Had dinner there on 10/9. Had burgers and was one of the best hamburgers I've ever eaten. Good White Russians. Only beer selection was a few local craft beers. Found a good local lager. Slightly pricey, $20 for a burger, but excellent quality. I would...More

We had an excellent meal tonight from the pear and burrata salad through the apple cheesecake trifle. The service was stellar and the view was a beautiful New England sunset. So pleasant to find a finely crafted meal in a small town.

I previously reviewed this restaurant and the only negative that I noted was the noise level being too high. I am not sure whether they installed noise-deafening panels (it appears that is the case) or it is because I was in another location in the...More

Have to thank Trip Advisor for visit to this scrumptious restaurant! This is a very different approach to resort dining. Entrees were diverse (as in choices) but all specular, flavorful and gourmet. Service was outstanding ask for Nick. Tender seafood, homemade breads and desserts. Yummmmm!

Really marvelous food - every course - in a lovely, but not to precious setting. Service was impeccable and unobtrusive. Not inexpensive, but a good value nonetheless.

What a friendly place, food was excellent, really comfortable, exactly what we were looking for. New owners wasn't sure what the change would be like and it's for the better

Chef-owned and operated restaurant, on the water's edge, with truly farm-to-table, local products, sophisticated "home-style" cuisine. Seasonal menu, weekly specials. Bread made on premises. Great vibe/ambiance, thanks to the chef-husband/manager-wife team. Despite crowds and occasional wait, all moves smooothly and effortlessly.

I ate here with three coworkers after we went looking for a meal away from the conference we were attending. We went in knowing nothing about it and agreed it was one of the best meals we've ever had. Each person ordered something different from...More

Leave enough time in Woods Hole to find parking spot. Parking lot next to the restaurant is $4.00. Worth it!!!
