The food is really good. If you have a hankering for a salad bar, stop at VR's. We've tried many menu items, and it's all really good. Had a tuna special a few days ago. Terrific.

We found this restaurant on our way to Provincetown. It was quiet and on the elegant side. We had a nice breakfast, nothing unusual but generous enough to satisfy. They had a real good cp of coffee!

The boiled lobster was probably overpriced but the service ( Karen ) was great. My husband's duck was perfect. We shared a peach cobbler with brandy and a latte which topped off the meal. They were closed the next two nights so we couldn't go...More
