Nantucket Questions

Spending a few days in Nantucket in August. I have reservations at the Pearl and the Straight Wharf. Looking for something casual for the other two nights. Would like to order in Lobsters one night-- any favorite spots to do that? The other night I was considering Black Eyed Susans, but the place I'm staying recommended Lo La 41 which is new... has anyone been to Lo La 41? Any thoughts on it?

Thank you!

  1. I used to live on Nantucket and have family still there. My sister has been to Lo La 41 and really likes it. She also likes Slip 14. A Nantucket tradition is the Brotherhood of the Thieves on Broad Street, just up from the ferry. Long lines but great burgers and drinks. Supposedly, Melville based his tavern on this place back when it was a whaling joint. Your best bet for getting lobsters already cooked at a price that won't break the bank is either Sayles or Gliddens. Lobstahs are lobstahs!
