Quicks Hole is a lobster taco shack on the waterfront in Woods Hole serving killer fish tacos, burritos, lobster rolls, soups, salads and much more. Quicks Hole is open from May – September and is across the street from the Martha’s Vineyard ferry terminal.
Order at the counter and they call your number at this busy lunch and dinner spot. Come early for lunch as the water view deck tends to fill up. You know you have found the spot the locals frequent when a cadre of Harley Davidson’s roar into the parking lot and fifteen leather-clad guys and gals saunter in for pitchers of sangria and Cape Cod beer to wash down their lobster tacos. Everyone tries the house-made churros before they leave, a delectable confection dredged in cinnamon sugar and served with spicy chocolate dipping sauce.
On Thursdays and Sundays in the summertime, there is free music on the deck from 6 pm to sunset. Locals gather to enjoy the free show, and Vineyard-bound travelers with their rolling bags tend to linger, miss a ferry or two, to enjoy the music and the great food. Sometimes a line develops, but it moves quickly and there always seems to be a seat opening up as the food comes out of the kitchen.
Last summer, Quicks Hole Taqueria hosted the first James Beard Foundation Celebrity Chef dinner in the area, with chefs from Chez Panisse in Berkeley California and Martha Stewart Living in New York City. The event raised money for the Falmouth Hospital Emergency Extension, and was a huge success with an amazing gourmet repast served to 100 supporters under a tent as the sun set over Woods Hole’s Great Harbor.
Known for a commitment to the farm-to-table movement, Quicks Hole sources from Nobska Farm, Allen Farms, Morning Glory Farm and many others. Fish and lobster also sourced from local waters, with an keen eye to sustainability and freshness.
