Soooo happy to have crusty, egg-ey popovers alongside their carrot-ginger soup. Delicious lunch, and lovely gals who are attentive and friendly. The chef is creative with appetizing plates that don't disappoint. My husband had the Rachel pastrami sandwich and he declared it a winner. We'll be back......maybe even tomorrow!!

I ordered the lobster roll and my son got the haddock sandwich. The lobster had avocado, lettuce and tomato. The haddock sandwich is Cajun seasoned. Both were delicious. The restaurant is cozy and warm. You will love it.

Right on Main Street Gloucester, sits this friendly little restaurant perfect for shoppers, business people and anyone who wants a delicious lunch or dinner for a reasonable price. One of the great perks is that they greet you with a piping hot popover when you sit down. Salads and entrees are creative, delicious and nicely presented. There is a small... More

We've eaten here many times but this is the first time I've written a review. We always enjoy our meal and always come back. The restaurant is rustic, small and warm. The seafood is what we generally come for. This time the three of us shared a salad and a half. I had the shrimp quesadilla and my wife and... More

Liked the atmosphere. Staff was okay.Soup was forgotten. Baked seafood dish had a full sleeve of ritz crackers,(I know some places do it that way, should ask for light cracker topping) Lobster sandwich was bland. Said it came with a lemon Aioli, if I didn't squeeze the lemon on it it wouldn't of tasted anything. Roll was to thick. Caesar... More

This restaurant was recommended by the Cape Ann Art Museum (another gem) so we gave it a whirl. They won us with the popovers served out of a big basket and big slabs of butter. No weeney dipping oil here! Orders two "cups" of haddock chowder - which were gigantic! And very fresh and flavorful. I thought a cup size... More

Hot, crusty, melt in your mouth popovers. Take half home so you have room for incredible food. My friend and I had fried oysters. I'm never having fried oysters any where else again. We had the red curry salmon. Superb. We had enough for 2 more lunches. Thank you to the guy at Floating Lotus for the recommendation. Thanks, too,... More

Visiting Rockport and Gloucester last week, Passports was recommended to us by some local people. We followed their recommendation. Great find. We visited two days in a row. The popovers are worth the visit. Warm and fresh and served upon being seated. We were all happy with our lunch- trying the different tastes. Cobb Salad, a Caesar salad with fried... More

Just their popovers alone are to die for. Been to so many restaurants that pride themselves on their meal-starting popovers. More often than not, they look much better than they taste. Passport's are simply the best I've ever had. And everything else we ordered was of equal or close-to-it quality. Our waitress has a very "distinct" personality . . .... More
