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.

How to Avoid Getting Seasick

Becoming unexpectedly ill as a result of seasickness is always a possibility. In one form or other, it is possible for anyone on the trip to feel sick, even on calm waters. It can happen to anyone. If you have a tendency to get seasick or suffer from motion sickness, we strongly recommend you consider a prescription patch for the trip. At a minimum, we recommend that you take over the counter medication like Dramamine, starting the night before your trip. It does little good to start taking these over the counter medications once you are feeling queasy. Be sure you carefully follow the instruction label for taking an over-the-counter medication to ensure sufficient dosage. The dosage is typically calculated for a 150-pound person.

What you eat and drink before and during a trip is crucial to avoiding seasickness. Typically bland, easily digestible food is best. Pass on the predawn bacon, egg and cheese sandwich! Minimize alcohol consumption. Getting sick will definitely ruin your day and can make the trip unpleasant for the other guests; so we urge you to err on the side of caution.

Dock and Departure

Unless otherwise agreed upon, fishing charters depart from Cape Ann Marina, 75 Essex Ave. Gloucester MA. The time for departure is dependent on the type of charter and the time of year. Please confirm your charter departure time and plan to be at the dock at least 15 minutes prior.

What You Should Bring

Food (bagged lunches)
Drinks (soda, water, juice and beer/wine)
Appropriate Clothing

Rain gear, waterproof boots or shoes.
If you’re a hearty soul out fishing in the fall or early winter, you’ll want to dress in layers.
Sun visor or a hat to block the powerful rays.
