Fishmonger’s Café has been providing Local Seafood, Quality Meats, Fresh Salads & Vegetarian Dishes, Creative Sandwiches, and a Ridiculously Good Breakfast to locals, young people, scientists and tourists alike for over 40 years in Woods Hole. Executive Chef, Troy Patterson, provides a menu with variety to please all palettes, boasting high end seafood, beef and vegetarian dishes in addition to Cape Cod Fried Classics.

If the food doesn’t bring a smile to your face, the Bar surely will. We offer 10 continually-rotating Craft Beers on Draft, Imaginative Beer Cocktails – a fusion of draft lager, hard cider, spirits & liquers, a pleasing Wine Selection, and our own Signature Cocktails. Kinda hungry ? The Monger Munchies Bar Menu is the perfect complement to any libation, featuring appetizers like Fried Pickles with Ranch dipping sauce, Arancini with warm Marinara, and Croquettes with Cilantro Lime sour cream and a bacon crumble and more !

Ready for Dessert ? You will be once you catch the aroma wafting from our bakery. We make all of our desserts in house in our own bakery. We have Monger staples like Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce and Brownie Sundaes as well as seasonal items like Key Lime Pie and Apple-Cranberry Cobbler ala Mode.


This building is built on pilings which means it literally sits atop Vineyard Sound and directly next to the entrance to the Eel Pond Harbor Drawbridge. With a Casual and Comfortable ambiance, it’s the perfect place to sit and watch the people bustle around the heart of Woods Hole on main street or watch the boats passing through. We’re located a stone’s throw from the Steamship Ferry to Martha’s Vineyard, and you’ll know it when you hear the steam whistle sound !

We are locally owned and staffed, we buy local produce and seafood, and we love our locals too. Fishmonger’s Café not only personifies the Woods Hole of ‘the good ole days’ but also of the present; eclectic & upbeat with a dash of Hippie vibes. Come in and see what we have to offer.
