Wonderful Lobster Roll

I visited The Seaport Grille for a birthday celebration. Lucky us, it was on a Thursday, and they had half price lobster rolls. We began the meal with drinks, which were excellent and an appetizer of fried calamari. The taste was very good, but the texture was chewy, like rubber bands. That means... read more

Friends of ours suggested dinner here since they have been here before, and informed us that the locals eat there. I was not fond of coming here after looking at their menu, but went because they love it. It is totally overrated and overpriced! Steamers were good, but the natural flavor is not there- too much onions and lemons killed... More

On a recent trip to Gloucester my daughter and I decided to have lunch at The Seaport Grill, located on Gloucester Harbor. I had read about the lobster rolls served there, so I had to try one. Not only were they delicious with plenty of lobster, but we were there on a Thursday when the lobster rolls are half price... More

Had dinner in Gloucester and Seaport Grille. It was really really good. The atmosphere was fun and alive. The lobster roll was delicious as was the chowder. Prices were really reasonable. A must if in Gloucester.

Thanks to Trip Advisor comments we tried Seaport Grill and were very happy! Thursday is $10 Lobster Roll special day! And we just happened to be there for lunch. The best we've ever had! Service was excellent- great location! Don't miss this one if you are in Gloucester.

We went for an early Sunday lunch and everything was excellent. Loved the harbor views and fresh air through the open windows. Service was attentive and helpful. They serve a wide range of dishes. My son and I had the classic fish and chips, and we both agreed it was amongst the best fish and chips we have ever eaten.... More

This is a busy restaurant with great food, nice views of the harbor attractive ambiance but definitely loud enough that normal conversation is strained. The introduction was strange because the hostess led us to a tall bar table even though the dining room had plenty of open normal tables. When we finally got situated, it took a long time for...

This restaurant surpassed our expectations. Although it has good reviews, we decided to check it out ourselves. Portions were HUGE and the food was excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We both had leftovers and decided to order a dessert to go as well. Prices reasonable for the area. We will definitively go again.

We stumbled upon the restaurant while driving around at night; next time we're in Cape Ann, we'll make a point to come again. The lobster scampi was delicious and generous, and I was pleasantly surprised by the large lobster tail and claws that came with (for ~$22). My husband said the lobster roll was good but couched in more lettuce... More

This is a very good restaurant and the food is great! However, it is extremely noisy and therefore only rated 4 stars. It was difficult to talk to one another, so we hurried through our meal.
