Best dining experience of the season for us. For Nantucket standards, too many times value doesn't deliver but it did here for us. Granted we were over 3 bills all said and done but walked away with respect. Bread service was best of recent travels, with precedence on presentation the portions suffer, wishing salad had more substance, scallop app was... More

The restaurant just hosted a friend's wedding festivities. OMG, the food was the most talked about thing next to bride & groom. Rave, rave, rave. American Seasons should be on everyone's dining list.

The menu sounds so impressive yet as you walk in the floor is somehow slippery, bad first impression. So we order from the amazing sounding menu however once the food arrives its just simple everyday food. Portions are small and generally overpriced, just not worth it - not the best reataurant on the island.

Doesn't come up to all the hype. The food is very good but not memorable. Service was efficient, wine by the glass not of the quality for the price of that at similar restaurants.

American Seasons came highly recommended by a business associate. Located on Center Street, about a 10 minute walk from Union Street Inn (where we were staying). The lovely converted house was pleasant and intimate. Linda and I shared an outstanding scallop appetizer and both ordered the guinea hen from their just-released fall menu. It was absolutely fabulous!

Exceptionally prepared food. A more limited menu, but each item very tasty. The baked cod was divine. The salads so fresh with great dressing. Excellent home baked bread and desserts. Carrot cake light and moist. The terrace is a delightful summer experience.

Slightly sketchy service but food was excellent. We were there with friends. Halibut, Guinea hen, and cod were great. Server had an attitude but the excellent food more than made up for it.
