Dinner was delicious and attractively presented. The Quahog Chowder is the best! Our Server Suzie was wonderful.

After being seated we had to wait a bit for our server to arrive. Once he did we were informed we only had 1 1/2 hr to eat. Which we weren’t told that upon entering. I ordered a bottle of wine($175), my friend a martini and oysters Rockefeller. They were just ok. We followed with a salad which was fresh and tasty. Next I had the filet, which didn’t need the breading on top. It was cooked perfectly. Now dinner wasn’t served until 6:35. We only had until 7 to be done. Then we told we could get dessert to go but couldn’t get it our time was up. The servers attitude sure changed when it was time to leave. That part was disappointing.

We frequent this restaurant often. Truly enjoy the food, atmosphere and people who work there. The bar area is our favorite spot to dine but it’s been difficult to eat at the bar since the opening after Covid. Too many people vying for too few seats I guess! Will have to wait until tourist season ends in the Fall. In any case a must go-to restaurant!

A friends recommendations for dinner included Nantuckets for celebrating my wife's 60th birthday. Our 7:30pm reservations were waiting, service was excellent, food was good and so was the little birthday treat at the end of the night. 🤗

We dined with a couple of good friends from out of town who were celebrating their anniversary. We couldn’t be more pleased. After a brief wait for our reserved table, we were seated. Ordered speciality drinks that were top notch the Brie appetizer was a great item to share and it was scrumptious. We had the halibut special, the lobster shepherds pie and the bouillabaisse. Everything was spectacular. Our server Chris was one of the best waiters we have ever had, anywhere. He was attentive, friendly, helpful and spoke loudly and distinctly for us to hear. Our friends were very impressed and my husband and I will be sure to come back on our own next time we are in the area.

Great restaurant! We sat at a high top in the bar area (no standing bar customers just now), made reservations as suggested. Our server Ralph was very knowledgeable and made good recommendations. We really enjoyed the NY strip and the Skillet baked Cod. The peach/ blueberry cobbler was amazing. Highly recommend!

We love it. We have loved it since friends recommended it in 1989.
Only wish they would bring back their smoked melange (a collection of smoked fish for an appetizer).
Of course we will be back!!

We love everything about this restaurant!!! Our waiter Bryan was exceptional. Food was amazing as usual. Atmosphere always inviting & warm. This is our go to for all special occasions or just to have a fantastic meal. Everyone is so friendly.
It was a nice surprise that it was Wine Wednesdays since we always enjoy a great bottle of wine with dinner. We have a condo in Ocean City & this is our favorite restaurant to frequent.

Perfect way to celebrate a girlfriend reunion! Everything was outstanding and exceeded expectations from the moment we walked in. Warm welcome, sat quickly (did have reservations), service was on point...friendly and fast. Shrimp and grits plus tempura fried artichokes and crab were the perfect beginning followed by fish, crab and duck entrees. Capped it all off with chocolate rum cake and creme brulee. Best Blood Orange Crushes around. Thanks for a wonderful evening. Can't wait to return!

Everything about Nantucket’s is a delight: the food is superb, worthy of any fine dining establishment in a large city and better than most; the service is welcoming, friendly, professional and unobtrusive; the setting is upscale kitch and the prices are very affordable for the experience. Surely the best casual yet fine dining experience in the Ocean City, Delaware lower shore area.

We had a reservation for 7pm and we were seated at 7:10. The restaurant was a little chaotic and busy.
We waited 10 minutes for someone to come to our table to take our drink orders. Martinis were very good and not too expensive for resort town. $10. Our order wasn’t taken when the waitress bought our drinks. She had to run and said she would be back. She came back 15 minutes later. I asked for bread when I ordered and that didn’t come for 15 more minutes. Our dinner entrees arrived 45 minutes after we ordered. We did not order any appetizers or dessert. The entire dinner took 2 hours. I was afraid to order a dessert because it might take 30 minutes to receive. Susie, our waitress was overwhelmed. I would of appreciated a manager coming over to apologize for the delay. Or maybe a complimentary drink but nothing. On a positive note, the entrees were very good.

This is a friendly, cozy restaurant with a traditional, casual, yet appropriate approach to your beach town dining experience. The property is well maintained and immaculate inside and out. The food is delicious -- well presented. Their dinner specials were enticing, but I opted for the crab cakes -- which were amazing. Friendly, polite, attentive servers. We were very pleased with our first experience at Nantucket's! We'll be back!
