Blackened or Fried Haddock Tacos

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.

Fish & Chips

we had this meal and it was excellent, the fish was prefectly cooked and yet moise and flakey inside , and, well... the onion rigs ( in place of fries) were the best either my husband or i have ever had!!

Blackened or Fried Haddock Tacos

The fried haddock tacos were the best i have ever had. I also had a cup of clam chowder. i rate the chowder in third place on Cape Ann. the taste was great nice and thick but it was a little light on the stock. all and all the food was very good. my wife was a little upset she does not eat fish only choice on menu for her was stake tips and chicken and pasta. dont think she was as happy as i was. the tip she said were very good.

Filet Mignon

Went to dinner here a few weeks ago. This was the Best Filet Mignon, I have ever had!!! It was cooked to perfection and the onion rings were to die for. On top of that was the very tasty Lobster Buoy totally amazing!!! Can't wait to return to try the Chicken Piccata and Marsala. They have my vote, top restaurant in Gloucester as far as I am concerned!!

Blackened or Fried Haddock Tacos

First time visiting. I had the blackened fish taco, and I have to honestly say, it was the best fish taco that I've had in the area so far. Owners did a great job with the remodeling of the old Friendlies. Very comfortable atmosphere. I am looking forward to going again and trying another item on the menu.

Fried haddock sandwich with onion rings and a side of delicious cole slaw was tasty and enough for two meals. Looking forward to trying more creations which I expect to be delicious too!

Seafood Comb

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.

Fish & Chips

I am in town visiting my daughter who lives in Beverly, MA and we thought it would be fun to try a new place for lunch before a day of shopping in Gloucester/ glad we picked your restaurant. I had the fish and chips which was delicious and the portion was very generous. The restaurant staff was extremely friendly, verbally welcoming everyone as they came in, and we can't wait to come back for dinner and bring others with us!

Blackened or Fried Haddock Tacos

We had the blackened fish taco and the special lobster quesadilla-oh my gosh! They were both delicious. The servings were large. The fish taco was one of the best we've had, and there was plenty of lobster in the quesadilla. It was our first time there, and we will definitely be back.
