The Summer House Restaurant is known not only for its picturesque 'Sconset location but also for its imaginative contemporary Nantucket and international cuisine, an outstanding wine list as well as its welcoming staff. Dinner each evening is an event - subdued lighting, flickering candles, fresh flowers and the music from the Piano Bar combine to create an atmosphere of days gone by and the true romance that is Nantucket. Dinner on the porch overlooking the Atlantic and the starry night sky is a true taste of a Nantucket summer. Before or after dinner, drinks are available at the delightful Piano Bar where spontaneous sing-alongs often occur.

"The Summer House at once romantic and accomplished, basing its innovative dishes on local bounty...A pianist provides mood music; the moon rising over the water, a veil of enchantment." - Quick Escapes Boston

"It was heaven..." - Sandy MacDonald, Fodor's Guide to Nantucket

"In capturing the essence of Sconset, this rose-canopied complex epitomizes Nantucket as well. Flower-laden cottages encircle the lawn and veranda, where you'll want to sip a preprandial cocktail. The interior is abloom as well, with lavish floral displays, all the more resplendent against a background of pastel linen and white wicker... If you have only one night on Nantucket and want to be sure it's delightful, this should top your list of destinations."
