The Captain Kidd Grows Up

The Captain Kidd grows up, this century old bar located on the waterfront in Woods Hole, carries great history along with a remodeled décor that exudes class, charm and comfort. This picture-perfect water front venue provides the perfect ambiance for that romantic dinner date, a night out with the family and friends, drinks at the bar, holiday dinners, anniversaries, weddings, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers or any special event you are celebrating.

The history radiates from the moment you walk in to the Captain Kidd with a mural in the bar area created by Joe Miron, known as the painting bartender who was prominent in Falmouth’s social and art scene in the mid-1940s into the 1970s. The hand-carved oak and mahogany bar was salvaged from the Old Rockingham Hotel in Lowell and installed in the Kidd in 1946. It was at least 82 years old at the time, and almost 70 years later, still stands as the one of the most impressive and beautiful bars on Cape Cod. Another Falmouth artist Lloyd T. Nightingale, painted the panels between the mirrors over the bar, all together creating this amazingly artistically beautiful space.

The remodel has taken this historically entrenched waterfront restaurant and bar and transformed it into a perfect oasis to eat out, enjoy friends and celebrate special events in one of the most esthetically pleasing and beautiful water front dwellings on Cape Cod. The Captain Kidd is the perfect venue to celebrate weddings, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, anniversary’s or any event special event you plan. With water-front views of Eel Pond Harbor from any of the comfortable indoor or outdoor doc dining areas, the Captain Kidd offers the perfect location to bring your special event to a reality.

The extensive menu offers local seafood, steaks, a wide array of appetizers, raw bar, daily specials, pizza and their signature chowder and lobster roll. At the bar they serve hand-crafted cocktails, have 12 beers on tap, and offer an extensive wine list. They will be introducing sushi and raw bar on Tuesday nights, and for football nights they offer appetizer specials and 80” TV’s to enjoy the game with friends.

“We are looking to provide great service, delicious food and a memorable night out” said co-owner Bill Murray, “our menu is proving to serve those who want a nice dinner out, want a quick bite to eat and others who want a drink at the bar, we are happy that we can cater to all audiences”.

“There was a lot of thought that went into this remodel” said co-owner Jamie Crowley“We needed to keep the history, utilize the waterfront space and provide a venue that people found desirable to hold an event in. With the reaction we are getting, I would say it has proven to have made a great impression”.
