GG TOP 10 Nantucket Spots
Met on Main Conveniently located next to some of the best downtown shops, this is the perfect place for a leisurely lunch. Sitting on the back patio is an absolute must! Decorated with colorful couches, string lights, and beautiful flowers, it’s a gorgeous spot to unwind.
Slip 14 Located on the Old Wharf, this casual, family friendly restaurant has abundant outdoor seating and delicious drinks. The menu is very diverse with plenty of options for adults and children. Try the mojito-you won’t be sorry!
Millie’s Margaritas on the porch? Yes Please! This casual Mexican restaurant has a super relaxed vibe and tons of outdoor picnic tables. It features delicious craft cocktails, homemade guacamole and super fresh food. It also has a smaller front shop for ice cream and take out (picnic on the beach?).
Oath Craft This small takeout pizza place at the end of the wharf has great thin crust pizza, all crafted by hand in front of you and cooked in 2 minutes! A local favorite, the Dougie, is a must try —topped with bacon, potato and ranch.
Aunt Leah’s Of course a trip to Nantucket wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Aunt Leah’s fudge shop! With tons of different flavors like vanilla m and m and salted caramel, Aunt Leah’s is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Cisco Brewery and Triple 8 Distillery This is an absolute must see when you visit Nantucket! The local brewery and distillery offers tastings of their beers and liquors ($10 for a flight) in little outdoor shops. There are a few food trucks from local restaurants and a huge outdoor seating area with live music! Grab a drink, enjoy the weather and relax!
Chicken Box The renowned local “dive” bar, reminiscent of what you’d find in a college town, The Chicken Box is great for a fun, late night out. It features live music, cheap drinks and an outdoor seating area, perfect for a little escape.
The Tavern With tons of outdoor seating, located right on the water on the wharf, The Tavern is the perfect place for a quick, post-shopping bite. Perfect for your seafood cravings, with lots of different lobster and raw bar options!
The Gazebo Located right next to the Tavern, The Gazebo is a fun, outdoor bar, with excellent drinks. Reserved for those 21 and up, this adults-only area is a great escape for a night out. Try the John Daly or Lulu’s Margarita!
Blue Beetle What GG doesn’t love to shop? Blue Beetle (off main street) offers beautiful, bright dresses, classic Nantucket basket purses and even tons of cashmere throws, scarves, wraps and sweaters to stock up for the winter! They also have an extensive jewelry collection and even allows you to order monogrammed, customized necklaces!
