Their food is nothing to write home about but the cake is on point. Huge selection! Huge ("mile high") slices too. On Tues/Sat you get a free piece of cake with purchase of $13 entree. I've also just stopped in to pick up cake...

Delightful place to stop and eat. We were on the road en-route from Salisbury to the OBX and stopped here for lunch. Staff were very helpful and friendly and the soup and lunch were delicious. Wish it were just around the corner from where we live... I'd move in..!!

My husband and I had lunch here today before a dr. appt. at one of the adjacent UNC medical facilities. He got a Reuben and I had a turkey club. Both sandwiches were very good. Choice of sides included apple coleslaw, which he got and said was good. Unfortunately, I opted for the sweet potato fries which must have been... More

Standard all America menu, would suggest some local fare like pulled pork sandwich, collards, blackeyed peas etc... to the menu. The food that they have is very good, their Tomatoe Soup is OUTSTANDING and their bleu cheese dressing yummy too. Do not forget dessert, they are incredible!

We stopped for a late supper at Nantucket. My friend had been there but I had not. Our server was attentive and very capable. I had the bacon cheeseburger and onion rings. The burger was great, the onion rings were good but a little greasy. My friend had the Blackened Salmon Salad. She thought it was terrific. The highlight of... More

Went early so walked right in but strangely did not receive as proper service in my opinion as expected since there was like no one really there. We were waited on quickly for our food, but once the food was delivered and while eating checked on to see order was correct but forgot to come back later to check on... More

Good food. Large portions. On the pricey side for sandwiches. A bit noisy, lots of families at lunch on weekends. Great desserts!

I had the Monday steak special, and found the entire meal to be solid and tasty. I'd definitely return if I lived in the area. The cakes looked amazing, and the banana pudding was really good.

My wife and I love to stop in on our way back from Raleigh to High Point (exit 273 from I-40W) at the Nantucket grill. Cozy, delicious food, great service, and OH THOSE CAKES!

There is a nice outdoor area with tables if the weather permits. The bar is available for quick seating, and the TV's allow for watching whatever is on. Food service is available at the bar as well as the tables, inside and out. A number of beers are available on tap, plus mixed drinks. Entrees are served with warm bread... More
