We had heard that the restaurant here offered good food and that the evening piano bar scene was one of the liveliest on Nantucket. We only dropped in for night-caps in the bar our last night in town and found a lively, sophisticated crowd, good...More

Can’t say enough about this restaurant. The food and service were truly exceptional. Get the artichoke, the squash and the broccolini. They were over the top fabulous. Cod was also great. I didn’t love the fritters but they were fine. If I ever came back...More

Ok let’s be honest. Everyone likes karaoke but rarely has the courage to participate unless away from your home turf. Lively Friday night spot.

This is not your typical seafood restaurant. It has a very european feel...the food is some of the most flavorful I've ever eaten. Unusual dishes. The clam chowder was excellent, as it is almost anywhere one goes in the region. their spicy Thai shrimp was...More

The Club Car is an island institution re-imagined for the first time in 40 years. The restaurant’s classic railway car and antique elements are blended with eclectic, modern materials creating a fresh feel that balances old with new. The Club Car’s understated sophistication exudes an approachable, carefree and convivial environment featuring a fun and boisterous bar with live piano that celebrates togetherness. The menu is inspired by California Cuisine with shared plates centered on vibrant vegetables and local seafood. The seasonal-based menu fosters local farmers, growers, fishermen and artisans. Simply put, we love to eat and we love sharing food with others. This combination drives our passion to create and share authentic dishes that are intensely flavorful, naturally nourishing and always satisfying. When married with delicious drinks and close friends, The Club Car truly is the perfect place to gather.
