Great way to start your vacation

Friendly place with good drinks and a terrific lobster roll. We have started our Martha's vineyard vacation by stopping here before the ferry two years in a row.

The onion soup was really good, lots of cheese and perfect broth. The miss was the Clam Chowder that while it had lots of potato chunks they short changed you on the Clam pieces which is unforgivable in Massachusetts. Disappointing.

This is not what I like to see! You're right, there should have been plenty of clams in the chowder, so I'm sorry to see yours was lacking. I hope to get another shot to show you our best. Take care, Jim, Owner More

There were 7 of us in our dinner party, 5 adults and 2 children. We had reservations and were seated on time. The view of the harbor was lovely even though we did not have a table at the water's edge. The food was excellent! The service was wonderful and not rushed at all. The prices were reasonable for the... More

The Landfall is situated in the middle of the little town of Woods Hole, right next to the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. The atmosphere is laid back and pleasant as it is right on the water with nice views. Great place for drinks. The food was just OK. Nice summer vibe.

The landfall is an institution in the woods hole area of Falmouth. It is always good. Try any fresh seafood. It's delicious!

We made a 7:15 reservation for a window seat & arrived just after 7:02 on June 25, 2015. I told the blonde hostess we were early & could wait until 7:15 for our requested seat. I saw that we were the only name listed on her reservation list. She quickly stated that it would be at least 30 minutes for... More

My husband and I went for dinner on a Thursday evening . It has a nice view and located right on the water BUT.......... The menu is fairly limited to old standbys that are either fried or smothered in butter so eating a bit healthy was not an option. I opted for the fried oysters... They were okay, came with... More

Danielle, so sorry to hear this! I wish I would've known about it sooner to remedy the situation. Nothing should ever taste like it's from the freezer, as everything is fresh, so I'm really sorry about those fries. It sounds like the service could've been more impressive too, so I'll speak with my team about that. I hope to get... More

We gave this restaurant another try, and Im glad we did ! The late lunch was very good. We sat right beside the water with a nice breeze coming in. Our server was very good and friendly.

We had a great visit. We were promptly seated for dinner at our reserved time and given (without asking) a beautiful window seat overlooking Great Harbor and Naushon Island. The restaurant was busy; never the less the service was fine and food great. Parking is difficult in Woods Hole, especially during lunch hours; however Landfall has it's own private lot.... More
