Waitress was great.
Food was okay.
The front receptionist cancelled my reservation after waiting 30 mins while I was standing right outside because she claimed I was supposed to check in with her 30 mins after booking. I explained there were no such instructions when booking the reservation.

Took my boyfriend for his birthday. Thankfully booked a table through Open Table as the wait times were unreasonable. We arrived and were seated right on time. Service was excellent and very quick with such a busy restaurant. We had an appetizer and entree and were still out within 50 minutes. Very fast service, but we never felt rushed.

Awful experience. Server did not know how to open a bottle of wine. If you order a bottle of wine at a restaurant you better send a server that at least knows what they are doing. Server attempted to put cork back in the wine after pouring us some glasses. She had a dirty hand and held the bottle neck to put the cork back in. Gross.
Was not impressed for the price of the meal.

My husband and I stayed in Gloucester for a weekend get-away and dined at the Seaport Grille on Saturday night. We had made a reservation via OpenTable so we were a little disappointed when we arrived and were seated at a high-top table...right next to the noisy kitchen with the door ajar. However, our disappointment soon abated. The service was prompt and excellent. I ordered the pan seared scallops with wild mushroom & parmesan risotto (without the mushroom) - it was absolutely delicious, and I had leftovers to enjoy another meal at home. My husband ordered the fisherman's platter which was mountainous - especially after having ordered the fish fry elsewhere the evening before and getting a very nominal serving. He also had leftovers to enjoy with me at home. We almost never order dessert and we certainly were not very hungry to do so, but when we saw the Mudslide Madness on the menu - rich chocolate kahlua cake frosted with sweet Bailey's buttercream & coated in a chocolate ganache drip, served with whipped cream and coffee ice cream - we couldn't resist. My husband can't eat ice cream and I don't like coffee ice cream, so we ordered it with vanilla ice cream on the side instead. We each were only able to eat a few bites, but it was delicious, and we brought the rest home and enjoyed that another night also! We will definitely return here when we are in the area again!

Always consistently good seafood! One of the best lobster rolls in New England! Big portion sizes so you get great value for what you pay.

The mussels were just a little underdone but they were great the previous time we ate at Seaport. Salad with crab cakes and one with salmon were both delicious. The waitress did try to "warn us" that the mussels came with pasta (linguini). Since we were there recently we questioned this. They are in fact served with linguinca ( sliced sausage ). That said, she was very friendly. Overall it was a nice lunch.

We just love the Seaport! This time we went for my birthday again and we had a 4 o’clock reservation… Sat at our high table that we requested. I don’t remember the waitresses name but she was just so sweet. The food was outstanding! The calamari what is the best I’ve had in such a long time… Actually probably the last time we were at the Seaport!All the tables are spaced out Covid style! I can’t wait to be back!

Fried Clam appetizer, Cooked to a light golden hue. bringing out the sweetness of the clams. Main course, Both of us had the Lobster roll special. Filled substantially, creating a great value. Lightly seasoned to bring out the flavor of the Lobster. Both items we highly recommend.

My husband and I went there for Valentine's Day based on the special menu, and we weren't disappointed. We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation and they seated us right away. Tables were spaced apart and everything was clean. The food was great, our waitress was wonderful and we had a special day. We've been before in the summer and love the location and the food.

Great meal. Totally enjoyed the experience. Felt well distanced and cleaning protocols looked thorough between seatings. Excellent service. Would like Seaport Grille to know we went after receiving their email. Would not have been top of mind without the email. So keep sending info about menus, etc!!!
