Ok, it was Saturday and the restaurant was very busy but this should not have impacted our experience. I ate on of my worst lobster roll ( overcooked lobster, very dry)and a clam chowder that tasted more like a cream made of cornstarch and flour!...More

If you want seafood, you cannot do better on the North Shore than Captain Carlos. The swordfish piccata was sensational. The Seafood Stew was loaded with all varieties of local shellfish and fish. Of course, hands down the best fried or baked scallops anywhere. Service...More

Had lunch here while visiting Gloucester. Rainy so we sat inside in the patio with water view. Nothing fancy, pretty basic decor, lots of echos making it noisy, but we were there for the food. Lobster bisque was the best we had during our week...More

Fun atmosphere. Good service. It can get really busy and crowded so sometimes you have to be patient. Live music and outside dining always a plus. Buffalo tenders, fried clams and the chicken broccoli ziti are some of our favorites.
