Filet Mignon

Shared the seafood combo. Had onion rings instead of fries. Everything was battered lightly. Crispy and fresh. More than enough on platter size plate. Loved every bite! Waitress was very friendly and service was quick.

Native Whole Belly Clams

Are you kidding me? How did I not know about this place sooner. I had the luncheon clam roll and my dining partner had the fish and chips. Both were excellent and a great value. Our server was attentive without being intrusive. All and all a wonderful experience.

Fish & Chips

We just came from SWG for a family/friends dinner! We all had something and everything was wonderful! Complete with ice cream for the kids. Our server was absolutely the best! She went above and beyond for us (we brought our 4 month old). She made sure we had everything we needed. Most attentive server! Can't wait to go back!

Pretty good place overall. Service was solid. Food was pretty good. I do suggest they add more to their dessert menu as it's very limited and not great. I give this restaurant a 4/5.

Fried Haddock Sandwich

Salt Water Grille is the place to visit in the Gloucester area. I've had a few things on their menu now (all delicious) but the Fried Haddock Sandwich will make you ask yourself, why do I get this anywhere else? The toasted brioche complements the large fillet of haddock perfectly. The food, service, and atmosphere is why I would definitely recommend Salt Water Grille.

Baked Haddock

After leaving two restaurants because of extraordinary long wait times, we had dinner at The Saltwater Grill, a fairly new restaurant in Gloucester Massachusetts. Thank you for having cloth napkins and decent cutlery!! We started with the clam chowder and fried brussel sprouts which was a specialty that evening, both were excellent. The fried brussel sprouts were plentiful, the clam chowder unfortunately had very few clams but the broth was delicious. We split the triple seafood dinner which was fried scallops, fried clams, and fried shrimp. The portion was huge, I cannot imagine someone eating it on their own. The fried seafood covered a mountain of french fries, and we got fried onion rings as well. The onion rings were perfection, but the fries would have benefitted from an extra two minutes in the fryer. Everything was delicious, nothing was overcooked. Tartar sauce was delicious, coleslaw was just right consistency (not soupy) but could have been seasoned a bit more. Service with our waitress, Heidi, was excellent, she was quick to bring drinks from the bar and attentive to us. A cosmos ordered was strong and tasty. The Muzak was upbeat, and the noise level moderate. We received the check in a timely manner and after giving our credit card, received our receipt quickly. We would definitely go back if we were ever in the area again.

Blackened or Fried Haddock Tacos

Blackened fish taco's are the best in Gloucester. The fresh slice of avocado in each taco, the thick pieces of fresh haddock, slaw, and the sides (not shown in the picture are pickled onions) - delicious.

Blackened or Fried Haddock Tacos

Excellent! The most fresh haddock and choice of grilled vs. fried! AND ultra fresh avacado slices! It was great to find ALL of the (fresh) fixings when we got home to unpack this healthy take out meal. We even enjoyed the left overs the next day! We really appreciated their attention to detail while having to dine at home! Delish!

Firecracker Shrimp

Our family got the firecracker shrimp, fish and chips, buffalo chicken and onion rings to split. EVERY dish was SO delicious. The onion rings are my new favorite, the fish was so thick and flaky, the shrimp had a great taste not fishy, and the chicken was just as yummy as the rest. :) We will definitely be going back for date nights and take out when we are able! Haha

Great new casual restaurant in Gloucester with easy parking, great staff and fantastic food! Have been there several times and I am a big fan of their haddock chowder, fish tacos and fish and chips! Staff is super friendly and the owner is there to be sure the food is well received and everyone is doing a great job. Congratulations ~

I'm always super nervous about ordering seafood in a restaurant, having grown up in Seattle and with my dad being an amazing cook nothing ever came close to what he would make, this Ciopinno is the exception. Hands down the best seafood I've had. Loved the atmosphere and service as well, definitely a new favorite spot.

Blackened or Fried Haddock Tacos

Amazing blackened fish tacos with just perfect seasoning and accompaniments for a filling and flavorful dinner. Finished the meal with a lovely Creme Brûlée. Another night ordered a beautiful risotto special that added mushrooms and a great piece of Halibut. Staff is wonderful and attentive each time I have visited or called.

Buffalo Chicken Fingers

Atmosphere is great, bar and wait staff are top notch and very friendly. The buffalo tenders are to die for, we also had the grilled swordfish and that was awesome as well. Can't say enough about the entire experience, highly recommend Saltwater Grille to all.

Fish & Chips

Friends and I had lunch last week. The fish and chips were fresh tasting and delicious. Two people had the fish tacos, which they loved, and one had a burger, equally as good. We will definitely go back.
