After a couple of hours walking around Gloucester it was nice to relax here with a cold beer and take in the noise and smells of the fishing boats. I enjoyed the BBQ brisket entree with beans and a salad. Good sized portion.

Great beers conveniently located in the heart of Gloucester. Lobster cages and fishing boats only add to the “authentic” Gloucester scene.

Our first experience of clam chowder! Super friendly staff and if we hadn't been driving to our destination would have loved to stay sample the local beers, especially coming from Belgium! Original and creative restaurant and nice friendly atmosphere.

Had lunch with a friend recently. I expected good beer and it was but the food was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed my fish tacos very much, buddy had chowder and burger. All excellent. Service was good as well. I will come back more frequently!

Awesome central location in Gloucester. The food we had was quite good. Tried the pretzel and had the tuna salad. Parking available on the street outside. The beer is quite good also.

Check the web site. Many breweries are closed on Mondays. I just don't know.

sorry, no...Unless it's a service pet Gloucester has not gotten on board with being pet friendly in restaurants. You can tie up your dog right next to the deck however.
