“Fun Spot”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Had a great lunch here -- food was quite good and you cannot beat the location or the atmosphere for this restaurant. And while I am sure it is lovely for dinner as well, nothing beats the day time views from Cru so I am more inclined to come back again for lunch. Food is pricey - - but that goes with the territory in Nantucket. And while our server was super friendly, it did seem like she forgot us after our greeting.

Have also been to Cru for drinks on more than one occasion-- both before dinner in their lovely outdoor seating area and after dinner near their bar. Again - can't beat the location or the atmosphere. I make annual visits to Nantucket and this will continue to be a 'must visit' spot.

“Beautiful setting, food decent, pricey”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Nantucket is pricey and this place probably moreso than most for what you get. The lobster bisque and hushpuppies were sensational, the rest about average. You go here primarily for the setting on the water. Overall worth a trip during your visit but be prepared to pay lots more than you normally would for food of similar quality.

“Great Food & Atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Great food and friendly staff are second only to the view from the back bar. This is a gret place to enjoy a drink and appreciate the inner harbor.

“great spot on the water”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

way down at the end of the dock you can get outdoor or open windows on the harbor seating, lobster salad, lobster rolls, good fellowship and happy drinkers for a sunny afternoon. A super spot after a sail on the gaff rigged cutter. Try it - you'll like it

“Great spot to eat/drink on the island”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Dined here with a handful of friends twice in one weekend. Once inside the restaurant for dinner, and a second time the next day for lunch outside. The food is very good as were the drinks. The view is beautiful. I really enjoyed the Duke of York bourbon cocktail, and the soft shell crab entree.
