Went here twice during my stay in Provincetown, MA. Had seafood (shrimp, scallops, lobster) cooked two different ways. Both were excellent! The waitstaff was most congenial and helpful. I would highly recommend it. In addition, if you parked in the public parking area, it's on the way!!

After visiting Cape Cod for years, I had my first poor meal. It was a simple burger, but the bread was like sawdust. The service was good, the burger itself was fine, but.... Very disappointing.

We had eaten here a couple times 3 or 4 years and enjoyed the food. We decided to go back thinking it would be uncrowded on this August night of Carnival Week. We arrived early and sat outside. The food was good but the service was very slow. There is a difference between relaxed and tedious. The time between courses... More

Having seen this restaurant very busy on a few nights, I thought the food must be delicious. After reviewing the menu with a friend, we thought this would be a great dining experience. After we were seated, we were served mediocre "garlic bread", which was nether warm nor toasty as one would expect. I asked the waiter to please describe... More

Across from the A-House is this great restaurant. We were nicely greeted and water and a basket of garlic cheese bread placed on our table. We started our dinner with the Blackened Shrimp nicely prepared and great flavor. Our Ceasar and house salad were chilled, fresh and crisp. Entrees consisted of the Lazy Mans Lobster Pie and Seafood Scampi they... More

We stopped in here because a girl told us the special was lobster and we had been looking for a good lobster deal. We sat outside and loved everything about the place. Relaxed atmosphere. The lobster was a great deal for Provincetown and it was excellent. We will definitely try it again this year.

The 2lb lobster here is the ticket. This is the absolute cheapest place in town to get a lobster of this size at this price. Also known for great steak tips and other fresh seafood.

Dinner was very good... although the only thing we scratched our heads about was that the shrimp cocktail was served with frozen shrimp. Frozen shrimp? The entrees were cooked to almost perfection though. The waitress, Carol, was a hoot. I'd come back, but maybe not order the shrimp cocktail next time.
