A mid day on a beautiful fall Sunday with a walk around Rockport MA and then Gloucester MA. We decided to end the day at a local restaurant advertising lobster for 15.99. The outside was invitingly clean and neat and as we walked in we were greeted by a very pleasant smile. Being mid day the place was busy but... More

Ate dinner here after whale watch adventure. Halibut special was enjoyed by all three adults in our party. Kids had pasta and sauce which they inhaled. Chocolate cake and carrot cake for dessert, mm mm good. Friendly service, immediate seating on a Saturday at 6pm. Second time I've eaten here and this time was better, mostly because the Halibut was... More

I stopped in Topside pub for a couple of Sam Adams Octoberfest and ended up having lunch. The seafood here is top notch. Clam chowder is awesome as is the Lobster bisque.

The clam chowder and Haddock Fish & Chips were both very good and fresh. The atmosphere is pleasant with a slight view of the harbor. I saw the pub area and it seemed very nice as well. A wonderful waitress told us about the Wicked Tuna boats and personalities of the crews. A real nice lunch here. Street parking right... More

We spend about seven days in Gloucester every September and are always looking for new places to eat, but I had to go to an old friend for “Crabby Monday.” First I have to say, I was brought up in Boston by a Dad whose family is from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, so I know my way around lobster...

Cuisine in Gloucester...not. old, out of date black vinyl chairs and booths. Cold potato, overcooked shrimp and their crab stuffing was 99% bread. Go elsewhere.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Although it was a little noisy the atmosphere was pleasant. The stuffed clams and shrimp cocktail were small in size they were excellent in taste and the clams were served piping hot. We had two specials, lasagne and chicken/eggplant parm. Both were served hot, portions were large and they were delicious. We would come back... More

Just had dinner there. Started off with a nice glass of warm water followed by having to ask for bread after about fifteen minutes. Appetizer portion was tiny and entrees were just as small all overpriced and undersized. There are many seafood places in the area, Do Not choose this one.

My husband and I stopped at the Topside Grill today for a late lunch and really enjoyed it. It isn't fancy but the food was really fresh and served piping hot. We had Julia for our server and she was terrific! My husband had a couple of their special Margaritas and we shared a shrimp cocktail, only 3 shrimp but... More
