In the Mood for Burgers and Cold Beer? Visit:

The Brotherhood of Thieves | 23 Broad St, Nantucket | (508) 228-2551

Simply known as "The Brotherhood," this Nantucket favorite is the meeting spot for friends visiting the island.

Channeling a mid-1800s whaling bar, The Brotherhood captures that perfect Nantucket vibe. It's the perfect place to enjoy a juicy burger, a bowl of lobster bisque, or a platter of fish and chips. Add in a cold beer and you'll see why The Brotherhood is so popular.
