Nantucket Restaurant Guide - 2018

Nantucket Restaurant Guide Cover

Whether you’re looking for a lobster roll and a cup of chowder to go, an ice cream cone after a day at the beach, or five-star dining, you can satisfy all those appetites on Nantucket. Peruse the sample menus within to find your kind of restaurant.

Nantucket boasts more fine-dining establishments per capita than many metropolitan areas, making dining out a popular pastime, especially in the summer months.

While Nantucket has numerous restaurants, which range from casual snack and sandwich shops to formal dining, they can all become crowded during the season. Getting a reservation during the height of July and August can be difficult if you have not booked far enough in advance. It is wise to book up to one week ahead for reservations on the weekends. Holiday weekends also require advance booking. At the same time, please be sure to give at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel your reservation.

Casual evening dress in many restaurants means polo shirts and khakis for men, and summer slacks or dresses for women. Formal wear means jackets for men, though ties are hardly ever worn on Nantucket. Jeans and shorts are acceptable during the daytime at the more casual sandwich and snack shops, but athletic wear, bathing suits and skimpy tops are never appropriate at island restaurants. Even the most casual places have a rule: No shirt, no shoes, no service.

Cell phones are banned in almost all island restaurants. If you must carry your phone with you, please turn the ringer off, and excuse yourself from your table if you must take or place a call.

Restaurants are listed alphabetically below.
