Suddenly, you feel like you’re in a car wash!

Recorded April 7, 2016, this was a pretty tame storm at Fanizzi’s by the Sea. It was tame enough that we had the bay front dining room open and allowed lunch patrons to have window seats. We do get storms that are far worse than this. When that happens, we do not let diners sit in the bay room because high tide comes directly under the dining room – in addition to pounding the windows, far worse than this. We have to pull the hurricane shutters down during those big storms. Check out more storm photos.

Join us at Fanizzi’s by the Sea for fabulous food and our bay front, beach front, and yes WATER front dining in Provincetown on Cape Cod bay for lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch, early birds, drinks at the bar, and Friday Fish Fry.

The Whales are Back

It’s official – the critically endangered North Atlantic Right Whales are back in
Cape Cod Bay and Provincetown, according to Center for Coastal Studies, quoted in the Boston Globe!

Center for Coastal Studies, located right here in Provincetown, right whalereports that there are only 526 North Atlantic Right Whales left in the world. We are so very lucky that they come to and through Provincetown each year in late spring. In some years, we’ve had more than the world’s population swimming in our bay.

One of the top questions we get here at Fanizzi’s is:  “Do you see whales at your restaurant?”

YES, and yes we’ve seen the Right Whales.

Of course, no one can guarantee what time they’ll be visible or when, but come have a seat in our restaurant or bar and enjoy a meal or drink while you scan the horizon for these majestic creatures. They are a big part of what make Provincetown such a wonderful place. Don’t miss seeing the Right Whales!
