A special spot that”s known for its specials
Crosswinds Restaurant @ Nantucket Memorial Airport
If Nantucket Memorial Airport looks familiar, it’s probably because the airport was the fictional setting for Wings, a sitcom that aired on NBC from 1990 to 1997. Not only does the airport double as the show’s “Tom Nevers Field Airport”—and cater to thousands of travelers every year—it’s also home to a popular local landing spot: Crosswinds Restaurant.
For travelers in search of a meal or a cocktail before or after a flight, Crosswinds offers indoor and outdoor seating and a full bar. Inside, model airplanes hanging from the ceiling and aviation-themed paraphernalia on the walls add to the décor, while actual airplanes are visible just outside.
Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, from 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Crosswinds offers a variety of traditional American dishes including fried calamari, fish and chips, and chicken pot pie, as well as the chef’s specialty: orecchiette pasta.
The restaurant also prepares different specials each night. On Tuesdays, diners can opt for the Steakhouse Sizzle, a choice of prime rib, New York strip steak, or filet mignon, served with mashed potatoes and vegetables for $12.95. Other popular specials include “Endless Pasta and 50¢ Jumbo Wing Night” on Wednesdays and “Traditional Turkey Dinner” on Sundays. The menu also features several “Breakfast at Night” options including buttermilk pancakes, omelets, and vanilla French toast. Another bonus? Crosswinds’ motto is “Bigger portions, smaller check.”
At the bar, customers can order a variety of cleverly named drinks including a Fogged In, a No Fly Zone, or, for the brave, a Nor’Easter with Grey Goose vodka, Midori Melon, and lemonade.
Lastly, Crosswinds offers an “On The Fly” counter where customers catching a flight, or otherwise on a tight schedule, can purchase a quick meal to go.
