These are four of our favorites and, in our opinion, the best restaurants in Provincetown. If you can get a reservation, run, don’t walk – you won’t be disappointed. Both Ross’ and Jimmy’s are small and fill up fast in the evening. Consider lunch! All four could be considered American/Continental cuisines with a P-town flare. All have great bars and solid wine lists.
The Mews Restaurant & Café
429 Commercial Street Provincetown • (508) 487-1500
A café’ and bar upstairs with a more formal dining room downstairs, The Mews also has an extensive vodka collection for their martini menu. The dining room is at beach level and overlooks the P-town harbor. The menu is creative, the presentation delightful and the food excellent.
237 Commercial Street Provincetown • (508) 487-8878
Ross’ Grill has floor to ceiling windows overlooking the harbor. If you have to wait for a table, have a drink on the terrace watching the boats, birds and people come and go. It is located upstairs in the back of Whalers Wharf in the center of town. We have eaten at this restaurant at least a dozen times and always loved our meal. Caesar, the bartender, makes a great margarita and always has an excellent wine recommendation. If you can’t get there for dinner, stop in for lunch or a late afternoon pick-me-up.
179 Commercial Street Provincetown • (508) 487-1011
Run by Jimmy and Raife, this restaurant is like coming to a good friend’s home for dinner. Jimmy’s Hideaway has a warm, cozy atmosphere. The main dining area has tables tucked into nooks and corners and a fireplace for those cool evenings. The beautiful bar area also has tables, but you can dine at the bar, too – always a chance to make new friends.
The Red Inn
15 Commercial Street Provincetown • (508) 487-7334
Recently renovated the Red Inn sits on the beach on the extreme west end of P-town. Tables line the windows giving diners spectacular views of Provincetown and the harbor. With new tables added and much larger bar area this P-town classic is better than ever. If you can’t get here for dinner try it for a Sunday brunch either way you won’t be disappointed the food is great.
Open for a good part if not all year long these spots are just good solid restaurants that cater not just to tourists. There still good when everybody has left for the summer.
7 Freeman St # 3 Provincetown • (508) 487-1145
A Provincetown institution with an eclectic menu of; pasta, seafood and Portuguese dishes, Warm and cozy atmosphere. Great Family dining & full bar. Open all year long. Enjoy!
73 Shank Painter Road Provincetown • (508) 487-1530
Located off the beaten path over on Shank Painter Road near the Stop & Shop. Hard to describe…… but perhaps a upscale diner with a P-town flare. Everything you order here is spectacular from Benedict Specials like Oysters Benedict to Southwest influenced Breakfast Burritos and Huevos Rancheros . We’ve always thought of this as a Breakfast/ Brunch spot but recently they have gotten a liquor license and are serving dinner. If you are in town off season check there hours and you might want to make it a plan to be there for “Mexican Night”
539 Commercial Street Provincetown • (508) 487-1964
Located in the East end with a view of the harbor this year round restaurant is where locals have dined for years. Primarily focused on Italian cuisine with seafood specials they have a large menu full of choices. Food is always good and the atmosphere is warm and charming . Fanizzi’s also does a big Sunday Brunch.
Whether it’s a slice a muffin a breakfast sandwich or a quick something to stay or go these are some of the best that we have found.
190 Commercial Street Provincetown • (508) 487-2808
If your somewhere between breakfast and dinner or on your way home from the bars and you find yourself on Commercial and need to grab something run into Spiritus and grab a slice of the Spinach Margarita or any of the thin slice classics . They do have seating inside and out back,
Far Lands Provisions
150 Bradford St, Provincetown • (508) 487-0045
Great baked goods & sandwiches is only the start of what Far Lands has to offer. It’s actually a high end convenience store with wine, beer, pate and cheese. Check out their prepared foods in the deli case like crab cakes, stuffed grape leaves, meat loaf etc… They make great breakfast sandwiches and homemade soups daily. Eat in or take away you won’t be disappointed.
205 Commercial St Provincetown • (508) 487-2167
Recently moving to Commercial street (Aquarium Mall). Connie’s was on the other side of route 6 and no one ever regretted making to trip over to pick up delicious breads, cakes, pies and breakfast treats. Try them for a wide selection of bake goods and sandwiches.
Big Daddy Burritos
205 Commercial Street Provincetown • (508) 487-4432
If you’re hungry and on Commercial St. take a break from shopping and grab a made to order Burrito with all the fixings (fresh ingredients) and walk through to the outdoor eating area on the harbor for a great cheap lunch with a view. We like the classic chicken or the Roast Pork but they have vegetarian selections as well.
Great Spots for Breakfast and Lunch all on Commercial Street. Fresh ingredients, good cooking interesting variations on comfort cuisine.
401 1/2 Commercial St Provincetown • (508) 487-4773
Simple fresh seasonal and local food prepared well…..Devon’s is also open for dinner
199 Commercial St # 10 Provincetown • (508) 487-9639
Good food interesting variations & combinations always fresh open for breakfast and lunch only small with limited seating. Daily specials.
333 Commercial Street Provincetown • (508) 487-2008
Food is always of high quality and the surroundings very comfortable in this 2nd floor cozy spot above commercial. Restaurant is also open at night
371 Commercial Street Provincetown • (508) 487-8717
Best Spot to be from 5:00 till sunset with people that you enjoy and something cold in hand. Pepe’s has a great view of the Harbor from their 2nd floor bar and outdoor railing. It’s the perfect place to end the day with a cocktail and if the weather is nice you will understand what they mean when they talk about “Cape Light” you’ll wish you could paint.
