This is a pub with great pub food. If you are looking for the best pub food ever, this is the place. Their onion rings, clam chowder, and lobster rolls are the best on the North Shore. I live in the area, and have sampled many chowders, and lobster rolls. These are GREAT. Nothing fancy, just wonderful food at a... More

We stopped in with friends last weekend and all had the haddock plate. Fresh, fresh, fresh food! Wait staff is always wonderful and knows the menu well so if you have questions it is not a problem. Onion rings and fries are delicious. Although its loud on the pub side that is our favorite area to sit. This is a... More

One of our favorite places. We always eat on the Pub side. Great people and wait staff. TV's for sports. Large bar and tables as well. The food is great. Love their steaks and clams. Way too many clams for one person, at least for me.

The Choate Bridge pub is usually very busy, and for good reason. It has fantastic fresh seafood. Great portion sizes (huge!). I've been a few times now and always look forward to and enjoy my experience there. It is a small place with the main bar area and restaurant area divided, so it can get a bit cramped if you're...

Small friendly place with good variety of beers on tap. Had the fried clam plate which was loaded with clams, and onion rings for just under $20. They have a deserved reputation for having the best fried clams around, so highly recommend them. However, the large return air vents near the tables at the front of the bar look like... More

Got to Ipswich late (9:30pm) and this was the only place open. Had feel of sports bar. Small and 3 tv's showing baseball, football and some other sport. Food was average but served hot and promptly. Good local beer selection.

Definitely a place for the locals and the curious tourist. Decent pub food. How can something fried be bad? Went with the wife and kids. Get a table in the back room away from the bar crowd. Fair prices.

On our way from Portland, Maine to Providence, Rhode Island...we needed a place to get a good lobster roll for lunch. This pub/restaurant was highly rated in Ipswich so we headed there. A good choice. Yes, no credit cards accepted but for $40 plus tip we got lobster roll with great fries and a glass of wine for me and... More

Came here for some drinks and food. It is a small place with bar in center and pub style tables surrounding it. The waitress/server was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I had a beer and a cheeseburger. It is 1/2 lb. Burger and you can tell it was not frozen but all fresh..Very good. The beer was very good and it... More
