Restaurant review: Local 186

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. Local 186 ProvincetownThe 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.

For our dinner we opted for The Frenchie an 80z burger topped with onions, smoked gruyere and au jus for dipping $15 and  The El Guapo which comes with fried avocado and chipotle aioli $15. Local 186 Provincetown

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.

  1. Wow, Linus. What an asshole. All that vitriol based on assumptions?


  2. Everything was delicious and prepared with care, from the beef burgers to the home-made millet and sweet potato burger. Thw sides are inventive and yummy. And the house-cut french fries, to die for. Service…we…. friendly, but ill-informed. They’ll work the kinks out.
    Everything Linus, aboves, assumes, without even trying the place, is wrong, wrong, wrong.


  3. Boring. Looks like another ‘wanna-be-posh-NYC-let’s-sell-a-bland-burger-with-greasy-fries-and-charge-$19-for-it’. Not the right thing for Provincetown. And of course, probably one thing (if even that) on the menu for vegetarians like a boring over processed and high sodium veggie burger with goat cheese. Yawn.
