We where lucky enough to get a table by the window to enjoy the harbor view. We decided not to do the buffet and opted to order from the menu. We all had a nice meal and the waitstaff was attentive.

The views are lovely. The food can be spotty - we have had good and not so good meals here. Similarly service can run hot or cold. During our last experience here we ordered an item off of the "early bird" menu. The meal was brought to the table then quickly removed with the waiter indicating " a mistake had... More

This restaurant has the best clam roll in the world. And as one sits to eat it, there is a global view of the magnificent sea. Salads are great as well as the roll-up turkey sandwiches. My husband and I live in VA. and there is no place like Cape Cod to get good seafood. We use to live on... More

We ate here upon arriving to P Town. The service was nice and the view of the water was ok but food was just there. Nothing special about any of it. No draft beers as well just bottles.

This is where the locals go, fair prices, good food, and off season is a great time to sit and relax watching the water within just... More

Fanizzi's by the Sea has been doing their Friday night fish fry for years. The price of it has only gone up only a little bit over these many years. We enjoy coming here throughout the year and since it has been a popular item, many other restaurants in town have attempted to do a fish fry to compete. Although... More

I have eaten at Fanizzi's several times when visiting my daughter in P-town. Never disappointed! Today we ordered the duxelle mushrooms for an appetizer and they were incredible! The lobster bisque was delicious and my cod cakes entree was great! I never hesitate returning to Fanizzi's each time I'm in Provincetown.

This restaurant is right on the water, which is very nice. The atmosphere is pleasant. I thought the food was okay, nothing special. I did think that prices were a bit high. All in all though, a nice place to have a meal with friends and family
