Great food, great location, great happy hour entertainment, overall great place! We sat on the patio around a big fire pit. I recommend the frozen mudslides and happy hour hors d'oeuvres.

The Landfall Restaurant is a must see for anyone visiting the Falmouth area. The dining room is decorated with hundreds of buoys, pictures, and other less-common nautical decor. The menu offers tasty seafood options for all ages. However, the strongest aspect of this restaurant is the bar/band nights. The bar staff is the most friendly and knowledgeable group of people...

This is a very great seaside dining restaurant which is both seasonal and year round. The venue is quite good and the menu varies from seafood dishes towonderful pasta choices. The bar is well-stocked and the prices for the drinks are moderate. You will enjoy watching the fairies, fishing boats, and selling those passing by entering the Woods Hole passage.... More

Location was ideal to our B & B, but overall was not impressed with our meal. Very overpriced for what you got. Portions were not large at all

Love the location of the Landfall restaurant and love the food. The best clam chowder in the area! Lobsters,scrod,scallops, freshest seafood you can get, or if you are in the mood for steak, I recommend the Filet Mignon, extra thick with sautéed mushrooms and don't forget the bernaise sauce. Dinners from $9-38 served with hot Portuguese toast,salad and a choice... More

The décor is rustic/nautical, and we like it, but if you’re wider in the beam than normal, the captain’s chairs that they have for seating are NOT going to be comfortable. The view is nice, of water and different kinds of ships, including ferries to Martha’s Vineyard. Parking is an issue, even with a small lot across the street. It... More

In Woods Hole for a business meeting, and dining alone. Landfall was one of the few places still open. Staff was very nice, view was very picturesque, and the food was terrific. Fried oysters were perfect, and the cole slaw was a surprise--not many places can make a decent cole slaw. Only disappointment was that my glass of wine came... More
