When the salad dressing arrived my husband found a foreign object in the blue cheese dressing A customer at the table next to us said he had the same problem last time he was there !. A manager was summoned and said no one... More

We had spent the day on the beach and were trying to figure out a casual place to eat. Being May,we figured it was safe to drive, we wound up here unexpectedly. It fit the bill perfectly. We both decided on the same two dishes, so we ordered them to split, Baked Stuffed Shrimp and Chicken ala Whitman. We enjoyed... More

My girlfriend and I stopped in as the last place we ate leaving that cape after another summer. We both had steaks, and tried the seafood appetizer plate. Overall I think this is the best value for food on the outer cape. We got a ton of food for less then most of the neighboring restaurants.

While seal watching on the beaches of Truro - a nice lady recommended this restaurant to us because we were commenting on how commercial and over rated the restaurants where in Providencetown. Well we found a gem - good food, great choices, great atmosphere. Next time we are staying ONLY in Truro - and naturally eating at the Whitman House.

We eat at the Whitman at least a few times a month. The food and the value are outstanding. The service is friendly and family like. We just moved to town and this was the first place we went and we appreciate their blackened fish choices and their ample portions.

My first trip to the Whitman house will likely be my last. The building is lovely and offers both a dining room and tavern. We decided on the tavern which consists of a small bar area and a nice porch. We soon learned that the complementary popcorn in the bar area was not for folks on the porch, even though... More

When we pulled up we were concerned about the 2 tour buses in the parking lot but upon entry there was room in a very nice setting and we were treated very well, servers were pleasant, efficient and helpful. A whipped cheese with bread sticks started it off - we had the appetizer sampler which contained a selection of baked... More

I always bring my guests to the Whitman House. It is a family business and treats you as family when there. They have a great early bird special with five choices, from cheese and crackers to coffee and dessert. Their regular menu gives many great choices also. The staff is usually very professional, although the last visit, I must say... More

We first visited the Whitman House over fifteen years ago, but it had been four years since our last visit to the Cape. After reading other reviews we were somewhat cautious about a visit this year but we decided to give it a try. A meal at the Whitman House is our one special dinner on vacation and we were... More

I have been going to the Whitman House every year since I was literally a baby. I have many fond memories of ending family vacations there with a great, high quality dinner. At the beginning of the summer my parents had eaten there and told us they had a bad experience there and would never go back. I was hoping... More
