This waterfront locale, spacious dining room with a high vaulted ceiling, and the menu itself are all very impressive. It feels a bit Gatsby-esque. Be sure to dine here with someone special who loves really good food. Hopefully that special someone also likes to share,...More

We were visiting during Memorial Day weekend and it was crazy!! Crowds of 20-30 somethings all drinking way too much! We forced our way through the crowd to get into the restaurant and were seated out on the harbor in a quiet location. It was...More

Have been eating here for 10+ years. Always willing to put up with the hot interior and their loud and rollicking 'college' bar because their food was so good, but tonight they claimed to have no record of our reservation made 4 weeks ago and...More

The mains were very good. My app -chilled zucchini soup- had a rather thick consistency -more dip like than soup like. Swordfish was well prepared. And the apple galette dessert was very good. Decent atmosphere. Service was a little standoffish but it was restaurant week...

We spent a week in Nantucket and ate out quite often. But the food at Straight Wharf was, by far, the best that we had on the island. The restaurant is in a large, Nantucket-style building at the base of Straight Wharf. It is dock-side...More

Another great choice for Nantucket. We sat outside, and even on a gloomy evening, the aspect was beautiful. The food didn't disappoint. The menu had a nice selection of meats, in addition to the seafood you'd expect in Nantucket.

Overall I still really love this restaurant. My friends and I eat here at least twice a summer - once at the beginning in May/ Memorial Day, and once around Labor Day. What's good about this restaurant is that the staff seems completely turned on...More

Not really. Dressier than most restaurants on the island, as there were a few men in jackets, but not required. There were ladies in cute sundresses and men in golf shirts.../
