Sophie T's Pizza is a quintessential mom 'n' pop style joint that serves the obvious pizzas and hearty burgers, subs and salads. They offer a good variety of pizza with interesting combination of toppings and the portions are large enough to go around the table. The specialty meat-lovers pizza and the "Chef's Choices" are a must-try. The service is great and very often you can see the owners catching-up with the regular patrons. Great place to bring your friends and family, but if you are planing a take-out, call in advance to reduce wait time.

Fifty-Six Union is a great place to forget the calorie counter and just indulge! Like most other restaurants in Nantucket this is a seafood joint that offers the best in local as well as global fare. The restaurant has a casual and lively atmosphere and diners can choose an indoor table, which is a more classy setting, or the outdoor patio where the atmosphere is festive and light.

Just a mile's drive from the town, Galley Beach, a chic restaurant tucked in the sand dunes and ocean waves, is where you can enjoy gourmet cuisine while watching the sun go down.

The menu is updated regularly to incorporate daily catch and also seasonal specials. However, the creamy Clam Chowder and the seasonal salads come highly recommended. On a warm evening, guests can share an intimate conversation while sipping some great drinks at their indoor lounge.

The casual bar menu serves such fare as Black Angus cheeseburger with garlic fries, Roasted Rare Kobe Ribeye, Lobster Bisque and Pan-Seared Lobster. You may also eat in the outdoor gardens, which opens in July. The upstairs dining rooms are more formal and the food, such as Pan roasted lobster and Grilled rare block cut tuna, reflects this. Reservations are needed for the dining rooms but not the café or gardens. All offer a full array of beer and has a very impressive wine list.
Something Natural is just that. Fresh natural ingredients piled between two world famous Portuguese white breads and what you have is nothing short of a leaning tower. The locals rave about this institution for its great value and variety. Something Natural is a fair walk out of town, so renting bikes (Young's Bicycle Shop) would be wise.
