Always fun. Known for their bloody mary bar. Had some great early dinners there with friends. Very accomodating to bigger groups.

This is a bar,with all sorts of booze and beer. There is a menu of typical bar food. But the piece de resistance was the shuckabuck oysters on the half shell from 3 to 5PM every afternoon.....that's a dollar each! At least that was the scene the last time I ate there. Today, Sept 6, 2016, I walked by Nixs... More

Stopped in on a summer weekday afternoon. Mostly deserted inside. Bartender was friendly, beer on tap was fine. The oysters, however, were not. Brutally shucked, with several broken shells, no juice, and on the warm side. Dodgy at best. Any restaurant that can't invest in training staff how to properly handle oysters(storage, shucking, presentation) has no business offering them for... More

Stopped in here with a big, hungry group. We were seated quickly and waitstaff was very attentive, even with kids in the group. Food came quickly. Food was very good (hot, fresh). Waitstaff made us all feel very comfortable and especially went out of their way to make the kids feel comfortable and keep them occupied. Will definitely visit here... More

Daily from 3-5 p.m., go for the raw oysters and clams on the half-shell. A GREAT deal for Nantucket - a nice afternoon snack or appetizer before dinner. Casual atmosphere is inviting, too.

Menu has lots of variety and the quality was very good. The tuna tacos were excellent. Our service was friendly and prompt. Overall very good experience especially during the high season. We will be back!

Do Not use the restaurant guides or on-line menus to make your decision about dining at Nix's. Menu is Completely different with a handful of choices at best. When requesting a minor change to the wrap told "can't they r pre-made". Really - it's a wrap and u only have about 10 items on the menu. Nachos were like cardboard... More

Ok a bit scared it was quite empty for lunch hour but ventured in.. Kat our server could not have been better and the food was pretty good ...this is why I would never return $5.50 root beer and $12.00 skimpy average glasses of wine ...

There was nothing wrong with this place but nothing particularly great either. Nachos were tiny, not enough for four people to share. Burgers were pretty good, also nothing special. Service was fine, though a bit hurried despite the place being pretty quiet. We pretty much went here because we were looking for a casual place and assumed we'd have difficulty... More
