Stopped here to meet up with a friend. The food was very good and the portions plentiful. The atmosphe was nice to have a great catch up. The view was lovely and they have free parking. Recommended

Our seat was perfect overlooking the sidewalk. Great people watching. Our waitress was welcoming and knowledgeable. Our lunch and wine choice, with input from the staff was excellent. Pretty good value for all of that. Totally recommend going there. I look forward to returning.

We sat outside on a nice after-labor-day trip. Really good food choices, nicely done. Good service and fair prices. P-town has many choices and this is a good one.

Friends enjoyed the mussels and I had the chowder, the drinks were perfect. The busy atmosphere was fun and enjoyable. Would highly recommend stopping by.

We ended up here as it was late on a Monday night. We could not park near the restaurant we were originally selected via reviews and being open late. The host there recommended Bubala's ... it's where he goes. Bubala's was just down the road...More

Walking past it looked good for dinner. No problem seated outside watching the passing crowd. Service and food was excellent, lots of choice and reasonable prices. It was the best meal we had in the few days in town.

Really good burger, well cooked with plenty of flavour. Sat outside in a pleasant setting. Worth a visit.

We visited this restaurant as it was the closest shelter from today’s wild rain and thunder storm. We stumbled into a great little place. Our traveling partner has eaten clam chowder at least once per day all over New England during our eight day road...More

The food is ok. I'd return again. Its not great but they have a nice patio on Commercial Street for relaxing and watching people walk by.
