I happened to walk by one night and saw this restaurant beautifully lit with candle light and decided it would be a nice place for dinner. I was there right after the summer season so they had just put out a new menu. I ordered two dishes, a mushroom "salad" with duck confit and a runny egg yolk- I wanted... More

This is one of those places where you can tell there is so much knowledge and love of food and wine when you walk in the door and look at the menu. Everything is made from scratch and all the veggies come from the local gardens.

My absolute favorite restaurant to dine, or just hang at the bar with a small plate. I love being in the front room overlooking Nantucket harbor

We walked to the wharf for dinner with a reservation. Be prepared to reaffirm res. the day before visit. Golden local oysters fabulous as well as complimentary bluefish pate.The clambake dinner even with some lobster did not quite live up to expectation. Service was accomplished by waiters dressed in grey who were both polite and expert. View of the wharf... More

We were fortunate to get a table on a Friday night in September. Three of us had a bit of a wait despite our reservation and the bar was closed to a private party so we started off a little rough. Once we were seated our entire outlook changed. The wait staff was a bit overwhelmed, seeming to be fewer... More

We were fortunate enough to eat dinner in both the casual and the fine dining restaurants; both get rave reviews for our excellent fish dinners! The oyster appetizers were the best, as well as the swordfish! We will be back on our next visit.

Arrived to find that the menu was special for Restaurant Week - 3 courses for a prix fixe. Harpooned swordfish on a bed of raisins, carrots, onions, pine nuts and radicchio was outstanding, as were the dayboat scallops. The pear and celery salad was very generous and delicious. The only disappointment was the chèvre cheesecake which was a bit bland,... More

When reading the menu I wasn't blown away as it sells it self short for what is delivered. The food is excellent but the clam bake which is more a lobster bake is awesome. Service was brilliant, however wine list is pricey and overall a little expensive but by far best restaurant in Nantucket.
