Really enjoy coming to this spot. A great restaurant whose menu offerings range from mouth-watering rosemary focaccia bread to a variety of small plates to cioppino and rib eye—something for everyone.

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.

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!

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