History of Fanizzi’s Restaurant Location

As those who dine with us know, our bay front dining room at Fanizzi’s actually sits OVER the bay during high tide. Water comes fully under our dining room. Some of renovations we had to recently under take were to shore up the pilings that hold our dining room securely over the water.

TheYearRounder’s Guide to Provincetown wrote a terrific article on the history of the property Fanizzi’s by the Sea sits upon – 539 Commercial Street. According to their article:

537-539 Commercial Street, where Fanizzi’s restaurant and parking area sit today, was the location of a fishing empire known as Whorf’s Wharf, built by Thomas Rider Whorf, Jr. in 1850, and later run by his son, Phillip A. Whorf.
These Whorfs shared an ancestor, generations apart, with the artists John, Carol and Nancy Whorf, though they were not direct descendants.

At one time this busy pier stretched 400 feet into the harbor, serving its own fleet of 16 boats engaged in various types of fishing, while shipping some of the catch to markets as far away as Chicago. 130 men were employed in the operation.

There was a windmill on the property, presumably part of a saltworks where seawater was pumped to a system of trays and troughs. The water was evaporated to produce the salt used in drying and preserving much of the fish caught by Whorf’s fleet.

This 1890s photo shows busy Whorf’s Wharf, employing some 130 fishermen, salt
workers, sailmakers and others in serving and operating 16 boats. The old
sail loft very likely became Fanizzi’s Restaurant by the Sea, as we know it today.

The wharf also had its own sail loft for fabricating and repairing the many sails for its sizable fleet, and Fanizzi’s building is almost certainly that old sail loft, still sitting on pilings at the edge of the beach.
The recent repairs, including new pilings installed beneath the restaurant, should ensure many more years of life for this historic building dating back to the height of Provincetown’s great whaling and fishing era, often called the Golden Age of Sail.

Be sure to read the entire article at TheYearRounder’s Guide to Provincetown.
