Millie’s Restaurant is a Madaket institution and a Nantucket must-try, embodying the island’s laid-back vibe. Fresh fish tacos, cool margaritas, and chill beach ambiance make this West End staple a must-visit.
The Restaurant bears the name of “Madaket Millie” Jewett, a legendary figure known for her dedication to the island’s beaches, wildlife, and residents. Millie used to sit in her yard on Hither Creek and sell ice cream to passing travelers. She acquired the highest civilian rank in the United States Coast Guard by hunting for shipwrecks along the shoreline and patrolling the coast.
Today, Millie’s Restaurant is known for its delectable drinks, Baja-style tacos, quesadillas, and salads. So, take THE WAVE bus, ride a bike path, or hire a scooter and hurry to taste their savory meals such as Yellowfin Tuna Poke or the super-summery Steps Beach quesadilla loaded with lobster meat, slow-roasted tomato, grilled zucchini, and many others.
Millie’s will have you as a loyal customer for life if you try their trademark Madaket Mystery drink while watching the sun go down from either the spacious dining room upstairs or the picnic tables outdoors.
