Even from a middle table, you can see the water. The mixed drinks were great and the food was solidly good. The service was friendly but slow.More

The caller outside alerts you to the daily special(s). Always consistent food and good service. GREAT views of the Provincetown Harbor. Feels a bit like a diner but on the water.
