Local 186 is Provincetown’s best restaurant to grab a burger. The new restaurant has now been open for a few months and the staff has firmly hit their stride, providing attentive service in a great setting regardless of where you choose to eat on their street side patio, large front deck or indoors.
Local 186 is open for lunch and dinner 7-days a week. If there is a wait for a table, check out their bar on the first floor and grab a drink. We were lucky on our most recent visit and snagged a table on the patio when we walked up to have dinner on the 4th of July. We were hungry so we started with the restaurant’s Grilled Caesar Salad for $12 and two sides, Fried Artichoke Hearts and Fried Avocado – each $7. The menu consists of ten house burgers including The Old-Fashioned which has bacon and cheddar; The Big-D, a Kobe beef burger with sauteed onions and blue cheese; and The Surf & Turf also with Kobe beef as well as a lump of butter poached lobster. However, if none of the options appeal you are encouraged to make your own burger from a large selection of traditional and not so traditional ingredients.
If you are not a burger lover this is definitely not the place for you, but if the idea of having a grilled burger for lunch or dinner appeals, give Local 186 a try. I also recommend the house beer which is a light lager style brew made especially for the restaurant.
