It might not come right to your mind when you are thinking about where to have lunch, but put Laneside Pub and Brewery at Cape Ann Lanes on Gloucester Ave in your rotation. This small pub adjoins the bowling lanes and will soon have outside dining as well. The atmosphere is pleasant and soothing, which might come as a surprise in a bowling alley. Jillian gets a shout out as our friendly server. We had a nice chat with owner Nick while his wife Caitlyn was busy with customers and children. When things might be hectic downtown, this is a logical choice for a nice quiet lunch.
I had the cheeseburger and Jim got their famous loaded tots. Jim also ordered Trophy, one of the brews which he enjoyed very much. Thanks guys!
