Love thehistoric downstairs, not a fan of the modern upstairs

My family has been coming to the Brotherhood for three generations and this was the first time we'd been seated in the newer, remodeled upstairs. It felt very sterile and we asked to be moved because of the unpleasantly harsh white lights that were directly above our table. The cozy downstairs... read more

Male bartender could care less about serving guests (it wasn't busy) and cared more about drinking shots and complaining to servers. Waitress was rude, draft beers took forever, food was ok but felt very uncomfortable with the atmosphere.

We didn't go into the regular restaurant but instead to the Biergarten around the back. Having been to Germany before, I guess I expected a little more from a place they named a Biergarten (beer garden). It was nice enough though with normal bar food and drinks and friendly bartender.

Had dinner there with my family . The location is great and they have a big outdoor space in the back / side of the main restaurant. The Service was friendly and professional, but the food was below par. My calamari were covered with mayonnaise and ketchup ( not even home made but from a jar) which was vile and... More

It is painful to give an average rating because Brotherhood has been a favorite for a very long time and worth multiple visits. The atmosphere still makes you feel like you are in the 1800s and part of the whaling fleet. But the night i went felt like everyone in the kitchen, waitstaff and management was only giving 10% effort.... More

Am I getting old searching for the memories of Nantucket of days gone by? In the 70s they invented curly fries. In the 80s they perfected fried scallops and up until the late 90s they had arguably one of the best quahog chowders on the island. Now they can barely pour a draft beer.and the wait service could care less.... More

Great place for a drink and a burger or sandwich. Much more affordable than some of the other places on island.

We enjoyed a late lunch at this favorite of ours. The experience was just superb from the moment we asked for a table. Service was excellent; felt the wait staff genuinely cared about our meal. We enjoyed the fried calamari and little necks for appetizers--calamari was crispy and not at all greasy. The little necks were lucious--fresh with 2 great... More

We had a club sandwich,clam chowder, curly fries and finished up with the blondie. The service was great and the food was very good . The blondie was served in a skillet and was just amazing. I would recommend this place for a casual lunch. Very laid back and just a cool place to chill and get great food and... More

We went for lunch on a pouring afternoon. We always enjoy the food here and its a reasonable price. My flatbread pizza was average but good and my bf loved the chowder and lobster blt. It didnt have any bacon on it, but we didnt bother to ask if it should because the place was so busy. It was very... More
