rose and crown exterior

be treated like a local

The Rose & Crown began its life as a livery stable for horses and carriages in the 1800's. During the next 150 years, 23 South Water Street has served as a gas station and an art studio. In the mid-seventies it became The Rose & Crown restaurant. Named for a shoal 7 miles off the Southeastern coast of Nantucket, "The Crown," has been serving islanders and visitors continuously for the past 40+ years and is still going strong. 

We like to think of ourselves as a place where everyone can come, feel welcome and be treated like a local. Our menus are designed so that there is something for everyone. Whether it's our dining menu, our cocktail menu, our extensive craft beer list or our inventive "Mocktail" list you are sure to find something that will satisfy your hunger and quench your thirst. The Rose & Crown is always family friendly and accommodating to big groups. We consider ourselves to be a great gathering spot for drinks, food and entertainment.

After 10pm, we turn into Nantucket's only down town nightclub with entertainment 7 days a week in season. We are known for our DJ's, karaoke and live local music. We are also a great venue for your after party if you are having your destination wedding here. You can rent out space for your guest or you can rent the entire venue. 

​Let us help make your trip to Nantucket one to remember!

Cheers! - Rick, Tracy & Debba
