Just came across this when we were hungry, ex Caesar salad and lobster spaghetti, sat outside in shade but interiors looked lovely too.

Girls trip in September. Our first time to Nantucket. We were first attracted to the Boarding House by it’s lovely, cozy outdoor seating area...made even better with heaters for a slightly cloudy, chilly day. Cocktails were delicious. Struggled to choose from all of the amazing items on the brunch/lunch menu. Cornbread with maple butter was the best I’ve ever had. Crab rangoons were smooth, creamy and obviously made with fresh crabmeat. The special tuna tartare tacos were perfect. Persy, our waiter, was attentive, quick to serve, and engaging. Don’t let negative reviews dissuade you from trying here. Everyone has an off night, but this place is not to be missed!

Called in for brunch with 2 friends and could not have been more delighted. The service was excellent, our waiter Persy was so welcoming and friendly. We ordered 5 dishes which we each shared. Every one was delicious and fresh with so many wonderful flavors. Great fusion inspired meals. The mini tuna tartare tacos were incredible! Would highly recommend! Sitting on the patio was awesome, heaters took off the slight early fall chill. Inside is beautiful and unique. Don’t miss this place.

Lovely last night in Nantucket at this restaurant, sat on the porch and the food was good. Good size portion of chicken milanese and we enjoyed the corn bread sharer. Our Serbian waiter was lovely and the dessert of cookies and milkshakes was AMAZING!! Only downside was the price of the wine, both bottles and glasses which were very expensive. Coming from the U.K. we thought this somewhat of an oversight as surely they know that people would buy more if the prices were cheaper? Similarly the local liquor store sold reasonably priced wine so it can’t just be an island thing?
Apart from this it was great :) go for the dessert!
