“Gloucester mussels?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

How is it possible that a restaurant in the fishing village of Gloucester
Serve mussels so small and tasteless.I understand that this is a micro-
Brewery,but the obvious lack of attention to the food quality is suprising.
When you can't get the mussels right in Gloucester,you should not be
Serving any seafood.the beer was good and the help satisfactory.

“Okay for a beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

It is right in town, picnic table seating,very noisy. The beer was just OK. The fish tacos were good, not great. The fish and chips were good. Probably wouldn't go back but it was fine.

“Where to go in Gloucester”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Whenever we visit family in Gloucester, we have to have a meal & brew at Cape Ann Brewing Company. The burgers are fantastic and the beers are all first rate. Most of us had cheese burgers with one vegi-burger (not my cup of tea) which I was told was very good. We all had the Bavarian wheat beers. Love siting outside and looking at the water. Have read that the service is sometimes slow but ours was just right.

“Good Beer, Friendly Bartender, Bar Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Yummy beer! Neat atmosphere....big bar. Limited outdoor seating. We ended up eating at the bar which turned out fine..but don't count on the outdoor seating...few tables out there. Typical average bar food.

“Perfect for quick dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Travelling alone, I was looking for a quick stop for beverage and local seafood. I was there at 6pm. Service was fast but not hurried. The bartended was attentive, experienced and pleasant.
