Falmouth on Monday Evening, August 11th

I've found some great recommends and even more to stay away from on the Cape thanks to recent posts. However, can anyone give me some solid casual options in the vicinity of Falmouth for Monday evening? We will be pooped from a 5 1/2 hour plane trip into Boston followed by the drive to the cape. We will be staying at Cape Wind for 4 nights and will be more adventurous the next day but need to get acclimated first! Our likes are endless...lobster roll, fried clams, burgers, pizza. Thanks in advance!

  1. No suggestions? I'm getting the idea that Falmouth is a Chow desert...Did I not ask the right way?

    1. Here's a great spot in W. Falmouth - Chapoquoit Grill. Excellent pizza

      1. We tend to eat in or picnic when on Cape b/c of so many tourist traps, w/overpriced, mediocre food. But I've long loved the Cambodian restaurant Stir Crazy on Route 28 in Bourne/Buzzards Bay on way to Falmouth. But not open on Mondays. I also have enjoyed burgers at Betsy's Diner on Main St, but not recently.

          1. Heather and Siena both in Mashpee for fine dining. You can check their web sites for the menus. Heather is very atmospheric and you can sit in the bar area/tables if you want a more casual meal.

              We are getting lousy internet reception so I will report back when we get home in a week. Thanks for all of your suggestions!!!

                I actually just got back yesterday from a week long trip.
                Where we ate:
                Falmouth Raw Bar. New restaurant on Falmouth Harbor, right near where my dad keeps his boat. So we got takeout and ate it on the boat. It was very good. We got a large lobster roll (HUGE, my mom and I split it. It was ok. Didn't have a lot of flavor), corn on the cob, chowder (very good!), Dad got a steamed kielbasa that he really enjoyed. All in all very good. Busy and LOUD if you want to eat in, but it has a nice deck overlooking the harbor.

                Asia - new restaurant in Mashpee Commons. Service wasn't great at lunch but it was ok. The food was very good though. We had Avocado Maki, Idaho Maki, a shrimp tempura maki with spicy sauce (can't remember the name) and veggie lo mein. It was all very good. Especially the Idaho Maki, which is tempura sweet potato, so yummy!

                Sabatino's - an Italian Restaurant near Falmouth Harbor. We got takeout again and ate on the boat.
                I had the Gnochi and it was delicious. Light, flavorful dumplings with a fresh tasting tomato sauce with Mozz. on top. Really good.
                Mom had the lasagne and ate every bite. Dad had spaghetti and meatballs with extra hot sausage and also pigged out. My DDs had spaghettie with butter and cheese and enjoyed it. We had so much food we couldn't even eat our salads. We had much leftover to bring home to my brother. REally very good. They just bought the old Grasmere pub near the Coonemessett Inn and I'm looking forward to trying that one as well. I hear the location near Falmouth Harbor is going to be torn down and rebuilt. Can't wait to see what it looks like when it's finished.

                Sweet Tomatoes - Pizza place in East Falmouth. They have the best Neopolitan Pizza I've ever had. We had a large Feta with black olives and it was so good!

                Paul's Pizza is my favorite pizza anywhere! If you go try the shrimp pizza and the apple pizza for dessert! OMG!

                  Re Asia in Mashpee Commons: it is an interesting restaurant with its mix of food from different countries (China, Japan, Thailand, Korea). They did a great job renovating the space a year ago. We dined at Asia in Mashpee Commons tonight. It was a terrific meal. Got started with dumpling soup. Next came agedashi tofu, 2" square, deep fried to a golden brown, sitting in a perfect broth of dashi, mirin and shoyu, topped with deep fired negi, piping hot. Our next dish was from the sushi bar, maguro, pickled gobo, and avocado rolled in sheets of cucumber and served with a ponzu sauce on the side. We finished up with Chinese ginger chicken and green beans. Couldn't have been better.
