The Captains Table

The best place table on Nantucket just got better. The Captain’s Table (Captain Nemo, The Nautilus, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, get it?) - our large, live edge wood dining table nestled into the front corner of our lively hole in the wall restaurant, shining with its beautiful coat of lacquer, beckoning the thirsty and hungry like an oasis in the Sahara while whole roasted ducks and 30oz ribeyes are shared and cocktail porrons and magnums of wine are passed from left to right in a frenzy of laughter amid a backdrop of lively… 

Join us this summer at the Captain’s Club, where we will be giving parties of 2 to 14 the chance to reserve the best table on island for one of two extended time slots.
