Welcome to The Sole Proprietor

Worcester’s favorite Seafood restaurant

Welcome – or should we say, welcome back. Because nearly everyone in Worcester knows The Sole Proprietor. There’s a good reason: The Sole has been named Worcester’s best seafood restaurant in local reader polls every year since 1979. In fact, The Sole beat out hundreds of big-name establishments all across the US to be named one of the top 10 seafood restaurants in the country.

Here at The Sole Proprietor, you’ll not only find the very freshest seafood (and other selections!) prepared in a variety of mouth-watering ways, you’ll also enjoy great service. Whether you have a question about the menu or you’re interested in a recommendation from our award-winning wine list, our staff is here to ensure a perfect dining experience.

About The Sole

The Sole was not named among the best seafood restaurants in the country for its food or its wine, for its décor or the hospitality its staff provides. It was ranked among the country’s best for its ability to offer all of these things.

Private Dining

The Sole was designed to be elegant, yet intimate. Different areas of the restaurant can be divided into function rooms, so you can host your event privately and comfortably, whether you’re hosting a party of 10 or a group of 65.


The Sole Proprietor has maintained its status among the best seafood restaurants in New England for nearly 40 years, a streak that few restaurants anywhere can rival.
