Locals rave about this little Resturant. The food is local and dependable . Nothing fancy here except the views. The beer soft drinks are self serve amd you pay on the honor system. Open seasonally.

Everything about Provisions is nothing short than perfect. Love the Atmosphere! Friendly staff. Doesn't take long to get your food. Peel and eat shrimp with a crab cake is the way to go!
