Being a vegetarian, I was aware my lunch choices would be limited at this well-known fish and seafood restaurant: the Caesar Salad, a Wild Beet & Gouda Salad and the Pear & Walnut Salad. I chose the pear & walnut salad which was small - even for a lunch entree. The size turned out to be appropriate because I did... More

The food at this seafood bistro is excellent and fresh. But, what really made the day was the excellent attentive and friendly service of our waitress, Nicole. I highly recommend both the restaurant and her.

This place is a very good place to dine. They specialize in seafood. They have good appetizers specials at happy hour. Parking can be a pain sometimes.

Friday evenings the place is packed with good people. Expensive, but you get what you pay for. The seafood is very good and the service is also very good.

This is one of the best sea food places in the area. The food is always great and it is easy to get to. If you are going for dinner, make sure you either get there early or make reservations. If you don't, you will wait for a while to get in. Lunch is easier to get in without waiting.

The room was very loud... do they not have private rooms for parties of 14?? Service was quick. Too quick? Lobster rolls were dry and uninteresting. Dinner rolls hot and delicious. Crab cakes were mostly filling and sadly Alaskan crab not blue crab. Asian slaw was inedible. Blacken swordfish had no flavor but the Brussel sprouts were good. The waitress... More

The service is always top notch and the food is excellent. This trip, I had the cherrystone's for an appetizer and then a 2 lb lobster dinner with all of... More

One of Worcester's best restaurants which is a real institution being in operations since decades. There is not a bad selection on the menu if you are looking for seafood and shellfish. You can equally sit at the bar and enjoy your meal, or take a table. Lunch and dinner are equally full of patrons, but finding a spot usually... More

Second visit to the Sole Proprietor and again it was excellent! Very high quality fresh seafood and attentive service that doesn't rush you! Scallops were to die for!

We have gone to this restaurant many times and always walk away knowing we had an excellent meal. Food is carefully prepared and more than being pleasing to the eye, it is delicious. Great ingredients, skilled chefs and cordial waitstaff create a wonderful dining experience.
