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.
