Same menu as Nantucket grill on Fayetteville Road, here you order at the counter than they give you a number. Bring your order an you good to go. Not as many deserts to end the meal with. It is a good location for a lunch break.

Nantucket is a general american food lunch stop. The food is hit and miss, but overall it is of decent quality and flavor. Their clam chowder is outstanding, and BLT is a good value. Don't leave without trying some of their cake which is the best in the area.

Good place for salads made to order. Low key, and there is only a staff to serve. You are expected to serve yourself your beverage and to clean up your plates.

We had a small business meeting with representatives of UNC. This place was highly recommended and we enjoyed our visit here. We will return.

Havent been here for dinner but the lunches are very good, large portions and very tasty. Lots of parking in the adjoining lot. Worth stopping here.

I really want to like the food, but it's just average. I've given this place 6-8 chances over the last couple of months, but I walk away every time regretting eating there. The food is just average no matter what I order for lunch. I do like the atmosphere and the outdoor seating, but I could have spent less money... More

Nice casual place to take your friends. Salads, chicken strips, and clam chowder very good. Atmosphere is good. Service was just okay. All in all I'd go again.

They have great burgers and pasta, but the best is the humongous cakes! At lunch, they put free samples out. At least one night a week, you get a free dessert with dinner. Very workwhile!

Outrageous price for a medium to poor burger. Not our choice of places to go in Chapel Hill. While we could walk there, we won't return for dinner.
