This is 5-star dining but in a casual, not uppity environment. You could come to dinner in a dress or all decked out and not be out of place. Excellent food and has vegetarian options.

Super casual and has outdoor seating (picnic tables). My favorite is the tuna burger, which is served on an English muffin. If you can, order the What a Watermelon beer to go with it. And don't forget the truffle fries!

Parks & Nature
This is my favorite beach on Nantucket. The surf tends to be rough but there are lifeguards here in season. There is also a pond for the little ones to play in if they tire of the beach.
