We had high expectations for our first dinner at Club Car. Being a vegetarian, I am often disappointed by the lack of choice on menus. So naturally I was intrigued by the Garden section of Club Car's menu. My husband, an omnivore with a discerning...More

The remodel has taken away all the ambiance, quaintness and charm of The Club Car. Now it's just another contemporary bar with a contemporary menu and you could be anywhere in the US. We've enjoyed Nantucket for over 30 years but this trip will be...More

This is a good place for a photo op, but the menu and prices were not what I was expecting. It's not the one featured on Wings!

Loved our meal-- great choice for friends who like to share! Great tapas... inventive flavors, and beautiful presentations. Favorites include the beet toast and crispy potatoes. Cod was delicious, but the fluke stole the show. Must experience with a complete bite-- tiny taste of everything...More

The Club Car is an island institution re-imagined for the first time in 40 years. The restaurant’s classic railway car and antique elements are blended with eclectic, modern materials creating a fresh feel that balances old with new.

The Club Car’s understated sophistication exudes an approachable, carefree and convivial environment featuring a fun and boisterous bar with live piano that celebrates togetherness. The menu is inspired by California Cuisine with shared plates centered on vibrant vegetables and local seafood. The seasonal-based menu fosters local farmers, growers, fishermen and artisans.

Simply put, we love to eat and we love sharing food with others. This combination drives our passion to create and share authentic dishes that are intensely flavorful, naturally nourishing and always satisfying. When married with delicious drinks and close friends, The Club Car truly is the perfect place to gather.
