Casual Dining

Nantucket visitors will discover a variety of casual dining options offering great food at affordable prices. Consider a pub or tavern, a cozy cafe, a family-friendly restaurant, or a popular eatery right on Jetties Beach. There are lots of wonderful choices!


A Brotherhood of Thieves

23 Broad Street
Nantucket, MA 02554

Located in a historic early 19th century house on Broad Street, the Brotherhood of Thieves, is a Nantucket institution, popular with locals and tourists alike. Choose the downstairs tavern, upscale upstairs dining room, or outback patio. Brotherhood of Thieves specializes in sandwiches and simple fare. They have a great selection of libations, including the locally brewed Cisco beer on tap. You’ll find a sample menu on their website.
