Gloucester's best

Not only is the service EXCELLENT, the food is great. Their Clam Chowder is absolutely the best. I live in Miami and wish they could have it shipped to me. I have to add, I left my Credit Card at the restaurant and they were HONEST ENOUGH to send it to my home. As a business traveler, great food... read more

There are certain foods I associate with New England and Topside Grill might make my favorite - Fisherman's Platter. Yes, it fried food. Get over it. You can have fried food once in a while. And since I can't get this where I live I come straight here when I'm in the area. I'm happy to see that the place... More

We eat here fairly often. The staff is always personable and efficient. The food is good, honest pub fare. It isn't fancy, cutting edge or elegant; just good, fresh food, wonderful service and a great location.

We decided to have lunch here after we finished our whale watch. The bartender was personable as were the locals sitting at the bar. The Strawberry Avocado with Blueberry Vanilla Goat Cheese Salad was recommended by a woman sitting at the bar – one of the best salads I have eaten in a long time – although couldn’t get the...

We were looking for great seafood in an informal atmosphere. Our search on trip advisor yielded topside. Previous reviews were accurate. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The service was efficient and friendly. I had seafood fri Diablo and asked not to make it too spicy. My request was met and the dish was delicious. My wife had the cod... More

We were hungry after a day at the beach and we had heard of a restaurant in Gloucester rated highly for their seafood. We stopped in and they were unwelcoming to say the least. We had spotted Topside Grill and Pub as we drove by earlier and my daughter thought we should give it a try. The bartender and hostess... More

Monday night and not many people on the street. However, service by Antoine, the bartender, was prompt and very cordial. My wife, who is really very hard to please, ordered the house lasagne and liked it very much. She thought the pasta might be homemade although it wasn't but the sauce which she rated very good was homemade. I had... More

We eat here regularly and are never disappointed. Their specials are particularly delicious. At least one of the owners is always on hand and their waitstaff are attentive and cheerful. Last Friday Jennifer suggested the daily catch, cod, and it was really good!
