Upon arrival they did not have the reservation I booked through open table and received confirmation on. The place was not crowded at all so instead of saying they did not have our reservation, they should have just sat us instead of mentioning it.

We booked for brunch at 11:30 (website said brunch was served until noon) and when we arrived, they said it was only lunch. The food was terribly greasy. They just poured so much oil on everything. The service was good but we won’t be back.

Everything from drinks to apps to bread to soup to entrees was amazing! Arlon was the best waiter we have had in years and we go out pretty often! Loved my arugala salad w/ tuna!

I highly recommend Oliver’s Harbor Restaurant and Bar. First time there tonight. Excellent overall experience. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Food was delicious. My wife and I split the arugula salad and we both ordered the cod. Beautiful presentation and absolutely delicious. Prices are very reasonable. Looking forward to going back to Oliver’s.

Everything was wonderful! The food was delicious, the best offering in town. We don’t like fried food so we appreciated the exquisite selection of food and drink menu. Staff was super friendly and more than experienced!

Great restaurant. Pear martini is terrific. I recommend the salmon w/chili sauce. Service was great, too. Support local restaurants. This one is worth it.

The cod is amazing and in general it is a great value. The parking lot has been turned into seating, so it is not as difficult to get into as many places with outdoor seating in Gloucester.

Hate to knock a family-run restaurant, particularly one with menu items that are top notch but, the seventeen-year-old kid at the front desk has no people skills. Did not handle a simple seating request (despite us having a reservation) with any degree of professionalism. Too bad. BUT! The food is excellent.

The food was pretty good but for the price I would’ve liked a larger portion or an extra side. I’d skip the calamari if you’re thinking about getting it, it had no seasoning and the “spicy tomato sauce” was most likely jarred marinara sauce. Beers are cheap which is a definite plus! I think next time I’m in the area I’ll be looking for another lunch spot.

Special homemade linguini with lemon clam sauce was excellent. Brazilian chocolate cake was a disappointment. Wine and espresso were well priced and generous.

Outdoor tables well spaced and it didn’t really feel like a parking lot. Would return.

Because of Covid we ate outside which was very pleasant Tables were spaced ideally and menus very informative for all courses. It was also a very nice evening.
Our waitress was friendly and attentive.
