How is this for a Cape Cod water view?

The Landfall is one of our favorite restaurants. It is located in Woods Hole, one of Falmouth’s 8 villages and just 4 miles from The Palmer House. The food is outstanding and the staff is friendly. Landfall is owned by two local brothers and the kitchen specializes in seafood, however, they do have excellent steaks, chops, and chicken in addition to meatless offerings.

My favorite meal is the “Local Steamers”. Steamers are steamed clams that are served with clam broth and drawn butter. I order it with garlic bread and a salad and I am in “New Englander’s Heaven”. Bill enjoys their “Seafood Newburg” over linguini.

Landfall is open from May through October and they are one of the few restaurants that will take reservations. They also have valet parking.

An enjoyable evening with friends and delicious fresh Cape Cod seafood.

Last week Bill and I went to the Flying Bridge with friends. We spent an enjoyable evening chatting and enjoying fresh delicious seafood. The Flying Bridge likes to boast that every seat is a water view and they are not exaggerating. The view of our busy harbor is beautiful. All of us enjoy seafood and the many choices. Our friends had the red snapper and the flounder, while Bill enjoyed the lobster ravioli and I had baked scallops. The service was excellent. Our server was a local college student who was thrilled to have such a great job for the summer.

If you like seafood and enjoy a water view, the Flying Bridge is the place to be. However, for those who prefer steaks, chops, or chicken, there are many menu items to choose from.

After an evening out it was lovely to go back to the Palmer House and relax with a cool drink on the front porch.
