We stopped here for dinner after a very long traffic filled ride from outside Philadelphia. We were visiting Boston area colleges. The restaurant has fabulous lobster bisque soup. We enjoyed the food and the friendly service. Quaint town. Who doesn't love a seafood restaurant with an enormous inflated crab perched on top of the roof?!

I love the Sole Proprietor!! It is a higher end restaurant but the food is amazing. They have many seating area's so there is a place for everyone. The bar is always buzzing but there are rooms that offer a quieter experience also.

Although it is pricey it is well worth it. The seafood is fresh. This is one of the few places I trust the raw bar. Have been many times and only had one off meal where the fish was burnt a little. Otherwise, it has always been well prepared. You can't go wrong here.

Put waiter team was very attentive but not annoying. The food was immpecable.I had Alaskan king crab legs, which they will either do all the work opening or slice them to make it easier or nothing at all if you choose. They were expensive but have you ever watched deadliest catch. If you have you understand why. The rest of... More

Sole seems to have a strangle hold on Worcester seafood. lack of competition may be what has caused them to get lazy? The menu is huge--and the result is that everything tastes mediocre. Fried stuff is oily and nothing seems all that fresh with the exception of a good raw bar. The bar in general is your best bet--stick with... More

I've been going to this restaurant for years and the quality has always been consistent... Not anymore. We went here for a bite to eat after shopping because we love seafood and Sole Proprietor has a great selection. The dining rooms are nicely decorated here and the tables all have white tablecloths which is a nice touch. You feel like... More

I was there for lobster week and the meal was awesome! My niece, her mother and a friend were visiting from Florida and they wanted a great seafood experience. They loved it!

We just arrived in New England and really wanted lobster. We were a party of four and, when we saw the parking lot, were unsure we could get in. But, the place is larger than it looks and we were seated immediately. We ordered the Baked Seafood Platter, Lobster Tail Florentine, and Whole Lobster. In addition, we sampled the local... More
