Nantucket: Where To Eat

i seriously can not believe it's friday - this week has FLOWN by. we still have a couple more days so i'm not going to rush them. for real though i could stay here for a month and eat my way through this island. so many good restaurants and little sandwich places, it's incredible! this is not going to be a comprehensive list by any means but i've gathered my own little list of island spots that we keep returning to plus a few new ones. would love to hear your favorites too!


fog island cafe - this is right on the main drag and admittedly doesn't look like much but we crave the eggs benedict here.

downy flake - homemade donuts and lots of eggs made a zillion ways.

black eyed susan's - always a wait but for good reason.

island kitchen - breakfast to die for and also the most delicious ice cream.

provisions - our favorite egg sandwich on island. something about that tomato jam and herbed egg is just so good!

lunch/sandwiches to go:

something natural - ginormous yummy sandwiches with a great area for kids to play. do not miss the chocolate chip cookies here!

fresh - in town, hubs is a big fan of their sandwiches.

claudettes - 'sconset's sandwich stop - super cute with limited outdoor seating.

lemon press - out of this world avocado toast.

the green - healthy and organic options.

45 surfside - cute stop on the way to surfside beach with some seating.

yummy nantucket - all to-go sandwiches and also has milkshakes/ice cream.

sandbar at jetties - awesome new place right on the beach with a great drink list and good comfort food. try the ultimate grilled cheese!

dinner with kids:

brant point grill - at the white elephant hotel so dressier but we go every year with the boys, eat early, and let them run around on the lawn. definitely go when you can eat outside!

brotherhood of thieves - pub fare with a decent kids menu.

millie's - mexican in madaket. also take out and go watch the most amazing sunsets on madaket beach.

keepers - family friendly, just out of town and gets great reviews.

lola burger - gourmet burgers and beer.

nantucket prime - at the jared coffin house and also great for lunch outside.

pi pizzeria - great pizza to eat there or take out.

dinner without kids:

galley beach - dining on the beach and a place to see and be seen. 😉

toppers - at the wauwinet and views for days. we had a great anniversary meal there last year.

club car - underwent a major transformation and redesign and looks absolutely amazing!

the nautilus - never been but looks fun and casual

56 union - same as above. out of town a bit but supposed to be very yum.

greydon house - new this year and A-MA-ZING! we had the best meal there. get the gnocchi appetizer. plus the design is really pretty.

lola 41 - specializing in sushi and it's pretty tiny (but cute!). you technically can bring kids although there's no kids menu and you get to sit out back by the dumpster. 😜

cru - fun, casual and a seafood lovers paradise.

ventuno - italian, homemade pasta right downtown.

dune - fresh menu with lots of locally sourced ingredients. great broad st. location.

oran mor - the first restaurant we ever went to on nantucket. cute upstairs bar.


the juice bar - four words: ice cream cookie sandwiches.

island kitchen - as previously mentioned, delish ice cream (try the banana cream pie) which they also serve at surfside beach!

petticoat row bakery - in the heart of it all with a great selection of cookies.

nantucket bake shop - never been but sounds wonderful!


stop and shop - not much to say here other than it's always packed! there are two locations but the one out of town is much better.

bartlett farm - fresh, yummy, and expensive. ;) just down from cisco brewery.

cowboy - butcher with an amazing selection of rose for those interested (me!!).
