We came here twice during a one week vacation. Patio seating outside is great, at a quieter, but still lively, end of Commercial Street. Our waitperson suggested the fried avocado appetizer and The Frenchie burger - both were awesome. We were so happy with our meal, we came back and had the same thing later in the week. They also...

We always stop in at Local 186 when visiting PTown. Delicious food - especially the fried artichoke hearts. This most recent visit I ordered the pulled pork sliders and they were phenomenal. It does get very busy so be prepared for a wait if no reservations.

I came here last week with my sister's family, which included nieces aged 8 and 12. We managed to find something for everyone, including the niece who is a die-hard vegan. All good food and the waitress was extremely helpful and anticipatory of our needs. Also nice wines.

We had a 15 minute wait and did so at the bar. The male bartender ignored us and when the female one came back she served us right away. Quickly we were brought to our table - great waitress. We ordered the lobster salad - cleaned the plate, lobster sliders that were very creamy and opted for a side salad... More

We came here for supper as this is the best burger place in Ptown. We split a burger and fries and added a side of onion strings (the burgers are 8 oz so half is just right for us!). Delicious burger...juicy and full of flavour, yummy fries. Terrific and friendly service as well as a great people watching sight!

Perfect lunch (and probably dinner) place. Immaculate Wellfleets. Burgers were AMAZING, also cooked perfectly , which is not that common. Some flexibility with substitutions, with supplements. Delicious onion straws. Fun, enjoyable, delicious. Very knowledgable and helpful servers.

Stopped here again this past week while in P-town for the week with a number of friends. We love the bar scene the best and the hot bartender they have. He makes great drinks and is great with conversation.

Build your own, either regular or Kobe. Very tasty. And, the lobster salad was amazing -- a full lobster tail. We sat down at around 6:45, getting a table right away, but it started to fill up fairly quickly. Still, there was no lineup when we left (tho the restaurant was full) - it's at the far end of Commercial... More

Three years i a row - so what fight it. Sometimes I just don't fight it and will eat at the same place several times on a trip. I think Local 186 has become that place for me since its launch. Its a great place to go for breakfast, lunch or dinner, with friends or a date. From its pretty... More

Three friends and I were able to snag an outdoor table right by the street for dinner, which was great as we were able to people watch everything happening on the ever entertaining Commercial St. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The cocktails were delicious, the rose was ice cold, and the fried avocados and brussel sprout appetizers were so... More
