A. K. Diamonds
16 Macy Lane
Nantucket, MA 02554

Located right near the airport. A.K. Diamonds is open seven days a week year-round. Lunch is served from 11:30 AM until 5:00 PM, and Dinner is served from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM, 10:00 PM during the summer months. The whole menu is an early bird special!

American Seasons
80 Centre Street
Nantucket, MA 02554
(508) 228-7111

American Seasons is open from the middle of April through December, serving dinner nightly from six to ten. The menu is divided into four regions. Pacific Coast, Down South, Wild West, and New England. Each region contains new and traditional ingredients and cooking techniques that are indigenous to that region of America. The flavors and presentation are big, bold, and exciting. The dinner and dessert menus change monthly with specials that change nightly. Dress code — Casual proper.

Arno's at 41 Main Street
41 Main Street
Nantucket, MA 02554
(508) 228-7001

The Boarding House
12 Federal Street
Nantucket, MA 02554
(508) 228-9622

Serving lunch and dinner.

Brotherhood of Thieves
23 Broad Street
Nantucket, MA 02554

Brotherhood of Thieves re-opened on April 20, 2005 after an extensive renovation, with new owners and new management. Fast forward to 2015, it appears that the Brotherhood is experiencing excessive price creep. 17 bucks for a burger and fries in the basement is too much. Sure it's Nantucket, but it's a burger and fries in the basement. Can't make this a recommended spot anymore. In our opinion the menu is now overpriced.

Located in the heart of Nantucket's Historic District, the abundant charm of this small red building with ivy-covered windows invites you to enter. Inside the doorway massed flowers greet you on the antique bakers rack. Just beyond, tables glow softly, lit only by candles. The kitchen is open and can be seen from the dining room. Romantic ambiance abounds.
