We stopped by for lunch while visiting Provincetown for the day. We had the perfect table at the back of the dining room overlooking the bay. I had the crispy fish wrap--it was delicious. All the food on the menu looked inviting. The staff were...More

We got poor service (was told there would be 1-1/2 hour wait when place was emptying out) Chicken parm tasted awful and I ate none but was not offered a change or refund. We actually felt unwelcome by the host and waitstaff.
