Had lunch after our whale watch and had an amazing lunch. Our server I think his name was Chris forgive me if I'm wrong. I had too much sun. He was amazing. It was my first time there. My friend had been there before. He made great suggestions for me on what I'd enjoy as far as drinks and food... More

We decided to take a day trip to Gloucester for the whale watch and were starving afterwords. What a perfect place to go for lunch. I had the best buffalo chicken sandwich of my life and I'm from buffalo so that's a hell of a lot to say. Our waiter Chris was absolutely awesome. One of the best waiters who... More

Ate here on a Sunday night, not crowded by 8 pm. Very good food, nice and hot, nothing fancy, very good seafood portions. Waitress (Dawn?) was a real pro.

came in to the topside just wanting drinks left full and thoroughly satisfied. craft beer selection was good and Chris' knowledge of the beer selection was impressive. wife had lobster roll she ate every bite. wish we had saved room for desert.

My friends and I had dinner here a week or so ago. Opened TripAdvisor and this popped up as #1 in Gloucester, so we decided to try it. Honestly, from the outside it's fairly non-descript. Menu has lots of choices and prices are reasonable. Staff was friendly and prompt. I recommend the stuffed shrimp!

Just had a great experience. Was planning on just drinks and apps but waiter Chris was fantastic. Answered all sorts of question about the area so we stayed for dinner. His recommendations were spot on!!

This restaurant had such great reviews but I was disappointed. I don't eat seafood but was with family that does. I ordered the cheeseburger. It came plain with no condiments except lettuce and tomato. The burger had a lot of gristle. ..after the second time I stopped eating it. The fries were lukewarm. Just a disappointing experience. ...

Last year my wife and I came to your establishment in gloucester. We were lucky enough to have Sarah E once again and she absolutely took great care of us. We come to Gloucester annually and will be coming to this establishment every time we do so the food was great but the service was one of the best experiences... More
