About

Just across the street from the Martha’s Vineyard ferry terminal, Quicks Hole Tavern is the perfect place to watch your ship come in, enjoy the sunset over Woods Hole harbor, or appreciate the hustle bustle of this thriving port town.

With a commitment to farm-to-table sourcing, Quicks Hole Tavern boasts “wicked fresh” local ingredients. The menu changes with the seasons and offers original twists on local seafood, cheese and charcuterie boards, burgers, freshly made soups and salads--plus an extensive craft beer list, a fine selection of wines, and a full bar.

As we head into the chillier temperatures of fall, please know that we are keeping the windows cracked for air circulation, all while turning the heat on. We remind you to dress accordingly, as it may be a little cooler inside (for your safety!) than you are used to. Looking forward to seeing you tonight!

With Covid there is only a small number of tables, so glad I made a reservation, well worth it. Was only disappointed when waitress had issues making cappuchino at the end. Great service otherwise.

The service was the best best part of our dinner. Food combinations were unusual, would not go back. 10% Hospitality charge for back of house staff in addition to your tip.

At first I was daunted, service was ok. The food was the saving grace. a bit overpriced and backhouse gratuity is included with the bill. The chef makes it worth the while!

It was a slow nite but as the evening went on more people came in. Nice location looking at the water and great people watching as the Martha's Vineyard Ferry comes and goes right there at the Woods Hole dock. Food was excellent and well presented.

Everything was great about our dinner at Quicks Hole, except when we got the bill. To our surprise, the scotch on the rocks with water cost $2 extra on account of the “ice”! We we asked about that, were told that it was for an extra amount of scotch. It didn’t taste like it - very weak drink. Seems like a cheesy way to charge, and then not give you much of a pour. To bad to spoil a nice dinner with that bad taste! Next time no cocktail!

We ordered a meal last night for curbside pickup. We showed up outside at the designated pickup place at the designated time. No food. We called the number that the confirmation email said to call. No one answered. We called three more times. No answer. We then went into the restaurant to get our food which we had already paid for. The staff person could not find our order. She didn’t even attempt to search for our order for 20 minutes and could not find our order. All the while a number of other customers showed up and were waiting for their orders. We finally found our order not the staff member. It appears the order was on the counter the whole time as were a number of other orders that were presumably the orders of the other people who were waiting in line. When we got the food home it was cold and unsatisfying. We immediately called and left a voice message asking for an apology and a refund. We never received a return call. We called again the next day and were put on hold for 5 minutes before we hung up and wrote this review. We previously only had a good experience with this restaurant. We have had a very good experience with most other restaurants in the area during the pandemic. This was our worst experience.

Everything was wonderful. The food was impeccable; service was outstanding; nice ambiance too.
We had reserved a table, for which we were glad, because it was full.
We will be back next time we're in town!

Really nice place in a quaint little town. It's right across the street from the water. Also a plus is free meter parking from 6pm - 2am, and a solid kids menu. 20 minutes from the Seacrest Resort.

Great food, great service! I made a reservation and requested a window seat, which was fulfilled!! I have a gluten and dairy allergy....makes me super fun to go out with 😉 but the chef altered the salmon to accommodate me and, I'm pleased to say, I was reaction free! The meal was amazing, my husband also got the salmon but his was "normal" and he was just as happy! Will definitely be back!

This is my favorite restaurant on the Cape. The menu changes often and I’ve never been disappointed with any of the offerings. Cocktails and mocktails are tasty. Service is prompt and efficient. I only wish the dining room was larger! It can be hard to get a table. Not recommended for large groups (unless you eat at the bar downstairs, which has a tasty menu of bar food.)

The tavern salad and lobster roll were great, but the appetizers were dry and tasteless, the polenta was runny and the service was incredibly slow. Our server was also tending bar and seemed rushed and overstretched. Never came to ask if we’d like a second drink or dessert. Eventually we had to track her down behind the bar to ask for the bill.

Both fish dishes were excellent (black cod on quinoa patty and scallops). However, gnocchi and pulled chicken dish was barely edible - dry and tasteless. Our teen who eats almost anything didn't finish and didn't want to bring home as leftovers. Service was slow though we weren't in a rush.

For a $200 bill for party of four (w/two draft beers, one shared appetizer and no dessert), unless you have fish, overall meal not worth the cost. Recommend eating 2x downstairs with better value Quickhole pub menu!

We love Quicks Hole but were disappointed in our meal.
We had the Lobster fettuccini and the pasta was stuck together and there was very little lobster in the dish for 44.00 per person.
