Been here a couple of times, once for dinner & once for lunch. Both were good experiences. The menu offers a lot of selection, and they are known for their in-house made desserts........which are HUGE. If you go on specific days (Tuesdays?), and you spend a certain amount, then dessert may be free.......be sure to ask! You can also get... More

First the surprise. After I had my delicious lemon chicken with spinach and mashed potatoes with gravy and mushrooms, the waitress told me you get a free half slice of cake and there were 8 choices, I believe. Not only was the meal great but you can get a smaller size, which I did, and it was a gracious plenty.... More

A popular Durham , NC restaurant at both locations. I know they have a popular catering service also. No reservations on Saturday night so one might expect a wait. However, there is ample outdoor seating . An informal atmosphere and a bit noisy. The personnel are most friendly. The menu has a wide variety of steaks , sandwiches ,hamburgers, fish... More

Since I work here in Sutton Station, I've eaten here for lunch several times, and everything has been great. Being a former Mainah, I was especially happy to see a lobster roll on the menu. And our office orders cakes for birthday celebrations...very tasty!

The crab dip is always our go to appetizer. This trip I decided on the crab cake which I was pleasantly surprised with. My husband had the ribs with only a dry rub. They were fall off the bOne good and very juicy. The tomato basil soup is amazing and so is the strawberry shortcake.

The fish dinner was ok but not particularly fresh. The fish sandwich was made of small fish "fingers" and a Huge roll! 4 adults & 2 children and everything just average. We all tried the cake. It looked great and was ok.

Had lunch here today because we had an appointment nearby. We both had the lobster bisque but were not impressed. I had the pastrami on rye and my mom had the BLT. Her bacon was plentiful but burnt. My son had chicken fingers but was disappointed that it was so much breading. Our server however was great!

I visited with friends who go there frequently. The surroundings are pleasant and the staff friendly. I had shrimp with fries which was rather good. The others had ravioli and grilled chicken. Both of these looked rather good. Portions were large as they often are in the US, though not huge. It being Tuesday, we were entitled to a free... More

I am new to the area and while talking with my coworkers at lunch, they suggested that as this restaurant was close to where i was staying i should try it out. They did warn me about the size of the servings of cake, but i was not really expecting how big the cakes were in real life. Anyway, I... More

My wife and I stopped in Durham on our way to Winston-Salem to have lunch with an old friend. The friend picked The Nantucket Grill as convenient to our travel route; it was a restaurant he and his late wife had patronized at one time but I gathered he had not been there recently. The restaurant was very noisy making... More
