The Red Shack is a great place for takeout in Provincetown. Located right off of Commercial Street. I've had the pizza , chicken, hamburger and a lobster roll at various times and all were very good. The fries alone are worth the visit.

I can only echo previous reviews of this small street side snack bar. It advertises that it sells the best lobster roll in town and I must agree that this does not break the trades descriptions act in my opinion. The delicious Portuguese sub type...More

What a discovery! I had one of the finest lobster rolls I've ever had! The lobster was tender and drenched in butter! I was a happy camper!!!

best in town lobster rolls, and very reasonable price; you get your moneys worth. No inside or outside dining, but you can sit on benches located in the center of the street or on the wharf.
