Falmouth MA for a Couple of Days?

Will be in Falmouth later this week and am looking for chowish places, not pretentious, for lunch and dinner. Fried clams, lobster rolls, seafood and sandwiches would hit the spot for us.

  1. Yes I know, but it did not reveal much. That's why I'm asking now.

    1. I haven't seen much here on Falmouth.
      Some of my favs:
      Waiquoit grill, w. falmouth
      McMenamies for fried
      lobster rolls from pocasset- the name escapes me
      British beer for pub
      Landfall for view
      Capn Kidd

      1. Chart Room too is always *jammed*. Moonakiss has good breakfasts. Especially their pancakes and homemade corned beef has. Also, while it's in Mashpee -- close to Falmouth, the Raw Bar over in near the Pomponesset Inn(sp?) has **massive** lobster rolls! Those things are beautiful! (Not sure if they're open this time of year though...)

        1. I enjoyed the Roo Bar the last time I was in Falmouth. They served a great Kona coffee crusted pork tenderloin.

          1. I just surveyed Main St. Saw the Roo Bar. Had a pleasant breakfast at Country Fare on Main. Went by the Carolina BBQ. Any info on that?

            1. One of the best places in my opinion is Chappaquoit Grill. Locals call it Chappy Grill and it is in the Sippewisset area just about 5 min from Main Street. The wait can be very long, but call ahead and they will allow you to put your name on the list. Prices are just right and the food and service are consistently excellent.

              1. This thread is a bit old, but right on with what I'm looking for. Anyone have any updates/additions they want to make? Thanks much for any additional info. Cheers!

                  I would be more inclined to take the ferry over to the Vineyard. Get off at Oak Bluffs and there are plenty of places within walking distance. For lunch Sharky's Cantina is fun, casual and makes one of the most incredible paella dishes I have ever tasted. Lookout Tavern is another good casual spot, directly across from the ferry. Go for the freshly prepared sushi or a fried clam role. For dinner, my choice would be Jimmy Seas Pan Pasta with my choice being the lobster fra diavolo.

                    Chappaquoit Grill is still one of the best, great pizzas, salads, and mains, still long waits so call ahead for the list.

                    The Chart Room in Pocasset is great for sunset views, but it is VERY crowded, go off hours or call and beg for a reservation.
