This is a place you must visit when in Gloucester. I had a special for the evening, the seafood casserole. Delicious! Nice location across the street from the waterfront. We met some locals who recommended the Topside, and for good reason.
We had late lunch recently and were surprised at how bad the food was given location near wholesale fish market. The clam chowder was thin and tasted like cream with canned clams. Lobster roll for $28 contained end pieces of lobster, packaged fries and small...coleslaw. Salad was good. The worst part is that after eating there, my mother started developing allergic reaction to something (she has no allergies). I've informed the manager via email, but after waiting 3 days of no response, it is only fair that others will be aware of this place. Save your money and go to any other place in Gloucester that takes pride in their food.More

Makylee our server was terrific. She was very friendly and attentive and truly made us feel welcome as soon as we walked through the door. The food was great and the cleanliness and overall wonderfully inviting Holiday decor filled us with cheer! The place had...the old feel of an English pub, there aren't too many left anymore.
My wife and I had the best cod that we've ever had at the Topside Grill, seared and cooked to perfection. The clam chowder was excellent. Our server Shawna did every to make our visit enjoyable. We strongly recommend the Topside Grill.
We saw the feature on Phantom Gourmet but have been cautious about dining out during covid. We called ahead and reserved a table and ended up in a booth with one whole section to ourselves. The restaurant was clean and the staff super friendly and...professional.
Our server Kyle was friendly, courteous, knowledgeable of the menu and specials, offered excellent suggestions and even graciously made substitutions for me. We enjoyed a lovely quiet dinner and the seafood was excellent. I have to add the meatball appetizer is delicious!
A gem in Gloucester for sure!More

They can likely handle the party. The tavern is not large, so accommodations are a bit tight. I highly recommend the Tavern but suggest asking the owner. Call them. Nice folks there. Hope this helps.
