Best Provincetown Restaurants

After a day spent on the beach or exploring the shops and galleries of Provincetown, plenty of options for good food await you in this funky Cape Cod town. From fried clam shacks to upscale dining, Provincetown has a great restaurant for every occasion. Let what you're in the mood for steer you towards a dinner reservation at one of the best Provincetown restaurants.

If you're in the mood for fresh, local seafood and a great cocktail, head to:

Patio | 328 Commercial St, Provincetown | (508) 487-4003

The mojitos and the "Monument" seafood tower are the big draw at Patio, the latter named for the Pilgrim Monument and filled with lobster tails, oysters on the half shell, steamed shrimp, and ceviche. As you might imagine, the best seats are on the restaurant's patio, with strings of lights overhead and heat lamps in the cooler seasons. Always good people watching in P'town too!

If it's a French brasserie with local seafood you're after, book a table at:

Joon Bar + Kitchen | 133 Commercial St, Provincetown | (508) 413-9336

Share small plates at this wine bar in its new West End location. Enjoy gourmet snacks like wood roasted wild mushrooms, fried Spanish olives stuffed with manchego cheese and buttermilk biscuit duck sliders. With a frequently changing menu and a wine list full of interesting choices, Joon is one of our favorite places for a cozy meal.

Tacos and frosé sound good? Try:

Canteen | 225 Commercial St, Provincetown | (508) 487-3800

Laid back, with outdoor seating, puns galore and strong drinks, Canteen captures the Cape Cod vibe perfectly. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Canteen offers a mix of comfort food classics like pot pies and seafood shack staples like fish and chips and lobster rolls. And don't miss the crispy Brussels sprouts in fish sauce!
