Food as always was well prepared and well presented. Service was very friendly and efficient. Like the overall atmosphere which is casual and intimate. While we enjoyed our meal and look forward to returning the prices may strike some as a bit high for a casual restaurant in Woods Hole.

We both had the lobster pasta dish and loved it. The waiter recommended the donuts for desert but I preferred taking a crème brûlée. Should have followed the waiter’s recommendation. Otherwise perfect evening.

Quick's Hole Tavern has an awesome view for people watchers. From our spot we could see the getting on and off of the Martha's Vineyard Ferry. We were so pleased with the atmosphere, the service and the meals. My husband was so quiet because his roasted chicken had a surprise bacon kick. He will no longer hunger for chicken wings and burgers. I had a lovely salad and chose the crab cakes for a light meal. The salad was flavorful with orange slices and pistachios. I don't think I could mimic it at home even if I tried. We also enjoyed seeing the kitchen crew working on their creations. Excellent all around!

I was at the restaurant twice in the past two weeks and while the staff is great, I had a series of disappointments with the food. The Kale salad I tied was way way too vinegary ... is that a word? :-) and they remade it thinking it was the lemon in the dressing, but no, it was the vinegar. I tried the Cauliflower fritters and all 4 at the table agreed that they seemed to be sans cauliflower. The grilled prime filet I had last week had so much garlic in the bed of sauce it was on that it overwhelmed the flavor of the entire meal. The broccolini was also a bit tired and rubbery. I also had oysters, which were a little shelly inside. In addition, you have no oyster forks, no lemon was served with it and no horseradish. So, while I really have really enjoyed the restaurant in the past years, this year it seems to be missing the mark.

Uncharacteristically disappointed . Server confused our order and one party had to send dinner back since it was completely wrong. This meant that one person in group
Had to wait almost 10-15 minutes to get their meal
While other guests in party were dining . While food was delicious and the server ended up comping the late meal, overall we felt that the prices do not justify the food- $39 for 3 scallops is simply too much. Gives us pause for thought and we may not be back for a while sadly as we ordinarily live this place!

Very nice selection on the menue including vegetarian options. The 2 waiters each thought the other had taken care of us so initial service was slow but once the mistake was realized service was attentive. We were the last to leave the restaurant and were not rushed or made to feel at all uncomfortable as we finished our meal and drinks. Overall a very nice experience.

We’ve eaten here a few times now and the food and the atmosphere keep bringing us back. The staff is great and the food is delicious. There’s so many reasons we end up in Woods Hole besides the ferry to the Islands. The Film Festival and the Bike Trail are two, but whatever the reason, we try to plan a stop at Quick’s Hole. It’s fun in the height of summer and it’s quiet, cozy, and romantic in winter.

Our dinner at Quick's Hole exceeding our expectations! The ambiance was incredible... very waterfront/nautical themed in an understated way. We ate upstairs in the dining room which is small (maybe 10 tables), but there was also a bar and an area to eat overlooking the kitchen - as well as a bar downstairs on the first level. Our service was great - very attentive but not rushed. And the food was to die for. As a vegetarian and pescetarian there were enough options to keep us satisfied. We shared butternut squash bisque and risotto fritters as an app - both were delicious! And we each got a salad for out entree (mine with salmon - which was blackened perfectly!). Would give this 5 stars, and DEFINITELY returning!

We celebrated with an early Valentine's Day dinner. The chicken was crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. The short ribs were outstanding--I loved the kimchee. And, my request for smashed potatoes instead of whipped potatoes was no problem at all. The Brussel sprouts were also delicious! It is very off-season, so the restaurant was conducive for conversation.( I bet the restaurant is mobbed during the summer season. You can watch the ferry arrive and passengers disembark.) Definitely worth returning to!

The old Leeside has been transformed into a Cape-appropriate fun restaurant/bar with good food, no less! The prices are not low but it is worth it to have a good meal. I predict this will be a major hot spot come summer. Charming to look out the windows upstairs onto the comings and goings of the MV ferry people.

Beth has upped her game with tonite's meal, a delicious fish stew in smoked squash broth. The mixed berry cobbler dessert was also tart sweet and perfect, plated really well also. In truth, this restaurant started out like a killer a few years ago, plateaued, then somewhat declined for unknown reasons. Ms. Colt has been unbelievably responsive to clientele over the years, however, and I think has gotten back on track to give you a very worthwhile food experience.

We had a 6:00pm reservation and were seated immediately. The Bartender greeted us warmly , offered us water and/or another beverage as we waited for our fourth guest. Soon after he arrived we met our waiter who was friendly and assisted us with our dinner choice; we all opted for the special which was a 8 oz Cajun rubbed swordfish w/mango salsa on risotto w/cauliflower and other veg. As noted the meal was outstanding as was the service and ambiance.

We've dined in Falmouth for the last couple of years and at the advice of my brother-in-law tried
Quicks. We arrived early 5PM and only one other couple was there. By the time we left it was packed. Best to go before the crowd arrives for the ferry to Martha's Vineyard to get a seat.
The food was outstanding, it took a bit before it arrived but that was due perhaps to the staff just getting kitchen going. Service was great, waitress always had a smile when she came over to the table and was helpful explaining the menu. Go there, won't regret it!
