The ’Monger has been the most consistent place in town since Frances Buehler opened it in 1974. The eclectic, international menu features Thai spring rolls, tuna satay, and fried calamari, as well as fisherman’s stew, tofu and veggies, and rice and refried beans. Savvy patrons order off the specials menu. Specials change throughout the day and sometimes during a meal as well—keep an eye on the blackboard. The location and atmosphere couldn’t be better, overlooking the Eel Pond Bridge in Woods Hole. And even though the ’Monger is always bustling, the friendly staff keep it comfortable. Evenings sparkle, thanks to candlelight, shiny wooden tables, and lots of little windowpanes. Friendly bar.
