We visited Loretta's for the first time last night. We arrived at 8pm and this little restaurant was quite busy. We were greeted promptly by the owner and sat at the bar for a few minutes until a table opened. Our server was friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. I had the shrimp scampi which I really enjoyed.... More

I went here with my wife for a belated anniversary dinner. I decided that Danvers, Peabody, and Salem just didn't have what I was looking for that evening. I took a look at the top reviews around Newburyport and thought I'd give Loretta a try. We arrived around 5:45 pm and there weren't that many people there. We were seated... More

Ordered the salmon--it was perfectly cooked & delicious. Had garlic mashed potatoes and green & yellow beans as my sides. Both were delicious & cooked perfectly. The service was extremely friendly. There is outside seating also, & it's dog-friendly outside (as are other outdoor restaurants).

Today was our wedding anniversary. We got married 27 years ago in Newburyport and had dinner afterward at Scandia. We decided to go back to the "scene of the crime" and since Scandia is no longer there we found Loretta in its place. What a perfect choice. The staff was lovely and made it a very special meal. When they... More

We tried the chicken salad wrap and lobster roll. Both were very good. Fresh ingredients and fresh breads. I would definitely recommend it.

It was like eating with strangers the tables where that close! We ordered sweat potato fries for an app and was given a... More

My family and I, together with another family, have been spending a week on Plum Island every year and have come to know the local restaurant scene pretty well. We first ate at Loretta last year and enjoyed it, but this year we liked it so much we went there twice. The owner used to own one of our favorite... More

We were out to dinner with friends from the West Coast and Loretta was recommended by one of the people at the marina where their boat was moored. Fortunately, we were a party of six and they were able to seat us immediately; they have limited outside seating. We immediately were presented with the menus and had our drink orders... More

Loretta's is a lovely and quaint little spot in Newburyport. The folks are friendly and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. Try the delicious grass fed burger or the salmon.....YUM!! My friends tell me the pastrami at lunch is to die for!We ordered the (delicious) ribs and a cheddar burger to share. Nice! Great sweet potato fries too.
