“Take It or Leave It”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

Nothing memorable. Average fare with late night music. Maybe we'll try their outdoor seating next summer.

“great, cozy bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2010

excellent place for a drink and to hang out with friends - great bartenders, nice atmosphere, and good selection of wine and beer. didn't try the food, so can't speak to that part of the experience, but definitely one of the places to go after 8 pm in a town where much of downtown closes up at 8-9 pm.

“Cozy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2010

A nice place to have a drink, by yourself or with friends. Good atmosphere, reminds you of an old Irish pub. Good live music! A must stop while in town.

“A hidden treasure!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2009

We were referred here by our hotel and had a great time. It was a nice day so we sat outside on their patio. Their menu was definitely more of a pub style than restaurant with a great selection of burgers. I had the crab burger and it was fantastic. The staff were very friendly, and i great chat with the Australian bartender. We only stayed in Gloucester a couple of days otherwise we would definitely have gone back.

“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2009

If I could give this place a zero rating I would. Ambiance 0. Service 0. Food maybe a 2. We made a reservation. When we arrived, none of the tables were set, even though they should have been expecting us. There was no dedicated waitstaff. The bartender was our server (obviously more focused on the bar in the other room, not on us). We were the only people in the dining room. The rug was soiled. The room dim. They didn't bother to light the candle on the table for us. The bread basket was a few pathetic pieces of stale baquette reheated and sliced IN HALF to make eight pieces. It was more than insulting. This place is obviously a bar not a restaurant. Go to Passports and eat a real meal!
