The Quarterdeck Restaurant is open for lunch and dinner as well and is a favorite of the locals. Mostly known for their vast seafood offerings and clam chowder, the Quarterdeck has a vast menu that also includes numerous appetizers, salads, and great hamburgers as well as steaks. At the Quarterdeck you will experience the feeling of being below deck in a sailing vessel. A good deal of the interior was salvaged from MacDougall’s Boatyard in Falmouth Harbor with some of the wood dating back to the late 1600s. A local artist, Joe Downs, is responsible for the design of the interior and created the stained glass in the dining room. This stained glass was once the front windows from a church in Maine that was destroyed by a fire or hurricane.
Stone L’Oven has outstanding Pizza as well as panninis, italian dishes such as lasagna, home made soups and generous and tasty salads. You can watch the chefs hand throw the pizza crusts as they have an open kitchen.

Some of the favorite groups at the Pub include Stage Door Canteen (big band amazing music) and the Shenanigans (music and fun to be had).

If you do not mind a short 3 mile excursion of lunch or dinner or you can drive, walk the Shining Sea Bikeway or take the Trolley down to Woods Hole in Southern Falmouth. There are a number of restaurants in the Woods Hole Village and we share two guest favorites on this page.
The first is the Landfall Restaurant. The Landfall is another wonderful Falmouth restaurant that is family run. It was started in 1946 by a man who grew up around Falmouth in the summertime and his sons now own and run it. Similar to The Quarterdeck a lot of interesting wood and material was recycled and used in the building of the Landfall. Much of the wood came from shipwrecks and old buildings. The Landfall has a beautiful stained glass artifact which is a window showing the whart and a waterfront scene. The window came from a prominent mansion of Penzance Point.
Next we share the newest restaurant jewel in Woods Hole known as Quicks Hole Tavern. Building on the success of the seasonal restaurant Quick Hole Tacqueria comes this year round high quality “farm to table” lunch and dinner hot spot. Located just across the street from the Martha’s Vineyard Steamship Authority terminal this restaurant offers great food, drink and views of the ferry’s comings and goings. In the short time since the restaurant opened in 2014 it has become a guest favorite and the press received from Cape Cod foodies and beyond has been remarkable. For Fan Favorite dishes click here.
There are a couple of hot spots for breakfast and lunch in town , yet since we provide a full breakfast our guests tend to miss these hot spots for breakfast and opt to visit them for lunch. In the few months of the year when the Inn is closed we make a point to visit and enjoy each of these spots for breakfast.
The first spot we share is The Pickle Jar Kitchen located at the east end of Falmouth Village Main Street and a few short minutes walk for the Inn. This is a family run restaurant with 2 couples who have been best friends since college. For a quick read on Fan Favorite dishes at Pickle Jar and some interesting trivia click here.
Another lunch spot is Maison Villatte, an authentic French bakery well known for all their delectable treats. At Maison Villatte you will also see a spry lunch business with items such as their baked monte cristo sandwich.

If you are looking for a sweet snack they have numerous home made dessert pies, brownies, cookies and they also have ice cream and gelato.
