Food Scene
An iconic Provincetown institution, The Red Inn is a historic building only a few steps from our place. Built in 1805, when you step across the threshold you are immediately taken by the historic character of the restaurant. While The Red Inn is amazing in all seasons, our favorite time of year to eat here is during the winter months. Sitting alongside the frozen bay and a fireplace, we love to enjoy a cocktail and their lobster and artichoke fondue. Since many of you are visiting in the warmer months, make reservations for dinner but come early for a drink at the bar or in one of the adirondack chairs on their deck.

Because it is very close to our home, we rarely start our day without coffee and a pastry from Relish and our beach days always feature a packed lunch from here as well. If you find yourself on the beach at our property and want something quick to eat or drink, Relish is the easiest place to go to.

Charming and quaint with a community feel, this place is a great option for breakfast on Commercial St. The walls are decorated with local art, and the staff goes above and beyond. They also serve dinner as well, though we have not tried their menu as of yet.

While you can walk to Liz's from our place, they also have a small parking lot where you might be able to find a spot. We love their eggs benedict options and coffee that reminds us of a favorite local diner near our home. If you like sitting at the counter, the "counter" here is an old boat which is fantastic. If you are a group of two or three, you can elect to sit at the community table in the window where you have the chance to sit with a few kind strangers and strike up interesting conversation.

This place holds a special place for us as we hosted our wedding dinner here after the ceremony. Located in the East End of town, the upstairs of the Mews has a casual cafe feel, while the downstairs offers a more formal atmosphere. Regardless of where your table is, you will experience phenomenal food and some of the best staff on the Cape. This place is a must while you stay with us.

Victor's is a great option if you want to try different types of food while you are in town. Known for their tapas fare served in dining room decorated in flawless coastal style, you will not have a bad meal. It is off the main strip, yet is a short walk from our home.

A hidden gem located on the second floor of Whaler's Wharf, Ross' Grill has a great selection of American fare and a superb wine/cocktail list. The dining room is small, so reservations are a must if you want to eat during peak times. If you can arrange a reservation at sunset, you can watch the sky over the bay turn a myriad of colors right from your table.

Joe is the place to go in the AM when you are in Provincetown. Great patio, cozy interior, and a wide array of baked goods and sandwiches for every taste. If you are early risers and can get yourself there early, you can easily beat the crowd and get a good seat. Otherwise, you can join those who like to sleep in and sit along the brick wall along the sidewalk which is fun as well.

As parents, we appreciate having a place like Bubala's. It is perfect for children and families and they offer outdoor seating for pets which makes this a great location for us. We typically go here for a late lunch/early dinner and are never disappointed. Sip a Jackie O martini on the patio and watch the activity of Commercial street, or choose an indoor location and get a glimpse of the bay.

Very short walk from our condo and easy to walk right past if you aren't paying attention. Choose between eating outdoors, on the water, or inside their quaint restaurant. Their Italian menu will offer a nice break from the standard lobster rolls.

A charming, local-feel. You can get your forgotten essentials here, but the pricing reflects the location. If you need that tube of toothpaste, find your way to Stop and Shop if you can.

Great place for wine and liquors, that is a short stroll from our place. We love the "wine in a can" options in the cooler. They pack quite the punch and are easy to pack for the beach. Friendly and knowledgable staff.

Located near our home, you can visit the place where the pilgrims first docked in the new world. Given its remote location, it is not often busy even during peak season. While you are down there, take a look at the breathtaking dunes. Catch a sunset here too, if you can.

Drinks & Nightlife
Our favorite spot during the warmer months, this bar offers incredible views of the harbor. There are also affordable eateries in the area where you can grab a slice of pizza, a burrito or some ice cream and head to the deck for spectacular views. We've been known to stop here "for a quick drink" before dinner and end up staying for an extra sip or two.

Tea Dance = summer in Provincetown. No visit to Ptown is completed without catching tea at 4pm each day here. Order the punch if you are looking for a cocktail that is subtle but effective and dance to some amazing tunes while enjoying the breeze from the bay.
