We always have a great time in this terrific pub frequented by locals. The "Not Gary's 5 cheese dip" is a favorite. The burgers are excellent along. They serve an outstanding chili or if you prefer, perfect chicken wings. We enjoy both lunch or dinner here and stop by frequently. Never disappointed in this friendly pub.

Tried this place based on reviews. Bad idea. Staff was very unfriendly barely noticed us. Food was nothing special. Thought about leaving before we ordered wish we would have.

Great beer selection and the rotating menu specials are creative. The burger I had was great, and the sweet potato fries are some of the best I've ever had. Good location as far as parking goes and the staff was very friendly and quick to get what you need.

We went for lunch today and it was ok. My dining companion had the tuna sandwich and I had the burger. Both were fine but nothing extraordinary. The french fries accompanying the sandwiches were standard food service and could have been cooked a bit longer. Service was very good.

We love going here at least every other week for a drink (or two) with our neighbors. Love the pulled pork sandwich. Gary has done a nice job with the place. We like to go with Eric is working as the meal is always the best. Expect it to be crowed as it is small.

Sadly, we'd already eaten dinner when we found this pub. The drinks were generous though and the deserts were to die for. The bartender manager, Kevin, was so very nice, as was the clientele. The pub is beautifully decorated, and spotlessly clean. We wanted to return and have lunch the next day but were unable to. I hear their pulled... More

I live abroad but when I come home to Gloucester this is absolutely my must visit place! Staff is amazing, food is spectacular and super comfy atmosphere! Great beer selection and Not Gary's Dip is a must! The homemade desserts are super!

The juiciest, most flavorful burgers (the black & bleu with bacon is a 5-star sandwich); the most tender-yet-crunchy sweet potato fries, with creamy horseradish sauce; and the tangy, spicy, tomato- and sausage-filled stew...that sausage stew is to die for. The beefy Back Shore burger is topped with a fried egg. The options for buns include whole grain and ciabatta. Service... More
