Realized lobster hunt doesn’t peak until mid summer. Fun place. Great service. Didn’t matter. I don’t think mayo was in sandwich

Chowder is to die for, and the Halibut was wonderful! Coming from a person who normally does not eat seafood.

I love this place - ! The seafood is extraordinary and I love the 'Waterfront Dining!' On my most recent visit, we arrived just a tad before the lunch crowd, having taken the 'fast ferry' from Boston. Then, we couldn't believe our incredible luck, being...More

I had convinced myself that the L P wasn’t anything more than a tourist trap, in spite of all the excellent reviews. Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong. We were in Provincetown with another couple and went there for lunch. We were lucky enough...More

We stopped here just before noon, and got a great table for 2 inside, overlooking the beach. Philip provided us with excellent service, and the food was just what we were looking for. It's great to have fresh seafood on the Cape that isn't deep...More

Smoothies and fruity drinks were delicious Bit disappointed in the chowder, but chips and salads were good. Couldn't bring myself to order lobster, seems so mean to have them live on top of each other in the tanks. I wouldn't bother going again.

Hello All, Both our dining rooms are wrapped in glass overlooking the harbor. We do have a deck off the second floor but it's just a place to enjoy the view and a cocktail while we prepare your table.

No parking on Commercial street, but there is a public lot not far away. If you have handicapped/elders, you could drop them off and then go up the hill to park.
