Fathom Favorites : Nantucket Restaurants

1. The Proprietors Bar & Table

One of the newer restaurants in the neighborhood, the restaurant's menu is inspired by sailors returning home from their travels. Delightful plates like quail tikka masala and kim-chee pancakes are globally inspired and highlight local ingredients.

9 India St.
Nantucket, MA 02554

2. Black-Eyed Susan's

Feeding delicious breakfasts to locals and visitors for more than two decades. Lines are long, but see if you can score a seat in the cozy patio out back.

10 India St.
Nantucket, MA 02554

3. Nantucket Pharmacy

And old-school 1929 lunch counter and soda fountain open year round. Go for a milkshake and stay for the local gossip.

45 Main St.
Nantucket, MA 02554

4. Nativ Made

A delicious and healthy variety of organic salads and cold-pressed juices that are ready to go whenever you are.

10 Broad St.
Nantucket, MA 02554

5. The Corner Table Cafe

A nook located in town for anyone and everyone who is looking to take a load off and enjoy a wonderful cup of coffee alongside seasonal treats.

22 Federal St.
Nantucket, MA 02554

6. Cru Nantucket

New this summer, it's a great, fresh take on New England classics. Cru also has prime real estate: an open-air, dockside restaurant surrounded by gorgeous visiting yachts and sailboats.

1 Straight Wharf
Nantucket, MA 02554

7. Boarding House

The underground wine cellar-feeling restaurant serves homey, delicious food (Bartlett's Farm tomato salad, chicken under a brick, and softshell crab are my favorites) and is perfect for a rainy night. The terrace is great for brunch on a sunny day, and the bar works for either.

12 Federal St.
Nantucket, MA 02554

8. Lola41

Hopping and fun. Serves deliciously fresh sushi and macaroni and cheese on the same menu. The tuna burger is astounding and available at their take-out outpost, Lola Burger.

15 S. Beach St.
Nantucket, MA 02554

9. Brant Point Grill

50 Easton St.
Nantucket, MA 02554

10. Provisions

Specialty sandwiches made with fresh ingredients. The Turkey Terrific (smoked turkey, stuffing, cranberry, and mayo) on Portuguese is a classic.

3 Harbor Sq.
Nantucket, MA 02554

11. Millie's

Laid back restaurant with something for everyone. Their quesadillas are especially good as is the tart frozen yogurt they offer from the take-out window. Located on the westernmost end of the island and accessible by bike (30 minutes from town), car, NRTA bus (15 minutes from town), or — the best — Millie's shuttle that picks up in front of the Town Information Booth on Federal Street.

326 Madaket Rd.
Nantucket, MA 02554

12. Something Natural

Pick up sandwiches on your way to Jetties for a beach picnic. A favorite is turkey, tomato, and Swiss on freshly baked oatmeal bread. Plus a couple of homemade chocolate chip cookies.

50 Cliff Rd.
Nantucket, MA 02554

13. The Nantucket Bakeshop

The island's go-to spot for wedding cakes and freshly baked Portuguese bread.

17 1/2 Old S. Rd.
Nantucket, MA 02554

14. The Juice Bar

Local ice cream shop with homemade waffle cones you can smell a mile away. Order the brownie à la mode in a waffle cup or mint Oreo with hot fudge for a tasty treat.

12 Broad St.
Nantucket, MA 02554

15. The Downyflake

There's always a wait to sit-down for breakfast at this local diner. It goes by quickly when you distract yourself with a chocolate doughnut from the take-out counter.

Nantucket, MA 02554
