A lovely, quaint, surprise in Glouster.

Passports was a lovely, quaint, surprise in Gloucester. It is a great date night spot. We love the special, a steak with lobster sauce. The sauce was amazing with large chunks of lobster and a lovely, slightly rich, sauce. The lobster was so-so, though. Not something I would order again. And... read more

Given all the good reviews we tried Passports and were absolutely pleased with it. The popovers indeed were a hit instead of the usual bread, but we were even more impressed by the quality and creativity of the dishes we had. The tuna on lo mein noodles with vegetables was fantastic and so was the "best of both worlds". Great... More

Downtown dining atmosphere for a couple / group. The food is usually very good (LOVE the popovers) and it is also well priced (not too expensive). The location makes it easy to walk Main Street and stop in any of the myriad of stores or bars along the way. The atmosphere is perfect for a date (not the place to... More

Fun creative fare, extensive beer and wine list, cool art on display and the two veteran servers, sally and Johnny, are a floor show unto themselves

It had been several years since I had been to Passports. My first and only visit all those years ago left me not wanting to go back. Primarily because it did not live upto my expectations. When I found out I was going there last weekend for a family birthday dinner, I was not looking forward to it. Well, I... More

The food is always fresh and flavorful. The servers are professional and attentive. Try the Adriatic Seafood Stew; it's healthy and light. They also have the best fish tacos in Gloucester.

Everyone gets a piping hot popover instead of bread. The portions are substantial and all menu items are hearty.

The food was very tasty. Asian ribs, duck confit, beef wellington entree, all delicious. Our server was absent at best, at worst he was a very rude and short character who clearly did not want to offer our table adequate service (for instance, we watched multiple couples come in after us and leave well before us who had the same...

Their Oyster Stew just keeps calling my name! Popover and glass of wine. Any of the salads. But the stew keeps us coming back.
