Nice setting, and renovations are holding up well. Food is good. However, the service is not good, and prices are very high even for Nantucket. We went with friends later in the evening and just wanted a burger. $28 is a lot for a burger-it...More

The Chanticleer has been in the top echelon of dinning experiences on Nantucket for decades. It did not disappoint during a late September visit. The setting has an old feel to it architecturally and artistically. The cuisine is consistently stellar. Our group sampled Brussels Sprouts...More

We love this gorgeous setting to have dinner or lunch. We often went for both meals each day. The only negative is that the menu doesn't ever change, so if you don't like what's on there, you're stuck. Excellent service and so professional. They really...More
