44 Straight Wharf, Nantucket, MA 02554, USA
One of few coveted waterfront spaces in town, Cru Oyster Bar opened in 2012 and offers a front-row view of the wharf and bay beyond. The nautical interior is thoughtfully done and features plush banquettes, a central communal high table, dark wood and beautiful bubbled glass light fixtures. Seafood lovers should not miss the oyster bar, which offers fresh local selections daily. But be warned: the restaurant’s location right next to the Hy-Line Ferry can lead to overcrowding.
