We found this restaurant because they hired a person to stand on the main street to advertise it - and we looked at the menu and found several possibilities (having a shellfish allergy is not an advantage on Cape Cod!). We chose to eat there and enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. There is an outside patio but we ate in the traditional looking interior. Had this restaurant been directly on the main street, we would have had to pay $10-15 more for our entrees. Would return on our next visit.

This is a great spot off the main drag of Commercial Street that provides for a bit of quiet. We love the atmosphere of the inside for it's rustic quaintness. The service the 3 times we have eaten there has always been extremely friendly.

Of the meals we have eaten, the lobster and the Meditarranean scrod have been outstanding. On our most recent meal there, we each had one of their seafood casserole dishes (either lobster or a mix of seafoods). For these dishes, there was way too much ritz cracker crumbs, so I'd recommend to the chef or to the person ordering these dishes to ask that this be minimized as it made finding the seafood meat tricky and it was pretty dry. In general, I recommend going with foods with less coating. Other than that, it's a great place.

Went here twice during my stay in Provincetown, MA. Had seafood (shrimp, scallops, lobster) cooked two different ways. Both were excellent! The waitstaff was most congenial and helpful. I would highly recommend it. In addition, if you parked in the public parking area, it's on the way!!
