Flying Bridge is a particularly appropriate name for this longtime Falmouth favorite because, like the flying bridge on a boat, the dining room offers a wide open view of the harbor and ocean beyond. Falmouth's Inner Harbor is one of the busiest on the Cape, so there's plenty of action to watch from a seat on the outside deck. In addition to its large dining room, there are also several intimate cocktail lounges. Talented local bands rock the house several nights a week during summer months.
The readers of the Vineyard Gazette have named the Newes the best bar and pub on the island. The nautical theme brings you back to the 1700s and the charm of seafaring days. The room is dark and the main lighting source is the lanterns and the fireplace. The menu includes typical pub fare: tasty burgers, French fries, chicken wings and other appetizers abound. A friendly staff is willing to help you decide from the long list of microbrews and wine offerings on offer. This place gets quite crowded and children are welcome. Located next to the beautiful Kelley House.
An island institution, famous for its harbor views from its glassed-in dining room and upstairs decks, and for its seafood chili, a spicy assortment of shellfish in a thick stock.

There is an upstairs pub with a lighter menu and nightly entertainment. The restaurant, located next to Memorial Wharf, remains open through mid-October and is a popular island establishment.
