Cap'n Tobey's Chowder House 20 Straight Wharf, Nantucket, MA 02554-3537 The restaurant is gone.... closed, boarded.....

Service was TERRIBLE!!!!! Slow, and when we complained about our disgusting appetizer she did not do anything to help the matter. Our enter and out an HOUR late. Do NOT done here. What a disgusting disgrace. Go to Slip 14, The Tavern, or ANYWHERE else!! Learn from our mistake.
