While I cannot comment on the food at this venue, it's Drag Queen Karaoke gives it a unique edge! We had a lot of fun singing the night away and the hostess is amazing!

we sat in this bar while waiting for a table at the lobster pot. We sat right in the front window and discovered the best people watching in Provincetown. And let's be honest Provincetown has GREAT people watching. We had so much fun that we decided to delay our dinner so we could have another drink This isn't a fancy... More

With surly service and overpriced drinks I ask why is this place still Open. Warm oysters on the half shell. Filthy bathrooms. Why don't the owners have any passion for this place.

We stopped in here because there was karaoke happening and wanted to see people make fools of themselves. No issues with security. Quick service at bar but yes drinks are overpriced. Karaoke didn't seemed to be mixed properly with the loudest volume I have ever heard for it and singers much louder than music. One drink and we headed elsewhere.... More

If you are looking for a fun place to let loose and laugh with friends on your visit to Ptown Governor Bradford is a must! Karaoke and very reasonably priced drinks make Governor Bradford a fantastic spot for bachelorette/bachelor parties! My group of ladies had a blast! We would absolutely recommend Governor Bradford to anyone visiting Ptown!

You can easily walk by this place. Not a tourist place. But if you want to have a few beers and a good burger as well as see the true culture of Ptown, this is the spot to be.

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.
