We had a very enjoyable experience the first time we tried this restaurant, so we made a follow up visit. The results were the same. The eclectic dining area is very inviting. The G Cosmo and House Manhattan were well crafted cocktails. Olivia had the beet salad again, which we both found amazing on our first visit. I had the... More

Been wanting to try this place for quite some time. Finally got the chance to dine her last night. The restaurant is small (30 seats) with a bar that seats 10. The decor is lovely. Our waitress was well versed and personable. The place seems to be a favorite with locals as the bar filled up quickly. We started with... More

This is a small and stylish restaurant and bar near the water in Swampscott. We have now visited on a number of occasions, and our experiences have been terrific. The menu is interesting and varied, with multiple options of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. We opted for the fish and vegetarian options-our spicy cauliflower, beet salad, eggplant and salmon were... More

Everything was perfect (and always is). Have been here a few times and are never disappointed. Everything is very fresh and local, if possible.

G Bar and Kitchen is hands down the class of Swampscott restaurants. We were recently there for a large family gathering and we were all very happy with our meals. For appetizers we started with their Crispy Wild Shrimp and the Sweet Potato Pancakes and both were excellent. The shrimp even has a nice little kick. I loved the Caesar... More

Great ambiance, service and even better food! My friend and I shared the beet salad which was fresh and delicious. We both enjoyed our entrees. The hostess and our server were professional and friendly. Our server was well informed about the menu and described the menu very well.

We hadn't dined at G in a few years, but heard so many positive comments we made a reservation. The restaurant is quite small and a large table delayed our seating for 15 minutes allowing time for a nice walk along Humphrey. We started with wine and their wonderful crispy shrimp with sriracha at the bar. Terrific and as good... More
