Had lunch here yesterday. The Tom Hollywood sandwich was delicious and the crispy brussel sprouts with fish oil were yummy. I'd go back here again.

I stumbled upon Canteen last week and loved it. The Cape is full of bad, over-priced food ... but not so at Canteen. The food was yummy (I had clam chowder and a caprese sandwhich), the atmosphere charming (loved the enamelware dishes and communal seating) and the staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. Everything on the menu looked great. Definitely going back. Highly recommend it! (note to Canteen: Keep up the good work and the friendly attitude, and you'll continue to have an advantage over most of your competition in Ptown.)

Canteen is a great addition to Provincetown, we ate there six times for lunch and wish we could have stayed in town longer to work our way around the menu. Terrific Caprese sandwich, chicken and cranberry salad sandwich, two different Bahn-Mi (cod, and shrimp), fish and chips, and grilled sardines with a really delicious kale salad were among the few dishes we tried, all of them well prepared with great ingredients. The people are friendly, the space is cheery, their own lemonade and iced tea were delicious, and really there are very few such places where it all comes together like this. Would love to try the raw bar, the crispy brussel sprouts, and many other tasty-looking dishes we saw others enjoying, but so little time... Canteen quickly became a favorite stop despite our desire to try a number of other places in town, but why take a chance when everything was so tasty and fairly priced right here?

Enjoyed a grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a piece of corn on the cob. Fun casual atmosphere. Wish they didn't use those strange Ipad devices for signing your credit card receipt. You're supposed to use your finger--not the most hygienic choice. They were nearly out of desserts quite early in the evening--which seemed a miscalculation on their part as the night was young. All in all--a pleasant experience. Be sure to check out their specials.

This is a brand new spot on Commercial Street. It focuses on seafood but has many other treats that are wonderful. Its nice to see someone trying to be creative while not giving up on quality. Provincetown is not the best destination for food but this helps bring it up a notch. The place is nicely decorated too. The service was mediocre though. The staff seemed sleepy.
