Got to Falmouth and hopped on bikes for a quick ride into Woodshole and stumbled upon Landfall. Nice open air restaurant; beautiful breeze; good service; food was tasty. Perfect way to start our time off!

Our seating location in the Landfall was very nice: a window table overlooking the water. The service was quick and attentive. It was the food that I had a problem with.

I ordered a bowl of Lobster Bisque. Why order a cup for $7.00 when a bowl goes for $7.50? Unfortunately, though creamy and rich, it was essentially devoid of lobster, except for the micro sized bits most of which tasted like cheese, not lobster. This fact was true for both my soup and my girlfriend's. I concluded that the waitress didn't apply the ladle deeply enough, though I can't be sure. She had no problem taking the soup back, though I would have preferred an explanation or at least a retry. Se la vie.

My order of Chicken Francaise over pasta was also a disappointment. The water on the bottom of the pasta wasn't drained sufficiently and this allowed the francaise sauce to drain away from the chicken leaving a rather thin, barely noticeable remainder. Worse, the chicken, though cooked well, was slightly chewy. My side order of sweet potato fries was small, but well worth its $2.00 charge. I'd guess that about 75% of the fries were crispy. The salad was very good.

My order of a small hot fudge sundae was also very good. I appreciated that, as far as desserts go, the Landfall allows for both regular and smaller portions.

The restaurant, at least at 7pm on July 4th weekend, was very loud and any sign of noise dampening is vacant in the restaurant's construction. Being in the corner, though, as we were, it was tolerable.

I would give the Landfall a second chance, though it will not be my first choice for any second chances I have stored. I'd rate my experience in the C+ to B- range, due to its convenient location for my stay, the view at my table and the attentiveness of the service, even without the 100% effort that had the potential to save the bisque.

We ate here right before we hopped on the ferry to Martha's Vineyard.
We both ordered a whole lobster and it was super yummy!
The decor is super cute and is so homey.

Ate lunch here after riding the Shining Sea Bikeway to Woods Hole. View was nice. Food was decent, but overpriced. My husband and I split a seafood dish which made it more reasonable. Our service was lacking, too.

On the water with great views this full selection restaurant was an experience I had to repeat, so I did. Lunch and dinner meals were great and servers were attentive, but in no way bothersome.
