John, created an Irish Porterhouse on Nantucket that has become a local and visitor favorite among those who are Irish [although you do NOT need to be Irish to appreciate it!] Even though I am NOT Irish, I will return here many times. From the first floor pub atmosphere with high seats for tall tables and some bench seats with... More

We've just come back from vacation in West Cork and are missing pub food among other things. West Cork and the Wild Atlantic Way has a lot in common with Nantucket. One of the most missed of Irish treasures is draught Guinness which I happily discovered is available at Kitty Murtagh's. That is what drew me there originally. Now I... More

Right from the get go- the ladies were great! The service was great and so friendly! All of the staff helped each other out! The food was good, but not worth writing home about.

We liked everything here. Service was quick and servers worked like a team, backing each other up. We had buffalo tenders, a Turkey Club, and Irish Stew. Everything was nice and hot, fresh and flavorful.Other nice things: it was not too loud, not too packed, and had ample parking.

I brought my 86year old grandmother for a group dinner tonight. She just recently had her second hip replacement and isn't very mobile but has been a member of the group she was meeting for over 30 years and didn't want to miss this gathering. We were greeted with smiles when I discreetly told Emma that my grandmother needed to... More

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.
