A "must go to" when in PTown.

A long-standing local favorite, this is a place you must go to when visiting PTown.....the food is absolutely excellent, but the seafood exemplifies Cape Cod, for sure......be sure to try the Chowdah!!!

There's always long lines to get into this restaurant. The food is very good, but no really that much different than many other places on the cape.

Lobster at its best, Portuguese Kale soup and Award-winning Clam Chowder, plus the greatest Bloody Mary you'll find in Provincetown! If you prefer something not from the sea, try the Veal Ossobucco--it is FABULOUS! If you have room, their Creme Broulle can't be beat, All that and great wait staff with good knowledge of the menu. GO! You'll be glad... More

I absolutely loved this restaurant! They had the most amazing clam chowder I've ever had. In fact, I had to go back twice before I left just so I could have more. The drinks are good, too!

As recommended in other reviews, I ate the lobster, and I faced the beach. Wow, wow, wow! Now, I live in a coastal resort town, and I eat seafood all the time. But this was just fantastic! Maybe it was the cold weather - maybe it was the hot buttered lobster - maybe it was being on vacation. Whatever it... More

We come every year. The staff is absolutely amazing and the food is fresh and delicious. We love making this our first dinner stop when we spend a week in the Cape each summer and usually end up coming back a few times because we are craving more!!

Last night on our vacation and we followed our tradition with a night t the lobster pot. Our waitress was the fun Julie N -- and she was very nice and on top of things without hovering. Apps included little neck clams -- sweet and perfect! Their award winning chowder -- a family fav 😀. And a house salad with... More

I have said that we visited this restaurant only yesterday but, in fact, our visit was in September, 2002, so, I'm sorry but I told a little fib. So, why I am writing this is that our visit was so memorable, but there were no review on line facilities in those far distant days. We were holidaying in New England,... More
