Kitty's is a Nantucket standard and well worth a visit. Big parking lot [more spaces across the street], good service, and decent food. One gripe: ordered shrimp scampi, which was described as "over angel hair pasta" but it arrived over linguine. Sure, a "First World" problem, but it should have... read more

Kitty's is a Nantucket standard and well worth a visit. Big parking lot [more spaces across the street], good service, and decent food. One gripe: ordered shrimp scampi, which was described as "over angel hair pasta" but it arrived over linguine. Sure, a "First World" problem, but it should have been described. The meal was enjoyable nonetheless.

Being near our house we stopped for lunch here on a rainy October afternoon with our friends. Great comfort food selections - of course chowder, which was excellent, followed by a beef stew with of course beers.

Just an all around great place to sit have a bit or sit down stars for a more family restaurant! The salad bar is to die for! and only 10. bucks what a deal!

Great place to watch a sports game! Beer menu as well as the food menu has a good variety with decent prices. The fish & chips were good. The crabcake appetizer was a bit disappointing, unless you like a more breaded crabcake. Service is good and the atmosphere is relaxed.

Great place to bring the family for a great meal without down town prices. Warm traditional Irish Pub environment with pool tables.

Great salad bar and $5 Burger Night in the off season is a good value. Real Pub food with friendly service and good selection of beers on tap. Recommend the soup and salad add on to any entree. Parking can be a bit tricky when they are busy. Enjoy!

We were disappointed. We expected that because this was Nantucket, this tavern would have better food and a nicer atmosphere. We found it to be exactly what you would expect of a tavern restaurant. With all the choices available, this isn't someplace we would visit again.

Dear Sue I would like to thank you for your poor review of my Restaurant. I apologize that you got exactly what you expected in a Meager Tavern on Nantucket. You seemed redisposed to not having an enjoyable time and that our standards would not meet yours from the moment you decided to try our establishment. Kitty Murtaghs is a... More

Growing up and still living near Buffalo I know my wings and Kitty's are great - crispy but not overly and served with the amount of heat that is requested. You can tell they're using the original Buffalo recipe. My dining companions had the soup & wrap of the day and the Ruben, both very good but the Ruben was... More
