Restaurant Review Roulette: Nantucket Grill

Sorry for the delay, folks.  It’s primarily because I’m swamped at work, but it’s also because my heart’s not in it this week.  Why?  Because Greg Cox is reviewing Nantucket Grill.  Yes, he previously reviewed Nantucket Grill a few years ago, giving it 3 out of 4 stars, but this is the North Raleigh location!  When there are so few new restaurants in the Triangle that Greg Cox is forced to review a second location of an existing establishment (and there are now 4 Nantucket Grills), I feel sorry for the guy.

I haven’t looked up one thing about this place, other than the website and menu.  It’s in North Raleigh.  That’s the extent of my knowledge.

And I’m guessing 2.5 stars.  What’s your guess?

Here are the odds:

5 stars — 926 to 1

4.5 stars – 54 to 1

4 stars —  7 to 1

3.5 stars — 3 to 1

3 stars — 3 to 2

2.5 stars —  4 to 3

2 stars — 5 to 2

1.5 stars — 6 to 1

1 star — 22 to 1

Have you taken a trip to Nantucket?  How many stars does it merit?


Edit, October 8, 2010:  As predicted guessed, Greg Cox gave Nantucket Grill 2.5 stars.  I really had no clue, but come on, how hard is this??

    I had a burger from there several months ago and it was really very good. When we lived nearby we’d get a salad that had noodles, also good. I’m saying 3 stars.

    I’ve had many varied experiences at Natucket Grill. The Durham location is very close to me, but we only go for dessert. Their cakes are delicious and you get a healthy (pun intended) slice for your money. However, we’ve never had dinner there because it’s either too crowded, too cold, or too expensive.

    The Farrington Road location is different in that it seems to cater to the lunch crowd. You order at the counter and take a seat rather than the table service of the Durham location. The lunch I had there was fine, nothing special but enjoyable.

    My star rating: More cake please.

  3. I’ve only eaten at the Eastgate location in Chapel Hill, the Hwy 54 location in Chapel Hill, and the Durham location. Their cakes can be out of this world good, at least if they’re still sourcing them from the same person who did them the last time I got them. Mostly I eat at the original location.

    They have real honest to god New England Chowda, but you’d better like dill. Their lobster rolls are real lobster rolls. I actually like the chicken pot pie, and if they have a chicken divan special you’d better get it.

    It’s not cheap, they charge top of the demand line for their food for what they provide. I feel like I get value for it, but they do know how to walk that edge, part of what makes them successful.

    I’m gonna go to 3.5 stars, because of the chowda alone. It’s hard to find good chowda locally if I don’t make it myself.
