We went here to avoid paying out of the nose in all the other tourist traps. Lots of kids selections for a decent price. Chicken parm was obviously not prepared from scratch but was not bad and got a huge portion. Ditto for spaghetti sauce which I doubt was homemade but again not bad. Enjoyed sitting out on the front... More

We had an early dinner at the Governor Bradford Restaurant before taking the ferry back to Boston. The hostess was very welcoming and had a fun personality. We liked the menu which had quite a variety of fresh seafood and lots of other dishes to choose from. Our waitress, Ola from Russia, was friendly and attentive with a pleasant smile... More

Stopped in while in Provincetown and while the food was just ok the service was absolutely terrible (we waited some 40 minutes) and the the tables were dirty. Add a ridiculous rip off tourist price and you have all the ingredients to ensure you keep away from this bad experience. Always a shame when restraint owners just care about the... More

Stopped in for lunch on a visit to P-Town - won't be back! Hostess was clueless, had no organization, no idea how long the wait was going to be, etc. The food was marginal - service was very slow and the atmosphere is shaky at best. There are a lot of options in P-Town - don't waste your time here!

I am a vegetarian and the ONLY time I slip off of this quest is for Fried Clams - NOT OFTEN. What better place than Cape Cod. Shared a meal of fried clams / french fries / cole slaw with a friend - just the right portion. Clams were sweet and tasty. They were good - not the best, but... More

Title says it all. We spent the month of July on the Cape...in Chatham and visited P-town for the day. We were hoping to have a nice dinner, but instead we ate at this dump. Kids pasta tasted like fish. I'm assuming that they used the same pot without cleaning it...just gross. My wife couldn't even stomach her capris salad...she... More

We were wary as tourists that this was a place just for locals, not so. We had a lovely drink at the bar and then lunch on the terrace. Terrific service and the price was right - will add it to our must go list every year.

The food and service is really good. I enjoy eating late evening while there is entertainment; comedy, live bands, etc.

Our first night in Provincetown, we were strolling through town looking for a place to eat and came upon the Governor Bradford on Commercial Street. There was a heavy-set guy out front trying to get people to come in and eat. We should have known this was a bad sign; but we had a large group, and he said he... More

The service was the worst that I have ever experienced. It took them 30 minutes to take our order and after that the waitress was so rude. The drinks came with no straws and when we asked for them, the waitress had an attitude, throwing the straws in the water and splashing it all over our faces. Finally when we've... More
