While walking on Main St, we stumbled upon this great little restaurant. At first we weren't sure but then we looked at the specials outside and decided to try it. What a great surprise. We were delighted by the warm welcome and the great menu. The food was delicious, amazing taste combination and well presented. Plate size was more than... More

This is a busy place on Main Street Gloucester. Portions are pretty big, especially the seafood stew. The staff was always rushing around as the restaurant was packed. Tables (at least in part of the restaurant) were quite close to each other and that made dinning not very enjoyable. We arrived at around 6:30pm without any reservation luckily the wait... More

Had a great lunch here last year and the popovers appeared in my dreams ever since. Dinner last night satisfied as well! Truly excellent oyster stew and oyster po-boy! I get to NOLA about every other year and eat my weight in all kinds of oysters and last night's rated well! By the way, who greats you at your table... More

Passports is one of my favorite restaurants. You are greeted by a friendly staff who have been there for years,you are seated at a small cozy table and are served with a hot homemade popover, who does that? They specialize in european cuisine with my favorite sister's haddock,almond crusted haddock with scalloped potatoes,yummy.

We were lured to this restaurant by a menu item listed on your site that they no longer carry (please update), but disappointment quickly gave way to delight when the hot popovers arrived, followed by a fantastic swordfish scampi and great lobster roll, ending with a scrumptious chocolate torte. Very reasonable prices, great service, no nonsense ambiance - a great... More

They immediately served us fresh popovers which were light, flaky, and delish (and a surprise) I had a crab cake sandwich which was HUGE and delicious. the seasonings were unique and well done. I had a side of pasta salad.... More

Always wanted to check out this place. I was not disappointed. My chicken salad sandwich was huge and very tasty accompanied with yummy greens salad. My husband had the baked haddock that he adored along with delicious fresh veggies and house salad. We were stuffed The hot fresh popovers served were a nice surprise

Duck, rack of lamb, fish and chips are all delicious! Creme brûlée was disappointing, but everything else was really good! Cozy atmosphere, friendly staff, I would come again.

Friendly staff, served an excellent meal. Highly recommended. Lovely fresh locally caught fish. Battered ice cream was new to me, chocolate sauce, peanuts and cornflakes.

Visited for dinner, every eal was fantastic! The popovers they serve are good enough to make you want to skip dinner, but don't eat too many because the food is amazing. There's a reason this place is #2 on TA. The service was fantastic as well. Would highly recommend.
