It’s a frosty high tide on the Causeway this morning. There’s a sheen of ice over the river creating some pretty reflections. Days like this I wish I brought my big girl camera with me 😀
I have no idea how they put out the quality food and huge portions that they do at The Causeway but I’m not about to question it- the formula just works. People drive from Upstate New York just to eat here. Insider tip: This is the time of year to eat here. I don’t even … Continue reading There’s A Reason the Causeway Restaurant Is Ranked 5th our of 127 Restaurants In Gloucester On trip Advisor

I stopped in at the Causeway to pickup my favorite fish chowder in Gloucester and found at packed house, and people waiting outside.
Chicken Abruzzi is a great way to fuel up! Chicken roasted peppers, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomato & capers in a lemon sauce served over ziti. Awesome! Enjoy! http://www.northshorekid.com

Had fried smelt at the Causeway Restaurant yesterday. $7.99 for a generous amount of fresh fried smelt and french fries. I couldn’t finish them and I can generally put away a huge amount of fried smelt. Before ordering I was sure to ask if the smelt were fresh or previously frozen. Our most excellent server … Continue reading The Causeway
Causeway restaurant eggplant parm $10, delicious, and enough to feed two or three people. It’s that time of year to put the Causeway into your rotation as there’s a much better chance of getting a table in the off-season.

With the third nor’easter to hit our shores during the month of March expected to arrive tonight, track-hoe excavator Larry shares that the work continued today to fortify the causeway, and to possibly get more water to flow through the clogged drain that is preventing excess water from leaving Niles Pond.

The beautiful newly constructed causeway that separates Niles Pond and Brace Cove, which was rebuilt several years ago, is now a jumble of rocks and boulders.

The berm, or causeway, separating Brace Cove and Niles Pond is undergoing extensive maintenance. As has been reported here on GMG many times, the berm was severely damaged by a succession of storms, very notably after Superstorm Sandy. The causeway is also increasingly at risk because the Brace Cove breakwater has deteriorated, which means that the berm is harder hit … Continue reading Outstanding Cape Ann Environmental News: Niles Pond and Brace Cove Causeway Restoration Underway!
Nothing else needs to be said – DELICIOUS Peter, Enza and the crew do a wonderful job preparing some of the best dishes in the area. Always a wonderful dining experience at the Causeway Restaurant.
To call a bowl of Causeway Fish Chowder simply a bowl of fish chowder is leaving out the fact that the amount of fish in the Causeway’s Fish Chowder is the amount of fish that you would normally find in three bowls of fish chowder at most other joints.
