I asked the waiter what his favorite meal was, he recommended the blackened scallops. I would not have chosen, but did and it was GREAT. Not overwhelmingly spiced as blackened might imply. I was glad I asked.

If you are looking for a place to sit, have a tasty basic meal --- hamburger / sandwich --- at a reasonable price, this is the place. It is fixed up very cute inside --- a former home, but very comfortable. We went for lunch --- the windows facing the water have nice views!

I'll be completely honest---only come here for the clam chowder and lobster bisque. Hands down, THE BEST I have EVER had. I've tried chowders and bisques from all over and nothing compares to Bayside Betsy's. The chowder is cooked with bacon and is overflowing with clams. The lobster bisque is so smooth and creamy but has HUGE chunks of lobster... More

A nice experience. A clean establishment with fine service. Dinner was OK. I chose swordfish. My son had a burger. The food was nicely presented, but the taste was really just standard and not spectacular.

A friend of ours referred us to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. My partner had a salmon salad which he rated excellent. I had the lobster roll, which was very good. Our server Chuck was very cordial and attentive. We would definitely go back. Thanks for the great experience!

This place was great. The food was delicious and reasonably priced (for a waterfront restaurant in Provincetown). Dinners even came with nice salads. Nice atmosphere (went with my husband and daughter). Every seat in the dining room had a nice waterfront view. The thing that really set this place apart was the service. Our waiter was excellent which is something... More

We went here Tuesday evening, August 6th, for dinner with family and friends on a spur of the moment decision. To our surprise, we received and excellent table in the center by the window overlooking the bay at sunset even though we did not have any reservation and the restaurant was busy. Also, to our surprise, we received very prompt... More

We asked our foodie friends where to grab lunch while visiting PTown. Without hesitation, they recommended Bayside Betsy's. And now I can also recommend this absolute gem of a restaurant! Excellent choice for lunch and everyone enjoyed their meals. We all substituted regular fries for their eggplant fries and they are AMAZING. This lobster roll was by far one of... More

Not sure if they were short handed or if it's the normal state of affairs at this attractive water view restaurant, but we had some of the most lackluster service that I've experienced in a good restaurant in some time. We were seated promptly, but it was a very long wait until our drink order was taken, a long wait... More

My husband and I were looking for a cool air conditioned cafe for cocktails and lunch, and we knew nothing of Betsy's...the waiter was awesome, the cocktails yummy (I had a frozen mudslide, and he had a rum punch), and the food was perfectly prepared and plated. I had a hummus plate that included 2 large scoops of homemade hummus,... More
