Chose Straight Wharf based on reviews by others. I was slightly disappointed. Ordered the swordfish and the clambake. The clambake is totally unshelled and presented - probably why I didn't think it seemed bountiful. The swordfish was good. The view is limited on the deck...More

This is one of those places where you can tell there is so much knowledge and love of food and wine when you walk in the door and look at the menu. Everything is made from scratch and all the veggies come from the local...More

My absolute favorite restaurant to dine, or just hang at the bar with a small plate. I love being in the front room overlooking Nantucket harbor
