We stopped here for some drinks with a few friends. It was dead quiet, which was understandable, since it was off season, a Monday afternoon and during a bad snow storm in February! However, if you're going to serve alcohol, shouldn't you also have some food to offer the happy drinkers? We got hungry after awhile and was told that... More

First I have to admit, that we didn't like Provincetown at all. Hopelessly overestimated, there are better places on Cape Cod. And this restaurant was only average, too. Food was good, nothing special, but good. Our server, Tracy, was very friendly and fast. But we watched other people leaving because no one came to them and the place wasn't crowded... More

Went here several years ago for brunch and will never return for food. Horrible service, bad food. Maybe fun for a night out if you like dive bars. I think people often stop here since there's typically no line for breakfast... that's what we did. Don't do it!

It was the only pub which was open during the thanksgiving holiday in Provincetown. That's a thing to celebrate! Good food, good location and environment for a reasonable price.

Some food is better when it is fresh. the is why I prefer to eat meat when I am near places with good beef source. But when it comes to fish or seafood, I prefer to eat close to the shore. Recently, I had the chance to eat lobster on a visit to Cape Cod, MA. My friends and I... More

Our grouped stopped n the Governor Bradford for lunch as the Lobster Pot was full. It was a great restaurant for lunch. The lobster rolls were the best we had had on the Cape.

As a frequent visitor I was appalled at the rude lady behind the bar. She clearly was only interested in her "locals". NOT gay friendly. AVOID!!

We were not sure what to expect when we reserved our table for dinner during our visit over the Columbus Day weekend. We were a little weary of the low ratings the restaurant received. We were pleasant surprised at how much we really enjoyed our meal there. We loved the hostess (what a funny and friendly woman) and our waiter!... More

Interesting place. Varied menu. Cook sticks to the menu I guess because I couldn't change my omelette.

We had lunch here prior to a whale trip. I was looking forward to a lobster roll and a beer. The beer was good, but the lobster roll was very disappointing - overcooked and rubbery. Enough to turn one off lobster for life. The waiter kept wanting to give us the bill, so though we were wanting a coffee we... More
