What an amazing meal! the bone marrow was fantastic, and the noodles were equal to what I've eaten in Tokyo. Our server Pippa knew the menu and was very attentive. I had no idea Woods Hole had such great food ( and so close to the ferry) I think I'd take the boat over just for dinner. The home made ice cream... to die for... possibly the best chocolate and maraschino cherry ice cream I've ever had. I look forward to my next meal

Pie In The Sky Bakery & Internet Cafe

Reviewed By Elise R - Falmouth,MA

The Pie is the first eating establishment you encounter when entering Woods Hole. In the summer it is crowded with students attending the different educational institutions in Woods Hole. Everyone wants their great coffee, teas or a bite of their delicious bakery items. The quiches are fantastic here, as are their pies. These guys can bake! Everything is consistently delishious. The personnel behind the counter are kind of harried in the summer- as lines often extend outside the doors. They work incredibly hard to serve everyone as fast as they are able. We like to come here during the "off" seasons. We can grab a big table, relax with the paper or computers and enjoy a leasurely Woods Hole institution.

Coffee Obsession

Reviewed By HMFoodie - Natick, MA

My daughter and I stopped in after biking from Falmouth. The Woods Hole location has seating on the porch and inside and a cute, small play area for kids. Extensive selection of tea available hot or iced. The breakfast sandwich that I ordered was thumbs up - egg, cheddar cheese and sweet onions sandwiched between two slices of good whole grain bread. I couldn't resist trying a piece of their apple strudel and it didn't disappoint. Friendly, efficient service and they have discontinued their minimums on credit card transactions.

Maison Villatte

The wait is long but the outstanding food is worth the wait. Hiring more staff would be good for them and good for Falmouth. Make sure you have time and don't miss this spot
for breakfast or lunch. Delicious pastries and special sandwiches and quiche.
The people are very nice there are just not enough to service the establishment.

Jimmy's of Woods Hole

Reviewed By Jeffrey D

We ate lunch at Jimmy's on the recommendation of my son, who works in Woods Hole. We ordered two buffalo chicken subs and chicken tenders, with a side of spicy fries. The place is small, you order at the counter and then wait for you...MoreThanks for your business and your review. I love the buffalo sub myself. Hope you come back to try a burger. They're great too.

Quicks Hole Taqueria

Quicks Hole Taqueria is open in the summertime in Woods Hole, close to the ferry terminal to Martha's Vineyard. With lobster tacos, fresh salads, burritos and more, Quicks Hole is a great place for a quick bite. Free music on summer weekends, sangria, Cape Cod beer and a nice view of the water from the deck all make the Taqueria the place to be! Also check out our new churros with dipping sauce, a customer favorite. Our home made Quahog Chowder was named one of the best on Cape Cod by readers of the Cape Cod Times in 2013 and 2014.

You walk up to the counter, order and find a seat. Once the food is ready, it is brought to you. The guy taking orders was very friendly. The food was very good. The restaurant is small, but has outside seating as well as inside. Food was delivered quickly – a lot of people in line ahead of us, yet we still got our food quickly. I recommend that if you come in on the ferry and hope to grab a quick bite before going back to Boston, for example, try to get here as soon as possible because there are likely 10-20 other people with the same idea…

We dined here on a Wednesday nigh. We had made a reservation which is suggested. It has a cozy intimate atmosphere with a very nice bar.We started with calamari which was tender and sweet and very lightly fried served with a delicious sauce. My entree was pan seared scallops served on risotto. It was excellent! My husband had a steak which he enjoyed. We shared truffle fries which would have easily fed four. We had great service and look forward to our next visit!

Reviewed By Callisto S - S. Natick, MA

The regular drip coffee is good here, but the macchiato is excellent. We also sampled a couple of pastries they offered - the chocolate croissant was pretty flaky (fairly authentic), but the florentine was more cookie-like (not so Italian). Nonetheless, a good place for a pick-me-up, with lively local atmosphere.

Had dinner last night at Quicks Tavern, total experience was warm and welcoming, the menu had a variety of options and the food quality was great. The first floor is the Pub which has it's own vibe and menu all very comfortable food with a twist. We had dinner on the second floor cant say enough as to how good it was, we were a party of 6 with varied tastes and we were all able to find something that we liked from Korean short ribs to lobster mac & cheese, soups and chowders. Salads that come in appetizer or entre size and you can add a protein, lots of options. We had excellent service the hole night was very fun.

Our inn host and a friend steered us here and we are glad they did. The service, atmosphere and food were impeccable. The Glass Onion presents the appropriate level of class and sophistication without being pretentious - not an easy balance to establish and maintain.
