Yep, just another reason why we love the off season here on island. Nautilus is open for lunch Thursdays through Saturdays from 11:30AM until 2:30PM serving up a fresh menu filled with amazing items like the the fried chicken banh mi (panko fried chicken cutlet, cukes, chilis, pickled carrots & daikon w/ Korean BBQ sauce & Sriracha) as seen above!



 2. SUNDAYS MEAN FUNDAYS AT NAUTILUS

Yep, the Nautilus puts out a gorgeous staff of fun ladies on Sundays, where they serve a combo of lunch and and some nauti brunch specials from 11:30AM until… when until whenever the Sunday Funday stops! (NOTE: they are closed on Sunday nights for dinner so make sure you’re feeling easy like Sunday mornings with the #ACKnauti crew during the day!)



3. A NAUTI NEW YEARS EVE

During the winter you’ll find the staples you love! Come on in for the Nauti standards you love (tuna poke, oyster tacos, chicken drumettes, riblets, scallion pancake…) and keep an eye out for winter only specials rotating on and off the menu – like those addictive brussel sprouts (thinly sliced, lightly fried, and served over a miso parmesan sauce) and those Nantucket bay scallops (currently showcasing a thai greeny curry ACK bay scallop dish that delish… seared fresh local scallops, roasted pineapple, brocolini, honey crisp apples, pistachios & coconut rice) and they also just do them Barcelona style on the plancha!



5. LIBATIONS made with LOVE!

From Scratch Nauti Nog w/ Rum or Brandy (as seen above!) to Housemade Hot Cocoa w/ Pepeprmint Schnapps to the The Finally its fall with housemade apple cider, bourbon and holiday spices and the "strolling w/ my homies" - tequila, hibiscus, ginger, holiday cheer.... there is a #ACKnauti cocktail out there for every spirited patron!
