Then do as we did, go out to dinner before the show. We decided to visit the Seaport Grill in Gloucester... read 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

We go to the Seaport Grille all year round because we live local. I would highly recommend it! The food is always good and i enjoy the atmosphere. We like the high tops around the bar. The porch in the summer is great with a pretty good view. I dont think you will be disappointed with this restaurant!

Fresh and local clams, mussels, haddock, lobster. "Lobster pie" (it's an entree, not a desert) was amazing! Fun atmosphere. Open in winter. Gluten-free menu and knowledgable wait staff.

This is a great place for fun and eats and drinks. Have been many times an enjoyed each time. I just wish you could order a smaller portion of some of their entrees. They are huge - and when on vacation, there is really no sense is "a doggy bag" back at the hotel. Food is fresh service is great.

Perhaps the best fish & chips & cole slaw I've eaten anywhere. A little pricey. Nice views. My wife did not like the beet salad at all.

The restaurant location is on the water and adjacent to tour and whale watch vendors. We stopped in for lunch and split the fried haddock plate. Or to be more accurate, we attempted to split the fried haddock plate. The portion we received was enormous with more than enough fish to satisfy our craving. I am usually hesitant to order... More
