We love to visit here 1,2,3 times a year when up this way. A real down to earth, friendly bar. Listen to the jukebox, play keno, talk to locals, talk to visitors, shoot pool, watch the boats come in across the street. Friendly barmaids who make good drinks at super reasonable prices.

Yep, this is the bar that served as the inspiration for the hangout for the fishermen in the movie, The Perfect Storm. Dark and dingy inside but was bartended by friendly server who mixed right in with the tourists (we all bought T Shirts-she said that demand has never slacked since the movie came out) and suggested a lemon beer that was really good. We asked if someone would start a fight and she said she would do her best but alas. There are rooms to rent upstairs ($75) she said were clean and close to the bar. We asked about an hourly room rate but was told there was none. Oh well. A must nostalgic stop in Gloucester.

I didn't go into the bar, but it looked very small when I looked into the windows. Also, when I went whale watching the local there told us that it's not where they originally filmed The Perfect Storm. They re-created the bar near the water in Gloucester. We visited there though!!

Local flavor, cold beer and nice people. Nothing fancy. The bartender lady suggested a Lemon Shandy beer it was good and refreshing.

Just stopped in to see if it was the same as in the movie. It wasn't! It wasn't a welcoming place at all, at least on the day I was there.
