‘Madaket Millie’ Jewett was an island legend who spent her life caring for the beaches, the animals and the people of Madaket. Reserved, yet strong minded, Millie embodied the self-reliant spirit of native islanders. She was loved by locals and visitors alike, always willing to help people in need. Millie patrolled the coastline and watched for shipwrecks, earning her the highest civilian rank from the US Coast Guard. She sold ice cream and greeted travelers from her yard on Hither Creek. We hope to carry on Millie’s commitment to and passion for Madaket by offering a gathering place for visitors - old and new - to experience this unique part of Nantucket.
At Millie's, our coastal fare and easygoing attitude honors the true spirit of summer. Whether on the island of Nantucket or the mainland in DC, Millie’s celebrates the best fare from both coasts. From New England style lobster rolls to California Baja-style fish tacos, the menu brings the vibes of a Nantucket dockside straight to your tableside. And just like the strong yet endearing personality of its namesake, “Madaket Millie” Jewett, our cocktails are sure to help you set sail into a seaside state of mind.
Millie’s is a proud sponsor of a short film about light tackle fishing on Nantucket. This film tells the story of good friends and fishing guides coming together to share with others their passion for the water and the sport they love.
