Very nice venue Would request a table at the railing over looking the ocean though
Perfect late afternoon lunch. The best Lobster Rolls in all of Gloucester!
Wonderful views and venue. So nice to sit by the sea & enjoy lunch.
My husband and I really enjoyed every second of our night out. The service was impeccable. The food was incredible. The lobster bisque is a must have and the salmon was so amazingly tasty. My husband got the delicious clam chowder and fish and chips. The batter was very well done. Kind of thick and the fish was perfectly cooked. The atmosphere is of course gorgeous. We had a drink at a well laid out socially distanced table extended from the bar while we waited for our table on the deck. They have a number of propane heaters that helped take the edge of the chilliness in the air. Just a great experience. We will be back!
The food and atmosphere, along with the service had us eat breakfast and dinner there throughout our stay. Portions were huge and delicious.
Beautiful hotel and rooftop view! Server was blah!!!!! 3 out of 4 dinners were not good....very disappointed..not going back!! Several people warned me that food ws not great, I should have listened! Very embarrassing as I took out of town guests there!!
wait staff very curtious and service excellent. Even got recommendations for local shops!
My family and I love eating outside on the terrace.
Wonderful atmosphere and great food.
Our server, Cheyenne was fantastic.
She was very pleasant and was very knowledgeable about the food.
This is our second time dining at the Beaufort and hope to return soon!
The weather was perfect for patio seating with a beautiful view of the ocean. Our server was excellent and offered great recommendations. The cocktails were delicious and the lobster roll was overflowing with fresh lobster meat - tail and claws. Well worth the drive from Melrose to Gloucester and can’t wait for my next trip.
Very nice facility inside and out with great views.
Ate on deck.. was cold and windy in front so moved to high top in corner..Better.
Service good and menu looked varied and interesting.
Tried the 36.00 scallop dish that was bland in spite of all the various ingredients.
We have eaten here four times in the last couple of years and have had one good meal and three mediocre ones.
There is another new chef recently but I don't see improvement.
My wife had same reaction to her dish.
Other couple had fish tacos that were OK but veggie burger was not.
Maybe apps and drinks are a better bet at 1606.
Lovely place....best in the area...decor....setting....choice on menu. A lovely time each time we go,.....onl;y thing...we should have moved out table as it was quite windy!!! But, next time we would like to sit near the fire pit!! Great Place!
We went for a weekend luncheon. Cadre is amazing, no question. The deck, when sunny, was very pleasant. The bar inviting. Service was good but not outstanding although the waitress did her best. Forks knives napkins drinks water bread extra sauce all came piecemeal and not in a timely fashion. Sadly the lunch menu has changed to a sort of gastro-pub fare: it seemed as if there were a whole lot of burgers and fare like that. Odd for a place by the sea. My fried clams were excellent but very few for the price, and all sitting on a large serving of fries, which were good when warm, but became cold very quickly. The side of mushrooms and onions were tasty but heavy with oil. Lastly, we didn’t have any desert as they were no standards such as key lime pie but a number of desert creations like a large cookie, or a fruit flavored cheesecake with fancy names. We miss the now defunct smoked fish platter. If I were to go again, I would recommend going for drinks, as the bloody marys on the next table seemed copious, and the wine selection was excellent. Adding in some oysters or fries or sliders with those drinks would make for a festive lazy afternoon.
Food was great, calamari was delicious!! Our waiter was very friendly. All in all nice experience
Food is great! Beautiful view of Gloucester harbor! Overall an exceptional experience and great place to celebrate a special occasion!
An excellent location with a stunning view. Property is beautiful. Very nice bar program, menu of seafood and steaks. Very engaging and helpful staff. We will be back son.
At 4 o'clock today I called to say that we had a 6:15 reservation. We were celebrating our friends 58th Anniversary. I asked if it was possible if a heat lamp could be placed by our outside table since our friends were elderly. I was ASSURED that it would be placed there. Well, although there were several lit at other tables, not one near ours. I asked the waiter...he said no problem. We had drinks, apps as we watched other guests get the lamps moved by their table. Entrees arrived and still NO HEAT LAMP!!! after several more reminders, I asked to Speak to a Manager.
Finally, a Manager arrived and we told him our dilemma. Miraculously, a Heat Lamp was placed by our table...we were well into our entree by then. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!
Went there to celebrate my sons prewedding for a mother son lunch.
Weather was very foggy but still a great location food and drinks were delicious and made for a memorable lunch
Beautiful setting on the beach. Great views of working boats. A very special location. Food is interesting and well-prepared. There are very few locations as nice on the North Shore.
But boy, you pay for it 😆
Everything was delicious .the service was excellent everyone was very friendly and helpful. We were outside on the deck and the view was beautiful. Definitely recommend for a great night out with friends .
Absolutely perfect! The food, the wine, the setting, the service!
Perfect service, fantastic food!
The food was very good and the atmosphere was wonderful, beautiful sunset
Excellent and beautiful
We go to the 1606 whenever we can
Location can’t be beat. Food is mediocre and the menu hasn’t changed. Need a better chef for a location like that.
Delightful evening on the patio with good friends!
Awesome views, food, vibe and service!
View is spectacular, service was impeccable, and food was delicious. Great day
We sat outdoor around a delightful Table covered because of a little rain. All of our meals were outstanding. My first time having fish and chips. It was one of the best I’ve eaten. Paul W
Fried haddock plate was uninspiring and overpriced. The batter was tasteless, the French fries were cold and tough, and the coleslaw was not fresh. The other dish we tried was quite good: baked haddock with squash, broccoli rabe, and a very flavorful sauce. This was our first time and we were disappointed by the atmosphere. It felt very corporate, not warm or anything special. Would not revisit.
It was wonderful! Beautiful location, excellent food and exceptional service. Want to go back again!!
The view is worth everything! We both had fried seafood which was crispy and fresh. My friend did think the fried clams were a bit too crispy . Our waitress seemed to forget about us for a bit and forgot our app BUT we were fine with it as we just wanted to sit outside by the water and chill. The drinks were yummy and weather perfect! The location is a bit weird, the surrounding area is not great, but the hotel and restaurant are beautiful and make you feel like you are not in Gloucester anymore...
Great view. Service and value definitely not. Our very inexperienced waitress was no where to be found.lobster roll was so underwhelming for the price. Husbands cole slaw was sour. $130 for lunch.
The valet attendants were above and beyond awesome. They got a wheelchair for my 90 yr old mother and helped us tremendously. Our server was awesome, too. I gave the food 4 stars because the calamari was a little dry and usually it is amazing. My caprese salad was DELICIOUS! Thank you everyone!
Fantastic view from the deck, fast service, food choices were adequate and abundant.
Staff went above and beyond to ensure social distancing and cleanliness were being followed.
Beautiful view, great breakfast and really exceptional staff! Enjoyed our girls day out at Talise! We will be back to try dinner.
The service was exceptional . We had a lovely seat overlooking the ocean.
One of our favorite places! We absolutely love the food - everything from the clam chowder to the turkey club to the blue cheese burger to the pork chop with gruyere scalloped potatoes.. superb. We even had the skillet cookie for dessert with our espresso martinis. Highly recommend this place - resort style outdoor dining overlooking the private hotel beach with heaters to keep the fall nights cozy.
Very attentive staff
Superb food and great wine list
