When we are in Nantucket, this is our first evening dinner stop! The dinner selections are always "top choice" with nothing lost on your taste buds! Complements to the Chef! The atmosphere is relaxing and cozy. The wait staff is always attentive and polite. BE sure to make reservations for this great place!

Great location on a nice street in historic building ground floor. Service and good were great. Like everything on this island, it's a bit overpriced. But that's a fact you have to accept in Nantucket, where a mediocre sandwich costs $12. Menu has nice variety and a different take on local ingredients. Highly recommended.

Had reservations but didn't really need them in early May. Opens at 6:00 PM, a bit pricey but food was excellent.

Had a wonderful meal at American Seasons. The food is exquisite. The bread is delicious. The candle lighted atmosphere is relaxing and romantic. The staff is professional and friendly. Unusual to see muscovy duck on a menu. It was prepared perfectly. Desserts are creative. Bourbon ice cream!

We go here every year or so, but this year was the best dinner we've had there. I had no trouble finding gluten free dishes, From tuna tartare app, scallops, cod & halibut were had & everyone had only good things to say.

I've been going to Nantucket for years. Saturday night was the first time my husband, 9 month old, and I tried American Seasons. We waited way too long!!! First, the service was fantastic. The staff was very helpful, punctual, and friendly. Second, the food was just sooooo delicious! I got the cod and my husband got the arctic char. The... More

Have eaten here many times over the last twenty years through many owners. I don't come back every year because although the food has always been good and the service fine there is just something missing that makes the restaurant less than memorable. We walk out feeling we had a good meal but are in no great hurry to return.... More

As Nantucket regulars, we're used to Nantucket prices. But American Seasons, for all it's deliciousness, really falls short in providing sufficient portions for the price. We started with the tuna tartare appetizer, which was a special, and was a nice size and relatively good because of the fennel. But the tuna was a bit flavorless. For dinner, two in the... More

We ate at American Seasons on Sunday, 4/23/17. Its a very romantic restaurant, softly lite by candles. Or servers were professional and friendly. Our meals were delicious, especially the duck.

Best dining experience of the season for us. For Nantucket standards, too many times value doesn't deliver but it did here for us. Granted we were over 3 bills all said and done but walked away with respect. Bread service was best of recent travels, with precedence on presentation the portions suffer, wishing salad had more substance, scallop app was... More
