Great evening at The Landfall! All four of us enjoyed fresh & delicious seafood,: steamers, lobster rolls and baked stuffed lobsters. Seated along window with beautiful night view off Woods Hole.

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.

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.

The lobster was totally over boiled. That wasn’t a good dinner. But the overall restaurant is great. Great location, beautifull spot. I suggest to take another food than the lobster boild.

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.

The Landfall was wonderful in every way. One reviewer suggested requesting a seat by the window which I did. Perfect spot. You could hear the waves lapping a the dock. The server was so pleasant and knowledgeable about the meals. The chowder and salads were delicious. I had lobster pie and it was generously filled with prime lobster meat. The lobster bisque was accompanied with a small ramekin of fresh lobster. That was a first for me but a very nice touch. Often the bisque is short on lobster. The Portuguese garlic bread was warm and tasty. I loved that they offered Smidgen desserts. Smaller versions of the regular more generous portions. The Summer berry cobbler is to die for. I am going to tell my friends about The Landfall, it will be a part of next summers vacation. Now the bonus....free parking. Yes you heard right in Woods Hole they have a parking lot.
