We were delighted with our meal and the pleasant atmosphere during our recent visit. Great place for a weekend dinner date. We had very attentive service by a warm and friendly staff. We'll return soon.

This place has been around for a few short years. When it first opened it was absolutely wonderful.. Food was fresh, menu imaginative, drinks top rate. Service at times was very good, more often not so good. Being minutes walk from the beautiful neighborhoods in the Gloucester Courthouse was nice, easy for locals. For whatever reason the quality of the... More

I enjoyed a late lunch at Jessica's. The options made it a tough choice but i opted for the oyster stew and corned beef on pumpernickel. The soup was not a typical oyster stew (very creamy with potatoes) and very good. The sandwich was sumptuous, messy and awesome. The kind of sandwich that requires a knife and fork. Gloucester seems... More

The once divine chicken salad is now "hit or miss," depending upon who makes it and I'm not the only one to notice - at least 2 co-workers have said the same and now order from Kelsick Gardens instead of JOM. The last time I had it was my last - runny with too much Mayo; huge chunks of chicken... More

I'm so sorry to post a negative review, but it just can't be avoided. My husband and I decided to try out Jessica's on Main last Saturday evening (8-10-13) with a group of 6 other friends. We'd never been before, but read some reviews. It was so bad, that it almost became a comedy! Our waiter was very unpleasant. He... More

I ate here with geocaching friends at a planned meet and greet. It turned out that Gloucester's Renaissance Faire occured today as well. At full attendance we had 19 or 20 adults and four teens in the group. There were two servers - who may have had to cover the other lunchers as well. I arrived about 12:30 and didn't... More

The friendly staff, the reasonable prices and of course the awsome onion rings will guarantee our return next time we take US 17. My husband had the rock fish and I had a small Greek sald with a generous piece of blackened Salmon, craft beer and were totally impressed.

Very nice little local restaurant and most of the food we have gotten in the past was good along with a selection of micro brews. After a couple of times eating there though, we began to notice that all of the seafood came with the same batter. This wouldn't be bad, but the batter really seems to overwhelm the seafood... More

Ate lunch there. The food was very good, but lunch was spoiled by the fact that my husband had to order three different items from the menu before he found something that they actually had. In their defense, however, I will have to say that we were having a late lunch around 1:15 p.m. The waitress was very friendly but... More

Lunch on a busy day here was a little hectic. It was daffodil festival, after all. The service was a little sloppy and out of control. The food was good, that atmosphere was interesting, and overall we had a nice lunch. Probably a lot different on a normal Gloucester day
