Last summer we were wandering around the Cape just getting reacquainted with the area. Time during past visits had always been consumed with "family", and had never allowed enough opportunity to wander and explore to see what had changed. Woods Hole had always been a favorite spot - so off we went. It was early June - and the tourist hoards had not yet invaded (- as a former "summer local" - I don't count myself among them!), but there were certainly a respectable number of other retirees enjoying the pleasant brisk weather. We were hungry, and the name of the place caught our fancy - and comments heard from those leaving did too. It did not disappoint - it was fantastic. We had a really hard time deciding between their unique offerings, some of which were predictable for the area - lobster, 'chowda' (the real quahog kind), lobster roll - but no fried clams! The menu was definitely way above average fare for ANY type of place, - like a yellow fin tuna BLT - and the BEST lobster tacos and no-tortilla cod or lobster burritos you could only dream about! The staff was very friendly, the service very good, and all knew their food and sources. They had a busy trade in TO GO - but the food selections and quality is definitely NOT your typical "fast" stuff. The beef and wine selections were great, too. The small eating area was definitely informal, and the outside deck inviting. Not 'fine dining' atmosphere - but the food definitely WAS. They are open from 11 am - 10 pm during the 'season" (Memorial Day - Labor Day), and said to call ahead in the off season. Our next trip Cape will most likely be in the "off season" - but we are to call to see if they will be open! For us - this eatery is a MUST stop for every Cape visit. Chef Stephanie Mikolazyk was very happy to visit with us and share the philosophy of their specialties - great seafood in unique recipes, exquisite fresh produce,and a healthful menu. She has achieved her objectives!
