Enjoyed a wonderful summer lunch with the family in their enchanting garden. Year after year, this is one of our favorite restaurants on Nantucket (where too many dining venues charge well in excess of what they deliver). Well worth the trip to Sconset.

Perfect experience for a quiet romantic evening. The chef's attention to detail and inventiveness with food made the dinner far better than expected.

I fell in love with this restaurant first I entered - nice garden area is just perfect for a romantic dinner. There are 2 dining rooms inside, a casual bar area and a bright room with a lot of windows. Food was delicious and service was great. Will definitely go back next Summer!

Always celebrate my birthday with a special dinner at Chanticleer and this year was no exception. Started with a bottle of Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rose $65 paired with the Local Smoked Blue Fish Pate $12 which was delicious. Especially the home made hand sliced garlic chips. My entree was the Tandoori Seasoned King Salmon on Waygu Smoked Brisket... More

A magical location with beautiful outdoor seating (seasonally). Romantic lighting and atmosphere combined with top notch service and food make this a must visit when on island.

My wife & I have dined at several of the best rated Nantucket restaurants during a one week, post Labor Day getaway. Our favorite meal by a healthy margin was tonight at Chanticleer in Sconset. We both ordered grilled swordfish on a bed of mushrooms & spaetzle. The fish was fresh, moist & generous in size - excellent in every... More

My wife took me to The Chanticleer for dinner to celebrate my birthday. This is really a wonderful restaurant and I highly recommend it. The venue is very "old French" and absolutely charming. The service could not have been better and the food was outstanding (I recommend the swordfish). This is really a must if you are visiting Nantucket. If... More

We went to The Chanticleer for launch on the quite afternoon at the end of the busy summer season. Garden area really looked like and old, charming French restaurant. Service was good, but the food was big disappointment. We started with corn soup. It sounded so delicious while our server was describing it, but it was nothing but a sweet... More
