The menu here changes often, but they always have a variety of choices. The food was well prepared and the service was excellent. We were seated outside but it started to rain so they brought us inside immediately. We will definitely return.

Smallish restaurant with limited seating. If you're lucky enough to be seated, food was very good. Service seemed a bit on the slow side. As per some previous reviews, also were told they were out of some of their selections by an early lunch.

We’ve been to Provincial many times and the food never disappoints! The food is always interesting, different and I love that they purchase locally when they can. The only negative is that it is very loud to the point it’s hard to hear the people...More

Food was delicious, salmon and steaks cooked to perfection! Service both at bar and table was great. If you haven’t been to downtown Apex, you must go! Cutest little town with shops and restaurants. Highly recommend The Provincial. Will be back.

Everything about the food and service is 5 star. We would come here more often if it weren't for the noise level. Hard to converse on a busy night. But otherwise superb.

Provincial is a great restaurant located in downtown Apex. The salmon and mashed potatoes were delicious. The chicken salad at lunch is also delicious. Quaint atmosphere with great service. Outdoor seating is also available.

Some friends suggested dinner at this restaurant in downtown Apex. It is apparently relatively new so we didn't know what to expect. We had dinner on a Friday night and it was relatively busy. The menu is somewhat limited but they have a good selection...More
