There is nothing quite like your hometown pub. You know the place: satisfying food and drink, smiling faces, and good times abound. They serve up some of the best things in life, something we could all use during these trying times. On Nantucket, there is one place that comes to mind where diners can fill their bellies and feed their souls, catch up with friends old and new, and feel right at home on their first visit. For all this and more, look no further than the Rose & Crown.
Our visit to Fifty-Six Union left us feeling not only fully satisfied, but fully
comfortable with once again dining out of the house. Every precaution is taken
without sacrificing a single thing we’ve grown to love about this dining destination.
Call today to make Fifty-Six part of your island summer.
Dining out is different this summer season. On Nantucket, the town, restaurant owners, and their neighbors have gone above and beyond to accommodate outdoor dining in spaces that in the past would be impossible. Still impossible for some, island restaurants with no outdoor spaces are working creatively to distance indoor tables and to offer meals to go. As people who love to go out to eat, we see all this as the opportunity to enjoy culinary delights from our favorite restaurants at our favorite island places.
When it comes to finding food in downtown Nantucket, there are lots of great places to choose from. For us, outdoor dining is always ideal, and with more options than ever this summer, we’re starting to see a silver lining in everything we’ve been through. However, not all porches and patios are created equal. There is just one that comes complete with harbor views, sea breeze, spacious seating, and fast, friendly, family fun. There’s nothing on island like our own harborside oasis at Easy Street Cantina.

We savor September on Nantucket for the warm and sunny days, for the cool, crisp evenings, and for the ability to finally get a table at Black-Eyed Susan’s. This popular eatery in the heart of Nantucket Town has been a favorite among locals and visitors for about a quarter-century. Co-owners […]
by Carl Oscar Olson We are taught from an early age to never judge a book by its cover. Before you make up your mind, take a look inside: there’s almost always something surprising beneath the surface. Something unexpected and new behind every door. All you have to do it […]
by Carl Oscar Olson As New Englanders, we know well the sweet smell of seafood rising from our favorite seaside shacks and shanties. Every village and town along the coast is home to at least one, that famed destination where we slow down and fill up on the bounty from […]
by Carl Oscar Olson Compared to the world outside, Nantucket has a way of moving slower through time. Change does visit here on occasion; it meanders when it does. Moseying down the dunes and over the cobblestones like a shadow, unnoticed. And sometimes when we finally look up to see, […]
