Boston, MA  – May 2, 2023 – Stubbys, the beloved Nantucket eatery known for its classic menu and friendly service, is excited to announce the opening of its first mainland location in Boston Seaport. The highly-anticipated restaurant is set to open its doors May 18, 2023 and will offer customers an expansive menu covering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night.

Founded in 2000 out of a fish market on Nantucket’s historic Broad Street with the simple intent of serving French fries to visitors coming on and off the ferries, Stubbys quickly became a staple of the island’s dining scene. They earned a die-hard following of locals and tourists of all ages, serving up their take on classic American and Jamaican food. Decades later, Stubbys is ready to expand, bringing its iconic menu and vibe to the heart of Seaport.

The new Stubbys will span 1,805 square feet, far surpassing the size of its Nantucket location, while still maintaining the innate warmth and charm of the original. Upon entering, guests will be greeted by a welcoming ambiance accentuated by wooden furnishings and brick walls. Stubbys will be adorned with photographs depicting its rich Nantucket history, evoking the island’s heritage and community. Lively music will fill the space with a variety of classic rock to tropical house beats in the evening. While exploring the new location, guests can anticipate branded Stubbys giveaways, samples, and more. 

The menu will cover classic breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night bites, with a range of dishes that showcase the flavors of Nantucket and beyond. Breakfast will feature a variety of breakfast sandwiches such as the Hungry Man and breakfast burritos. For lunch and dinner, customers can indulge in Stubbys specialties like the Jerk Chicken Sandwich, Fish & Chips, a classic cheeseburger and more. Stubbys will also offer to go and online orders through various food delivery provides, ensuring that customers can enjoy their favorite dishes at their convenience. 

“We’re so proud of what we’ve created over the years with our Stubbys family on Nantucket and feel honored to bring it off island in this next chapter that still feels really connected to the history. We have been so intentional in selecting materials, vendors, staff for this new restaurant and can’t wait to meet our new customers in person,” said Stubbys Managing Partner, Saugat Mali. “For us, it’s so much more than serving great, classic food. It’s creating a community of people who greet each other by name, stay to enjoy good company, and come back for the way it made them feel.”

Stubbys Partner Scott Kopp says Stubbys finds success by focusing on the people, “We have employees who become family and customers who become friends. What makes Stubbys different is the warm, fun environment that customers love and come for year after year on Nantucket. It’s our hope that Stubbys Boston will become that same familiar neighborhood establishment where customers always feel welcome.”

Stubbys will be located at 43 Northern Avenue in Boston Seaport and will be open seven days a week from 6:30am to 11:00pm. For more information and updates, please visit

    Iconic? Stubby.s is a glorified greasy sub shop on Nantucket. It’s habituated by inebriated white over privileged frat boys. It’s the epitome of white supremacy.. That said, when I was half in the bag a greasy cheese steak hit the spot from Stubby.s. It’s one of the ironies of life? I miss Liberty Bell Roast Beef at times like this. Nine out of ten cardiologists looking for new patients recommended you eat here.

    A Nantucketer since 1958 and a Boston Fish Pier person since 1950 ‘something .
    I was happy to see Stubbys . I walked in today ; it’s nice and clean, good menu , a bit expensive for me , but , for Seaport it’s ok … a good option to Shake Shack , a great place to bring your kids on Saturday … open late so let’s hope it stays calm at late hours .it may be hard to get workers for all those shifts … we must keep this block clean and trash pick up during the day not during the night as it wakes everybody up … let’s give it a chance … hope there is ice cream on the menu… and it stays clean !
