Lunch in Provincetown

vozick Jul 25, 2006 12:19 PM

We are taking a day trip and want to walk around Provincetown and eat a casual but wonderful lunch. We will be 2 adults with a 16 year old charming grand daughter. All suggestions welcome!

    Just had lunch at Ross's today. Busy and loud. Nice views, charming hostess and great waitstaff. Piping hot French onion soup. Warm but delicious mushroom bisque. Ordinary chicken with mozz and proscuitto. Spider rolls was a small or half a softshell crab in a green stiff tasteless wrap. I ate the small bits of crab and left the wrap. 2 teas, 1 soda and 3 soups, 2 sandwiches: 50.83 before tip. Nothing to rave about. Maybe dinner is better.

      We're vacationing in Provincetown right now. With only a few exceptions, my wife and I find food in Provincetown generally unremarkable and overpriced. This trip, Level and Clem & Ursie's fit that description. The Lobster Pot and Cafe Heaven were terrific last year; we haven't made it to either yet this year.

      But my reason for logging on to Chowhound at all this evening is that I had the best dinner of the trip this evening. It was better than the foofy expensive joints, and half the cost. Oddly enough, The Art House (which used to be just a coffeehouse) is my new favorite place in P-Town. I'll be back daily until we leave--or at least I'll be back Thursday through Sunday, the only days they're open.

      And no, I'm not a sock puppet. I'm just inordinately excited to finally get some great food out here.

        I like Bubala's on the water for lunch. They also have parking.

          Oh, and avoid anything that claims to be pizza, even if the restaurant has the words "New York" in its name.

          We had a great lunch at The Lobster Pot. Best clam chowder I have had. My wife had a killer lobster roll and I had crab slad which was excellent. All fresh. Service was great. Place was clean. My kids loved it . My in-laws liked it too

            You can't miss a stop @ Clem and Ursies...a little off the beaten track in P-Town. But the best experience you will ever have! Lobsters cooked to order.....freshly made fried belly clams, onion rings, chowder....raw bar....sushi....
            the list goes on and on!

              Also check out Cafe Heaven and Bistro at Crown Point. Unfortunately, many of the nicer restaurants aren't open for lunch.

                I would suggest Ross' Grill on the second floor of the Whaler's Wharf arcade. You will have lovely food and a nice view of the harbor.

                  Dunno if Cafe Edwige does lunch but you might check it out. It's not really "casual" but somehow it is... not stuffy. Definitely "wonderful". If they don't serve lunch I bet they can direct you to the right spot.
