Inside Nantucket

Let’s be clear: the dining atmosphere and overall ambiance at Nantucket Seafood Grill is without peer. Located in the heart of downtown Greenville, across from the Peace Center for Performing Arts, everything about Nantucket inspires a feeling of deep satisfaction. Picture rich walnut-stained wood, elegant yet warm lighting, natural earth-tone colors, and the delicate mingling of fine wine, laughter and conversation. Nantucket is that rare destination that is at once relaxing and entertaining…intimate and open…romantic and engaging. Long, panoramic windows extend alongside the inviting bar and dining area to afford views of the Village Green and the courtyard patio, complete with a towering, artfully crafted, lighted stone waterfall.

To be in this setting is to be completely content, upbeat and at peace. "I have always believed that the dining atmosphere is equally as important to guests as delivering quality food,” Rick says. "At Nantucket, we strive to give you that total dining experience that marries great atmosphere with the finest seafood in town.” In fact, so dynamic and inspiring is the setting at Nantucket Seafood Grill that Rick has humorously (yet accurately) dubbed it: "The Rockefeller Center of Greenville.”

About Rick

It was, perhaps, inevitable that Rick Erwin would open Nantucket Seafood Grill in April of 2010. After all, his West End Grille was already a huge success in downtown Greenville, garnering many national culinary awards. So when a good friend approached him with the idea of fulfilling a niche in Greenville’s dining market by opening a premier seafood restaurant, Rick couldn’t say no. "It was obvious to me right away,” Rick admits, "because there was nothing else like it out there. This was a perfect opportunity to fill a gap in the downtown Greenville dining experience.”

Rick was born and raised in Greenville, SC and for as long as he can remember the restaurant business was in his heart. "I got my first job in this business when I was 14 years old and I haven’t looked back,” Rick says. "I feel incredibly blessed to do what I truly love—which is to give my customers an outstanding dining experience.” Because of his commitment to unparalleled service and the highest quality food, it’s not surprising that Rick’s customers are repeat dining guests who come back time and time again. "Everything centers around the customer,” Rick says. "Our team here at Nantucket is incredible. Every member of our staff—from the bartenders, to the wait staff, to the Executive Chef and his crew—is focused on one thing: exceeding our customers’ expectations.”
