Cape highs and lows

Back from a nice jaunt to the Cape. High points: Sublime ear of corn at Moby Dick's in Wellfleet, along with excellent swordfish. Steamers were remarkably sandy, however, and the ordering system is byzantine--couldn't figure out who was our server at any given moment. Why not a proper waitstaff at those prices?
Low point: Getting charged $2 for a microscopic portion of hot sauce (2 tablespoonfuls, tops) at Caribbean Corner in P-Town. Food was good, but that kind of nickle-and-diming can ruin the mood for an entire meal, especially when the cuisine calls for hot sauce on lots of dishes. Won't ever be going back to that place.
Great meal and top-notch service at VIctor's. In all, good trip with lots of good food. I understand the economics of a seasonal town, but sad to see nickle-and-diming and harried, foreign waitstaff at places like Moby Dick's.
