This restaurant is a casual family friendly eatery. It has good parking which is a plus on Nantucket. We both ordered the signature dish of fish and chips. It was very good fresh cod. As to be expected it was a bit greasy.

Upstairs it is a bar with pool tables BUT downstairs there is a pub style restaurant with some of the best food on island, a nice wait staff and a pleasant atmosphere. They have an Irish pub food section of their menu where everything we have tried is excellent and inexpensive, especially the beef stew, so we haven't ventured out... More

We exited the ferry looking for some Irish pub food. Walked about 20 min from ferry. On West Creek Rd. Nice, clean air conditioned pub. Locals were in enjoying their lunch. There are two pool tables. We shared mussels which were delicious. My friend had the fish & chips. I had the lunch special, shrimp sandwich on a brioche roll... More

While not fancy, Kitty Murtagh is worth a visit if you are on Nantucket. It's a pub, has a good selection of draft beers and an eclectic pub menu. I had the blackened prime rib sandwich, it was great. The spice was perfect, the ciabatta was fresh, and there was no shortage of the perfectly cooked meat. I have to... More

This was the most authentic seeming Irish pub I've been to (keeping in mind I've yet to visit Ireland). Had a real wood fire in the hearth, billiards tables, very cozy especially as it was winter the fire was most welcome! Our waiter was super friendly and on top of things without being annoying. I had the fish and chips,... 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.

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.
