Good for the budget conscience

Excellent chowder and great views of the bay. If your looking for some good quick eats that won't kill your wallet this is the place. The sandwiches and salads are great.

We were at Betsy's several times during our stay at the cape. The service was always fantastic, the food was delicious and we enjoyed it every time. Especially the child-friendly and heartwarming service was awesome for our 1 year old son. Thank you! Lots of love from Theo from Germany!

Friendly staff with good food for lunch or dinner. Good views too! There's even a bar upfront for those who only want to drink.

The service from both Steven and Tyler was phenomenal as expected. I'm never disappointed. Dinner service last night by Peter was excellent as well. The food was delicious at both meals. I highly recommend eating here. 😃

Although one of the few choices available for dinner on a Monday night in November, Bayside Betsy's did not disappoint. My lobster roll was stuffed with delicious lobster meat, the service was friendly and attentive, and the cocktails were strong. A great send-off for our last night in P'town.

No trip to P'town is complete without at stop at Betsy's even if it is only for a drink. The food is fantastic (try the eggs benedict with lobster). We sat at the bar for a while and enjoyed a couple martinis. It's a great bar to people watch.

We visited Provincetown just after the season closed, so it was difficult to find an open restaurant. We went in here and got a booth overlooking the beach, which was very nice. The server was friendly, but not very attentive in filing up our ice tea glasses nor asking how we liked our food. We ordered hamburgers and mine had... More

Chanel was fabulous in every aspect of our visit, he greeted us at the door with a hug and made us several drinks. He recommended food and places to finish off our night! Management should give him a raise, for making this establishment the place to be! Next time in PTown we will come back to see Chanel!

went here for a gathering, many our group complained on the food being bland and tasteless, for me it was a see through version of off black coca cola that did it, we had meals tickets for a further meal here pr-paid but opted to go elswhere and pay rather than eat that crap again.
