I had a wonderful shrimp and scallop skewer and friends had several steak selections. As good as my seafood was....they claimed their steaks were the best they ever tasted. You also get a free dessert on certain nights. Strawberry shortcake was simply amazing.

This place is an awesome place to visit with your family. Not too expensive but still classy. Excellent cake. Something for everyone.

At the strong suggestion from my hotel as well as the late hour I had dinner at Nantucket last night. I arrived about 30 minutes before closing time. It has a decent patio but rain and humidity ruled that option out so I ate at...More

We went for an early dinner and ordered the Nantucket Seafood Pasta which was very good. I'm usually skeptical of ordering such a dish since I often find that the dish is more pasta than anything else. This was not the case with the Nantucket...More
