Attended a meeting here the other night and whilst i didn't eat anything, i did have a couple of beers and enjoyed their on-tap selection. some of the others at the meeting ate and the pizza looked good. the salad looked like it had a lot of iceberg lettuce in it. the service was generally good... read more

What an embarrassment to Gloucester's dining scene! This place should serve only drinks, not food! We ordered take-out for the family, and had to wait for 40 minutes! And the restaurant was not busy at all. People were served drinks at the bar. So many people left from their tables because they had been ignored. When we opened the pizza... More

My wife and I were in Gloucester for the day and just did not feel up to a tourist trade restaurant for lunch. Spotted this place in East Gloucester. It looks like the kind of place the blue collar crowd heads for drafts, wings,and a sandwich. Fortunately for us, that is just what it turned out to be! The Place... More

Steak tips rival anyone's, really good. Wings, burgers and sandwiches are great. Bar staff is really good don't know why people would say otherwise:). A couple of the bar tenders are really hot and friendly. Great place to watch football games.

High prices here for entrees. Stick with the sandwiches that are priced better. Haddock sandwich delicious served with crisp fries done just the way I like. Kind of dirty in the area near bathrooms. Large bar area

Not only rude service but bland food. Everything I have eaten here has been bland. Trust me if you want a something that tastes good don't go here!

Unfortunately the service there is rude and though the pizza is great , it does not create a happy dining experience. It seems like management is the same way ,so I guess the servers' rude behavior is condoned. It is too bad becase a couple of the bartenders are so pleasant and courteous. Many people have stopped going there I... More

We were there this week for the first time. Gloucester is a wonderful place to visit when in MA. and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. This restaurant has a great selection and the food we ordered was very good. The waitress however left a LOT to be desired. She never came over to see if there was... More

We stopped here because it looked like a local restaurant and we like to eat where the "natives" eat. We were disappointed. Although the salad and twin lobsters were great the baked potato was terrible. The service was terrible! We had to ask for the drawn butter, and asked for extra napkins that never showed up. And if you have... More
