We had a hard time deciding where to go for dinner, so we picked Captain Kidd and had dinner on the deck overlooking the pond. The food was good, but expensive. The service was so-so, with our waitress not as attentive as we would have liked. They had a couple enjoyable craft beers on tap, and we had an enjoyable... More

Hello. I am happy that you come visit us every year. We gratefully appreciate your business. This year, we decided to shrink the menu a little so that we may expedite the food to the table quicker. This has been our struggle for the past couple years. If you have any suggestions as to what you may like to see... More

The Captain Kidd Restaurant in Woods Hole was recommended by some local boaters we met in Barnstable after doing a skydive. We were lucky to be seated outside on the pier overlooking the water on a perfect summer day. The lobster rolls we ordered were stuffed with plenty of large pieces of meat, and tasted delicious without the addition of... More

Can't really beat the location and views off the back deck dining area. Very impressive. The staff were all vibrant, smart young people. The food was not great as I had an overcooked tasteless steak with a tiny overcooked lobster tail. Smothering a steak in steak sauce in the kitchen does not make for a good steak. But I didn't...

I brought my nephew there last week on 6/14/16, since he is staying in Falmouth for the summer. We were seated out by the water, the furthest tables from the restaurant. It was a gorgeous day and little wind, so the tables on the water were perfect. I have to say the service was delayed but having such a nice... More

The Captain Kidd, the classic Woods Hole bar and restaurant, was renovated a couple of years ago. A lot of the old dark wood got a fresh coat of paint and while it seems cleaner and brighter it's lost some of its old charm. The food offerings were revised, too, and seem less wonderful than before. I do like the... More

Like so many of our locals and returning summer people who have been coming to the Captain Kidd over the past many years, change is something that may be difficult. Especially at a place that has been an iconic staple for many generations. I myself miss the rustic old charm, but change is something we needed to do. I hope... More

I typically stop here for some drinks and raw bar. I love the oysters and shrimp cocktail appetizers. drinks are strong and food is fresh. the scallop dinner is delicious and I highly recommend it. I like to sit near the windows on the barrels (not the most comfortable but a great view). Parking is tough, but it is near... More

Nice location over the water. Service was very friendly and so was the overall atmosphere but the food was nothing special. We were there for dinner. We ordered soups and seafood dishes, none of which was particularly good. Dessert was better.

Clam chowder and lobster bisque are average. Nothing to write home about. Did have a couple craft brews on draft.

My mother, sister and I were visiting Woods Hole and chose Captain Kidd's for lunch. My mother and I ordered broiled scallops with Ritz crackers and my sister ordered the Blue Burger. When the plates arrived our scallops were deep fried. Our waitress (who was a complete angel!!!!) apologized profusely and took complete responsibility for entering the order incorrectly. My...
