Farm-to-table | Nantucket, Cape Cod and the Islands

This is a great place for sharing plates, in fact it’s encouraged but not required! We started with a stuffed artichoke which was tender and flavorful. Then moved onto the the cauliflower which is perfectly cooked and spiced in a most unusual way! For our larger plate we chose duck confit salad with a perfectly poached egg, another great combination! This is fast becoming one of my favorite places on Nantucket, healthy, creative and delicious fare! You must try it! More

Lovely preheater dinner. Don't miss the 3 for 30 if available. Look forward to their wedge salad and spicy (not too) pot stickers More

Great food! Dined there 2x in a week it was that delicious! Interesting and unique combinations of ingredients but not too far out, just a bit of creative spin on melding flavors. Small but lively bar scene. Sunday brunch was excellent- perfect sized menu with something for everyone. High recommend. More

We enjoyed both Thanksgiving Dinner and Christmas Day Dinner at the restaurant and we were very happy at both occasions. The Waitstaff is excellent and the Food is great. The only comment is that we could not see labels on the sweets at the dessert bar and so we had to take too many to sample. Oh darn. More

Contemporary American | Nantucket, Cape Cod and the Islands

This restaurant was a true gem, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown! A quaint historic home done up to perfection for the Season, was just the beginning. The Prix Fixe New Years Eve dinner (surf/turf/filet & lobster tail) was one of the best meals I’ve ever had on Island (or anywhere for that matter)! The Chef greeted his guests personally and was very attentive, as was his waitress on a busy night and 2 waiters down. We wouldn’t have known, had they not informed us beforehand. The service was impeccable! I could not more enthusiastically endorse this charming restaurant and its owners! (You can book on Open Table too btw) Enjoy! More

Café | Nantucket, Cape Cod and the Islands

Barnaby's Place is such a fun kid's date on Nantucket. Tucked away in Nantucket Bookworks, author Ms. Wendy, has created a wonderful little kid's corner. A reservation includes a 45 min playdate/craft, healthy organic kid-friendly snacks and Barnaby goodies. My son LOVES the activities and has so much fun. It's absolutely worth it for your kids when visiting for a special day! His first stop is always Barnaby! Can't recommend a visit enough! More

Lunch outdoor on the patio was special for an October afternoon. The ambience was warm and cozy despite the blustery day. The service was impeccable. I cannot wait to return next summer. Toppers is truly a special place. More

Discover Nantucket

About 25 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, Nantucket Island is a vacation destination for a reason. If you take the ferry to Nantucket, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy some sun and waves on the beach as well as a variety of dining experiences. Of course, at the heart of Nantucket's dining scene is the fresh seafood caught from the Atlantic Ocean that surrounds it. Grab a seat outside at one of the many restaurants with a view of the water and take your pick from a lobster roll to tuna tartare. If you aren't in the mood for seafood, Nantucket also hosts a number of bistros and pubs where you can enjoy a burger and a brew or other classic American fare as well as fine dining spots with creative and varied menus.
