Have eaten here on a couple of visits to Nantucket. The food is fabulous, nice variety of choices and everything from apps to desert really good! It's BYOB and everyone does. Stop at the liquor store on Main St before you go. Also a good...More

Really like this place. Small quaint interior. Also - outdoor seating. Chicken dish is great, goat cheese tart is wonderful, salmon was really good. Don't love the Thai shrimp because there are only 4 shrimp which is skimpy compared to the rest of the portions....More

This place was recommended by a couple at our bed and breakfast. Food was very good, as well as the service. As mentioned it is dog friendly. You need to bring your own wine but we consider that a good thing. Most places on Nantucket...More

Our tour guide recommended this locally-owned eatery and we opted to relax in the quiet dining room rather than out front on the sidewalk. Good sandwiches, creative menu.
