Food and service is ok but with all the good places in the area they need to step up their game

Horizon Chinese Restaurant

Not sure what happened to this place, some of our boneless ribs were juicy and tender and some were dry, not very consistent, makes me wonder if they were someones leftovers that didn't want a doggy bag. The lomein is extremely oily. This use to be my go to place for Chinese but something has changed. Not sure I will go back.

1640 Hart House

We went to the Hart House Saturday night with another couple at 5:15. Waited over an hour in the tavern to be seated. When the waitress took our order, after finally being seated, I told her we wanted separate checks because I had a gift certificate, she said they don't do separate checks. That made the bill akward to figure out when we got it. My friend & I ordered the mussels as an app. Probably 30% of the shells were empty. I ordered the pan seared salmon. It was the smallest piece I've ever gotten in a restaurant and it was $20. The 99 serves a much bigger piece for $13. The Hart house charges to much for the food for what you get and the drinks are overpriced also.

Cape Ann Pizza & Subs

got a large cheese steak, 8.50 for a large - it was all bread- hardly any steak - total waste of money.

Madfish Grille

Living less than a block from Madfish, we always want to give the local spots a try. Maybe we just hit the Madfish on a day they were serving bait fish for food. No changes here. No service. I imagine the bands and late night crowd keep this place going but it is not the putrid food.

Madfish Grille

As most of the reviews are old, it's important to note that the Madfish Grille is now the premier sushi bar on the North Shore. Their talented chefs create some of the most delicious rolled maki and their nigiri and sashimi specialty and combos are world-class. This ain't yo' daddy's Madfish Grille! Jordan Rubin, the young and very talented sushi chef has remade the Madfish and brought in chef Scott Sena to really up the dining room's menu as well. I have rarely been impressed by any restaurant that features waterfront dining (it's usually a crutch), but The Madfish Grille has redefined themselves and in many cases moved ahead of all the other restaurants around. Kudos!

Harbor Lights Pizza

Apparently this business is now closed. Shop is empty and doors locked. It's a shame because Rockport could use a good pizza place.

Worst service ever.
The owner treated us awful because we didn't know that they were cash only. My wife went to get cash & he gave my daughters and I a whole lot of attitude while we waited. When I told him I didn't want to argue with him, he got mad & sarcastically insulted me. When I protested the insult he got in my face & said lets take it outside. I took off.
With the # of great pizza places in Gloucester, I will never go to Maria's again.
The place looked dirty as well. Don't go unless you are looking for a fight.

Giuseppe's Ristorante

Great food, nice decor, friendly staff, and the best barroom pianist in the East, what's not to like?

Topside Grill & Pub

2 years ago we stumbled across the newly renovated The Topside Grill. We were in Gloucester for 4 days and practically lived at this establishment. The atmosphere is great and the food was even better. We've ranted how great it was for the past 2 years. And upon our visit this eveing, it was even better! Dennis and his wonderful staff are absolutely the best! They are the kindest, most attentive, timely individuals you will have "serve" you, ever!
