|Cape Ann Dines Out!|
We went there on Sunday, July 1. We have eaten there before after going on a Whale Watch out of Cape Ann numerous times in past summers. The service was HORRIBLE! We sat for over 35 minutes waiting on our meal, the server, Carol, was rude and acted like we were bothering her and the food was cold. I plan on writing a letter to the restaurant because we never experienced such a horrible time. And get rid of the music!!!Posted by: Sandy Miller at July 2, 2007 09:40 AM
the food is amazing. I live in gloucester and I am willing to go the extra six miles just to go to the greenery. The service is amazingly friendly, speedy, and know how to be proper servers. the kitchen staff seem to be hard working and want to give their customers something pleseant to eat. i would deffinatly keep eating there and the food is good to the point where it is addicting.Posted by: epod at March 6, 2007 03:39 PM
My favorite restaurant in Rockport!!! From their omelets to prime rib dinner to side salad - divine!Posted by: Debbie Helbing at May 15, 2006 10:14 AM
The food was great and so was the scenery. I had fabulous squash soup and fried clams. We had great service.
They used to have some nice extras (drinks served in carafes, humus free for every table) that made the pricey menu worth it. Now I only go there if I don't want to travel. I'm a local and can't justify the high prices for OK food. Service was always great, though. Truly friendly.Posted by: MJ at February 9, 2006 07:24 PM
Once I read a review of The Greenery in the "Unofficial Guide to Cape Ann Dining" and it said, "Take your muffin and run." The homemade baked goods are tasty, but food presentation and quality is shaky. Did they hire a chef or a mess cook? It's sad to see "Proudly Serving Starbuck's Coffee" in the window. Sad.Posted by: Andi at July 17, 2005 01:16 PM
Recently moved to Lanesville from Arizona. Customer service is not something I have found an abundance of in MA, but The Greenery delivered in all areas. Many have recommended this place and I now know why. Amazing atmosphere, incredible staff and delicious food. Can't wait to dine there again.Posted by: Laurie Andria at April 15, 2005 09:12 PM
Was in over the summer and all i can say is wow. we went in once for dinner and the food was excellent. I had the crabcakes and my girlfriend the bouillabase. The waitress was good. she had a bunch of tables but we didnt feel neglected at all.
we went in the following night and had pie and espresso in the cafe. the desserts are so good. will definitely be back and i recommend this place to everyone!Posted by: Keith at February 6, 2005 05:56 PM
come to rockport all the time, had breakfast at the greenery, greasy, and we waited for 50 minutes just a bit much. we didnt have anything special, when it came i didnt get my toast and the breakfast was warm. i also noticed their salad bar is gonzo, maybe jumping the gun a little too soon for that liquor??? maybe a little too soon! from what i am hearing, this may not fly. but anyhow, i dont think we will go back real soon for breakfast, anyhow. i saw a sign that they were voted best coffee shop in rockport, i would question this?? maybe next time we come to town, we might try again. but for now i dont think so.Posted by: JANE at October 24, 2004 09:27 PM
I love Rockport. I visit there once a summer. The past two summers in a row, my boyfirend and I went here for an early dinner. The downstairs was v. busy. However, the hostess could sense we wanted more privacy and she brought us to the less-crowded upstairs dining. Local art work is colorful on the walls, and is accompanied by a forth wall---made of window that reveals a beautiful view of the ocean. Oh, the slad bar and food were good too.Posted by: Laurie Lusas at October 19, 2004 01:55 PM
I retract my other posting. Yes, my credit card reflected a $48 cost for a $40 gift certificate, but it was an extra fee imposed by VISA and NOT the Greenery. Someone from the Greenery called and let me know that VISA often did this, but that the actual, final posting to my credit card would only be $40. Very cordial and caring staff.Posted by: george eastman at October 15, 2004 09:12 AM
I ordered a gift certificate over the phone. There was an eight dollar handling/postage fee. That represented twenty percent of the certificate's face value. Usually restaurants are delighted that someone wants to honor someone else with a gift certificate.Posted by: gceastman at October 13, 2004 08:03 PM

Lousy Service! - Went in for breakfast with my wife. She ordered a bagel w/cream cheese and I ordered a regular breakfast. 35 minutes later it was served! This, after two parties who arrived after us were served first. And the place was not incredibly busy. Food was just fair. My advice is to stay away.Posted by: Paul A. at June 1, 2004 09:15 PM
