The restaurant is like the old fashioned supper clubs. I loved it. Our server was delightful and very helpful. Made our evening relaxing and fun. The food was just average and a bit overpriced.

We stopped for a drink and to listen to the music. The place was packed and such fun was being had by all.. Service was attentive and drinks were reasonably priced considering there was live music and no cover charge. Well go back..maybe next time...More

We have enjoyed dining at Nolan's many times. The food is always excellent and the service never less than good. Diners should come in Beach Dressy , but it's worth it!

We didn't particularly enjoy our dining experience. If you have to put paper on the table, it kind of takes away the "special" in your dining experience. But if you like to dance, this is the place to go.

We had boated all day and wanted a good meal. What we got was a fabulous meal! Our waitress was very nice and attentive. Our food was prepared perfectly and presented nicely. They were very busy but still maintained a good pace with serving everything....More

We went to Nolan's again this year and the food was good, but not great. My husband and I both got prime rib and it was very tough. The service was decent. It has been much better overall in the past.

Although the restaurant is more upscale than most in the area, causal dress is what most patrons wear. After all, most were on vacation, so we saw jeans, shorts and capris.

Yes they do. I would call them, however, when you get in town to see who is playing on which nights. I think things start around 7:30PM Best
