Great place for fresh seafood. Or grab a burger and fries, even, cajin fries. If you don't mind "fried food", this is a good choice.

One of our favorite places to eat every summer. Family owned and such a friendly staff. We love their fried oysters, fish sandwich, and kids menu is wonderful! We love stopping here year after year and supporting this honest little seafood market!

Excellent, fresh seafood. I had the shrimp plate and a family member had the Obama burger which they loved. The owners were very friendly and suggested other places for us to visit on the island.

John's has the best fish on island. They're the only fish shop I go to and have been going to them for well over 30 years. Excellent appetizers and other snacks as well.

We stopped here for some food before catching the ferry back to Woods Hole. We had their new grilled sandwiches and what a treat they were. Tasty swordfish in a lemon flavouring with lettuce and tomato in a grilled fresh bread roll. We sat outside...More
