Description: You wouldn't believe you weren't sitting near the ocean in New England. Located in the heart of downtown Greenville, across from the Peace Center for Performing Arts, everything about Nantucket inspires a feeling of deep satisfaction. Picture rich walnut-stained wood, elegant yet warm lighting, natural earth-tone colors, and the delicate mingling of fine wine, laughter and conversation. Nantucket is that rare destination that is at once relaxing and entertaining...Intimate and open...Romantic and engaging. Long, panoramic windows extend alongside the inviting bar and dining area to afford views of the Village Green and the courtyard patio, complete with a towering, artfully crafted, lighted stone waterfall.

The food - crispy oysters were amazing, seafood trio (lobster / crabcake / scallops on risotto) was sterling, wife's black grouper was also terrific. Martini was made just right (a rarity in my tough league for martini makers). Wine list accommodated quality by-glass selections. I emailed a request in advance that they make a small gesture (no singing, no candles, please!) in honor of my wife's birthday, and we were greeted with a verbal recognition of the event, given a wonderful circular booth seating for just us two, then saw that the menu had a note in it wishing her happy birthday; and they topped it off with a complimentary creme brulee (very creamy - one of my favorites, and done very well). Our server was knowledgeable, prompt, not overbearing, just right for a special night out. Highly recommend it for a special occasion, or from what we saw of the other clientele on a weekday evening, an expense account be damned business dinner!

Food - Atmosphere - Service were all Superb! We actually had Mr Rick Erwin the owner stop by our table and ask how we were and could they improve on anything! I have been to each one of the brand restaurants and they are all good but this one was the best! Lobster tail and Filet was what I ordered and it was great!

My husband and I spent 2 nights in Greenville after travelling the Parkway for 10 days. We were pretty road weary, but this restaurant was recommended by our hotel and it did not disappoint. In fact we came back the 2nd night since it was also within walking distance from our hotel. Both evenings, we ate in the bar by choice. I had a "small plate", which was totally adequate. My husband is a big fan of mussels and loved them. There are lots of good choices of restaurants downtown, but this place fit us perfectly.

We did not reserve in advance, taking a chance they would find a table for two. The hostess greeted us warmly and assured we could get a table. We elected for a table outside in the courtyard, it was a beautiful evening to eat al fresco particularly considering it is November.
Our waitress, Celina, was absolutely brilliant, attentive without being intrusive, she had the most beautiful smile!

Her colleagues who assisted we equally good. The service was matched by the quality of the food, we are so glad we opted for the smaller options.

We would return in a heartbeat, but this is one for special occasions!

From the moment we walked in we're made to feel as if we were royalty. It was our 28th anniversary and the staff made us feel as if we were the only guests. The food was superb and the atmosphere great for a romantic night. Our waitress Ashton was so friendly we left feeling like we made a new friend. The extra efffort to make us feel special rates as one of the best experiences we have had at a dining establishment..
