A tourist trap. If you go here, go for the view, not the food. We had biked the bike way and were very hungry. Service was slow and our soup was forgotten (they were delivered after our entrees and we were charged for them!!! Bad business). We won't ever go back.

Not sure why the service was so slow but lucky for us we had a great table with a view of the harbor and boats coming and going to entertain us. The specialty cocktails were great as well as our meals. The back porch with screens and windows was a really great place to sit. I recommend sitting there if... More

I have been working with WHOI for many years and always ate at other establishments. This time we went to Captain Kidd and had an excellent lunch. The fish sandwiches were excellent along with the crispy fries.. Great food, reasonable price, excellent service.

The Kidd is a favourite watering hole. The food is mixture of typcal pub fare and nicely done seafood dishes. The staff is generally friendly and attentive. The setting overlooking the water is what makes this a special establishment that I visit whenever I have a chance when in town.

What a waste of a beautiful view and atmosphere. I came here with family and a guest. The nice location with outside deck attracted us and the menu looked decent, although a bit pricey. This was not a busy hour, so we hoped we would be able to eat before our meter ran out in an hour and a half.A... More

Meeting family members and getting started on vacation often requires careful planning. With this in mind and with a group of eight, I made a reservation at this restaurant for dinner before catching the ferry to the Vineyard. I checked in about 6:30 to be sure our reservation was confirmed, was told the table would be ready by a window,... More

Good beer and great views of the eel pond. Stick with the basics - fish sandwich or burger - and you'll be happy with the food. This place has a lot of character and is a comfy stop for lunch or dinner.

As with many restaurants in towns that burgeon in the summer, the Kidd's culinary appeal varies from year to year. 2016 is a very good year! Fabulous Caesar salad (not dark, limp leaves), fish properly cooked, nice wine list. Very good and friendly service. Now, the original bar at the Kidd is an institution. You might find a fisherman to... More
