The Causway serves portions of food that would satisfy the hardest to please King and Queen of the land. Their clam chowder feeds 2 people, and is the best in Gloucester. You can't go wrong ordering anthing there. I recommend the mussels marinara, or the shrimp scampi or maybe the Peters platter. It is all top notch food, take it from a local Gloucesterite for 37 years its where the locals go.
This was one of the top restaurants I have ever been to. You may not think so from the outside appearance. Our waitress (Annette) was very attentive to our needs. The place quickly filled with local folks because they know the best place to eat in the area. We found it entirely by accident, and we're very happy we did.

We have been going to the Causeway since we discovered it about 4 years ago! I hesitated writing a review for fear that others will flock here and make the wait that much longer than it is now. The food is excellent, large portions - easily two people can share an entree. Shabby decor but that is what makes this place such a gem! Love that it is BYOB! Very convienent haveing the liquor store next door!

Best seafood in Massachusetts with huge portions reasonably priced. During the summer the wait to dine can be a long one but people do wait and that says it all about the quality of the seafood.
The resaurant is quite small and the crowds are large so the only outstanding features are the quality of the food and the speed of the service. The parking is limited so most folks will park accross the street in the Yankee Fishing Fleet Parking lot which is nearly empty in the evening.
On my first visit the folks at the table next to ours raved about the food and reported that his friends from Cape Cod said it was the best seafood they have had. When his baked haddock dinner arrived it appeared to be enough to feed a small family! The fish chowder is outstanding, best I have ever had, with large portions of white fish making it a meal!
If you want outstanding seafood, visit this restaurant, you will not regret your decision!

A great place for seafood. Go there in the winter with the locals. It is a long wait on summer weekends. The food is great and is a great value. Try the fish chowder. No liquor on premises, but you can bring your owm and there is a package store right next to the restaurant.
