Offering takeout, reduced indoor dining, and patio seating, Cru is a great place to enjoy fresh Nantucket seafood in a "see and be seen" environment. Reservations are accepted for dinner, making it easier to snag a table by the water. Should you want to dine indoors, the dining room's floor-to-ceiling windows are open on nice days.

Venture out of town to find this gem of an outdoor dining spot on Nantucket. As the name implies, this restaurant is located right on the beach, so you can enjoy the fresh air and put your toes in the sand while you eat. The menu uses fresh, local ingredients and is casually elegant with a focus on seafood. Reservations are available for the beachside tables but are weather dependent.

Go for a fancy night out at Brant Point Grill, with its large patio overlooking the harbor.
