The service was great, the restaurant was very clean, the food was terrific and the portions are large. It's a little pricey, but each day there are different specials. The cake is a feature and it's worth the trip. Overall the atmosphere is like a family restaurant I might have visited in my youth...a refreshing change from the TVs and loud decorations theme restaurants have today. Great place for special occasions!

Never disappointed when we eat here. Came for the yummy cake, but our quesadillas and salads were fantastic as well. Great service, hot and tasty food came out quickly. My triangle area top 10.

I'v been here a couple of times over the years. On this occasion, we were here for a family after funeral party... somber event, but it was well handled by staff. They have a small side room for 'parties'. Fit 18+ in with no problem. Food was good. Loved the lobster bisque and the vanilla cream & fruit cake.

This is dessert place that happens to serve lunch and dinner. We have only had lunch here, but it has always been delicious and plenty to eat. It is counter-style for lunch and full service for dinner.
Our lunch is usually lobster rolls, as it is my wife's favorite and it isn't offered in a lot of places in NC.
But the big reason we come is for the cakes. They are the first thing you see as you enter the building. They can be purchased as a whole slice (feeds 2 easily) or half slice. My favorite is the Red Velvet and my wife's is the Strawberry.
We eat here every time we come to Chapel Hill.

Wandered in on a Sunday for lunch and found Lobster Tails and Prime Rib specials that happen weekly. Our server, Sarah was extremely helpful with descriptions and information about several dishes we had questions about and was an overall jewel of a server. My prime rib was delicious and the sides were well prepared and tasty. I must mention the cake as we took several half slices with us and no other cake in the area compares to these. This is an experience not to be missed!

Waitress was extremely nice and attentive. I'm so very impressed I ordered a steak burger and actually got a real steak burger not anything grinded up and called "steak". I enjoyed the fries as well. I have no doubt the rest of the food is good. The only thing I was disappointed by was that the calamari was the round onion ring shapes not full bodied calamari, but my son loved them. The restaurant is beautiful and had a very lovely atmosphere. A nice place to celebrate a special occasion for sure.

I visit this restaurant every month with my car club friends (around 15 people). The atmosphere is always relaxed and welcoming. It isn't a fancy restaurant. But, the food is terrific, as are the drinks and desserts. Best of all, they don't skimp on great service and labor. For a group our size, our orders come out quickly and perfectly prepared. I highly recommend Nantucket Grill, whether you have a large group or not. You won't be disappointed. Product recommendations? Blackened Salmon Salad, Shish Kabobs with Teriyaki sauce, broiled chicken, ANY dessert.

My husband and I were celebrating our 25 year anniversary. I googled coconut cake near me and this restaurant came up so we decided to try it out.
Kristen was our server and we enjoyed her suggestions and humor. Dinner was delicious, I had the fiesta steak salad and my husband had the sea scallops.
Then we ordered cake to go. The strawberry shortcake cake was delicious and the coconut cake was worth the drive! My husband also tried the strawberry cheesecake, which is really good.
We will be back. The menu was full of tasty choices.

Good service during a very busy lunch rush. Salads and burgers were very good. I just wish the onion rings were crispy and fresh. Send like they're been sitting around for a while.

Great food. Slow service. The clam chowder was good, and the grilled chicken was moist. I was expecting it to be dry but was pleasantly surprised. The appetizer bread was incredible - soft, fluffy and slightly crunchy for the crust. Not sure this is somewhere I'm going back to on my next trip to Chapel Hill area.

This place is ok. My mom ordered a chicken sandwich and I got a BLT with onion rings. They use too much breading on their onion rings. On the upside, their cakes are yummy. But the coconut cake is better at Bangkok 54 which is right across the street!

Very good cake! The food was good, we had fried clams (solid 8/10), the scallop skewer (7/10), and a lobster roll (7/10). To be fair we are from coastal Mass so these are very good reviews with perspective. Our server was great, she was young, fast, and very nice. They have good specials too.

We enjoy the casual atmosphere and varied menu here. Good food. Fresh dinner salads. Nice seafood and wine. No oysters, however Fine steaks. Don't miss the chowder, blue cheese dressing, or excellent cakes they make. Free dessert half slice two nights a week. Prime rib weekends. Great wine.

Have eaten alot of seafood in Boston area and the full belly clams here are a 4/5 just because of the portions. 5/5 if the double portion came with more clams.. Perfectly fried and a fair price for the area.
