This was disappointing - I gave it a three as any restaurant on Nantucket is at least a 3 otherwise they wouldn't be in business. We came for dinner and were not impressed - dinner was ok and the waitress snickered because we didn't know...More

They do have a bouncer, I'm not quite sure what he screening for though. Got in with no problems. Very fun atmosphere on a week night for cocktails, very strong cocktails that is. There was a piano player singing show tunes and EVERYONE singing along....More

Change is hard for everyone, but the new team at the Club Car has done an excellent job updating what was a tired yet beloved mainstay. The new dining room is inviting, light and bright and the seating is super comfortable a much welcome change...More

Very sorry to see what happened to The Club Car. Does Nantucket really need another fancied up restaurant? No. I'll miss the Old (real) Club Car and won't be dining at the new.More

I can't tell you how many times over the years we passed by The Club Car and never once had a desire to eat there---- it was a traditional stuffy sort of place (granted, with regulars for many years). But after all, there's no outdoor...More

We've been to Nantucket a dozen times, but never ate at The Club Car, so I can't comment on the old place, but the "new" Club Car was wonderful. My husband and I stopped in for an early evening drink and, after seeing the menu,...More

The Club Car is an island institution re-imagined for the first time in 40 years. The restaurant’s classic railway car and antique elements are blended with eclectic, modern materials creating a fresh feel that balances old with new.

The Club Car’s understated sophistication exudes an approachable, carefree and convivial environment featuring a fun and boisterous bar with live piano that celebrates togetherness. The menu is inspired by California Cuisine with shared plates centered on vibrant vegetables and local seafood. The seasonal-based menu fosters local farmers, growers, fishermen and artisans.

Simply put, we love to eat and we love sharing food with others. This combination drives our passion to create and share authentic dishes that are intensely flavorful, naturally nourishing and always satisfying. When married with delicious drinks and close friends, The Club Car truly is the perfect place to gather.
