Reminds me of a diner!

We wandered in on our first night in Provincetown and had a wonderfully simple meal! I had chicken croquettes which I had not had since I was a child, just as I had remembered, very tasty. My spouse had eggplant parmesan, which he totally raved about, crisp with good sauce, which is hard to find... read more

Had lunch in here. Lobster tails, fries and slaw. Slaw and fries were good... Lobster a bit rubbery and over cooked. Server was very nice and friendly but the host dude that seated us was rude. Children's food was large portion and fairly tasty. I thought a bit pricey all in given the pretty standard level of food. If you're... More

Very nice people and great, fresh seafood. My father in law was born there over 85 years ago and he used to eat there, so it must be good.

The menu has something for everyone and this place is probably one of the better places in town for families with small children. The food is fairly consistent if a bit dull. There are however two exceptions in all the years I've been coming to town and trying it out. The Chicken Croquettes (make sure and ask for mashed) are... More

One night recently we were in the mood for a no frills dinner. The Mayflower is always the place. Fast and efficient, it was just what we wanted and needed after a hectic day. The menu is varied and the food is good basic cooking. Always reliable as well as convenient.

We had our lobster dinner here and found it very filling and just what we were looking for, We had gone in a little early in the afternoon and there wasn't much of a crowd.

This cafe is located on a quaint street in downtown Provincetown and was one of few open late one evening so we decided to give it a try. We enjoyed it very much. The food was good and the staff and servers were friendly and attentive and the prices are very reasonable.

We passed this restaurant a couple of times without even giving it a glance. Then 1 time we noticed it and figured we would give a try because there were a few people in there. It was very good. Staff and food. My husband and I shared a Lobster Club and each had a bowl of clam chowder. They were... More

Pleasantly surprised by the excellent service and the delicious food. Unpretentious spot that is too easily overlooked for tourists. It's a stop that is well worth it!

Great food at half the price of Ptown restaurants. Always a favorite. Fresh seafood and the lobster dinner can't be beat.
