The place has been on our list of dining choices for a while when on Nantucket, yet this was a first time there. The menu was quite different than what I had heard in the past but utterly delightful. We enjoyed 5 tapas and one salad, each with its own special twist. Cannot miss= Lamb, oysters. Really different but delightful= Peppers. Beet salad= Not like anything I have ever had. Well mixed drinks, friendly, attentive service, and feel like we were not at all rushed, ordering the tapas as we decided what we wanted next made this a lovely dinner.

This restaurant was updated recently and was really great- new decor and new menu- a great success. The prior version was very traditional.

Was okay. No real entrees just shareable plates that frankly are pricey for what you get. Don’t get me wrong it was well done, tasty, nice presentation. Just skimpy. Even by tapas standards and we are very familiar with small shareable plates concept. Clams were probably the biggest disappointment and the cauliflower the biggest winner.

Final tally: GOOD not great.

Great downtown location and nice ambiance. Noise level was pretty high considering restaurant was not full. Portions are meant for sharing but are not very large. Our server seemed rushed and did not spend much time going over the menu or making suggestions or input on what to order. When she finally came by to ask how everything was, we mentioned the meat on the steak kebab (which was a small portion) was tough and chewy. She didn't offer to bring us another skewer or even take it off the bill. Some dishes were better than others. WIth some guidance and attention from an engaged server on what to order, I would try again.

We came to Club Car on a date night during our family vacation. We notated that we were celebrating a special occasion when asked while making the reservation, but there were no mentions of that during our time there so I am unclear as to why they even ask. The service was sub-par. It seemed we had 2 servers, 1 of which was not friendly and we felt as if we were bothering her. The food was good, and served warm but did not match the price tag. (We heard from a few locals that the menu was recently changed to the tapas style and not as great as it was prior to changes) Ambiance was great except for a bit of noise/music spilling over from the bar side of the restaurant (we were seated in main dining room about 8:30/9 pm). We decided to have dessert elsewhere.
Overall, we are glad we checked Club Car off our list of restaurants to try, but probably won't choose to return on our next visit to Nantucket.

Second time dined there in two weeks. It was another great meal! The food and service are both excellent. They were very accommodating when we had to change our reservation twice! Our server was knowledgeable, upbeat and had a good sense of humor. We enjoyed all of our dishes and then went to the piano bar in "the club car" for some fun songs and cocktails.

Really terrific tapas. Portions are large and meant to be shared. The toasts are excellent! The only item that was just ok was the duck confit salad. But the restaurant is much prettier with the renovation. Definitely going back

While not out first visit to the new Club Car, it was our first time eating out during restaurant week on Nantucket. I will admit I was skeptical & yes the menu was a bit different from regular menu, but once again nothing we ordered disappointed. And may I remind you...the menu is gluten free! But don't let that scare you away...I bet you'd never know the diff! And did I say YUM!

The Club Car remains one of my favorite restaurants to dine at on Nantucket. The food is always the freshest and the flavor combinations are wonderful. I am a vegetarian and there were many excellent choices for me on the menu. The cocktails are deliciously crafted as well. Service is attentive and friendly. We'll be back in July!

My new favorite place. Chic little place that has so much charm. We were lucky enough to snag the round table in the back Food was OUTSTANDING. 15 small plates and 2 entrees and there was nothing I wouldn’t order again. The lamb skewers, the beets and the chicken are still on my mind. There was a great pacing to food service that allowed for conversation and gushing over the current dish. Definitely returning.

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!

Holy moly. This was the single best brunch we’ve ever had. The Spanish inspired menu lit our world on fire with such creativity and flavor. We were in ACK for a weekend family get away. Our kids 9 and 11 also found things they loved. My son loved the avocado toast with a fried egg and my daughter loved the tomato soup. We ordered the following and they were all amazing!!!

Pan con tomato (w Iberian ham)
Avocado toast
Lamb skewers
Tortilla espanola
Roasted cauliflower
Tacos al pastor
Yucca fries

And the most glorious surprise was how spectacular the Garden Variety drink (a pineapple jalapeño fusion style margarita)

The ambiance is beautiful and bright but cozy with a little modern flair. The music was so fun (think Led Zeppelin and Bowie)

We would seriously consider a day trip to nanatucket again just to have another brunch here. Wow. Just wow.

And we are total foodies for the record...

Very nice dinner! We had the Restaurant Week specials. My wife enjoyed the lamb skewers and generous carrot and beet salad. We both had artichokes with bagna caulda - delicious. Cod was very good. We dined at 6pm, so it started out quietly. By 6:30the restaurant was full, but we never felt rushed. Jess was an excellent server. She took care of us week and explained everything nicely.
