Wonderful little gem of a restaurant in Gloucester Mass. Fine dining reasonably priced and great service. Menu changes often and the Chef is very creative with their dishes, nice selection of wine and cocktails. Don't miss this one!

We have been coming to Duckworth for over five years and the quality of food has been persistently fantastic. Must try their Lobster Risotto and their Seared Duck Breast. For mushroom lovers, their mushroom soup is exquisitely balanced.

My husband and I had a lovely anniversary dinner here. For a Wednesday night the place was alive and filled with happy dinners. It is not large and has a real intimate home town feel. The food was delicious and used local seasonal ingredients. The...More

My husband and I dined here recently. Small tables, close together, as you would expect for a bistro. The temperature crept up in the restaurant as the evening progressed, so it was a little uncomfortable by the end of our meal. Fortunately the tap water...More
