We've never been disappointed with Nancy's. they have plenty of options on their large menu, lots of nice servers, well made cocktails and good wine selection. Nancys is also within walking distance from Isabelle's beach house. Oak Bluffs has many restaurant choices. Nancys is a great choice for dinner with a nice view off the patio.

The views are great; service slow, but that's because this place is PACKED in the Summer. Typical of all resort towns, expect to pay top dollar for a drink and food. Nothing special. Just a fun place to unwind on the Vineyard.

Dinner was accompanied by a pianist which set an awesome mood! We started with a hazelnut, wild mushroom pate! Yum! Followed by a ginger lime salmon and a seared tuna entree! Both outstanding!

Enjoyed a delicious seafood lunch and wine at Nancy's. The atmosphere was friendly and pleasant, service superb and the seafood was hot, fresh and memorable! We had hope that we would see the President while dining since this is one of his favorite places but that didn't happen. We think we were either too early or too late because we... More

Everything was Ok. My wife and I visited mostly because we were hungry, and we'd heard that President Obama's daughter had worked here. As it turned out, the daughter worked at the restaurant for about 4 or 5 hours! Apparently, her presence created such a publicity mini-storm that the secret service got nervous and told her she couldn't show up... More

I had low expectations for this place because of the hype and recently Presidential visit but I was pleasantly surprised. It's a huge place right on the water and was incredibly busy even as we went in for a late lunch. I ordered the burrata mozzarella and it was incredible. The toast on the side was great but the burrata... More
