We had the seafood pizza, tasted good but the shrimp on top was not from the waters, it looked like it canned. I had a lobster which the claws were good the tail was chewy. My husband has the warm lobster roll, it was basically lobster and lettuce kinda of dry. Ice Tea was very good, corn bread was ok.

This is a very good restaurant located right in downtown. Located at 7 Seas Wharf you can eat inside or out by the water and watch the action.

One day this summer, three friends and I were spending the day in Gloucester. Somewhere along the way, someone recommended The Gloucester House to us for lunch – and we were very happy they did! We were greeted warmly at the front desk and then again by our server. The food was very good, and one thing we really liked... More

On family vacation, this restaurant has prime view of harbor which attracted us. Great service even though they were hosting a very large private party outside. Chowder was very good, not too salty. The lobster roll was huge! They get the lobster straight from the family boats daily. Fish & chips was also fresh cod lightly battered and served in... More

Given the high TripAdvisor ratings, we expected more out of this place. It is a cool place with the outside deck and the gigantic covered porch. The hostess just sort of stared at us awkwardly when we first arrived. It was odd. We took our table on the porch. Wait staff was pretentious. Food was way over priced for what... More

We were celebrating my husband's birthday in Boston. Before heading home, he wanted to go to a fishing town and experience fresh lobster. We decided to go to Gloucester for the day and ate lunch here. He got his wish....he had whole boiled lobster that was to die for. I had the lobster roll and it too was yummy. We... More

We have visited the Gloucester House often, mostly for their lobster bakes during summer months, but this time it was a group lunch prior to our whale watch afternoon cruise. The food was excellent, better than ever, and service was top-notch and attentive from start to finish. Their clam chowder has always been outstanding and this time was no different;... More

Friendly staff. Location was perfect, right in front of the boats. The lobster was fresh, too much brown sugar on top. Not many options for sides- corn or slaw. But the standout was the happy, accommodating staff.

My husband and I recently vacationed in Gloucester for two weeks. We frequented many restaurants and found the Gloucester House to have consistently good food and excellent service. We've been there MANY times and have always had great meals. We'll be back for the first week in September, and I so look forward to going there again. The clam chowder... More
