They have great lobster dishes and a very nice Nantucket influenced menu and cocktails. Service is always great. A staple in Fenwick Island.

I recommend sitting in the bar area for a relaxed environment with a little more upbeat feel. Delicious appetizers and main courses with good service. You can not go wrong with any of your food choices.

On most occasions we opt for the Scallops... More

Three adult family members present, I'd take only adults to this restaurant. Anyway not my first visit and everyone exceedingly happy with the menus and what was selected. Always crowded when visiting. Last on Saturday night out of season. Limited nearby parking.

Nantuckets is a very popular restaurant on the eastern shore of Delaware. We dined there recently and had a memorable meal. The Caprese salad was beautifully presented with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil with olive oil & Balsamic vinegar. My husband had the largest PEI mussels we'd ever seen and they were big, fat & succulent. The dinner rolls that... More
