We had to hit this place on a really off night. There was hardly anyone there, yet the service was slow and the food took forever to come out. When the food finally arrived, it was cold and very greasy. There is a great view...More

We visited when Lobster was not in season, so I guess it's partially our fault. The lobster was a little rubbery and kind of flavorless. The side dishes were only adequate. Tio much money for only decent food. 😢

On the night we were there, The Gloucester House was buzzing with activity. We didn't have much trouble finding a table, though, but subsequently, the service was certainly friendly, but rather slow. Still, because we were not in a rush, we enjoyed our time at...More

We had the Lobster Rangoons, which were yummy and I'd highly recommend them. Their Crab cakes were also good, but the Rangoons were far better. We both had the Haddock Oscar for our main course, but it was a bit heavy, the fish slightly overdone,...More

I used to think the Gloucester House was a tourist trap, like Anthony's Pier Four. True, it hosts a lot of political fundraisers and business events, but the GloHo is definitely a local hangout. The owners, the Linquata family, run a tight ship. The fish...More

The Gloucester House restaurant is renowned for its local lobster dishes and for the freshest North Atlantic seafood, prepared to perfection. Having been among the first to popularize fried calamari, our specialties range from award-winning clam chowder to homemade bread and cornbread, from Dottie's bourbon cake to Lily's wine list, and from Sambuca mussels to blackened haddock tacos to a fried fisherman's reuben sandwich. We always cook to order and have gluten free and vegetarian menus available, as well as children's meals. Dine full-service on our outdoor, dockside deck or eat lobsters in-the-rough on our harbor side wharf. Located on historic Seven Seas Wharf, there's something for everyone here: shop for souvenirs and local art at our General Store gift shop, enjoy a sail on the Schooner Thomas E. Lannon, or see the whales aboard Seven Seas Whale Watch. Whatever your fancy may be, the Linquata family invites you to join us year-round for a true taste of New England.
