Pepe's is well known for its incredible waterfront views overlooking Provincetown Harbor. We have 2 fantastic decks, with one incredible view due to our unique location directly on the beach in Provincetown. Pepe's is the place where you can enjoy delicious New England inspired cuisine, or one of our many cocktail creations. Our Upper Deck offers a more casual beach bar experience while the lower level lends itself to a more beach elegant dining experience.

Pepe’s is one of two must-have meals on commercial street. The service is always on point, the food is immaculate, and the beautiful views are just the cherry on top. The gazpacho is next level delicious and the swordfish could not have been cooked to a more perfect temperature. Provincetown has become an annual destination for us, and Pepe’s continues to be the meal that we look forward to the most. Much love for this amazing restaurant!!

We were extremely disappointed in the way that we were treated by the staff. We requested the first floor deck and did not seat anywhere near the deck. We were put in a back room with a loud private party. The hostesses were very rude when we tried to discuss our seating. Waitress seemed to be irritated with us. She clearly was friends with a large party that was seated next to us. It was obvious we were just a hassle for her. She rang out our check at the table and continued to take our credit card and finalized the transaction at our table. Very gauche. Will not return. Too bad because it is a lovely atmosphere.

Our waiter was attentive (Brian) and was at the ready with gluten free meal suggestions. Pepe's was our second choice but after our experience this weekend, we have a new #1.

This restaurant did not seem to care about customers only rushing around, looking important, and getting you out for the next table. For the prices charged, it was VERY disappointing, I probably will not return nor recommend it to friends

The view was spectacular; however, the food was subpar. One would think, “Who could go wrong with ordering seafood right on the ocean?” Well, think again.

Visiting exciting Provincetown. Happened on to this well located restaurant/bar. Ended up spending much of our time there and many of our meals. Always a great experience. Wonderful food and drinks, and the personal service was outstanding. For visitors, we were treated like family. Hope to return soon.

Terrific location, fantastic food, great room, easy to book a reservation. My only qualm (and it's small) is that our waitress disappeared twice during our time there. You shouldn't have to hunt someone down to pay your bill.

Pepe's was amazing!! Wasn't sure what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised. Amazing view of the entire skyline of Ptown on the water, in the harbor. If that wasn't enough, the food was awesome! I got the clambake and the lobster and clams and everything were great. The price could NOT be beat! Go here, don't hesitate!

If you have not been to Pepe's the last 2 season's, its time to return. The new owner have been an amazing job with the menu and the interior. Have been for lunch once and dinner twice this year and will be back. Food is great!

I was here with a friend She had the haddock & said it was delicious I don’t eat seafood so i got the pesto pasta with chicken The chicken was very chewy so I didn’t eat it $25 pasta & chicken
Not the best place to dine if you don’t eat seafood I thought they had steak tips but they didn’t
It’s beautiful inside I’m not sure if I’d go again because of the limited menu but I’m glad my friend was happy

Food was fine. View was excellent although there was no sunset that night. The waitress wasn’t great on asking if we wanted additional drinks or at steering us towards good drinks. She also dropped a knife on my lap.

My wife and I took our relatives from Kansas on a whale watch and I made the lunch reservation at Pepes from the boat. It was an exceptional experience from beginning to end. We loved the space with all the separate rooms. All the staff was friendly. There was no menu on the website so I was a bit concerned that there wouldn’t be vegetarian options. Our server, Elena P quickly put that concern to rest. Everyone raved about the food. The gazpacho was chunky and the best I’ve ever had.

This was my first time eating here; I saw it listed on OpenTable & thought I’d try it. It was very good & the outdoor dining area had a nice ambience with the beach/ocean view. The food was very good. I had the lobster bisque & chicken Milanese. Also, the coconut cake & lime rickie cocktail were good as well!

Food was very good. Server was good. Hostess’ need some serious work. Arrived ten minutes before our reservation. We had requested to be sat outside but under their shaded patio upstairs. We were told we’d have to wait because our table was still occupied, which was not an issue to us. Sat down at the downstairs bar for less than two minutes to be told they had a table for us. It ended up being next to the upstairs bar and in the sun. We asked to be moved to the table that opened up less than 5 minutes after we sat (which we assume was our originally reserved table) to be rudely told no. It honestly felt like they felt we were beneath them and unwanted there when we were polite and dressed appropriately.

I have worked in the restaurant/food industry in a similar setting for a long time and used to be a hostess at one point. I know it’s hard to accommodate everyone’s direct needs but they were not even busy and the attitudes and lack of proper/ polite communication is unacceptable. Not a good look since they are usually the first people that customers come in contact with when coming in.

After that whole ordeal, our food was awesome from beginning to end and the servers were great.
