Nantucket Kitchen and Bar

Shop MM5, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, Station Rd Indooroopilly QLD 4068

Docked in Indooroopilly Shopping Centre’s new dining precinct, Nantucket draws inspiration from the iconic wonders of Cape Cod with its white walls, dark hardwood floors and New England interiors.

Offering contemporary American fare in a stylish sanctuary, the eatery is the maiden voyage for TJ and Kim Peabody of Craggy Range Winery fame.

“We’re a Western suburbs family, and to have our first restaurant here is really exciting,” says TJ. “We had a dream and what we’ve ended up with is exactly the vision we’d planned in our minds.

“We not only want to provide people with a great restaurant, but also a comfortable, welcoming space where old friends, new friends, families and colleagues can meet and enjoy our culinary delights in a home away from home.”
