The Studio offers a lovely view of the Gloucester harbor, friendly staff and a casual, relaxing atmosphere. It's a bit pricey (salad with chicken and a pop was ~$20) but you can't beat the scenery.

I have been here a number of times. Although I think it may be improving, it's still impossible to get anything in a timely manner, or good service if there are more than 10 people inside. One night our waiter actually told us not to...More

We happened upon The Studio by accident, while looking for somewhere to eat a late lunch. There was plenty of noise and laughter coming from inside. No problem to get a table. Good choice of food, but we’re right by the water, so it’s got...More

Covered bar area was a big help when a sudden rain storm came up. Staff helped us move quickly. As it was the end of the year, entrees were half-price!!! Very good clam chowder.

It happened to be the October full moon that evening. We were able to eat outside, as it was warm. The food was delicious. The surprise when we got our check was that the meal was half price. A very lovely evening. Very friendly staff.

Service was great. Surprisingly we were there for a half price food day. Booyah! Lobster rolls packed with meat. Haddock was the freshest and most melt in your mouth I've ever had. Great view

As usual, great food. They were a little bit slow today. That didn't really matter to us though. Some people got a little upset. What can you do, they were really busy. Paello was great as was the lobster scampi

Great drinks and seafood. Large menu and specials. Sushi is fresh. Awesome place to eat and drink on Rocky Neck. This is a seasonal restaurant. They offer a "HALF PRICE MENU" on all food near the end of season!!! Call ahead!!!

Great water-side dining. Nice view from outside tables. The outside deck was jammed, even for a late lunch. The staff were friendly but attention was spotty. Nice selection of seafood. Delicious soft shelled crab po' boy. Salads were okay but nothing special. I would pass...More

Very disappointing! Wine was very poor quality, the kind that harshly burns in back of your throat. Waiter had said lots of people liked it. I think not! I asked if we could have some bread. "No, we don't serve before the meal." I asked...More

Sorry missed the question. I was there off season and I think September is off season. I would just call and ask. They are very nice.

Not sure about lunch,we had a great dinner on a Wednesday in June and all the entrees were 50% off. We had no idea of this, the server presented the check and told us. We will be back discount or not.
