Lovely view, lovely food.

You can't go wrong here... Great service, adjusted menu to cater for our party and very accommodating of our 2 year old live wire. The lobster and clam chowder were tasty as expected for the area and the view across the harbour reminded you where you were.

Quaint restaurant on the water in Woods Hole. Boat activity just outside the windows which line the walls so everyone has a view. Attentive, knowledgeable staff, food you will go back for. Family as well as date friendly.

We are yearly visitors to the Cape and Vineyard and wanted to eat on the water. Hostess was rude and unwilling to place one more chair to seat 5 at a 4 top, It was not crowded at all; then ignored us and sat a few more tables.Although disappointed we sat away from the window based on the "manager" 's...

I'm so sorry to see this, Chris. I know that service can make or break an experience, so I apologize that, in this case, it made you have a negative one.

My husband's Fried Bellies Clams were tasty but my Lobster Roll was dry. We asked for drawn butter which helped. Service was marginal. Maybe the server was new?

Brelda, this is a letdown! I wish your lobster roll and service would've been way better than marginal. Next time you're in The Cape, I'd love to welcome you back and show you a better time. Take care, Jim, Owner More

Was there in mid August. Great local place. Good food, but a little pricey. Being on the water is always great.

We stopped by for an early lunch. Service was good and it a nice spot overlooking the water. My husband and I had Bloody Mary's to start, they had very little flavor. For lunch I had a lobster roll which was disappointing. Not much flavor, it did have a lot of lobster and the price was ok compared to other... More

Of course, I'm happy to see that you enjoyed the view and service, but I wish our food would've left you with a better impression. The most important thing about any dish is the flavor, so I apologize it was lacking when you ate with us. I hope we'll get another shot to show you a better time. Take care,... More

Hope you had so much fun at Road Race weekend! I'm glad you got a chance to stop in and come eat with us while you were visiting. There's nothing I enjoy more than eating fresh mussels by the water, so it's great we got to share that with you. See you next time. Take care, Jim, Owner More

We ended eating here three times during our week stay in the area. Loved the patio doors open to the harbor area with the ocean breeze blowing in while we dined. Very comfortable. We witnessed the ambiance change from soft, to extra loud (a party table nearby) between visits. The staff was very professional, friendly and attentive. They definitely hustle,... More
