Wait time is long even for summer in Ptown but food is worth it!! We have eaten there twice and both times the burgers were outstanding. Service is a little slow due to busy summer time but staff are friendly and courteous

These folks know what and hot to cook and they make it their business. We aren't sure if you can get a better meal anywhere in Provincetown. The turkey burger is no ordinary turkey burger. The cauliflower is a must. The kale salad will surprise you. A variety of different dishes done so well.

The owners also own the magnificent Blackfish in Truro. They have combined the menus for the 2-3 month tenure of this winter popup. It works. Burgers, duck wings, meat loaf etc. All good!!

Nice place to eat if in the mood for a burger. I recommend the Turkey burger a sits the best one I've ever had. Shoe string onion rings or fries are great. Have been there numerous times over the summer. Nice to sit on upper porch to watch the view of commercial st.

The tile of my review pretty much sums of my view of Local 186. The burgers combinations are endless and the one that I had was amazing. The friendly staff made this quick meal at the bar an enjoyable one. I will most definitely be back.

Ordered a old fashioned burger. Cheese and bacon. 14.00 I changed my cheese to American. Sneaky waitress made it a byo burger 16.00+2.00 for cheese and 3.00 for bacon.....friend orders a gluten free bun, came out frozen bun and mold all over it. Now if a chef puts a moldy bun on a burger, imagine what that kitchen looks like.... More

The food is outstanding. The wait was a little long, but it was a busy weekend. A little pricey too, but you get what you pay for - we definitely thought it was worth it!

Had a very tasty Bacon cheeseburger that came with delicious fries. Ate in the pleasant dining room and had very good service.

Our B&B hosts recommended Local 186. The service was very good, as were the cocktails. The burgers were also very tasty. Shame they were out of the lamb burger as I would've opted to try that one.

Thank Hyly20
