Lobster Rolls & Fried Clams: Our lobsters are fresh-picked and delivered to us by a Cape Ann lobsterman. Then we cook it to sweet perfection, hand-shuck it, toss it with a bit of mayo, and serve it in a toasted, buttered split-top roll.  It is New England lobster roll perfection. Locally harvested, our clams are the sweetest, most tender you’ll find. Lightly battered, fried to a golden brown and served up with hand-cut fries, cole slaw and a tangy tartar sauce.

Situated in the downtown village section of picturesque Manchester-by-the-Sea, 7 Central Public House, is conveniently located within walking distance of Singing Beach, Manchester Harbor and the MBTA commuter rail. Serving the Manchester community for over 100 years, 7 Central offers artfully prepared lunch, dinner and, of course, Sunday brunch service.

The restaurant’s bright, front pub looks out over town hall common and Central Street, while the back dining room offers a slightly more formal dining experience and an additional, full-service bar overlooking our back deck with views of Saw Mill Brook. All dining areas offer the restaurant’s full menu starting at 4:30pm Monday through Thursday, 11:45am Friday through Saturday & starting at 11:00 am for brunch on Sunday.

In addition to our dining offerings, we present nightly events and weekend entertainment which includes the North Shore’s best in live, local music on Saturday and Sunday nights in the pub as well as national-caliber comedy and concert events in our 7Up event space.

Whether visiting town and looking for great dining option, taking in one of our many nightly events and live entertainment options, or enjoying a special evening with friends or family, 7 Central is Cape Ann’s best option for uncompromising dining and entertainment.

The Latest and Greatest

Calling out to my Vegan, Healthy Eaters and Curious FB Friends.
I have been reading for months about a Non-Meat Burger that has been sweeping the nation. The Impossible Burger is a plant based Burger that I swear you would believe it to be an actually 100% meat burger.
The impossible is true because it is nearly Impossible to even get one of these so far.
After numerous phone calls and emails I found the National Inside Sales Manager who hooked me up with a 10 pack of his simply amazing product.
We tested them amongst the staff and a few select (and possibly picky) customers last night and the feedback was 100% UNBELIEVABLE. The look, the taste the smell will have you thinking this came from a high end meat distributor BUT it's NOT!
If you want to be one of the first people in Cape Ann to have one of these Impossible Burgers I'm asking that you LIKE and SHARE this post. At 5:00PM I will randomly pick 7 Lucky People who we will ask to come to 7 Central tonight to receive a complimentary Impossible Burger for you to try.
I am not Vegan and Love my Burgers, Steaks and other meat products. This is a game changer, A must for everyone to try. I'm can't wait to try one again tonight along with you. Once again:
Like this Post and Share it on your FB page.
I will post the winners name between 5:15 & 5:30 tonight.
It will be up to you to get your butt to 7 Central at 7:00PM tonight with a photo ID to receive your prize. We should find out today when we will receiving our first order for everyone to enjoy. Keep checking out our B page for details.
