Description: Quicks Hole Taqueria is open in the summertime in Woods Hole, close to the ferry terminal to Martha's Vineyard. With lobster tacos, fresh salads, burritos and more, Quicks Hole is a great place for a quick bite. Free music on summer weekends, sangria, Cape Cod beer and a nice view of the water from the deck all make the Taqueria the place to be! Also check out our new churros with dipping sauce, a customer favorite. Our home made Quahog Chowder was named one of the best on Cape Cod by readers of the Cape Cod Times in 2013 and 2014.

Great Chowder! Went in for a late evening snack and this place was buzzing with folks. Wait staff was very attentive. Very good menu with seafood and other specialties.

Hi Sam --

Thanks for the nice mention of our Quahog Chowder made fresh daily in Quicks Hole. Readers of the Cape Cod TImes agreed with you this year naming us one of the top ten chowders on all of Cape Cod! Thanks, and we hope to see you again soon.

my best,

“Scrumptious!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This is a 'mustn't miss' eating place.
It's counter service with a menu we, as English, found a little confusing. However the staff were very helpful and what we ordered was of the highest quality.
We had a tuna wrap and a lobster roll. We both thought that they were delicious.
Sophisticated dining? No. High quality fresh food? Yes, yes, yes!!

“East Coast Invades East Coast”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

A delicious dinner while we were staying upstairs at the Woods Hole Inn. I wish they stocked real Coke in the glass bottles (with real sugar instead of the corn syrup), but that's sort of picky. The food was amazing, and that's what's important. We had shrimp quesadillas and the mac & cheese with lobster.

“Wicked Fresh and they are not kidding!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

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!

“Different kind of food.”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We were there about 3 P.M. I had the quesadillas and my wife had the lobster mac and cheese. I finished mine but my wife could not finish hers. You order from a counter and then sit down and they bring you your food. There is a lot of outside seating. Staff very friendly.
