Food was delicious. A bit noisy but not not too bad. Lived sitting next to the window with the breeze and the water view. Service was great. We will definitely be going back.

True Cape Cod ambiance. Service did not anticipate needs, had to request items like water, bread. Some portions of meal were great while others like the baked potato were hard and cold. Would go again more for experience than for value of food.

We had our anniversary dinner at Landfall, sat outside near the fire table & had an absolutely delightful evening. The food was delicious and our waiter was simply charming. A very memorable night, for sure!

A beautiful evening, watching the sunset, coupled with outstanding service and dependable, fresh, well-prepared food. Landfall is simply a family favorite, and our out-of-town guests were most impressed. Thank you.

Table overlooking the water made my wife very happy. Possibly, the best French onion soup I've ever had. Went twice in three weeks and all the food is excellent.

The Hostess at the front desk was so kind & efficient
I wish I could remember her name
She kept letting us know how long before our table would be ready. Just keeping customers informed goes a long way

Food was definitely way overpriced! Service was decent. My seafood platter looked great when it arrived, but I quickly realized the plate was at least 3/4 French fries. The total number of fried clams, scallops, and shrimp was less than ten. There was one small piece of fish about 1/2 the size of a “fish stick”! Very disappointing!!
The lobster roll that my wife ordered was decent size with no fillers, but also overpriced.
Definitely would not return….. there must be much better options for dining in Woods Hole!

We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary. Upon request via Open Table, I asked for a table by the window, and we got the best seat in the restaurant. Open doors on both sides of our table gave us a beautiful view of the water and of the ferries coming and going. The service was very good. The soup snd salad were outstanding. The lobster was so fresh. We had a wonderful experience, and we will remember this experience for years to come!

It’s on the water, it’s an interesting style with nautical stuff like buoys, etc. the food is expensive (I never mind this if it’s good), but man oh man is the food awful.

The lobster casserole is $50 and it’s the size of like a flan dish…it was also about 90% claw meat :-(. Should’ve asked I guess.

The lobster roll was ok but I wouldn’t even say top 25 in the cape…it was a strange “Luke warm” style. Didn’t have much Mayo and no butter but it was a little dry…also had too much claw meat (I’m talking the flat rubbery stuff)…worst part is I bit into a big shell and then had to uncomfortably spit out what I had in my mouth. It also had a hair in it but honestly it looked harmless so I pulled it out and tried to eat the rest. We didn’t finish anything though.

The shrimp cocktail was $4 a piece and they still weren’t completely thawed 🙄. They were very similar to buying a bag of frozen large (definitely not jumbo). They weren’t fishy and tasted fresh despite being from the grocery store freezer.

Lastly, the bread and salad: bread was just white bread with some garlic butter and was soggy. The salad…we didn’t touch at all. It was clearly straight out of a bag you’d find at the grocery store, but the carrot sticks and greens were wilted and mushy. Yuck.

I say go if you don’t care about prices…and you need to burn time before your ferry ride. I would never recommend going here just for dinner. I was actually quite embarrassed on my date :-/.

Great experience! Our server was amazing! We ate before catching our ferry over to Martha’s Vineyard so time was of the essence and they were able to accommodate us. Make sure you have reservations though!

We had a great dinner at Landfall. The staff is wonderful, the environment is very nice. We got a table by the french doors with a full view of the ocean. We really enjoyed our food. I had the baked lobster stuffed with seafood, hubby had the Savannah lobster. Oysters were great! Highly recommend this place. Parking available, there is street parking and they have a lot in less than 2 minute walking distance.

It took almost an hour from the time of ordering to receive bread and salads. Our waitress was nice, but appeared inexperienced in time and customer management. All in all by the time we received our food and hunted down our check we were at the restaurant for almost two hours.

For context, we were seated at 5:00 p.m. and the restaurant was not particularly busy when we placed our order. We also had to be somewhere close by by 7:00 p.m. as otherwise it is a beautiful location and we would not have minded the extended wait for our meals.

In the end, we ended up having to ask one of the hostesses for our check. As I was leaving the hostess area, our waitress appeared and said to the hostess "they seem to be in a rush for some reason." The hostess ended up clearing our table and taking our payment and we did not see our waitress again.

We were seated by one of the open sets of French doors that overlook the water, which was beautiful and is the reason we will come back. Our prior experiences have always been pleasant with speedy, professional service so this was an odd experience.
