Nantucket Restaurant Reviews
For such a tiny island, Nantucket is laden with great restaurants—"world class" would not be an exaggeration. Of course, with New York-level sophistication come New York-level prices. And whereas the titans of industry who flock here for a bit of high-rent R&R might not blink at the prospect of a $40 or even $50 entrée, the rest of us may suppress a nervous gulp. Is it worth it? Again and again, in many venues, the answer is yes.
Reservations can be hard to come by in high season, or during popular weekends such as December's Christmas Stroll and the Daffodil Festival in April, so plan and make dinner reservations well ahead. You may still be able to squeeze into a popular establishment at the last minute if you're willing to eat unfashionably early or decadently late. Restaurants tend to drop days from their schedules in the shoulder seasons, so call ahead to check the hours of operation in any month other than July or August.
