Landfall’s 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.
