I've been coming to Nantucket for years and have never been to The Hen House. My parents were with me and suggested it. It is tucked away a bit out of the main town. It had many locals in it. The decor was unique and...More

Not only was the waitress incredibly bad (she messed up my order and never fixed it), but half-way through eating my meal I found the longest, thickest, most disgusting curly black hair in my meal—it was not a head hair, let's leave it at that....More

They open early, unlike some places in town. It is not in town so not so many tourist but worth the walk or drive. We sat outside, it was a nice sunny day, great spot. Food was good, service quick and attentive. Prices were reasonable...More

Had the steak and eggs, along with an eye-popping Bloody Mary! Great service, really friendly, good food and prices are reasonable. It's also one of the few places on Nantucket to get food late at night ('til 2AM). Bar opens at 8AM if you need...More

A gem hidden across the way from Stop & Shop mid-island. My family and I have made it a point to visit the Hen House several times during each of our visits to Nantucket for the past few years. They do both breakfast and lunch,...More
