While visiting Provincetown, there's a wide selection of restaurants to choose from. The Governor Bradford in the heart of P-town is a good choice with easy access, indoor and outdoor seating, and in our case, a buy-one-entree-get the second at half price offer which made the decision easy. The four of us had seafood - my seafood platter included half a lobster, king crab, mussels, steamers, and little neck clams at less than $30 - bargain by itself. The food arrived at the table hot, was fresh and not overdone, and fit perfectly with the New England seafood experience we were hoping for. Dinner for four including multiple drinks was about $160 all in including tip, a reasonable dining experience in the heart of New England. The Governor Bradford is on our list for a return visit!

We were waiting for our whale watch in Provincetown, and found the Gov. Bradford to be just what we needed at lunchtime. Our waitress was very kind and attentive to the grandchildren, and our food was tasty, from scallop roll to lobster roll to chowders and bisque. Lobster wontons were also good, as was the Cape Cod Reuben.

My husband and I had come here before. We love the Drag Karaoke. It is always such a good time. We got there about half an hour before the entertainment started so figured we would eat a small snack to pass the time. We ordered the cheese fries and were mortified! The cheese was bad. The texture was like if you cook fondue too high. It was gritty and disgusting. His beer was expired by about three months and mine was nine months past the sell by date. We had an amazing time with the karaoke but we will definitely not be eating or drinking anything from here again. Consider yourself warned.

This was a blemish on our vacation. The wait was excruciating and our server was in inattentive and oblivious. The experience was extremely hard with a toddler but I am very pleased that she did not eat her food now that I see reviews mentioning food borne illness. My husbands lobster roll was hysterically small (sorry, honey!). Overall the wait was obnoxious, food portions awful but tasted okay, and it was unclear whether the staff knew they were working
Fingers crossed we won't get sick! P.S. the bathroom smells foul. There is an apologetic note on the mirror, but still... It stinks.
