Awesome bar service for a first time experience!

A couple friends, my girlfriend and I decided to go here for the first time after turning 21 and the service was great! We caught them on their last day open for the season and can't wait until it reopens. Our bartenders were great and very sociable .

My husband and I went into Topside for lunch this week. We had never been in there before. It was a little stormy out so we were the only ones in there. Our waitress Lindsey was such a little sweetie. We had a great time chatting with her and she gave us great recommendations for food. My husband wanted a... More

Stopped by with my family for brunch on Sunday after my daughter ran in the race in gloucester. We were all starving and freezing. Our waitress Lindsay was super accommodating and we had an amazing time (we tend to be rowdy ) not only the service but the food was awesome too. The drinks ( drunken pumpkins are the way... More

Came with a few of my colleagues on Wednesday afternoon. It was very quiet so we didn't know what to expect but the service and food were both wonderful. Lindsey was very sweet and attentive. I had the haddock New Brunswick sandwich which was out of this world....my other coworkers got other fish dishes and seemed to enjoy them all.... More

Stopped into the pub side of this restaurant after a long afternoon of shopping with my mom. The interior was very cozy and we decided to sit at the bar. Dinner was simply delicious. My butternut squash ravioli was wonderful and my mother's Haddock New Brunswick was, in her words, the best haddock dinner she had ever had. And yes,... More

My husband and I ate lunch on a rainy / snowy Sunday afternoon. The restaurant wasn't crowded and we were seated immediately. The clam chowder was very good. I had the lobster role (with small amount of lettuce and celery) in a toasted role. My husband had fish and baked potato. He said it was very good. We did not... More

I just took my first trip to Gloucester with a friend and after shopping on Main Street we were ready for lunch. There was a sandwich board sign on the corner of Rogers & Main advertising their "Crabby Tuesday" menu with an arrow pointing down Rogers heading towards the water. We took the bait and were so glad we did.... More
