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. You can even pull up a chair at the Bistro Bar and chat up with the fun-loving owners Wendy and Peter. The Tasting Menu is reasonably priced and is a great way to sample a wide range of the chef's creations. Open hours vary by season.
The spacious A.K. Diamond offers its patrons a pleasant dining experience in a casual, laid-back atmosphere. The pub-style joint is the best place where friends and family can gather to eat, drink and be merry. The owners are warm and fun-loving, and make guests feel at home immediately. The decor is fuss-free, the food is unpretentious, and the portions are large-all in all this place is great value-for-money.
Slip 14 is an upscale, sophisticated restaurant where you can savor the best of the island's fish and seafood varieties. The indoor dining area has a soothing interior and is a perfect place to grab a bite or a refreshing drink after a shopping spree. The covered outdoor area is separated from the street by just a fence, so you can hang out and watch people go by. The menu is extensive and they offer the best chowder clams in town, along with some delicious, pretty-to-look-at deserts.
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.
This family-owned and operated restaurant has three dining options: a romantic, candlelit cellar dining room, a cocktail bar/bistro (a favorite among locals and return visitors), and, during warmer months, an outdoor patio.

The restaurant and bar are open year round. Lunch served in season. The proprietors also operate the upscale and innovative Pearl.
This cozy, high-energy, open-kitchen restaurant seats only 32 patrons. You can either sit by the grill and watch, as your meal is prepared or try to get a reservation for a table at this often packed restaurant. The best way to get a reservation is in person. The ethnically inspired, international dinner menu changes every two to three weeks, but Caesar salad, angel hair pasta and linguine with clams are always available. The breakfast menu includes eggs and omelets, pancakes and sourdough French toast with orange Jack Daniels butter and pecans. Outside dining is available. Please note that credit cards are not accepted.
The Brotherhood is a cozy bar/restaurant offering "Good food, good drink and good company," or so it says on the sign hanging outside. An extensive drink menu accompanies, or upstages, the pub grub menu, which features extra thick sandwiches, chowder, Brotherhood fries and hamburgers; super sized. Live entertainment, offered on the weekends in the off-season and daily in season, is one of the big draws. Another is the relaxed, festive atmosphere, worthy of the line that snakes down Broad Street in season.
The proprietors of Boarding House opened this restaurant, which features a creative seafood menu, an extensive wine and champagne list and the unique chef's garden tasting table where as many as eight guests may enjoy a private view into the state-of-the-art kitchen. Selections from the dinner menu include crab spring rolls with carrot wakame slaw and sweet and sour dipping sauce, a martini of yellowfin tuna, creme Fraiche, wasabi, tobiko and sesame, soft shell crabs and wild striped bass with local lobster & rouille. Call for reservations.

Nautical decor, steaming bowls of chowder and fresh local seafood-what more would you expect from a place with a name like Cap'n Tobey's? The chowder is good enough to be a meal in itself, or you can have a cup along with an entrée. House specialties include tender lobster and succulent Nantucket Bay scallops. There is also an extensive salad bar but no matter what you order for dinner, be sure to leave room for Indian pudding. This very popular establishment has a full service bar.
