Both the food and service were excellent. I had the scallops almandine and loved it. We were seated on the patio. Our table was right next to the very busy road. A table further from the road would have been better for me as I found the traffic distracting.

We drove into Gloucester and per tripadvisor choose this place to eat lunch. The service was a slow even though it was not busy when we walked in. We had the Buffalo shrimp which were really good, should have just stuck with a couple ordered of those. Husband has a burger which was overcooked/well done when he advised he wanted... More

We were in Gloucester looking for a lobster dinner. We had bacon wrapped scallops, the shrimp pizza, lobster bisque to share for appetizers and then we each had the steamed lobster special. ($15.99 for the lobster and french fries) The lobster bisque was disappointing, but everything else was top notch. We would be happy to return! The entire dinner cost... More

Food and service were excellent. The clam chowder was just thick enough and had a great flavor. The lobster roll had nice big chunks of meat. We would definitely eat there again.

Ok, service was good (not very crowded at 8 pm on a Wed night). Food was ok. My husband thought the lobster special was priced reasonably at $16.99 (one lobster and some Cole slaw). My fish was breaded and put atop potatoes, so not that healthy. Try not to sit in a both with your back to someone in the... More

We stopped in for lunch after a Cape Ann whale watching tour. We were immediately seated and our drink orders were taken. Our food was delivered quickly. I ordered the crab roll and it was fresh, creamy, and delicious on a warm, toasted bun! My husband ordered the fish and chips. The fish was nugget style, but it was fresh... More

We went to eat at the Topside Grille in the hopes of finding a nice place for steaks but unfortunately they only had two types of steak on menu, little disappointing. My fiancé enjoyed her scallops over linguine. Both meals were hearty and pretty good, but not worthy of 5 stars. Atmosphere was more like a pub, I was just... More

Had a fabulous Dinner at Topside Grill in Gloucester. Chris, our waiter was very knowledgeable about the portions, taste and best deals for the buck. He was also attentive at any moment. Id recommend this place over any place up there on the strip. Its small but a family welcomed atmosphere. Prices are very fair as well.
