Restaurants in Provincetown

This pun-loving destination is a high-end but cool bakery and sandwich shop.

The upper and lower dining rooms of this East End Provincetown restaurant are as different as day and night. Upstairs, the Tuscany Room includes paintings from the namesake region, while the main room boasts big windows, high ceilings, mirrors, a brick fireplace, and a garden view.

The neon-lit exterior of the Lobster Pot, in Provincetown, makes it an often-photographed spot. Order the lobster as God intended it—steamed, with drawn butter on the side.

Well-heeled locals come here for jazz, rosé champagne, and the freshest raw oysters around (only $1.25 apiece at happy hour).

Set in the basement of a Victorian house, Provincetown’s Front Street is owned by Donna Aliperti and Kathleen Cotter, who can usually be seen in the kitchen making dishes like pan-seared salmon with Swiss chard dumplings, white bean coulis, and sage.

Wrap up your day with a seafood dinner with an ocean vista at the casual restaurant, where the menu naturally includes scampi, fried whole belly clams, and scallops plucked from the water outside.
