Not often I write a bad review but felt I had to here. First we were told restaurant was full when we arrived (it clearly wasn't) and we were sent to the back with round tables. I admit we were not too smartly dressed but I've not had any issues before. The main gripe though was the service which was... More

Wood's Hole was the last place we visited on the Cape, before leaving for New York. What a lovely place!! The restaurant was excellent. The lobster was succulent, and the choices of wines and beers was very good. Service first rate. Wonderful setting.

Hungry we walked around town looking for the right 'outside' dining spot. We chose this one and sat on the dock that juts out into the marina. We shared two starters. The lobster ginger 'dumplings' (we would call them pot stickers) with a yummy sauce and a crab and cheese on bread. Both were good. Our judgment: We made the... More

Food and service was fine here. We ate the Shrimp Skillet, lobster dumplings which were delicious and the 1/2 BBQ chicken.

We had a very good lunch, clams 3 ways, steamers, fritter and roll -- the fritter and clam roll were splendid. The lobster roll was meaty and tender-yum however the fish and chips were ordinary, a bit dry, below expectations. Nice views on the porch overlooking Eel Pond while locals fretted over the Pats game at the bar.

We watched other guests, who were tried of waiting for her to pick up their check and payment, walk to the register at the bar to pay so they could leave! They were out of... More

I was very disappointed with several different things. First, on a day where the restaurant was not busy, it took quite a while for our party to be seated. The wait staff, while polite and pleasant, took a while to get us our drink orders and forget getting a refill. Portions were not what we expected, especially for the price.... More

We were warmly greeted by the host, made to feel welcome by the staff and the food was fantastic. I had the lobster roll and my wife had the lobster dinner, and then... More
