It is all about the atmosphere and the chowder! Got a table on the dock which was fabulous and unexpected. Our waitress was great even though she had a tough job of serving on the dock. The fish was a bit over done--the 'house' wine pretty bad--and salad average--but a really fun night. Did like it better before they jazzed... More

Stopped here for lunch after riding from Falmouth on the Shining Sea Bike Path. It was the most lovely setting on a gorgeous July afternoon. We ate on the Pier, about 2:00 p.m. on a Wednesday. It was not crowded at all. I had the fish and chips. The food was very high quality, reasonably priced. Very happy with wait... More

OMG! What can I say? I wasn't expecting much and was blown away. Awesome service at the bar and at the table. We were a large party and not one person had an issue with their food. I had the smoked oysters and vegetables they were to die for.. I don't think I ever had anything as wonderful before. All... More

Who needs the French Riviera when you can have lunch on the deck of Captain Kidd's in Wood's Hole! A world beating location with a wonderfully relaxed ambiance. Sitting in sunshine at a dockside table, watching yachts and pleasure boats go too and fro whilst sipping on a drink and soaking up the atmosphere - very, very special. My daughter... More

I've been coming to Falmouth for years and had never been in Captain Kidd. Service was not effusive (but this is New England). It's on the pricey side but lobster roll and fish and chips were solid. Nice view of the inner harbor in Woods Hole. I'll be back.

We had a lot of time on our hands until our ferry to Martha's Vineyard. We had dinner at Captain Kidd. Lovely views overlooking Woods Hole Harbor. The lobster bisque was very good. The fish tacos were good if a little bland. The steamers appetizer was enormous and had several kinds of clams. The clam chowder was creamy but without... More

Birthday dinner but no special acknowledgement by rest. Table void of any thing, not even a small flower. $13. Martini watered down so much I thought I was drinking tap water in a fancy glass. The sea scallops were cookie cutter style, lightly battered, tasty but tossed into fryer from a frozen bag. The Fisherman's platter priced at $2.00 more... More

I am always receptive to criticism, it helps us to address issues and make changes where we need to. I assure you though, none of our seafood is frozen. We use only fresh fish delivered every morning, and fresh north Atlantic scallops. To reduce waste, we do have warm rolls and butter available upon request. We do not offer birthday... More

Great service in a really casual Cape Cod environment. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals from the lobster and pork dumplings special to the mahi-mahi fish sandwiches and kale salad everybody was pleased. This is my second visit to this restaurant the last time I sat at the bar had appetizers and drinks and also enjoyed it. If you... More

We had a hard time deciding where to go for dinner, so we picked Captain Kidd and had dinner on the deck overlooking the pond. The food was good, but expensive. The service was so-so, with our waitress not as attentive as we would have liked. They had a couple enjoyable craft beers on tap, and we had an enjoyable... More

Hello. I am happy that you come visit us every year. We gratefully appreciate your business. This year, we decided to shrink the menu a little so that we may expedite the food to the table quicker. This has been our struggle for the past couple years. If you have any suggestions as to what you may like to see... More
