This restaurant may not be stellar - the decor is early 1970's kitsch, the service slow, the menu offerings fairly pedestrian - but! It will always have a warm spot in my heart because it was a warm spot, literally, when we were in Provincetown this winter, starving, and every restaurant we passed... read more

I ate two dinners here the past two evenings and enjoyed them very much. This place isn't fancy so if you want gourmet you need to eat elsewhere. I was here in late March so before the summer tourist crush and there were mostly locals here, at the bar and playing pool. I had stuffed shrimp with medley veggies the... More

GB's looked nice from the outside and we decided to stop in on a whim for dinner. We ordered oysters on the shell figuring they would be fresh... They were at least room temperature and frankly we were lucky we did not get sick from the couple we tried. The bathrooms were simply horrific and my wife's pasta seemed like... More

We tried to get dinner at the Lobster Pot, but there was a one (1) hour wait, so we thought we would give this place a try. The staff was friendly enough, but we were not impressed by the food. Won't eat there again

This is not one of the restaurants that I would frequent, it is more for tourists then locals. Just follow where the Provincetownians eat.

We stopped in here to get out of the rain one late morning. My wife, who is allergic to eggs, asked whether she could have a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich instead. "No, that's on the children's menu." That's fine, we don't mind paying an up charge for an adult serving. "No, I'm sorry, they won't do it." Silence. "You... More

They have a nice karaoke bar area! But an even better downstairs dance floor playing everything from Reggie to rap and other good dance music.

The place was just OK. We were there late morning for a bloody. The waitress was just doing her job, nothing more. Prices were high even for Ptown

Hadn't read any of the reviews, but stopped in for lunch, as the patio is dog friendly. Immediately after sitting down they brought a bowl of water for the dog - nice touch. The menu is typical fast food/family dining with selections to suit most tastes. Service was good and all meals were delivered quickly. Everybody enjoyed their meal. I... More

Dined on the patio, next to the propane heater per choice as it was a bit chilly . Great meal, second entree was half price. Sole with avocado and bananna was one of the specials. I was hesitant but not dissapointed. Loved it. My companion enjoyed a fisherman's platter which was delicious as well. Service was great. No complaints ,... More
