Great meal as usual. Shane and Nicole were fantastic and super-friendly during a crazy busy weekend. Food was fast and delicious. Highly recommended!

In the center of town. It has an outdoor patio as well as bar seating inside. Very good food and great service.

I like the Met line of restaurants. Good, solid food. And to be honest, the food at Met on Main in Nantucket is usually pretty good. Unfortunately, the service consistently lacks. I guess I must start by saying the new manager (Friday night of Daffodil Weekend) seemed very knowledgeable and has huge potential! For the rest of the staff, they're... More

After repeatedly telling ourselves we will never go there again, we unfortunately found ourselves there again on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Without going into detail the food, service and drinks were all awful. Actually the service was so bad that it was comical. Management should be embarrassed as that is how bad this place is. I would welcome a manger... More

Locals HATE it. From what I hear, the owner did everything wrong in opening a restaurant possible. And locals here, are UNFORGIVING when they don't like you, and willing to overlook anyone when they love you. Evidently this owner is not loved. From the same family of restaurants of the fallen angel Met Burger at Natick Collection (ABSOLUTELY GROSS), this... More

The Sunday evening Chicken dinner was absolutely amazing. The food is abundant and ridiculously good. The side dish of what they call Street Corn is truly amazing. Tried to get the spice mixture recipe, but no luck. The affordability of the dinner menu of such quality in such a nice setting was frankly, a surprise. The restaurant is beautiful inside.... More

We visited Met on Main for lunch and ordered the lobster roll special. While tasty, we were shocked to get a bill for $32 per roll. Waitress who did not mention the high price when we ordered, Later said she did not set prices. Rolls were very over priced and quite an unpleasant surprise.

We happened upon Met on Main on a Thursday night and took advantage of Taco Night. 3 decent sized tacos for $6. The fish tacos are fried and could have had a more creative dressing, but they were delicious nonetheless, and for $6, you can't beat it!
