We miss the old menu and the old club car. It was very difficult to find anything on the menu that we liked. We had to look up the names of most of the spices since we had never heard of them. I don't know...More

Hello MärzMarz. Thank you for your review. We feel that the former staff at the Club Car did such a great job at perfecting the lobster roll that we decided to do our own thing. We serve fresh fish, meats and vegetables from as close...More

I recently spent a Saturday night at the Club Car bar. It was extremely fun!! I haven't been there in quite a number of years. Apparently it is under new ownership and they have re-done the bar and the restaurant to make it a little...More

The Club Car had always had a piano bar scene in the bar area. But after a lovely space renovation and a great new menu and competent staff, it is a shame that such great food is shouted down by the alcohol fueled post-adolescent wedding...More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that your dinner was interrupted by awful singing at the piano. Unfortunately, not all of us should be belting out tunes we cannot carry! We have since started the piano an hour later than what was done...More

I've always been a fan of the former Club Car, and will remember it fondly. The new owners could not have brought a better offering to Nantucket though! The food is healthy and flavorful. The drinks are delicious, and the staff is completely on point....More

Have to hit this bar at least once every time I am on the island! It gets really crowded, especially in the back near the piano. But everybody is friendly and tons of fun as they sing along with the piano player (who takes requests).

Really fun place! There's usually a piano player and everyone sings along. Usually a great time! Gets super crowded at times.

Description
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.
