Nantucket Grill was great. This was my first time at Durham location. Service is great and the food is delicious. Restaurant was clean I was impressed with their cakes selection. The best tiramisu cake I ever had. The wine selection is not shabby either. Will be coming back. Great experience.

Good chowder but we waited a long time for service and they weren't terribly busy. Decent salad. Ordered the lobster roll, it lacked something so I salted it and added spicy aioli they brought me from the kitchen, that did the trick!

Excellent dining and the service was great. The lobster bisque, clam chowder, and prime rib were fantastic. It's a small gem that not too many people know about which is good for dates and groups alike. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you like cake, their mile high cakes are both delicious and with very very tall slices.

Excellent food, and even better giant and delicious cake slices! It's nice that there's the option to get a half slice. Recently got takeout from here and I liked that pickup was easy.

Amazing local establishment with towering cakes and friendly service! I almost want to give them a bad review to save my spot at the bar. Not possible. Closest thing to North East a diner this side of Durham.

Very good food, AMAZING cakes and desserts!! If you go on the right day you get a free half slice of cake with your entree of $15 or more. Great atmosphere and waiters are friendly and helpful. I sometimes drop by just for cake.

Great atmosphere, the food is really good. But the best part about Nantucket are the cakes. A half slice is huge! You can't go wrong with any flavor. These are not your grocery store cakes. They are better than your grand mom's cake! If you can imagine that.

I thought we were going into a bakery to grab a slice of cake, had no idea this was a restaurant. The cakes were stacked nice and high! A slice is worth the money.🍰

I love love love the crab dip! I have been here several times, and have no complaints! Excellent service, food, and my favorite cake is the strawberry shortcake.

We actually just got back in Durham after a nice roadtrip to Massachusetts. While there in Cambridge, we tried the Lobster Rolls for the first time. Absolutely delicious 😍 So of course, we had to try the ones that are right here right under our nose at Nantucket's. Needless to say, they're second only to the ones that we enjoyed in Massachusetts. Thanks for a wonderful, delicious lunch. And definitely, thanks for your compliance to the social distancing/ face covering ordinance to ensure that customers are both safe and comfortable while enjoying your restaurant.

Finally got to sit at a restaurant (outside). Had a nice meal. The entire experience was made better by the waiter, Miguel who was excellent. Would probably go back just to try and get him again

Seeing that customers were eating outside underneath cover, stopped by for a quick bite. It had been raining; "a soft sifting sizz" and asked the hostess for a seat on the patio. At first, she denied me saying that staff could not serve during the rain. Noting that a couple had just been seated outdoors, she said that they should not have been, but walked me out anyway. It was not even raining. A sharp server, Kendall, with a good attitude took good care of me. Having been as a teen a hostess and later owning a restaurant in NYC, know HOW important that front person is. It begins the experience. This one, was NOT "the hostess with the mostest." Chef Zacki

Nantucket never disappoints! The food is always on point along with their amazing cake selection! The Island burger was so delicious! Cooked to perfection and the flavor was amazing! We had excellent service especially with a large party.

My best Friend and I had a very good experience having dinner at your Grill tonight. The food was excellent, and the service was great. Raymond was very attentive and friendly. We will be coming there often.

We were in town visiting family and decided to eat here on the spur of the moment. The food and service were great, Jorge took great care of us... And you should definitely save room for dessert

Great family place to sit outside. There's an area kids can play and adults can keep an eye on them. The food is outstanding...specially the sandwiches. THE CAKES ARE TO DIE FOR. Most of the time we receive great waiters who are friendly and quick but there has been a few occasions that has not been the case but the food and locations brings us back again.

Well, the service and food were both outstanding. My family each had different dishes and they were all delicious. Don't miss the New England clam chowder as it was the best I've had anywhere, including under the bridge in Boston. I never expected that. The cakes, which I guess are what they are best known for, were also delicious. Our table had the strawberry, which was light and easy, and also a slice of chocolate which was the good rich quality chocolate we were hoping for. Go here, eat well...and appreciate the service like Jayna gave us.

If you haven't tried their desserts, it is an absolute must!! The food is delicious and mouth watering. I love the lobster tails. But the desserts definitely are something you should not pass up!

Friendly service and delicious food. Everything we ordered was tasty, well prepared, nicely plated, and fresh - especially the Spicy Nantucket Seafood Pasta. We were lucky to be there on a day when you got free half slice of cake with each entree over $15. Since prices are a little high almost every entree qualifies. They make sinfully scrumptious mile-high cakes, so half a slice is quite generous. The decor is nothing to write home about but everything else makes this my #1 restaurant for a satisfying meal in a comfortable setting with great desserts.

Food is pretty good. They do seem to be be doing a ton with the menu and might be better served with a smaller menu selection. FREE slice of case on Tuesdays. They do have car seat high chairs which is awesome.Update: they now have vegan cupcakes and they are delicious. They do vegan cake options as well.

It was okay... the service was great but the atmosphere was thick with noise. It was pretty packed. Friday lobster special was lit. But I was expecting a bit more flavor...from everything. I'd go back but probably just to try the cake. Slices are as big as your face, no lie!

Today was my first day eating here and I loved it. I had the crab cakes with mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was delicious. The blueberry bread pudding was good as well. I will be back.

Had a bacon cheeseburger and fries. It was so good. Might even be on my top 10 burgers that I have had. It was cooked perfectly, and so were my fries. Finished up with their amazing strawberry shortcake. Our server was awesome too! Love this olace!
