We had early reservation 530 by open table. So little rushed getting there.
Walked in up the stairs loved the decor, very clean, relaxing and friendly. Apps were delish, beer on tap was cold ❤️, entrees were perfect. We squeezed in the pumpkin donuts and took home the rest! Overall great experience made for a special relaxing evening.

A little hidden gem of a restaurant - I mean, you have to make it to the end of Woods hole to get to it. But if you're in the area and trully appreaciate good tasty food, do not miss Quicks Hole Tavern. The food is delicious, very high standard, and the drinks list is very well fitting the food choices. And it's really nice to see the activity in the kitchen. A not-to-miss restaurant on the Cape.

Great location over looking the Woods Hole Ferry docks and terminal. Water views in back ground. Relatively small dining room, yet comfortable. Excellent, unique food, well priced for the quality. Craft beers available as well as a decent wine list. Menu changes throughout the year. Cape Cod is very casual so sharp attire or neat jeans are fine.

Had heard great reviews about this restaurant and the food did not disappoint!
We hit the sunset just right so the views were outstanding and we enjoyed watching the ferries come and go, an added perk.
Small house salad had a delicious vinaigrette and was big enough for 2! Crab cakes also had a unique dill seasoning and sauce that was quite tasty.
We were there on the first night of the limited winter menu and was a little disappointed that the only fish on the menu was salmon. We both were looking forward to a nice "Cape Cod" fish or seasonal fish special that we saw on the menu when researching and reading the reviews. We made the most of the limited choices, lobster mac and cheese and salmon and were not disappointed. Great flavors and good portions!
Of course we had to try the famous donuts for dessert and they lived up to the hype. Yummy!
Service was great and we never felt rushed or that we were kept waiting too long. Kevin did great despite the fact that he looked like a whirling dervish(short staffed?).
The only disappointment was the limited winter menu, wish I saw that on the website!
Excellent food and views!

My daughter was thrilled to be able to get a lobster roll on a gluten free roll. Lobster rolls are one thing we have basically given up eating out for the last seven years, so it was a real treat! Thank you!

Delicious, creative food that is cooked w/In a few feet of the tables. The ratatouille w the flounder is one of the best I’ve eaten. The “pig candy” is fun. Nice wine and beer selection. Parking can be complicated, so leave a little time. The main dining room is upstairs and overlooks the harbor at Woods Hole. We had a delightful dining experience.

The food was good but not outstanding. For value it was below average. The potion size was good but $27 chicken plate is ridiculous. They also had a salad plate that was $13 then to have a protein with it, it was another $13-$15. I thought for the price the atmosphere would have been a bit more intimate. It was truly a tavern by the water. Okay place to go if you have the extra cash.

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!
