I always have a great experience at the Land Ho. I go back because of the atmosphere. It's busy and happy. It's been my family's favorite go-to place for years. The food may not be haute cuisine, but you can count on your meal to be consistent and good. The place buzzes in the summer with locals and tourists and... More

Friday night before Christmas , we arrived and found the place very busy waited only a few minutes before a table was found. A excellent menu with a wide verity of local produce , 4 different meals all excellent large portions but we are always amazed at the size price ratio compared with the UK.

Fun, casual, consistently good dining. Fun bar. Great seasoned staff! We are locals. We love the 'Ho and visit it often. It is not the place to go for a quiet, romantic meal - it is a lively place that is open for lunch & dinner.

Always feel like a welcome guest when we walk in. Seating is tight but it adds to the family-seating type of environment, it encourages cross-table conversations. The interior decor with the local signage is an easy way to kill the short time between ordering and food/drink delivery. Menu is variable enough to have something for everyone, but not a novella...

Good food in a casual atmosphere. Love the stuffed clam and fish and chips. Trivia night on Tuesday is lots of fun.

Lovely spot, great food and a good atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this place for food or just for a stop off at the bar.

Really nice pub type atmosphere. Late in the year so we got a seat right away but imagine a couple weeks back it was probably really jammed up. Came here with the full intention of getting fried seafood and I was not disappointed - great fish and chips - but there were a lot of other non seafood selections. I... More

Noisy, crowded, lively bar, great food no reservations, wait time only ten minutes. Enough time to take in the ambiance and enjoy a perfectly poured Guinness at the bar. Dining with friends who live in Cape Cod this was a great introduction to life of the locals. Loud conversations drowned out the music playing. We had a lively conversation and... More

This is a local institution that would probably survive a major sea level rise. Translation-- it can really do nothing wrong enough to harm itself. Its main claim is that of a cozy, working man watering hole that feels like it's straight out of Ireland. I'm a local and have never been that in love with the place, although out-of-town... More

Googled restaurant on a day trip. Menu has lots of options. We were greeted as we walked in the and the waitress came right over. Menu and specials were pub food with their own twist. Even though the place was busy, it didn't take long for food to arrive.
