Cape Ann area baked stuffed lobster?

solargarlic Jun 8, 2009 06:02 AM

Personally, I have enjoyed many fried seafood and steamed lobster meals in that area, but I am at a loss to find a place that serves a great baked stuffed lobster. My aunt and uncle are visiting this weekend, and my uncle is adamant about having his lobster this way. Any suggestions would be great! Thanks!!

      Would The Gloucester House be that bad?

        Thank you both for the help. The Village looks like it has a lot of great reviews, but I like the look of the Gloucester House better...hmmmm...at least they'll have the option of the location, depending where they want to drive. I think they are staying by the Cape Ann Marina.

          Are you picking the place based on the look or the food - because believe me, the reviews are right - you will be much better off at the Village foodwise, regardless of the "look" of the Gloucester House...

          The Village is so far better then the GloHo any day. One is dining the other is a food assembly line.

            Thanks for the help! roejimmy (great name btw) I usually get burned by places that post the few good reviews they get, so I try not to assume that I should believe what I read lol. Depending on the diner, sometimes the look of a place IS the most important thing ;)...for me, eating out near the coast requires dining at a picnic table somewhere with cold local beer!
