The place has a nice seaside ambiance with a great view of the water. The food was OK, decently executed, but nothing special. The service the night I was there was sloppy. We asked for ketchup several times and did not get it until we were almost finished. Why couldn't they simply put a jar of ketchup on the table... More

In the winter this is a key location in the fairly sparse Wood's Hole town-center drinking and drinking ensemble. It has a nice warm fire place, decent food acceptably-priced drinks and a friendly atmosphere. I really liked it and even purchased a sweatshirt to remember it by.

We have visited and enjoyed many restaurants in Woods Hole but always return to Captain Kidd's with its big antique bar, casual rustic atmosphere and the location on the harbor. It is a wonderfully comfortable place to hang out and enjoy the reasonably priced and always-consistently good pub food. We often bring out of town guests here because of its... More

You have to try this if you are in Wood's Hole - it may only be the only place open if you are here on a weekday in the winter. We were here on a Saturday recently and it was the only place to grab a bite for lunch. The person I was with had been a waitress here in... More

The new winter menu, complete with a signature chicken pot pie and beef stew, and a risotto with root veggies is a mouth watering treat anytime of year, but what a comfort it is in winter! Warmed by an excellent wine and craft beer offering, a roaring fire and the friendliness of a seasoned staff, the Kidd is a great,... More

Captain Kidd is on Main St. among the many National Oceanographic Institute buildings. We were seated @ a table on the water. It was a clear windy day. Clam chowder was flavorful & contained tiny bits of clams & potatoes. Slaw was creamy & very good. Unfortunately the fried whole belly Clams were anorexic. Think Twiggy. Bread Pudding with whiskey...

Just like I said in reply to your yelp review, We thank you for your input and patronage. We did look into the status of the clams, and we did get a batch of "anorexic" looking clams. The ones that made it to your table should have never been sent out. We would like to make it up to you.... More

Captain Kidd is a beautiful location with a romantic water view. The building is rustic with attractive decor and if you like the outdoors you can sit outside on the deck or in the class enclosed dinning room. We sat inside at a comfy half circle both that if I wasn't a lady I would have put my feet up.... More
