Stopped here for lunch on our annual trip to P-Town. Nothing special, but a nice view of the harbor and good seafood. About what you would expect for P-Town. A bit crowded out on the patio, but overall a nice experience.

On a busy August weekend night when every restaurant was packed, we got seated quickly on the back patio with a water view. The service was great. The food was fine - not outstanding (the salmon special was bland) - but a good meal and a nice atmosphere.

We visited this restaurant on Sunday night, August 21st just before 20:00. As we did not have any reservations, we were grateful that they could accommodate us at the last minute after several places had refused as the town was in peak tourist season. The food and service were both outstanding and we were very impressed by the quality of... More

I wonder if I recieved mediocre service because I was flying solo or if it's because it was a monday at the end of the season. Fried claims were delicious. Fries were not good. I'd recommend a different side. They were extremely greasy shoestring fries.

Nice dining area out on the beach. Good was solid if s bit mixed. The well fleet oysters were dry. The steamer clams are fantastic and a must order. The lobster roll was disappointing and covered up the lobster flavor. A nice grilled cheese for kids.

Had a really nice lunch yesterday with my husband and 2 year old daughter - kids meal was great portion compared to other restaurants. My husband and I wanted a lunch of picky apps - all were very good. What made our experience stellar was the beautiful weather/seat/view on the patio and the company of our server - Bruce! Bruce...

After an afternoon of walking around lovely Provincetown two hungry travelers decide to meander in looking for seafood. We had just passed on a restaurant that we wanted to try, as it was late afternoon and they had closed until dinner. To our surprise this restaurant was still serving off the lunch menu...and since I am not a big eater... More

We stopped for a quick bite to eat. Friend had the dumplings appetizer....eh. Had corn in it, very unusual tasting. I had fried clams and french fries and it was great. Ipswich friend clams were great, shoestring french fries were great. Service was good. May or may not go back. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best ever.

The food was alright, slightly overpriced but that's what you get in touristy area. The service is a genuine put off. The server did not smile at us even once, expressionless. Kept chasing us for ordering drinks (we don't drink, ok?). Horrible. I didn't even bother to take a picture of the restaurant.
