The patio outside was not so inviting with those plastic chairs and weird lighting. Since our other options had a long wait and we could seat here right away, we decided to go for it. What can I say, the bathrooms smelled awfully and you can imagine what that means. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable which turned around... More

On an very warm day in October, 2014, we enjoyed lunch at this restaurant outdoors eating delicious lobster salad rolls and lobster salad plate. Service was very good and prices very reasonable.

The food is just okay at Buala's but the opportunity to have a casual meal while experiencing the parade of people on Commercial Street is worth it! My go-to dish is Bubala's Famous Fish Soup which is spicy, flavorful and full of fish. The parking lot is a big plus.

There are several good restaurants in Provincetown , but few with good parking! We had a very nice lunch at Bubala's. The waterfront view is terrific and the service was excellent. The Bubula's parking lot played a major role in our decision to try it. We are glad we did.

Busy, busy, busy... lots of customers filling most tables on Columbus Day long weekend. Our party of three were seated fairly quickly. I had a partial view of the water, but didn't want to wait for another table. Staff were quick to attend the table for drink orders. Menu is extensive from burgers to more interesting fare. I decided to... More

I loved the food (had the burger) but the waitress took our order and we never saw her again. We would have spent so much money on alcohol but alas, she never came back to ask us to refill our drinks. Look, I get it, you're busy; however, look after your tables. I would go back for the food, yes;... More

We only chose this place because it was "there", we were hungry and we didn't know the area yet. Food was ok, not bad really. But it's just an average patio with plastic tables and chairs. If it wasn't for its location and people watching factor, I doubt very much they would be busy. We got there at 4:15 and... More

We sat outside which was a great place to people watch. The service was good and the food was pretty average, nothing to rave about. I did not drink however my friends enjoyed their cocktails.

Came here on a bustling Sunday afternoon. We sat at the bar to watch the Patriots game. Good bartenders, fun laud back atmosphere. Was slightly underwhelmed by my fried clams tho, tasted a bit bland or something but good fries. I only had beer on this visit but some of the drinks that were being whipped up looked very tasty.

How could you resist going into a place called Bubala's? A friend and I went to Provincetown on a day trip and walked up and down Commercial Street trying to decide where to eat. This place just jumped out at us. The food was terrific (a chicken wrap and some of the best fries I've had in ages). The service... More
