We stopped here after a whale watch in Gloucester for lunch. The place is very classic in a 1950s-1960s family restaurant sort of way. Clean, well kept; good service.
The clam chowder was very good (rich without being too thick and packed with clams); our friends had the shrimp cocktail, which was also good. My husband and I split an appetizer of the fried clams, since Essex is the birthplace of said dish. I am not a huge fried clam fan but these were so light and tender I would order them again. My haddock was very good; husband's burger was huge and done as requested for a change...friend's steamed clams were delicious. Her husband said he wished he had gotten the burger, as the swordfish kebabs were a tad dry for him, but all in all, a very pleasant lunch...and the coconut cream pie was a great ending.
