Best whole belly clams I ever had...fun place! Swordfish was excellent as well. This local restaurant was within walking distance of the Ipswich Bed and Breakfast which was a plus.

The lobster rolls are outstanding, otherwise the menu is rather ordinary. If pub food is to your liking, this will fit the bill.

Oh, Lordy! So, I've dragged my partner through New England on a graveyards in the snow tour and we are HUNGRY! Of course, I am going to love this place because I am descended from the very Choate the bridge is named after! Woo hoo! I'm almost in tears with happiness as it is my BIRTHDAY and I am eating...

Lunch at Choate Bridge Restaurant was very good. We had burgers and one chicken salad BLT. The burgers were great. Chicken salad was OK. White and dark meat. Onion rings and fries were also great. They only take cash but have a cash machine on location.

We use to go there a couple of times a month. Unfortunately it's one big free for all when it comes to getting a table or a seat at the bar. They won't take names when you first get there even if there is a wait. They tell you to sit wherever you find an open seat or table. Unfortunately... More

Nice little local pub. I had a burger and it was really good. Service was good and it seems like a nice little place. There was a large TV for sports viewing, or you could sit near the windows and view the downtown area. Average prices, paid about $10 for hamburger with fries.

We were staying in a bed and breakfast in Ipswich and the owner recommended going in to the pub for lobster rolls and fried clams for dinner. Taking the advice we went on down (drove down since it was raining) and settled into a table across from the bar. As was recommended we get an order of fried clams to... More

We've been going to the Choate Bridge Pub for a number of years and it just keeps getting better. This last visit I had the lobster roll, it was very good, my brother-in-law had a piece of prime rib that was enormous and so tender you could cut it with a fork, my wife and my brother-in-law's girl friend had...

We were told by someone 20 minutes away that Choate Bridge had the best lobster roll they had ever tasted and was worth the drive. Now we were on Plum Island where they have excellent (we thought) lobster roll. Worth it?...worth the drive?...oh yes..it was, by far the best lobster roll we had ever tasted....all lobster, no fillers...outstanding..it came with... More

Local watering hole with good food. Seafood is very good (fried scallops, clams, fish & chips). Great burgers. Prime rib on Saturdays is huge and good. A fun casual place to eat and have a cold beer.
