Been going to P-town every year since 1978 but Govenor Bradfords has gone way down hill! We used to be able to go to GB and chill for a bit and have a couple drinks and play backgammon or chess or checkers. Decided to take my sister for a few days,her husband recently passed away and she hadn't been for... More

Cheap drinks, hilarious locals, and a great Friday night karaoke session! Loved this place the energy and crowd was great the place was divey but affordable bar tenders were great and the drag queen a riot. Had so much fun here! I recommend for anyone visiting P-town for the first time!

Waited forever for drinks, then 25 minutes for soup, then another half hour for food that looked straight out if the Mcdonalds kitchen. Had to be the worst experience of our trip to the Cape. The facade is intriguing, but don't waste valuable time at this terrible restaurant.

My first visit to P-Town and enjoyed everything but this stop. Bouncer very rude like mentioned in other review. Never seen a place that carries the mantle of tolerance and yet has one venue that completely drops it.

My boyfriend and I just wanted a nice time out and the second we walked in to this place we knew something was off. The bouncer was extremely rude as we walked in, and when we sat down at a table, not one person even came over to help us. We decided to sit up at the bar to maybe... More

A small draft beer was $4.75 and I mean a 10 oz. The drinks had miserable pours too. I can handle dirty place and cheap drinks. Can't take dirty and rip off drinks.

Stopped here for lunch while it was raining outside. Service was prompt and accurate. They offer Keno which was nice to pass the time by. Food was pretty good, nothing over the top special but it hit the spot! We would return!
