Nantucket restaurant recommendations?

  • m

Next month my husband and I are going to Nantucket for a long weekend holiday. We've never been there, and friends of our who have visited can only offer out of date (by years) places.

So, does anybody have recommendations for good places to eat? It could be fancy or plain cuisine, breakfast, lunch, or dinner -- just want deliciousness. Does it even exist there?

  1. It's been a few years since I have frequented the island, so those with more current info will hopefully pipe up.

    "Does it even exist here?" Despite being 30 miles/3 hours out to sea, it very much does. You have many fine choices.

    The most highly reputed would be the renowned Chanticleer, which is in the charming (is it still?) hamlet of Siasconset (" 'Sconset") on the east side of the island, a few miles from the center of Nantucket town. Some prefer the bar area to the main dining room, by the way.

    21 Federal in Nantucket town has a long-standing fine reputation, too.
