Stopped in for a steak on the weekend, the steak was great, cooked exactly as I asked, and every bite melted in my mouth. I have been going for a long time and will enjoy my weekend steaks there in the future.

We are from England and on holiday, staying in Truro. My husband and I came across this restaurant by chance when we wanted to find somewhere to eat rather than having to do the drive into Provincetown. We were charmed by the atmosphere and surroundings and welcomed warmly by the staff. I am surprised to see so many negative reviews... More

I stopped by to get dinner at the bar a little before 9pm. I asked if they were still serving. The bar was full of people. The woman who greeted me told me the kitchen shut down at 9 and that if I stayed I had 4 minutes to order. I headed into the bar which was still full of... More

My wife and I arrived early enough to partake of the early bird specials which consists of 5 courses for very reasonable price. I had baked cod and my wife the grilled pork chops. Both were cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. The restaurant has a nautical theme with numerous items such as buoys, harpoons and pictures of... More

My husband and I have been vacationing at the Cape for over 40 years, and the Whitman House was one of those old, traditional American Cuisine restaurants. Good seafood and steaks, quaint, old-New England style interior and good service. For the past few years we've seen some inconsistencies in service and food quality, and the meal we had there last...

We had spent the day on the beach and were trying to figure out a casual place to eat. Being May,we figured it was safe to drive, we wound up here unexpectedly. It fit the bill perfectly. We both decided on the same two dishes, so we ordered them to split, Baked Stuffed Shrimp and Chicken ala Whitman. We enjoyed... More
