Downtown Nantucket, there’s an upscale restaurant on every block, most open only for dinner. Fine dining is a fun treat, but there’s no better way to start your day than with a delicious, well-cooked meal and friendly, welcoming service to fill your belly and warm your soul.
Escape to Sconset
In all of our travels, there are only a few restaurants we’ve come across that combine fine dining and the hospitality of home. These places of picture- perfect calm and comfort are hard to come by and should be treasured and remembered. The Chanticleer is one such restaurant—an oasis of fine dining.
A New Kind of Brotherhood
A lot has changed on
Nantucket in the past few
years, some for good and
some for not. But we like
to focus on the good. This
is why we couldn’t wait to
take a seat at the all-new
Brotherhood of Thieves
Something for Everyone on Easy Street
Featured Restaurant: Easy Street Cantina by C. Oscar Olson With all the restaurants on Nantucket—and there are many—there are very few that can please every patron and every palate. There are even fewer that can provide ample seating for the whole family, be it indoors or out on a spacious […]
Perfect Pairings & Plentiful Plates
Though we’ve been out to sea for years and years, it seems there is always something new to lay our eyes on. A new place to spot the sunset or a new beach to dip our toes into. Or, better yet, a restaurant new to us (but not new) where we can enjoy some fantastic culinary creations and libations.
Inventive, Inspired, and Seriously Good
The old adage suggests
saving the best for last, and
there’s certainly wisdom in
that. The best should be studied
and savored. The best
takes time to truly understand
and appreciate. But time is
fleeting, which is why we enjoyed
the best as our first Featured

A Meal You Can’t Beat
Café culture has become a beloved part of our island experience. Autumn evenings are still warm enough to be comfortable at sidewalk tables, and the island’s balmy October days add to the fun of sitting outside for lunch and late afternoon cocktails. With more than half-a-dozen restaurants offering inviting sidewalk dining complete with romantic bistro lights draped overhead, umbrellas, pretty plantings, and enticing aromas, you might think it hard to choose. It’s not: walk past the others and head to The Beet at 9 South Water Street.
The Most Wonderful Dine of the Year
We love this time of year. As September rolls in, the crowds thin, the ocean is still warm, and the sun shines down on the long and lingering last days of summer. What’s more, it means we can score a table at a much-loved island eatery: Black Eyed Susan’s.
