Pretty Average

The lobster alfredo was pretty good, but the Yankee pot roast was pretty bad. The service for us was okay, but the waitress forgot to put the order in for the table next to us. We should have read the reviews first. It is not a place we would go back to.

Went to Ptown with my husband and our dog to walk around on Halloween. We needed to find a pet-friendly restaurant, and decided to eat at the Governor Bradford. The Bradford has an outdoor patio area that allows pets. Waitstaff was great. We split kale soup, which was very good. We both had cheeseburgers and fries, which were delicious. This... More

actually the staff was good, our waiter and hostess were ok. the rub was the food . When on the cape you would expect to order lobster. well we did and it was lousy. They served it with a plastic cup of oil. supposedly drawn butter. As a chef, and even if your not a culinary wiz I would think... More

While waiting for a seat across the street at the Lobster Pot I checked out the menu of Governor Bradford Restaurant while talking outside with the hostess. I returned my buzzer to the Lobster Pot and had dinner here. Simple furnishing, friendly staff and good deal on the food. Half a roasted chicken, potatoes, asparagus a salad and rolls for... More

After a fabulous whale watch ride and walking through town, we decided to eat at General Bradford's. It was getting chilly and the menu offered good choices for the weather. The service was good and so was the food. I enjoyed the roasted chicken and my husband and daughter got the chicken parmesan which include rolls and salad. We didn't... More

This was our second visit to the Governor Bradford Restaurant and it was very good. We sat in the inside dining area and had drinks. Our waitress was very friendly. The lobster roll was packed with lobster and delicious. My husband really enjoyed his scallop roll. He thought the scallops were the best he had during the entire trip.

We just happened in this place whenever we headed was closed. I can't complain, as it wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. It was, truly, average. So many great places in Provincetown, pick some place else. Wait staff was helpful and attentive.

Lunch on our first day of our vacation, we were greeted by a wonderful hostess who took us to an umbrella table and made sure we were comfortable our waitress was fun and efficient. The food was served hot, delicious and as ordered. The outdoor patio was clean and in the center of the shopping strip.
