Was a winter night on Nantucket so it was really perfect. The bartender Louise, who was truly running the entire show, was wonderfully attentive without being cloying. She is such a nice lady and Town is lucky to have her! More

Contemporary American | Nantucket, Cape Cod and the Islands

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

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

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

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.
