friendly atmosphere, with good service & really good food. If you don't want a restaurant type atmosphere try the bar, the food is equally as good!

Good food, good decor, a little traditionnal, older clientele However they have numerous specials that are worth it. The food was very good, the service efficient, overall a good diner and evening.

I usually have bouillabaisse but this time got rockfish and was disappointed. A bit dry and overlooked. I think the chef must be new or was off bc right now I would not go back.
