"Chips" or coleslaw comes with each entree. Chips are actually tortilla chips with no sauce. Quite surprised. Would've been much better if there were something for the tortillas chips or if they were potato chips or if we were told that was what we would...get.More

I love their tacos and have tried salads and quesadillas too. Everything I have tried has been wonderful! It's made fresh, so you will have a short wait. I think they just re-opened for the season in the last week or two. I'll have to...get there soon.More

Bit of a delayed review, but I really enjoyed this spot when I was in town. The lobster is clearly where its at, but I'm not a huge fan and opted for the shrimp instead. Some good heat and great flavor. My only quibble would...be two tacos for $15 is steep. When you do lobster you're talking $28. That said, it was delish, and not a lot going on in this little town. Guac is an extra $3.50, but who isn't going to get some guac? Comes with some chips on the side - quick service. Order at the counter spot, and they'll bring the food out to your table. Definitely a fun spot!More

We think this is one of the best restaurants on the Cape and Islands. The food is spectacular, the service friendly, welcoming and professional, good wine list and great views. Quicks Hole is our year round go to restaurant.

I only had a burger and quahog chowder but it was the best burger I ever had ! The apple bacon burger was cooked perfectly the roll had a nice crispy edge from grilling and we had the small salad instead of fries. You can...choose between the fries or salad.More

I ordered the beer-battered cod burrito on Saturday August 24. The burrito did not have cod in it - they were serving Escolar instead of cod. I know this because I had Escolar one other time and became very sick in the same way I...was sick this past Saturday. The fish also didn't have the texture of cod. I called tot ell them about it and the manager seemed to not care and was defensive. Serving Escolar instead of cod is dangerous and irresponsible. You should not eat at this place.More

The fish was dripping in grease, though hot, fish inside was fresh. The fries were cold and greasy. The hostess said that’s the way it’s meant to be. Barf city.

Had lunch and everyone raved about the seafood dishes. Grandson had grilled shrimp which disappeared quickly from his plate. The fried cod was divine.

Family had lunch here and while not inexpensive the food quality was outstanding so you felt you got reasonable value. All entrees including lobster tacos and roll, shrimp roll and shrimp quesadillas were tasty and well seasoned. seafood was fresh and bountiful. Salsa bar was...a nice touch and our grandson (9 months old) loved the peach salsa.More

Expensive. Had a shrimp burrito bowl for $14. 4 1-inch diameter shrimp. Guacamole tasted bad and looked old with brown in it. Salsa bar was not interesting. Shame on us for getting clam chowder too in cape cod at this place. pretty much potato soup....If you are going to open a burrito joint, go visit denver, SF, or san diego and figure it outMore

We had dinner with friends on a quiet summer evening. We were all disappointed with the menu and even more so with the food. Seating was cramped and uncomfortable. Service was mediocre. The restaurant is close to the Ferry terminal-so it is convenient for people...coming or going to the islands. Lunch might be better than dinner- I have never had lunch here but friends say the fish tacos are good. This is a disappointment for dinner, however.More
