We had a wonderful meal at the promotional price 2 for 1. A great deal that we take advantage each year! Great food and ambiance as always.
Unfortunately our waitress was horrible. inattentive, short, impatient and uncooperative. When my friend asked about turning the lights up a bit as to see the menus, she said we don’t do that. We all pulled out our flashlights. We asked for a recommendation for wine, she tossed the wine list in front of us.
It went on this way until she brought the bill. There was an error. We asked for separate checks to benefit from the promotion. she said we don’t do that. It was then that I realized that a 20% tip on the full amount was already included. Hmmmmm.
The owner was advised on the situation and promised to take action. This waitress ruined an otherwise excellent meal and fun night.

Been going here for years! The Portuguese bread to start is incredible. The house salad with cranberries is delicious. Any seafood dish ever had is worth the money! Love being a regular here.

As usual, we enjoyed the dinner at Landfall. Oddly unfriendly greeting by hostesses, otherwise a nice evening.

We went there for our 35th wedding anniversary. The food was absolutely delicious and the presentation was fantastic. Our server was very attentive and brought our food out right away. The view was still pretty even though it was raining. Highly recommend the Landfall!

Our server never checked back with us after delivering our food. My lobster cracker did not work so I had to keep borrowing my husband's.

The stuffed lobster was mostly breadcrumbs and a one pound lobster. The salad was limp and tiny.

The side vegetables were mushy and not fresh.

Usually get a decent meal here. Not this time!!

Nice meal. Nothing special or negative about it. Service was OK but again nothing special. Not a very attentive wait staff but not bad either. Not coming by to ask if we would like more bread, didn't refill my iced tea, that sort of thing. A good B- meal.

Visited here with some out-of-town guests and had a wonderful dinner! Had a reservation so were seated promptly, and service though out the meal was very good. Great menu - we all opted for seafood choices, and they were all delicious! While we avoid Woods Hole during summers months, we'll definitely return here in off-season.

This was my 1st time here and the place is adorable. You have a view of the Island Queen. There is free parking with validation. The food and drinks were fabulous and so was our service. I will definitely be back!!

Beautiful day to have a lunch with my family at the Landfall. Staff are extremely pleasant, courteous and willing to help. The specialty cocktails were delicious and the food was very good. We had the salad with grilled sea scallops with a housemade almond, fig dressing. YUM! Another guest ordered a green salad with lobster salad. It was delicious! The location is awesome- overlooking the ocean. We will definitely be visiting again!

Fresh! Fresh Scrod broiled to perfection. Large portions. Dinner feature of Haddock and large shrimp also cooked to perfection. Lovely atmosphere but quite dark and difficult to see the menu. If you are looking for a puritan craving fresh steamed lobster this may not be the best choice as it only offers boiled 1 to 1.5 pound sizes which are most certainly not large enough. Definitely will go again.

Our dinner at Landfall was excellent as usual, although we were disappointed they had run out of garlic mashed potatoes, and that the draft beer was not colder. But these are small quibbles with what is always a dependably enjoyable evening in a warm and inviting (and not too noisy) environment.

The Landfall is my favorite restaurant in Woods Hole. The seafood is delicious especially the Scrod, the Lobster dishes and the broiled seafood platter. We go every time we visit the Cape.

Ordered baked stuffed lobster. $44
Received a 1 lb lobster. Little meat. Was supposed to be stuffed with seafood breading but was more like bread stuffing with seafood seasoning. No seafood detected. It is a tourist trap. High prices and low quality meal.

Had 745 reservations but did not get seated until after 8 PM. Ordered the lobster bisque for appetizers and it was excellent but the sirloin steak I ordered for my main course was inedible. It was extremely tough. My dinner companion ordered the Cajun swordfish which she thought was overlooked. The overall experience was so so. I will say the waiter did comp the steak. Drinks were also just average.
