Nantucket’s largest outdoor restaurant is nestled in the dunes along the beach in Sconset, just below the bluff where the Summer House Cottages are. Tiered flower and herb gardens line the walkway to the restaurant’s bluestone patio overlooking the ocean. With a vast menu and many signature cocktails, the Beachside Bistro is a popular place for delicious lunches, happy hour drinks, and family dinners.
The menu includes everything from fresh seafood platters and oysters on the half shell to locally caught codfish, and fresh lobster served in a roll, in a salad, as a clambake, Fra Diavolo, and with squid linguini. There is an extensive children’s menu, and homemade gelato is available.
The Beachside Bistro is one of the few restaurants to offer all-day dining. At night the menu changes, piano music, and candlelight complement the tablecloth setting for a more elegant meal. The children’s menu continues to be available.
Generations of families enjoy the afternoon and early evening in this unique location. The area is particularly popular with bike riders as it is just a short distance from the end of the Sconset bike path. Dogs are welcome.
