The Finest Restaurants in Falmouth
The Glass Onion: One of our favorite fine dining dinner spots. A husband and wife team, Josh and Tally, run the restaurant, and it shows in the loving care they put into the food and atmosphere. The Glass Onion is located within easy walking distance from the inn, and accepts reservations for parties of 6 or more. Cape Cod casual attire is recommended – button shirts (including Polos) and khakis or slacks for the gentlemen, and the same, or dresses for women.
CSalt Wine Bar & Grille: Another husband and wife team, Jonathan and Jill own CSalt. It’s our other very favorite restaurant to recommend. It’s is a three minute drive up through Famouth Village, Cape Cod casual attire recommended, reservations accepted.
LaCucina Sul Mare: a next top favorite dinner spots that also offers lunch. 3-4 minute walk from the Inn heading East down Falmouth Village’s quaint Main Street.

During the nice weather months Anejo has high top outdoor dining and the front of the restaurant which faces Main Street and the outdoor dining area has full glass sliding doors that they open for all to enjoy the warmer weather.
Quarterdeck Restaurant: open for lunch and dinner, and 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.
Simply Divine: has outstanding Pizza as well as panninnis, 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. The pizza range from your traditional Margherita Pizza to such interesting blends as sweet potato and bacon as well as a very popular fig and proscuitto pizza.
Liam Maguire’s Irish Pub: Another fun restaurant just a short walk from the Inn which is well known for the musical entertainment that they sponsor including co-owner Liam himself. 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). The Pub also is home to a popular trivia night and other special events such as paint night.
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. They serve breakfast and lunch (but since we’ll fill you up on breakfast at the Inn, we recommend The Pickle Jar for lunch).

Maison Villatte: Another lunch recommendation, 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.
Dining in nearby Woods Hole
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, here are are few favorites:
Landfall Restaurant: another area 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 wharf and a waterfront scene. The window came from a prominent mansion of Penzance Point.
Quicks Hole Tavern: The newest restaurant jewel in Woods Hole, built 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, drinks 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.
