After waiting for over ten minutes at our table (with two squirmy kids) we were finally able to flag a server who told us she couldn't help us but would send someone over. After another ten minutes there was no server in sight, and for the first time in our lives we walked out. Our experience was really unfortunate as... More

Eight of us had lunch here-great service. The food was interesting and varied-special of the day was lobster chunks on small toasts. Fish tacos were great. they accomodated our gluten-free friends.

Great location downtown and always a fun atmosphere. Swing by in the afternoon after shopping or drop in for a late nightcap.

After a 3 hour tour we were looking for a bite to eat. The weather wasn't playing nice so most places had lines out the door. Stumbling upon the Rose & Crown Pub we were sat promptly, and our waitress Bella was amazing! We ordered the local brews, The Grey Lady and Whale Tale Ale which I'd recommend, We started... More

After moving to Nantucket a week ago, Crown and Rose has turned into my local bar. It's right in the heart of downtown, 2 minutes from my home, live music each afternoon, sports playing on the numerous televisions, great food, and a large assortment of locals beers. The place isn't cheap, but we are on Nantucket. I always grab a... More

Sat for 5 min. Barely anyone in bar. Completely ignored. Will never go back. Too bad, new beer, Grey Lady (same name boat we came over on) sounded really good.

This is a basic pub, not too fancy, tvs, etc. But order the Lobster Mac & Cheese. A bowl of pasta, cheese with BIG chunks of lobster tail. Ooh-la-la. Overall, this place is a little less pricey than most of the other downtown restaurants and certainly pretty casual.

I had a wonderful lunch with great service here. I tried the short rib French dip with Swiss cheese and garlic mayo and it was outstanding! Lots of meat with virtually no fat, gristle, etc. and the bread was very fresh and well-proportioned to the meat. The fries were also excellent. Would happily return!

Two friends and I went to this pub after dinner, so we had already had a couple of drinks. We were having fun- not out of control- but the bartender wasn't excited to see us. I'm not sure he would have been excited to see anyone. Not exactly what I expected for a pub that should be a fun place.

A favorite place for the locals to hang...Relaxed and lively..Bustling atmosphere..Lots of bar chatter and mixing..Young fun and hip. Good value for food..Delicious appetizers.. Fine burgers and salads..Eat at the bar and people watch... Have a few drafts and when the music starts..Get up and dance
