First, the location is incredible. It's open and right on the water, so it's is lovely. The decor is nautical and not too fancy. The food is good, but extremely overpriced for the quality. If you know that going in, you won't have sticker shock, but be prepared to spend $30-40 per entree for standard seafood that could be had... More

Loved our evening here overlooking water! Fabulous food and service. Great happy hour with $1 oysters and music at bar. They have it daily 4-6 pm. Had coupon for dinner, but would go back without it. Seafood Newburgh is best we ever tasted. My fresh lobster was divine!!

Sit near doors that open up to the Harbor and take in the seaside air, see the Ferries come in from Martha's Vineyard. Great place for lunch or dinner! Lobster pie and fried oysters/clams are the best. Has the best Bloody Mary I be ever had! I go often as I can!

This was our first night out on the Cape from New York. It was also the first night that the Landfall was open for the season. They were very busy with a great bar crowd and atmosphere! The service was genuine and very nice! I had a super helpful conversation with the lovely hostess about the area. The nautical dining... More

The Landfall is unlike any other restaurant in Woods Hole. Located right on the water with doors that open right to the ocean, the view is fantastic and it's the most relaxing place to eat. Recommended especially for lunch so you can see the views in the daylight but dinner is good as well. Don't be afraid to ask to... More

Try to get a table next to the windows as there is a lovely view and it definitely sets the mood. Also has a great bar where locals gather for drinks.

The Landfall has been open in Woods Hole for 70 years, and there is good reason. The combination of great food and outstanding water views makes this place well worth the visit. Although they do serve steak dinners, the seafood here is what really stands out. The fried scallops are among the best in the area, and the french fries... More

The food and view are tremendous. You can also sit outside by the fire pit. Woods hole is a great little town and the landfall is one of its jewels. Staff was great too. Try the pastrami sliders or swordfish.

We were looking for a place for lunch in Woods Hole after riding the length of the Shining Sea Bikeway and we were HUNGRY!!! This looked appealing as it's right on the water overlooking the ferry and boats in the harbor. The interior is decorated with lots of nautical decor and very charming. I ordered lobster roll and must say... More
