“Ate at the Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

We ate at the bar. Lola our server was pleasant, I would suggest she give customers ordering food full attention when discussing the menu. Not a criticism just a suggestion. Had two appetizers enjoyed them both. We were there for three nights and this was our best dinner. I would go again.

“Sexy & Satisfying”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

We were told about this place from other guests staying at our hotel. It was amazing. If you are looking for a very sexy, intimate little place with great seafood and cocktails this is it. Small, cozy, dimly lite, romantic. Nice wine and craft cocktail menu. I had the shrimp and grits which I have had many times before at other places but these had a poached egg on top which added a whole other dimension to this dish. it was over the top. I also ordered a tempura shrimp & avocado roll. It was different in that the shrimp tempura was hot but the avocado and rice was cold. Again, such dimension ! It was too chilly for us to sit outside but there was an outdoor bar and dining area. Overall it was great food and ambiance !

“Very good dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

We dined at Town last night and had a good meal in most relaxing surroundings. I chose the short rib tacos to start followed by blackened swordfish. I thoroughly enjoyed both dishes and the quantities were very good but not overwhelming. My wife selected the vegetarian conical wraps which she thought delicious and they looked good. To follow she selected the appetiser scollop which was probably the largest scollop I have ever seen! All in all a very good and most enjoyable dinner in downtown Nantucket.

“great place love their dinner and a movie special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

excellent food, service is attentive not intrusive and great cocktails in a relaxing environment. I recommend their 2 for 25 special which is only running for a few more days; full size entree' and app or entree and dessert for 25.00. Their full price menu is a little pricey but that is normal for Nantucket and the food lives up to the cost; their appetizers are especially good and priced well.

“I Can Not et Enough of this place.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

I continue to dine here every time I visit Nantucket.
Dinning here through the winter has made me appreciate the experience even more.
The whole crew goes above & beyond to make you feel welcome.
The Bartenders are wonderful! The Chefs are very accommodating, making exceptions to the dishes if asked and the food is always amazing!
Always a great variety, from vegetarian options to the unexpected dishes like Ox Tail, I have never had a guest leave dissatisfied.
They are one of the few that are open year round so
If you are planing a trip to Nantucket, Town is the perfect place to dine!
