The Causeway Restaurant In Gloucester

It is said that to really know the true flavor of an area – ask the locals where they eat. It is usually a hidden gem, fresh ingredients made with love, huge portions, not too flashy, and always with lines out the door.

Well, that could not be truer of our Neighbor, the Causeway Restaurant. Ranked #2 out of 136 Restaurants in Gloucester on Trip Advisor, we are all wondering who #1 is! The menu has something for everyone, serving both lunch and dinner 11 months of the year. I guess one month is a well-deserved break from 7 days of great food and service, starting at 11am for lunch and continuing through dinner.

No Alcohol on the menu but Feel free to bring in your own bottle of Wine or Beer.in.

The Causeway has been a local favorite serving Italian and seafood entrees for over ten years. They offer in-house dining and take-out. The turn-over and with well-versed fast-paced servers means even if you have to stand in line – you won’t for long. They have it down. Don’t bother trying to get a reservation as it is first come first seated. And you better bring your appetite or plan on leaving with a doggie bag.

This is an excellent review and video – please enjoy and next time you stop and see us plan on eating at the Causeway.

Gloucester to Receive 2015 Commonwealth Award
For Leadership in Arts and Culture

Prestigious award to be presented on Tuesday, February 24th at State House


(Gloucester, MA) – The City of Gloucester today announced that the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) will recognize the community’s leadership in promoting arts and culture with the 2015 Commonwealth Award in the Creative Community category.  The Commonwealth Awards, which honor exceptional achievement in the arts, humanities, and sciences, will be presented on Tuesday, February 24th at a State House ceremony.

“Gloucester is extremely proud of its fishing identity and maritime heritage. We are equally proud to be recognized as a community that promotes and supports arts, culture, and the important contributions that artists make to our growing creative economy,” said Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken. “From the new Cultural Center at Rocky Neck to the renovation of the Cape Ann Museum, Gloucester has emphasized cultural revitalization as a centerpiece of the City’s past, present and future.”

“The MCC is honored to shine a spotlight on the extraordinary institutions and individuals who make the Commonwealth’s cultural life the envy of our nation,” said MCC Executive Director Anita Walker. “Their achievements remind us that expanding the quality and availability of arts and cultural experiences to our citizens doesn’t happen by accident. It takes leadership, generosity, and a commitment to excellence.”

In 2012 Gloucester’s Rocky Neck Cultural District became one of the first cultural districts designated in Massachusetts.  The same year, the Gloucester HarborWalk was unveiled as a showcase for the city’s working waterfront, beloved cultural institutions and world-class artists. In 2013, Gloucester became the first community in Massachusetts to be granted two cultural district designations with unanimous approval of the Gloucester Harbortown Cultural District by the MCC. Gloucester received the prestigious designations because of its unparalleled setting along the boundaries of the working waterfront and its rich concentration of museums, performing arts spaces, studios, galleries, and unique locally owned shops and restaurants.

Presented biennially since 1993, the Commonwealth Awards honor the extraordinary contributions made by the arts, humanities, and sciences to education, economic vitality, and quality of life in Massachusetts. Past winners include leading artists and scholars such as Yo-Yo Ma, Olympia Dukakis, and David McCullough; world-renowned institutions like Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival and the Peabody Essex Museum, and communities that have made arts and culture central to their revitalization efforts.

The Commonwealth Awards ceremony is a free event that is open to the public. To register, please visit http://www.massculturalcouncil.org,
