Bit of a jaunt from the downtown area but the food was good and the wait staff was friendly. We were there off season, but I imagine it has a lively bar scene in the summer. Good choice for sandwiches and Irish grub.

This is a great place. Welcoming, casual, friendly, good food, prompt service with a varied menu and -Guinness. On earth a week, they offer a $5 burger and fries dinner ($6 with cheese), probably the best deal on the Island. This is a swell place, centrally located and well worth doing.

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
