We loved the very generous pourings and the amazing jukebox selections as well as the folks serving us. No nonsense and we love that attitude, especially when imbibing.

Visited OCT for a dive bar experience and got it. Mainly locals and definitely not a gay spot. I don't think they liked that we played Frank Sinatra on the juke box, but still the bar tender was kind and cordial - definitely the least...More

The place has tons of character, the most dominant trait being objects used on a ship - the carvings / erratic etchings on the wood add more depth to it. We took a day trip from Boston to P town and this was one on...More

The three of us stepped into Old Colony Tap to sit at the bar and watch the Red Sox: we could not have been happier. Old School, simple bar with friendly service. Don't be put-off by the rough exterior. Excellent value for P-Town.

What this bar has is history and it's a favorite of locals. At least, two drinks are required to level out the floor.

This is where I want to go when I die. If there is a God, He drinks here. Any time day or night it's heaven. Best juke box ever. Cool bartenders. Mostly straight, but cool if you're queer.

We came for drinks, and drinks we had. This place is definitely divey, but fun divey, not fear-for-your-life divey. It's got a ton of character. We had vodka sodas that were heavy on the vodka. Nothing fancy. Had fun chatting with other patrons and looking...More
