A few years ago I visited Ipswich and made the obligatory visit to the Clam Box. It was ok, but I left wondering what all the fuss was about. So, when I returned to the area, I asked a few locals for a recommendation and was told to check out Choate Bridge. Boy am I glad I did! For someone... More

The Pub at the Choate Bridge Restaurant has a very friendly atmosphere. The Pub has always been busy each time I have been there. The Seafood Chowder is wonderful as is the Chicken Gumbo. I have tried the cheeseburger and the turkey club - both delicious. The beer is always nice and cold and mixed drinks are poured nicely. The... More

Visiting Boston from NC we came up to find a clam shack in Ipswich. This place was packed on Sunday afternoon and for good reason. The clams fries and onion rings were great.

I eat here on occasion as I work in Ipswich. I have sat both in the bar and the dining room. The food is always good, served hot, cooked fresh and service is friendly and quick. I haven't had anything I wouldn't eat again it's all good.

Great local no - frills restaurant, with delicious food options. The lobster roll is my go-to, full of big chunks of meat. Our whole table got them. Don't be surprised or upset if you find a piece of shell - it is that fresh. Grab an Ipswich Ale with it and your day is set. Cash only. Good for friends,... More

I usually go here with the kids. It is a small family restaurant. There is a bar on the other side. We all get the hamburgers which are the best I've ever had. It is served on an onion roll with lettuce, tomatoes and onions. It comes with french fries or onion rings. The patty is about 1.5 inches thick.... More

You can't go wrong at the Pub. From burgers, to salads with blackened salmon to steaks, onion rings and the best fried clams... Everything at the Choate Bridge Pub is consistently great. Beers on tap, wine and reasonable drink prices along with sports on the tv...family dining as well if you don't want to be on the bar side. It's... More

We stopped at Ipswich for the farmers market and decided to eat before setting off. Been in Massachusetts for 2 weeks and had some great meals but this was one of the best. We were lucky there was a 2 seat booth available. Ordered the grill combo with fries and butternut squash, and hubby had New York steak fries and... More

We had a lovely late supper at the Choate Bridge Restaurant, which was recommended by the innkeepers at Ipswich Inn. We had lobster rolls which were very delicious, and they really piled the lobster on!!
