We ate here after a day of whale watching and were really impressed with everything about this place. It was a lot bigger on the inside then it looks like from the street, and the atmosphere really feels like a true New England pub by the sea.
The lobster was amazing, along with their fish. We had been all over New England and had tried a lot of great places, but the service at the Topside was the BEST BY FAR! Our waitress, Leanne was one of our favorite that we have ever had - conversational and really knowledgeable about the culture of Gloucester, but also very fun to talk to. She had the "it" that many wait-staff workers don't posses. We have already recommended this place to friends, and we would absolutely go out of our way to eat here again. Cannot say enough about it.
If you are in the area, this is an easy place to find - just off of the water in Gloucester!
Thanks Topside Staff!
