Fine for a quick lunch

I've read some of the negative comments and while my review is more positive, I can see how others may have a bad experience. I stopped in with a coworker while on the island for a business meeting. We had time to kill and wanted to grab a bite before hopping on the ferry, and this was open and... read more

I found the Rose and Crown several years ago while visiting the island. I enjoyed it immensely, enough that we went back two nights in a row. I now make it a must on any trip to the island. My favorite meal is their fish and chips. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality meal where prices... More

The location, of course, is beautiful. The food was fantastic with substantial servings. The atmosphere is casual, pub style with large whale sculptures hanging on the walls. Great place for family or a group of friends. Would definitely return.

Our family had a nice, late lunch here after a morning of bike riding. We were seated immediately as it was mid-afternoon. Our food came quickly and was very good. I had the fish and chips. My daughter's pasta was a great portion for an older child. My husband's hamburger was good as well. The atmosphere was casual and the... More

Needed a place for dinner while spending the afternoon on Nantucket and after checking out the variety of the menu settled on Rose & Crown. Pub setting with open air eating area made for a relaxing and casual meal. Service was fantastic, attentive and smiling, even while training new servers. Food was good, short ribs and steak maybe cooked a... More

Great location but unfortunate slow service. (Which was understandable, as we arrived there in the middle of the lunch rush, while the restaurant sits in the heart of the main streets.) a good stop for a quick and simple meal. Don't expect 5 star dining, but go for the fun bar pub atmosphere.

We had a good lunch in the bar. The service was quick and the food was good. I'm not much for pub food but I enjoyed my lobster roll and glass of wine. Lively atmosphere and clean restrooms.

My 10 and 12-year-olds were complaining of hunger, so we popped into Rose & Crown for lunch. The front windows/doors were open for a nice breeze, which is good bc there was no ac. It's a bit shabby inside; I think it's probably a fun bar for young people at night. But, the meals were tasty and well prepared and... More

We ate here for dinner prior to a show at the Dreamland. Our waiter offered us an inviting drink list, but when mine showed up it didn't match the description. The waiter blamed it on being a new drink list... It was sent back and its replacement took a while, as did our food. We were there so long that... More
