After my wife had a pretty good trout dinner at the Red Inn several nights before, we decided we would try again for a Friday night dinner. The place was crowded and it seemed that the waitstaff was overwhelmed. Everything on the menu sounded good but all of it tasted like it had been cooked two days earlier and then just reheated before service. The bacon wrapped fried oysters that came with my Caesar salad were greasy and rubbery and cool. The avocado foam on my wife's beet salad could've been anything… It had no flavor at all. The slow braised pork shank special lacked seasoning and it sat on top of a rather flavorless pile of grits. It seemed that the best dish on our table that night was the Kobe beef sliders our daughter had ordered. Like any other restaurant in Provincetown, this place suffers from the fact that it is seasonal, and therefore good help is hard-to-find. Provincetown is not the place to go for fine dining… But the views of the water don't suck.
