We like to find small restaurants/markets where food can be ordered to go so were quite glad to find this near the pier in Nantucket. We ordered the lobster roll, the clam chowder, and the soft shell crab sandwich. The lobster roll was mediocre, the clam chowder was o.k., the soft shell crab was disgusting. I took one bite and...

We had spent the week at the lovely Nantucket Inn and Conference Center and we had the luxury of vans and drivers taking us all around the island and we ate at some very nice restaurants but the real treat for us seafood lovers was the Nantucket Inn van taking us to the wharf to catch our Hy Line high...

Our hotel had made reservations for us a before our arrival on island - we arrived and the host said "you're table isn't ready come back and ask in a little while" - seriously? The host is supposed to come find you in the bar other...anyway, they managed to stick us at a table set for 4 (again, really?) in... More

I consider myself a clam chowder connoisseur. I would eat it with breakfast, lunch and dinner if I could. I've been eating this place's chowder for over ten years now and it's one of my favorites. It's expensive, $9 I think (although chowders at restaurant here go as high as $16 or even $18 for a bowl at the summer... More

Clam chowder, lobster rolls are the best. The people who run the fish market are friendly and helpful.

We heard about this place from a 6-generation Nantucket-er, so we figured we'd better give it a try. Lobster is a special favorite of ours, and we were delighted with the large lobster rolls: not too much mayo, and several complete claws on top of the salad itself. We got good clam chowder, too. A great lunch!

I had a terrific take out lunch from here last week. Excellent seafood and service. This place is definitely a find. I prefer it to many of the surrounding eateries.

We enjoyed the Bluefish Pate, lobster rolls and shrimp dishes. Clean, not fried, flavors of the sea beautifully prepared and presented. Not easy to find this kind of food on the islands as tourists often looking for something different. Thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside and sipping lemonade watching the world walk by. Eating well never felt so good!

A great place for seafood. I had a lobster roll packed full of tasty lobster and my friend had fried fish filet. Both were excellent and though they seem pricey ($22) for the lobster and ($14) for the fish, it's a fair price for good quality fresh food in this area. Take advantage of their tables just round the corner... More
