Good food, friendly service

We stopped here on our way out of Gloucester. I wanted one more seafood meal before I left. I was not disappointed with the food at all! We had fried clams and a haddock sandwich and both were excellent. The clams were fried just right with a nice light batter. And the fish sandwich was very good... read more

Great food and friendly, super-competent servers. We love the fish chowder, and the clam chowder is better than at many of the "name" restaurants. Driving by on 114 and seeing that Lobsta Land is FINALLY open means spring has actually arrived!

All though this restaurant is open all day breakfast is our favorite. The quality is perfect. The prices very good. The staff is the best. Some of our friends would argue that dinner with seafood and pasta dishes are the best. Although it is very good with the bar serving great drinks we find the lobsters and clams a little... More

I felt the quality of the servings and plates was exceptional. It was a bit pricey but better than the competition. Well worth visiting again. There's a great view if seating in the back. Overall, I would recommend.

While the atmosphere is casual and is crowded most of the time, you can't complain about the high quality of their dishes. We usually get seafood dishes with risotto. The swordfish and Salmon were very good. We eat here about 4x a year.

Right at the entrance to the bridge to Gloucester - a good meal but nothing to brag about. The normal fare that you would find in any pub. Chowder was too thick - too pasty with flour.

Lobsta Land is the best all-round seafood restaurant in Cape Ann. Their lobster roll is my ruler for wherever else I am and has never been bested. The fried food is wonderful with a light crust that is bested in Gloucester only by Charlie's Place. The seafood stew and paella are both delicious. The atmosphere in the dining room is... More

I was pleasantly surprised how good the food was for just a roadside restaurant. Fish & Chips are wonderful!! My son had a 2 lb lobster served with all the fixins and it was the best he has ever had!! Would recommend this spot, it was great..

Staying 2 weeks at Wingaersheek we got lunch here at least every other day. As chowdah connoisseurs we all felt it was very good. I am speaking of the milk chowder, because for New Englanders there is no other type worth mentioning. Fried clams were good and on par with anything available in Essex. Great view of the salt marsh... More
