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

We were part of a bus trip and were given the opportunity to go to the Glouster House. First, it was a yucky rainy day...made so much better by our dinner. A group of 40 all in one room with room for all of us...More

On a weekday evening, since all the booths by the windows were taken we were seated at a round table at the rear of the dining area back by the end wall. The daylight view is surely better. The wait staff were prompt and businesslike,...More

My husband and I went here for dinner after a neighboring whale watch tour. The food was good, and served quickly, but that's all I can say for it. It was very traditional, but not very original. The cole slaw was clearly a preshredded cabbage...More

Just driving around on our way back home and stop here. This place is very nice and tucked away. If I’m ever in Gloucester again I will come here. Definitely recommend !!

Large selection of fresh and well prepared seafood . Service was excellent. They have free parking behind the paid city lot so watch for the separate entrance

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.
