Great, fun, vibrant and affordable.Its an exciting place; however, since the place gets really busy and they don't take reservations, at times its a long wait.

We had dinner here during our stay. The fish & ship meal had 2 nice pieces of fish with fries and cole slaw. Service was great and staff pleasant.

1st off the service sucked. Had to continually ask for a drink refill that I never did receive. Meal took a long time to get to the table. Ordered chicken sandwich and fish tacos, the chicken was undercooked and the tortillas were hard, like they've been sitting out for hours. Informed the waitress about the chicken sandwich and she took... More

We traveled to Martha's Vineyard with our dog and were concerned about finding a restaurant to eat at that would allow pets. Nancy's was the perfect solution. Plenty of outside seating and good food.

The atmosphere was beautiful and the waitstaff was accommodating. Definitely worth the effort. I will update this week if they want to go back as we are back in... More

Nancy's is always packed and for good reason. It's location right on the harbor is perfect, and the food is very good. We enjoyed drinks, appetizers, and watched an amazing sunset. Definitely try Nancy's!

We were in Oak Bluffs to take the ferry back to Woods Hole, and we didn't have a lot of time. Not only did we get seated right away, but we were also out on the deck and in the shade (the best of all worlds, as far as I'm concerned). The place is clean, servers are friendly and prompt.... More
