Had to stop for a beer here after touring the Fort area. The bartender was nice and quick. The beer was cold and the other patrons were friendly. Full of character. Glad we stopped.

Of course I had to visit The Crow's Nest while I was in Gloucester! This is a regular, neighborhood type bar and the kind I like. I'm sure the regulars get tired of the tourists but everyone was polite to us.

This is no nonsense working man's bar. The staff and the customers are welcoming and colorful. This is the bar from the Perfect Storm (not the one that they filmed). It is a piece of Americana that is best enjoyed with a pint.

Stop here every time we visit Gloucester. Always a fun place with a great atmosphere. They make their mixed drinks LARGE and STRONG, but delightful. Nice Barmaids, good music on the jukebox, Keno, friendly patrons, and some colorful locals. You can always start a conversation,...More
