Overnight stop on our way to the beach. Food was good, I ordered fried shrimp, husband ordered seafood pasta. Wait staff was timely and polite. Ate here because it was close to our hotel. Would come again if passing through.

Had a quiet dinner on half-price wine night. Had the salmon grilled with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Very good and delivered hot. Server was very efficient and patient with the jerk at the neighboring table. I give it 5 based on overall quality and value....More

Have been to Nantucket three times for lunch. Sat at bar and had horrible service. Sad for me as I wanted to like them. They have a good menu but service is lacking.

I had been here a few years back and it was always good. Today, driving by Chapel Hill, we turned in for lunch. The place looks the same, but now you get the menu as you enter, then step in to place your order and...More
