I had the Irish Benedict and my husband had hash and eggs. The hash was home made. The potatoes were real. The service was good and friendly and the room was interesting. They had outdoor tables. I wish we had enough time to go back for another breakfast on another day. They had a lot of specials.

I would have given it a 4 star if I didn't have to deal with an unpleasant interaction with the kitchen re our daughter's food allergy question. My daughter has severe egg allergy, which is always challenging at breakfast places. I understand and accept that. When I went to the kitchen to check what she could eat or if the... More

Went with locals for breakfast while visiting Gloucester - and this place is still good for breakfast - 7 years after my first visit. The wait staff is usually very friendly. There are just tables inside and a few on the front patio. The place is open early for breakfast but closes relatively early for lunch ----- 1:30 or 2... More

I love the authentically nautical vibe of this little place on Rocky Neck. It's great for a breakfast stop before exploring the shops and galleries. The outdoor seating deck is also fun. The breakfast is very good, nice basic choices, fresh and well prepared. The service was warm and welcoming!

Was excited to go to sailor Stan's with a friend. Learned it was on rocky neck and was even more excited. Could not believe the disappointment that awaited. The Dining room had about 15% of tables occupied. No chatter. No conversations. Sat ourselves no one offered us a menu or asked if we wanted coffee, said good morning, anything. We... More

My friend and I were so excited to try out sailor stans for the first time and I had heard great things about it. When we walked in, nobody said hello to us. The entire restaurant acted as if we didn't walk in and we were invisible. We sat ourselves and nobody came over to visit, offer coffee, drop off... More

What a cute and colorful place. Couldn't help but take a picture from the outside. The inside was just as cute. Local artists work adorns the walls, with a wacky, cute, colorful atmosphere. You can eat inside or out (under a few umbrellas). Breakfast was tasty; freshly made and hot, coffee was delicious, wait staff (all one of them) was... More

This is a little place out in Rocky Neck, surrounded by pretty views (though not from the restaurant) and galleries. It was around 12:30 or 1:00 and they had sold their last lobster roll. HMMMMMM. The food they did have was pretty unremarkable... the chowder was chunky with clams but did have a strange aftertaste. The waitstaff were quite nice... More

Two dear friends and I revisited Rocky Neck recently, and wanted to go to brunch, and decided on Sailor Stan's. There was a very nice table waiting for us on the small, sunny deck. Our server brought us waters and coffees, and she was pleasant throughout our visit and had a good sense of humor. Both my friends ordered and... More

Stopped in for a late breakfast on a Friday morning, and we loved every minute. Located in the artsy Rocky Neck area, Sailor Stan's offers an experience, not just a meal. On this day, the place was not too crowded, though all the outside seats were take. (There are only a handful of outside seats, and the inside is not... More
