Going to be in Orleans for Thanksgiving, but will be on my own with a limited budget for the rest of the weekend....any suggestions?

    I would definitely try Fanizzi's by the Sea in PTown, gallery district. Great food, I think reasonably priced and the water view is great.

      We found a great place on the ocean in Wellfleet this summer. good fried food, good music, lively scene. Make sure its open in Nov. (?).

        The "Comber" is closed for the winter.

        Further to this The Beachcomber is only open Memorial Day to Labour Day. I love The Mews in P Town.

          Mews is terrific. Inexpensive it's not.

            Second the recommendation but it is not cheap....

          Darn...I was hoping for SOME good inexpensive food on the Cape while I was there. I guess nicky D's is it

            Dwarff, don't count everything out. There are plenty of places you can go and sit at the bar, have a glass of wine and an appetizer or salad and enjoy yourself MUCH more than Mickey D's. How about the bar at Mahoneys in Orleans - they have some great apps (I usually get seafood but I'm sure there's others you'd enjoy) Great atmosphere, jazz often on weekends....

              good luck even finding a micky-d's between orleans and p-town! they just don't exist (not that that is a bad thing). There are several inexpensive restaurants in wellfleet, but I am not sure if they are open after thanksgiving. The Bookstore can be good (and, can be bad), and it overlooks the bay. You could easily have a nice glass of wine, and a salad or app. while watching the waves roll in. (http://www.wellfleetoyster.com/ ). Also, there is the lighthouse in wellfleet center, which used to be open year-round, plus they do mexican night on thursdays which is a lot of fun! good luck!

              Try The Beacon Room in Orleans - Just off rte. 6A behind the Shaws shopping center. Good food, nice people and a reasonable price. Have a good time!!
