We visited Rockport in September and we wanted to just get some drinks, we went to Gloucester and came across The Topside Grill. The waiter Antoine was amazing, very helpful and knew about all the local beers. The menu look interesting and we ended up ordering some food which was delicious! We had such a good time we will be... More

We stopped in by chance for a pub dinner and amid ever glad we did. Service was excellent, the waiter was very caring. The fish was tender and moist. The best fish and chips I've had bin a long time. Highly recommended. The best part was the dessert. The blueberry cake was awesome. Hubby had an. Excellent carrot cake

Ever want to visit a friendly place where everyone knows your name...well Top Side Grill is it. Great food from fresh lobster and Ipswich claims to old fashioned beef stew, and a Cheers like Pub for after dinner fun with the locals. Enjoy!

My wife and I visited the Topside, based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. The food wasn't bad, just ordinary . I ordered the crab cakes and fish and chips. The crab cakes were tasty, but not the lumped crab as advertised. I was expecting to get a nice fillet and hand-cut fires for the fish and chips. Instead, I got... More

We just spent the weekend in a marina in gloucester. One evening we wanted to find a spot we could pop in to and watch some football, while having a drink. My husband went into several bars before giving me the thumbs up here. The bar is very cozy, the bartenders Antoine and Elizabeth were wonderful. Very friendly and entertaining.... More

Visited twice during our week at North Shore. Agree with Carole3, don't be put off by appearance. First visit we both had the chicken pot pie. Excellent. Cooked with chicken off the bone, and stock from the chicken juice. [Dennis, the owner, told us about the stock, but you can tell by the taste.]. Cottage fries are great. 2nd visit... More

For starters we had the scallops wrapped in bacon, yummy.I had the fish casserole which was packed full of scallops, shrimp and haddock, quite scrumptious. My friend had the seafood sampler which was equally delicious. Even the honey... More
