About
The Gloucester House restaurant is renowned for its local lobster dishes and for the freshest North Atlantic seafood, prepared to perfection. Having been among the first to popularize fried calamari, our specialties range from award-winning clam chowder to homemade bread and cornbread, from Dottie's bourbon cake to Lily's wine list, and from Sambuca mussels to blackened haddock tacos to a fried fisherman's reuben sandwich. We always cook to order and have gluten free and vegetarian menus available, as well as children's meals. Dine full-service on our outdoor, dockside deck or eat lobsters in-the-rough on our harbor side wharf. Located on historic Seven Seas Wharf, there's something for everyone

We were traveling, tired and hungry. But I cannot recommend the seafood pizza, and the lady at the next table actually sent hers back. Burned crust, ice cold seafood. My husband's salad was decent, but I think you can do better

Just stopped for a quick bowl of soup on a cold damp day! Excellent clam chowder! We will go back the next time we are in town and have a proper lunch or dinner. Cool place though! They only serve beer.
