You wanna eat?! Okay, come on in :-)

The Nautilus Nantucket is a tiny hole in the wall restaurant with less than 50 seats. We do our best to accommodate as many people as possible, and we appreciate you working with us to make sure that the maximum amount of enjoyment can be had by as many people as can comfortably fit!

See below for further reservations information. Be mindful, it does change from time to time.

Book a Table

Currently, we are offering reservations seven days in advance (Sunday for Sunday for example), starting at 10:00am, online only. Reservations can be found on Resy, or use the button below. 

Reserve Here

Please note that for two to three guests our dining time is one hour and 30 minutes. For parties larger than 4 guests, dining time is limited to one hour and 45 minutes.

Please note, The Nautilus enforces a $50 per person cancellation fee if you do not cancel by noon on the day of your reservation. This fee is an effort to help offset the huge negative effect that these types of cancellations have on our business. Thank you for understanding.

We are incredibly excited to have our bar seating available again! Seats will available on a first come basis and once full, we will run a waitlist for bar stools. 



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 12 the chance to reserve the best table on island for one of two extended time slots.
