My lobster was excellent, but my husband was not fond of the scallops he ordered. The place has plenty of atmosphere and a drag queen for a DJ. I ran into her in the ladies' room! We left before the music started, but it looked like a favorite local hangout.

Bartender stealing from restaurant cash register. Rude staff. Horable food. Manager would not believe bartender was stealing. Deserves to be robbed.

My wife, son and I had lunch here after a morning of sight seeing. Seemed like a historic place but was rather run of the mill. The menu had a lot of selection and our food was good. The place was accommodating for an 18 month old, which is always appreciated. Probably would try a different place when we are... More

It looked like a great place to eat. Possibly historic. The food was okay, a bit pricey for what it was. Service was okay, not great. Was expecting to have dessert and was brought the check without being offered.

Nothing out of the ordinary here, other than they have live entertainment. A bit on the dark site. Decent food, but if you only have a few meals in Provincetown, you can do better.

This place really looked good, so we figured we'd try it. Terrible! I ordered a ribeye which they are supposedly known for. I ordered it medium-rare and it was almost crispy. Service sucked, we had to ask our waiter three times for our check. Please don't go here!

This pet friendly restaurant was a hit with us and not such a hit on the wallet. Drinks, salad, wine with the meal, and 1/2 off second entree with tip $90. Yummy food, fantastic staff, happy dog, great location! We'll go back.

Stopped in on a rainy, windy day in Provincetown. The service was very friendly, and the food was excellent. I had the lobster wontons with a spicy dipping sauce which was more than enough for a meal. So good. My daughter had a prime rib French dip style sandwich that was also excellent. Really cute seaside décor with lots of... More

Do not eat here!!!! Chowder didn't even taste like chowder. Steamed clams under cooked and not fresh. My husbands mussels marinara awful. He got sick 10 minutes after eating. Waitress sweet and sympathetic but manager did nothing. Was told the owner is a millionaire and could care less about the quality of food, he makes a killing off the tourist.... More
