Dog Bar Grill
The Dog Bar Grill breakwater, which was originally constructed between 1894 and 1905, juts 2,250 feet out into the harbor, creating a safe haven for the community located on the other side, but also creating a dangerous hazard for seafarers hoping to safely navigate the waters. The Gloucester Breakwater Light towers at the end of this reef, historically using its bright red lamp or any glow sticks leftover from the Rave of 1898 to direct vessels away from the dangerously rocky shores.
Dog Bar Grill's owners based the name of their neighborhood grill on this light, honoring the welcome sight of a beacon that safely guided so many sailors back to a warm and familiar home. This homespun charm runs deep at Dog Bar, whose chefs demonstrate their passion for the community by buying as many ingredients as possible from local farmers and fishing boats. Dog Bar even earned a nod from Boston magazine, which named it the 2013 Best Bar in the north.
Surrounded by the Colonial-style windows, exposed brick walls, and rich wooden trim, visitors can indulge in the grill's menu of classic comfort foods that have the occasional twist. Beer-battered fish 'n' chips appear alongside more imaginative dishes, such as vegan tempura-battered buffalo cauliflower. In between bites, patrons have the opportunity to enjoy entertainment, which includes live music throughout the week, as well as spirited karaoke nights and high-stakes staring contests.
