I sat on the patio with my wife, 2 kids and our dog. The food was OK but the best thing about the restaurant was the ability to people watch.

Where to start, first the Governor Bradford is one of the few places in Provincetown with reasonable prices. I found the food good and the portions of a nice size. Service was good and our waiter was pleasant and helpful. Drinks were ordered and quickly delivered. Sit outside if you can and watch the street scene unfold before you. An... More

A great spot in the middle of the action in Commercial Street. We loved the casual vibe and the chilled out feel. A great stop for drinks, snacks or a three course meal. Good outside area with sun and shade options. Gorgeous lobster roll and very tasty stuffed clams. Lobster bisque hit the mark also. Friendly staff.

Just wanted light lunch before walking Commercial Street. Weather was warm so ate outside. Took little bit of time for service but we were told before being seated. Ordered lobster roll and it was very good. Not much atmosphere, lot of street noise. Wait staff good but very busy.

We had passed several restaurants along the street looking at menus. We lured in with a two-for-one offer, and we weren't disappointed. Our waiter was friendly and hesitated a little as English wasn't his first language, he was sincere and tried hard. Seafood was great. We sat outside away from the speakers under an umbrella, although the sun had set.... More

Ordered the chicken sandwich and vegetarian burger. Food was OK at best. Fries were soggy. The dip that came with the sandwich was very nice. We felt the dishes were overly priced.

My husband and I went here late night for the karaoke, and we were blown away! It was definitely a fun way to end our trip to P'town!

We visited Provincetown and stopped at this place for lunch. Ordered a chocolate martini which was not very tasty. When I asked the waiter the price of the martini. he said he didn't know and said it would be no more then $10. He then returned and said it was more than $10. Service was slow and the waiter was...

My friend and I went for breakfast. An older waitress approached us and asked if we wanted bloody Mary's we declined and said just water and coffee would be fine. She seemed put out. When she eventually returned to take our order we asked if it was ok to just order sides as we are both vegan and there were... More
