The Wauwinet, a lavishly restored 19th-century inn on Nantucket's northeastern shore, is where islanders and visitors alike go to experience utmost luxury, and that includes the food. In the creamy-white dining room, awash with lush linens and glorious flowers, you can choose from a three-course prix fixe or à la carte menu, and more casual fare is on offer out on the deck. Many visitors take advantage of the Wauwinet Lady (a complimentary launch docked at the White Elephant, a sister property) to frame the journey with a scenic harbor tour; jitney service is also offered.

WARNING: Topper's is prixe fixe. No where did we read this information though I read several reviews. We expected it to be expensive but there was no avoiding $100 a person before drinks, tax and tip (maybe higher now). We noticed a family with two children encountering the same problem. Unless they got up and left, they were going to pay $100+ for each child. We also found that the wait staff made an effort to inflate our bill by offering additional
courses, etc. We left $700 lighter. Food is delicious but if you are led to expect something different cost-wise, it is hard to enjoy.

Amazing but miniscule portions, amazing service and setting. Some of the best food on the island but the price tag may well be too prohibitive for those on a budget.
