New Restaurants on Nantucket 2017

Looking for the best new Nantucket restaurants for 2017?  Check out these sure-to-be favorites:  

Sandbar at Jetties Beach

4 Bathing Beach Road 508-228-2279 Two of Nantucket’s favorite bartenders—Nick of Cru and George of Nautilus—have opened Sandbar, offering casual beachside fare. Nick and George went through a lengthy competitive bid process to win the lease of this iconic location.  Look for plentiful seating in the surrounding sand, fresh raw bar, burgers, the best fried clams, sandwiches and traditional clambakes.

Club Car

1 Main Street 508-228-1101 New ownership has taken the reins of Club Car at the base of Main Street; the young team of Chef Mayumi Hattori and Director of Operations Ty Costa (both of Straight Wharf) and Tanya McDonough (Ventuno, Straight Wharf) have updated the food, décor and experience . . . and if you are wondering, the piano has remained in residence, but more prominently placed.


18 Broad Street Opening in the former Meursault space, adjacent to Dune Restaurant on Broad Street, Afterhouse is brought to you by the folks behind Galley Beach. Think cozy wine & oyster bar, serving chilled shellfish, raw fish preparations, caviars tinned seafood and charcuterie.
