Why is Duckworths so good?
First it's in East Gloucester, 100 meters from Gloucester Harbor, arguably one of the most picturesque spots on the planet. Second its small and cozy. Third it has amazing cocktails like "Texas Skinny," which has a wonderful aromatic grapefruit flavor. Third they cater to vegetarians with two amazingly tasty options - an asparagus and beet risotto and a polenta with mushrooms. If you happen to be a meat eater you might want to try the meatballs with a sweet and our rhubarb sauce. My wife, Anne, was raving about this dish.
Service is always excellent - two of the wait staff have been there for years and are just as upbeat as the day they started.
The only negative is getting a reservation in the summer - you need to plan a week ahead at least.
