It took a few years for the Seaport Grille to hit its stride but Sheri and her staff have helped this become one of my favorite local spots.

We spent a week in Gloucester and found this restaurant on our last night in town. We were so disappointed we didn't find it on our first night because we want to eat here again. Comfortable ambiance, good food, nice view, decent prices, great time. If we are in Gloucester again, we will visit the Seaport Grille.

You don't want to miss this. I ordered it for myself and it was gone in about 4 minutes. Everyone at the table gobbled it up. I mean everyone. I had to order another one for dinner. Look, I love seafood and eaten at literally hundreds of them up and down the East Coast. If I'm within 60 miles of... More

We had dinner at the Seaport Grille, based upon a recommendation from the owner of the B&B where we were staying in Rockport, MA. The food and service were both fantastic. We ordered a Fisherman's Platter and shared it between my wife and I. It was the largest plate of seafood I have ever seen ! We could barely finish... More

There are many types of five-star ratings. Some might be super-swanky, elegant places for special occasions. Others may not have the same glamorous ambience, but are equally impressive in their own way. That's the case with Seaport Grille. You don't need to put on your white tie or opera gloves here. Come casual (not sloppy, now!) and you'll have good... More

The open-air dining experience on the covered deck is SO perfect in the summer. We love to come here for a casual early dinner to enjoy water views and warm sea breezes with cold beer and steamed mussels. The service is consistently great. Private parking is a bonus. Only down side- it can get very busy and loud in peak... More

I went here with a couple of our clients for lunch and it was fantastic. The fish was crisp and fluffy throughout each bite and it was fresh. Highly recommend if you like fresh seafood and good service
