Been here many times, love the fishing town location. This was our first stop this year and were sad to see the changes. One would think being a brewery on the waterfront in a seaside village would have great seafood and beer, but the menu changes were shocking. No fried oysters, no fried whole belly clams (only strips), no fried scallops??? Odd. Calamari and haddock instead? Had the fish and chips and haddock was fresh but they use the heavier batter which I am not a fan of. The beer choices pretty much the same over the years, average at best. Their pumpkin beers is what they are known for and were not available this time of year I guess. Service was good and fries are awesome. We also noticed no longer was there t-shirts/sweatshirts or glassware available in showcase. We both had the feeling the business kinda slipping. Probably would try again, but with no change to menu, the beer surely isn't good enough as compared to most New England craft breweries to draw us back.

Had a walk on the beach near gloucester
With high windgusts at very low temperature...
We felt hungry, And if you want great food, this is the place to get it.
The portions of served food is enormous
And still very tastefull.
It would be a waste to leave Some on your
Plate...
Quality /price is fine...
Come back again , whenever i’ll be in the neighbourhood...

This place is beautiful -- right on the water. While you sip on the great beer you can watch the boats and birds. There were common eiders right outside on the water. The food was hot and fresh. Great fish!
