    Another vote for Passports, in Gloucester. Great food (ah, popovers) and nice atmosphere.

    Avoid the Ocean View Inn in Gloucester. Lovely little property, WAAAYYY overpriced mediocre food. I was married there a few years ago and loved it, but it's gotten steadily pricier and, uh..mediocre-er.

      Head ten minutes down the road to Gloucester and try Duckworth Bistro or Franklin Cafe for upscale, Passports for lovely mid-range (try the baked haddock), or Causeway for basic pasta and seafood.

        I would suggest the Emerson Inn. It is an old inn very close to the water. It has a nice dining room with beautiful views of the ocean. The food is good and the service is excellent. I have held several company functions there and always been satisfied.

          Breakfast - Flav's Red Skiff (downtown)
          Lunch - The Greenery - (downtown) sit in back room - great view
          Dinner - Yankee Clipper - good food - great Ocean View
