    You can eat overlooking the harbor or out front and people watch. The bah mi sandwiches were great. The Brussels sprouts were to die for and the corn on the cob was super sweet. Skip the baked beans.

    If you're a banh mi fan, don't miss the cod banh mi. Using cod makes it uniquely New England. All the other ingredients are what you'd expect and done really well.

    The best Lobster Rolls in PTown with a gorgeous view to match. Treat yourself to a frosé while you wait for the cute staff to bring your food to the backyard. I make this my first stop every trip.

    One of the best lobster rolls I've ever had. Sit out back, and take in the view of the water while you eat.

    Hot lobster roll is delectable. He large and rustic back patio is great... and although the line might be long, it moves fast, and the food comes out quickly.

    Great fish tacos with sides of spicy baked beans and corn on cob. Fish and chips is tasty too. Piece de resistance is definitely the fried Brussels sprouts! Sit out back and take in the ocean view.

    The hot lobster roll is a delicious buttery treat not to be missed. This chunky delight, served on a thick Texas toast bun, is one of the best lobster rolls I have had.

    Best lobster roll on the outer Cape! Ask for your bun to be toasted. Amazing soups. Fantastic baked goods. Open year round!

    Expensive af, but so cute. Grab a Frosè and head to the back to watch the sunset light. Oysters are nice and fresh two, but the lobster roll is a little skimpy.

    Best place for Lobster Rolls in P-Town, next to the Beach. Even there's some line outside it deserves the wait.

    You can't go wrong with the kale and quinoa salad, Brussels sprouts, lobster roll or Bloody Mary oysters... But if you love Brussels sprouts... Get them!

    Great place with a view of Provincetown harbor for lunch or dinner. Recommend the caramelized Brussels sprouts, fish tacos and fish and chips.

    The Cod Banh Mi is unreal. Food is incredibly refreshing and compliments a hot, sunny day. Other great options are the Shrimp Sliders and Wellfleet Oysters.

    Hot buttery lobster rolls. If the lobsters could taste themselves covered in butter they would willingly give their lives to create this sandwich.

    Best food in Ptown for the money. Brussels sprouts are a must do! And warm lobster roll is best on the cape.

    Cod Banh Mi is better than the cold lobster roll. If you must do lobster roll get the CT style with butter.

    The brussel sprouts are to die for! The lobster roll isn't pumped full of mayo which is refreshing for a change, but I am slightly disappointed. I was expecting it to taste better.

    Holy cow, you must get the lobster roll here. Warm with drawn butter. Best one I've had.

    Fish and chips are great, super casual back garden looking out on to the water makes it a perfect afternoon stop.

    If you are from a place that is not uptight about booze like this place is, order a bottle of wine and use their plastic cups to make is seem as though you are drinking water and take it with you.

    Lobster and oysters are awesome... And it may taste even better if you have them in the rear patio!
