My friends and I just came from a 3-hour full island tour and were, to say the very least, famished. Although we planned on having lunch at the MV Chowder Company, we decided to go to Nancy's instead because first, it was recommended by our tour guide and, second, it was just a few steps away from where the tour bus dropped us off. A decision we regretted. The indoor dining area was almost empty and we asked one of the employees if she could accommodate all ten of us in one table. She said no. We asked if she could put 2-3 tables together so we can all be seated together; she said she could not do that. So we ended up splitting into two groups. The staff was grouchy, the clam chowder left much to be desired. The calamari and fried clams are nothing to rave about. Not coming back, for sure! .

I am very sorry to hear about your experience at Nancy's. We regularly sit parties of 10 or more all season long. There are some tables that we can not pull together because it creates a fire hazard and blocks the walking aisle too much. If this was the case we failed in communicating that to you in a better manner. Our fried seafood and chowder is the freshest around and customer favorites all season. If there was an issue with quality of your food I wish you had alerted the server or a manager so we could have fixed the problem. In regards to your perception of the staff being grouchy, I apologize. Customer service is priority number one being in the service industry requires a welcoming and friendly attitude at all times. We train all our staff to attentive and polite. I will look into this matter and address it. Please give us the opportunity to change your mind if you make it back to MV. Thank you

We were at Nancy's around 2;30 p.m. and were just looking for appetizers at first . We ended up having Lobsters to die for, the best calamari , great salad and their Strawberry colada drink.This restaurant was recommended by one of the locals. Thanks for the great recommendation.

We went for dinner at Nancy's Restaurant by the pier. Not only it's a beautiful place by the pier, the seafood was so delicious!! We had scallops for an appetizer and their meals is very good. We highly recommend anyone to try there!

Lunch on the rooftop terrace overlooking the harbour on a sunny day is a great way to while away some time. Food and service are good and the mixed crowd makes it a good place to relax and people watch. On a windy day I would opt for a table indoors.

A great place for lunch on their rooftop terrace. Food was good - not very fancy - but fresh and tasty. Server friendly and helpful. Went in Sept and weather great - not sure what it would be like in winter.
