We were staying nearby and saw that this place had received some good reviews; we found they were well deserved. It's a fresh seafood market that also serves food. We both had a lobster roll with fries and coleslaw. The lobster portion was both generous and delicious. Not cheap, but we were very satisfied with what we got. We didn't... More

After you've had enough clam chowder I suppose it's normal to develop a preference for a certain style and flavor. I found Wood's clam chowder to be pretty good except it was missing one critical ingredient - clams. I ordered a cup, which ended up being a pretty small portion in a styrofoam cup. I could have gone along with... More

We ate here while doing the tourist thing in Plymouth. This is the kind of home town seafood restaurant you would expect to find near the docks. If you want ambiance and expensive seafood eat someplace else. If you want large servings of fresh seafood meals (like claim strips) with quick service then this is the place. At this restaurant...

My clam chowder was tasty and had an average amount of clams. No complaints, really, but I love chowder and it didn't blow me away. Another person in our group loved their lobster and the corn on the cob I got with my meal was hot and fresh. Fried shrimp seemed nice and fresh and perfectly fried. We ate there... More

Probably the most delicious seafood bisque I've ever had! Other food was good too, but bisque was outstanding. Service was good too. Will definitely go back if we're ever in the area again.

Woods is the go-to place for its fish market and its good food cheap reputation. A favorite with local year-round. All the traditional New England offerings - good fried seafood plates, great chowder, lobster at great prices. Very casual, right on the docks where the fishing boats come in. Nothing fancy but the real deal.

I went here with my family after a whale watch on Capatin John Boats last year and it was good then. This year, my daughter had a craving for a lobster and we returned. I had the fried cod with fries and she had the lobster dinner. It was under $30 with drinks and we ate it all. The fries... More

As we were eating we were watching the fisherman unload their catches of the day. Very fresh here and very good. Wife's scallops were done to perfection. Sea bass very good also.

The fried whole clams which should be golden fried were dark brown meaning the oil was overused or old, the scallops were loaded with grease and I had to put them on a napkin to drain. The place was very busy but next time we go elsewhere.
