VERY POOR SERVICE. Help needs to learn how to handle each part of the mean. Drinks took over 20 minutes to come. Appetizers were ordered but never came. An when the dinner person came to take out order, we just walked out.

Right in the heart of Commercial St. We had eaten there serveral times. We go as a family of 5. I found the menu typical with it's offering but that's what my family wants. Order lobster. I've always had a good lobster roll. The hostess and servers are very pleasant. The only thing I can say and it's not a... More

Traveling into Provincetown from Hyannis was an enjoyable sight-seeing journey. Arriving near 9 a.m. we decided our first course of action should be to have a great breakfastg. Being totally unfamiliar with the area, we parked the car and walked the main street --and came upon the Governor Bradford Restaurant--with seating both inside and outside. Entering the restaurant, we were... More

My Family and I decided to eat here after reading the menu selection, which sounded interesting. I ordered the Curried Chicken, which was awful. It was overdone and it looked like it was parboiled. The presentation was terrible and there was no skin at all on the chicken. While that may not be healthy, that's where the flavor is, because... More

Governor Bradford Restaurant, but I will be rating only the bar part as that is where I spent my time. I was able to eat at the bar itself, watch TV, play KENO, talk to a wonderful waitress during the day, and have some great drinks. As prices go for a tourist area they are equal to Boston regular prices,... More

This place looked ok after the trolley ride, however our beer had cigarette ashes in it. The lobster roll we ordered mad my wife sick, and the server was rude about splitting the check. Pleanty of other places to go in a otherwise cool town !!

I have visiting Provincetown for more than 30 years and always passed it by. One of my local friends told me that is possibly the only spot in town to get a good breakfast for a reasonable amount of money. With omelets priced at 7.99 we decide to give it a try this morning. First the stories of it being... More

We wanted to go to the squealing pig but there were just too many people in there. We opted for Bradford because of the empty area outside for dining.... Unfortunately now we see why it was so empty. Besides the obnoxious guy working the door, our waitress was pretty impatient. The drinks were weak, the seafood platter was adequate for... More

The breakfast was really good and so was the service. The seating overlooking Commercial Street made for great people watching, which is of course always especially fun in Provincetown.
