Very good food

We had after hours drinks and snacks here. My husband's thai salad was Ah-Maze_ing!!!! Not at all sweet, perfect notes of traditional Thai flavor. My calamari was OK. It was cooked well but not at all imaginative, I'd choose something else next time. We had a side of beets too. They were... read more

This is one place in Provincetown I would not recommend. Service is shockingly slow and is very dependent upon the mood of the waiting staff. Food is over priced and although portions are big you will never finish it because of either the grease or the lack of flavour.

The food here was excellent. We both ordered the scallops, which were served with fettucini and a marsala sauce. The portions were huge (6 scallops on a huge bed of pasta) but delicious. They have a nice big patio out on commercial street. Our server was really friendly and efficient, would definitely go back while in Ptown again.

We had a pleasant lunch there. The food and service was good. Can't complain. It's situated on the bay so if your at the back then there's a great view of the sea.

We were seated quickly, however it took some time to get our food. Never received the bread that the waitress told us she was bringing. Our meals were so large we had to take 1/2 of it home with us.

Loved the patio seating on a nice sunny day. The help was friendly and prompt with service. Food was excellent, from burgers to fajitas to bagels with lox. Would definitely go there again.

The food is VERY tasty. The soups were my favorite. The staff is friendly and attentive. The out door dining has the best seating.
