Terrific summer spot but I especially love it in September most of all! Family restaurant with a special, cozy little bar tucked in back that is the best place to have a drink after the families have ended their day!

Very close to our lodging. Food was good but our waitress forgot to put order in. After we watch multple tables that ordered after us recieve there meals, she came over an apologized. With a antzy baby you begin to run out of time.

Please sell the restaurant to someone who doe not buy the cheapest and crappiest supplies and who has some ides how to cook. We tried it three summers ago and then again this year. If anything, the food has gotten worse. The residents of the Heights and even the visitors do not deserve this degree of slop.

Mostly fried, with lobster rolls, etc. Had the fried shrimp, very crunchy. Decent beer selection. Small parking lot, also serves ice cream. Very attentive service. Some indoor seating, mostly just picnic tables.

We had just gotten into town and had seen this place along the way to our hotel. I'm so glad we drove back to try this place. We sat outside, although there are tables inside. Our server was pleasant and attentive. My clam roll was very good. While we were there we saw many people getting take out. The place... More

This place has seen restaurants come and go. However, the present owner has developed a great local following due to good honest food, some with a flair, friendly and timely service, and moderate pricing. Full bar service is available along with a good selection of draft beers.

The first place we ate in Cape Cod based on a recommendation from our hotel. Had to have the lobster roll and thought it was great. Had 5 more that week and none compared to this place. Nice cold beer too.

Falmouth Heights location is just short walk from Falmouth ferry. It was a hot an humid early evening dinner so outdoor seating was prefered.

The selections varied from seafood platters, to fish and chips, chowders and... More

We recently visited the Silver Shore Shanty, the setting was very unique, the menu was great with plenty of choice for everyone in the group and the service was fantastic! It was so good we brought the whole family back the next night! Highly recommend the burger, fish & chips and the ice creams ☺️

The lobster roll was excellent, right amount of mayo, lettuce, on a very fresh roll. The daily special offered crab cakes which were delicious. They have good IPA to wash it down. The place look shanty but the quality of the food we had is gastro level.
