A new restaurant has opened in Woods Hole, in the location long occupied by the Leeside. Brought to you by the owners of the Woods Hole Inn and the Quicks Hole Taqueria (next door), this new Tavern offers fine dining with water views, specializing in new American cuisine with craft beers and a full bar.
Great views from the second floor dining room over all of Woods Hole harbor and the busy Steamship ferry terminal with service to Martha’s Vineyard makes this the place to be at sunset. The menu includes upscale items like Angus Burgers with truffle fries, “pig candy” a maple roasted pork shoulder on a bed of apple guava puree, and house-made Quahog Fritters. There are many vegetarian options, as well as a number of smaller “sides” making it easy to craft your perfect meal.
The Tavern is also known for it’s Quahog Chowder, which has been named a top-ten chowder on Cape Cod by readers of the Cape Cod Times two years in a row. Recently names one of the “best new restaurants on Cape Cod” by Cape Cod Magazine, the Quicks Hole Tavern is worth a stop as you visit Woods Hole.
Boston Magazine also recommended a stop here in their June cover story called “Summer in the City — 75 ways to take the heat in style” which reads, “This year, the team behind the beloved Quicks Hole taco stand transformed the Leeside Restaurant into a new tavern specializing in cocktails strong enough to make you forget the ferry altogether…”
Quicks Hole Tavern is located at 29 Railroad Avenue in Woods Hole, across from the ferry terminal. Full menu is available on their website. The Tavern plans to be open year round.
The original Quicks Hole located next door at 6 Luscombe Avenue in Woods Hole is also open for the summer with lobster tacos, burritos, salads and more.
