Each plate we ordered was more delicious than the last. Highly recommend short ribs! Service at the bar was top notch. Very attentive team on Tuesday night. One of the best dinners we have had out, both food and service - in a very long time. We can’t wait to return.

Outstanding service both times we’ve been during this stay in Nantucket. One lunch and one dinner. Food is excellent. Nice change compared to the inconsistent service of some of the other local restaurants.

About the restaurant
Brew Fish Bar and Eatery is a fun place to be with a casual upscale atmosphere, great service, great food, and great drinks that you will want to come back for. We chose the name to reflect our love of beer and the representation of new twists on local and New England favorites like our “Ch’ale Soup” a chowder which combines two local favorites…Chowder and Kale Soup into one delicious creation! Whether you’re in the mood for a nice cold craft beer, a hearty burger or pizza, or an amazing entrée, we believe that at Brew Fish Bar & Eatery, you will find exactly what you are looking for. Our welcoming staff and warm atmosphere will make you feel that you’ve entered a place where we love people, food and family.

Very friendly staff, accommodating. We were late for our rez due to traffic and I called approximately 30 minutes prior and they moved us around. The cocktails were well made; the food was fresh and delicious. We enjoyed the shrimp scampi, tacos and salmon. Oh and let's not forget dessert of chocolate brownie sundae and cappuccino. Will def visit again when in the area.
