For over 55 years, The Linquata Family's Gloucester House Restaurant has specialized in preparing North Atlantic seafood to perfection. Serving Cape Ann residents, seasonal visitors, and orchestrating of private f unctions have been our focus since 1957, and we take great pride in having satisfied customers for so many years.
We are a destination location for bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, anniversary parties, baby showers, birthdays, company events, and for small wedding receptions and ceremonies. Our Compass Rose Room (indoor facility with private entrace, dedicated kitchen, private bar, fireplace, small outdoor deck, and coat room) comfortably holds 120 guests which affords room for dancing with a band or a DJ. (We can accomodate up to 150 inside, however, with the removal of dining tables once dinner is over.) Our Cafe Seven Seas (rustic outdoor facility with separate restrooms, private bar, access to the open air, and unbeatable harbor views) can comfortably accomodate 150. We could concievably host 170, again with the removal of tables once dinner is over.
Showers, parties, and non-wedding events have access to three menu packages including a variety of buffets (lite, breakfast, brunch, luncheon, and dinner), sit down meals (available in three tiers, per price), and special occassion lobster bakes (one price level). Weddings have access to three menus as per our wedding packages, tiered by price.
All Gloucester House wedding packages include the rental of the facility for five hours, full-length linens with your choice of colored linen napkins, an even coordinator with unlimited consultations, fully stocked cash (or consumption-based) bar and cocktail service, and a champagne toast. Your wedding dinner package will also include stationary hor d'ouvres, passed hor d'ouvres, your choice of two entrees, salad, vegetable, and a starch, your choice of dessert, coffee and tea, as well as having your wedding cake plated and served to guests.
The Gloucester House will also work to accommodate additional needs including offering wine on each table, securing a DJ or live band, or arranging flower centerpieces. These services are an additional fee and upfront discussion with function coordinators about these requests is strongly recommended.
All other events -- as per our buffet, special occasion lobsterbake, and plated meal menus -- are priced per-person and include the use of the room for four hours, linens, and access to an event manager for consultation.
All inquiries should be directed to Dottie or Sandra at The Gloucester House via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone at 978-283-1812.

If I could give the Gloucester House more than 5 stars, I would. My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner here on July 8th. We were blown away by the service and the quality of the food! We were looking for a venue that would be nice but a good value, and close by and convenient for our bridal party and out of town guests. We could not have chosen a better spot. Our dinner was held in the Compass Rose Room, which was a beautiful, cozy room complete with big windows and a fireplace. We requested a buffet dinner with a wine and beer garden. The buffet dinner included a choice of two appetizers, four entrees, coffee, tea, and dessert. The food and service were outstanding! Our guests raved about it! The staff really went out of their way to make sure everyone was served quickly and efficiently and that the food was plentiful, tasty, and hot. All our guests had a wonderful time and were very impressed with the venue. Can't say enough good things about this place. So glad we chose it.Sent on 09/03/2017
