We've been vacationing in P-town since Saturday. So far, we've tried the following:
Clem & Ursies: We'd heard about this place from lots of places. We ate there as soon as we got into town. GREAT fried clams... maybe the best I've ever had. We went there for the lobster roll. My partner had the hot roll sauteed in butter and garlic. I had the lobster salad roll. Hers was much better. I found the lobster salad, despite having HUGE chunks of very fresh lobster, didn't have much flavor. We also tried the clam chowder--good, but nothing to write home about.
Cafe Heaven: Ate here for brunch on Monday. Again, heard lots of reviews. I had the nicoise salad which was served as an arranged salad and was delicious. My partner had a California caprese--all the usual ingredients plus avocado. They were both fresh, well-prepared, and yummy.
Surf Restaurant: Stopped in here for a quick bite before our whale excursion. We had the fried clams (not nearly as good as C&U) and an avocado/lobster wrap. Nothing special either way.
Lobster Pot: Heard tons of mixed reviews about this place. The decor/atmosphere is very fun and what I'd expect from a NE lobster place. We both had the lobster and clambake. My partner had the stuffed lobster. It was very bread-y but had lots of seafood: whole scallops, shrimp. She covered it in hot sauce and loved it. The steamers were mussels and were delicious--cooked in a tomato sauce and sweet. My lobster was very tough. I think it was over-cooked and I probably should have sent it back. The pumpkin bread, as others have mentioned, is delicious. The clam chowder is good, but not extraordinary. If I went back, I'd try one of the one-pot-wonders they have. I'm not sure I'll go back, though.
So... what now? We have the rest of the week left and don't want to miss any great places. What about Mews? Red Inn? Patio? Is the Red Inn as good as everyone says?
