The caller outside alerts you to the daily special(s). Always consistent food and good service. GREAT views of the Provincetown Harbor. Feels a bit like a diner but on the water.

We've eaten lunch at Betsy's three times over the years. As others have mentioned, the restaurant has a really great view over the harbor. But not all tables can see it equally well, so if the view matters to you call them for a reservation...More

Wandered into Betsy's while I was on my own for the day in P-town, and had a lovely lobster roll lunch. It was simple, straight ahead, and the service I received was great. Looking forward to trying them again when I'm back in the fall....More
