Pre-season Restaurant Reviews:
This town is pricy, even in the off season. One of the reasons we go camping is the price of food in PTown. We can cook for a week on what we'd spend in two days for meals out.
Joe's Cafe: great for coffee, breakfast and lunch. Outdoor seating. This place is usually packed during the regular season - you may never get a table. In March, it was busy, but tables were available. Dog friendly. As everything in town, a bit pricier than we are used to. Turkey sandwich with cranberry on multi grain bread, small bowl of soup (chili) and a bag of chips; Leon had a similar selection (with barley mushroom soup) and drink. About $17
Squealing Pig: Pub fare and and bar atmosphere. The two of us shared a salad, shared a bowl of potato leak soup and shared a seafood platter (cod, 4 shrimp, 4 scallops, fries, coleslaw) two draft beers. Everything was good, but even sharing was a hefty tab (about $40).
Fanizzi's: We were too late for the early bird specials. Bread was good and refilled; Leon had salad, meatloaf with mashed potatoes, diet coke; I had broiled cod with spinach and veggies, water; We each had coffee, apple-berry crisp with vanilla ice cream. One dessert would have been plenty. About $67.
Michael Shay's - a PTown standby for those on a budget: This place has become "complacent" - there is no care taken in decor or presentation. The service was lacking - the gay waiter seemed like he was afraid to come near us. He spent a lot of time chatting with other customers and staff. We had the early bird specials. The "complimentary appetizer" consisted of a soup bowl with a plastic cup of some non-descript dip and about 8 Ritz crackers that looked like they were leftover from someone's party. The salad came in a bowl for two and the waiter gave us only one plate - Leon ate his portion out of the serving bowl. I had three pieces of stuffed filet of sole and water, Leon had three stuffed shrimp and a diet coke. I also had heartburn later. No alcohol. About $36 for two of us - cheap by PTown standards but we would have had a better meal if we'd gone to the supermarket, for a roasted chicken and some salad and eaten it in the hotel room.
