    We have been to Ross' Grill before but after this visit on Saturday night, we will never go back. The bartender did everything he could think if before offering us assistance. Our waitress had an awful attitude, she wS busy and had no time for questions or repeating the specials. We weren't offered bread or any small salty treat to help our appetites while we waited. The halibut was too dry to eat, the red sauce on the ravioli was uncooked and should never have left the kitchen. The good news is that there are plenty of other restaurants in Provincetown.

    Popular place where we had to wait for our table even though we had a reservation. Luckily, the outdoor deck where we waited was gorgeous - fantastic view and very comfy. entire restaurant looks out over the water and has a nice atmosphere. Hostess was incredibly nice about our wait and service overall was excellent. Food was great although lamb chops were a bit too fatty. Other meat dishes and fish were awesome. I would definitely go back.

    We had a nice dinner here. It was busy, but we were not in a rush and happy to enjoy a drink pm the deck before dinner, although as we were ordering our drinks at the bar a table opened up so we never made it that far. We shared salads and oysters and ordered steak and seafood specials. Food was pretty good and wine even better. Everything came really fast though, and I would have preferred a slower paced dinner.

    ross grille was our favorite for a special occasion (celebrating partners 50th.) the waiter didn't seem interested as waitstaff (Kat, excellent) in the past. wine was reasonable; salads served, waiting for black pepper, entrees too soon to follow; steak frites, great steaks (fries used to be served in a paper cone) fries were soggy from steamed broccoli, 2 same entrées ordered, 1 much larger steak in comparison; rib eye chimicurri special (excellent sauce) cooked perfect but very thin cut, the plate 3/4 mashed potato; seafood risotto lacked seafood (1 lobster claw) but tasty. Our reservation was for 9pm, maybe too late; staff was eating at table in the back... we paid our check, skipped another round of drinks, coffee & dessert. overall OK.

  • Great food but too loud and pricey
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/5/2014
    The food here is amazing. It really is. Is it way too expensive? Yes. But in line with what you pay in town. Our waiter was fantastic, but the bartender had a chip on his shoulder and was not especially friendly when we asked him a question about a drink. Plus the cosmos he made for our guests were way too strong and they didn't end up finishing them. My biggest problem, though, is the noise level. It was so loud in there (which it had not been on previous visits) that I couldn't hear the person sitting next to me. It actually took away from my dining experience, and made my very expensive pork chop not as appetizing.

    Recommended to me while we were in P-town for a couple of days. Food and service were excellent. Menu seemed limited at first but there were abundant fresh and freshly caught specials to choice from. Would not hesitate to recommend to others. Only complaint was it is quite dark so consider a little flashlight to read the menu if your eyes are ageing.

    I had an 8 pm reservation. I arrived only to be told that my table was not ready and I was offered to go to the bar. I did so and waited for approximately 45 minutes. This did not bother me but the rest of the evening did. I was finally seated and given a wine list I ordered a bottle of wine and was told they were out of that particular bottle. I ordered a second choice and was told they were out of that one too. Miraculously they had the most expensive bottle in stock. I ordered dinner and got the seafood resotto. It consisted of 2 scallops , 2 shrimp and one piece of lobster. The rest was all risotto. It was aweful. I shared all this with the manager who could have cared less. I would pass on this one.

    Food, raw bar and wine list are excellent. I'm a big fan of the Chicken Liver Pate appetizer. Extensive list of wines by the glass. Overall excellent choice in Provincetown if you can stand the noise level. Poor acoustics make it difficult to hold a conversation. That's the only negative.

    Decent place is all I can say. Really don't know why it is packed. Service was slow, very very slow. Don't know if it was the kitchen or the server. You can always expect restaurants to be a little off here in P-Town but was way off. Gazpacho was horrible, puréed vegetables and just a tomato base no nuance. Lobster, shrimp and scallops Risotto was ok not outstanding. They did comp us a drink for the entree wait so at least they recognized slow service.

    Ross'Grill is our go-to place for my husband's annual birthday dinner. They always have something interesting and unique on the menu or the chef's specials. We have never been disappointed. Their mussel preparation is one of the best in Provincetown. The service and views are spectacular. You simply must try this place when you visit Provincetown.

    Been coming here for years. Always great food and great service. What happened? Service SUCKED. Pains me to write this. Had a 1pm reservation for 9 and they allowed us to up it to 12. Drinks were great! The waitress was awful. She brought us the wrong food. For example, my friend ordered caesar salad with grilled steak. She got grilled steak frittes. Sent nothing back as we didn't want to wait. Took over an hour before any food arrived. Got there shy of 1pm and food started hitting the table at 2:18. Will say - food was excellent. So disappointed with the service. I will go back (great food) but would only sit at the bar and have Cesar wait on me or if with friends, keep it at 4 max. No large parties.

    My wife and I ate here recently along with three of my cousins and we all enjoyed it very much. Two of us had the lobster, shrimp & scallop risotto, which was fabulous. The two desserts we all shared were marvelous--blueberry & peach pie and the banana bread pudding. We recommend them highly. The restaurant has a great view, although it is not possible to actually eat on the deck, which is a shame. All in all, though, it was a very nice dining experience.

    Ross' Grill was our favorite Provincetown Restaurant-- until this year. I booked dinner more than 2 weeks in advance to ensure a Saturday reservation. We arrived on time but still had to wait nearly a half hour to be seated. The owner comped us wine while we waited, however, but only after we asked. Two of us had the halibut special, one had cod, and one had filet mignon. The filet was excellent, but all the fish dishes were dry and overcooked. The vegetable sides were excellent, however, as were the PEI mussels. The ambience-- overlooking Provincetown Bay at sunset-- was priceless, and our food server was attentive but not overbearing. Given the priciness of the food, small portions, and poor prep we likely will not return soon.

    Seafood risotto was amazing--eat at the bar and let Cesar take care of selecting wines--you won't be sorry. The view out to the harbor, the consistently good food, and the graciousness of owner-bartender Cesar make this our favorite restaurant away from home. We always have a warm welcome here and a positive dining experience, even though we're only in Ptown once or twice a year.

    I would rate them 0 stars if I could. The hostess tried to sit us at a small high top table in a corner. I looked around and saw 3 other 4 top tables with only 2 people at each table. There were also 2 open tables and we asked to be moved over to one of them. She said that they were already taken by other guests.. I didn't see anyone waiting for a table. So I asked why could you give out 3 other tables to a parties of 2 but not us? She said they were there earlier. But I have a reservation for a table not a high top. She was very dismissive & didn't even try to accomendate us like a hostess would do normally. It was that or nothing. I looked on open table & was able to make a res. for 4 at the same time as mine 8pm. She Lied & was rude!!!

    Ross' Grill came to us as a recommendation from a local part time resident of the cape. Not to be missed if you're looking for some ambiance, good food and DELICIOUS drinks (which by the way are double the size of any regular restaurant). The Friday night we visited (8:30 PM) the place was full and the bar was hopping. Our server, Katherine, was adorable and charming.

    Sitting at a window table overlooking the beach and harbor…what could be bad? The food is wonderful, and the service is attentive. We enjoyed Local Littlenecks, Steamed with Andouille Sausage, Sautéed Soft-Shell Crab appetizer-sized and dinner-sized, and succulent Pan-seared Duck Breast à l’Orange (order it rare). The wines are reasonably-priced. Everything is fresh and tasty.

    I have never understood the raves for this restaurant. The food is consistently mediocre (and in the most recent case, inedible), the servers are surly and rude and for all of this you get to pay some of the highest prices in PTown. The fisherman's stew was so overcooked that the unappealing hunks of fish were like leather. So bad that I abandoned half of the meal and left hungry. And when I told the waitress and then the hostess no one seemed to care. There are so many better options...

    I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. To me, that's the highest compliment that I can give to a restaurant. The view is serene and picturesque, a Cape Cod snapshot. The outdoor deck delivers what people imagine when they picture the Cape: moored boats, water, and a sandy strip of beach. When I am in P'Town, Ross' Grille is on my food radar.
