Full list of impressive specials, large menu, reasonable prices, excellent salad, homemade warm bread, entrees, sides, dessert and coffee.....Warm inviting atmosphere and the waitstaff was wonderful throughout the entire meal. The entire experience was the best we had during our stay.

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

Had a wonderful dinner here one Sunday night. Totally unexpected as the outside was not the prettiest, but the food was excellent. 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

Was recommended by a local. Food was okay - ordered clam steamers, surf & turf, haddock and lobster by the pound. Everyone thought the food was okay but nothing great. The waitress couldn't tell us much about the menu - said she doesn't like or eat seafood.

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
