Ted, the owner is always at the door to greet his customers and it is clear that his staff follows his lead with wanting to connect with the customers. The Staff is knowledgeable and clearly seem to enjoy working at Loretta's. The restaurant fills up quickly, as it it small and intimate. One will not be disappointed. The food is... More

I stop here for lunch a lot with my daughter and grandkids. You have to go early as they fill up quickly. There Loretta Burgers are juicy and delicious. The salads fresh and their specials always tasty. The kids love their grilled cheese sandwich. The fries are not at all greasy! You will not be disappointed in any of your... More

Really good comfort food and good drinks. The soup homemade soup was delicious for the cold day it was, and they had a good variety of sandwiches for lunch. It was also open for dinner.

I'm a local and this restaurant is cute and charming and the wait staff is terrific. But this is my second time here and the food is good but not great. I actually really like the menu but both times I've ordered something it was simply okay. Last time it was the grilled Cesar salad - Id had that before... More

Recently sat at the bar for dinner at Loretta. Very nice little space and the place was full and lively. We just felt that the food was average at best. My wife had the scallops and it was nothing more than scallops in a broiler dish with butter and some rice on the side...I have noticed they are no longer... More

We dined here last week after enjoying an afternoon show at the NSMT in Beverly. It was our first time. Although the room is small (I understand they amy be moving to larger quarters before too long), it was quite cozy. Service and fare were very good. The menu is not exhaustive but daily specials are offered. All in all,... More

We were in Newburyport for the night and at the last minute decided to try Loretta. Place is small, and tables are close together. At 7:30 they were out of one of the evening's specials, swordfish, and also out of salmon and chicken. Since their kitchen was open for two more hours, this should have been better planned. We tried... More

Before heading out to Newburyport for their annual Fall Harvest Festival, I researched lunch places here on Tripadvisor. Because of the great write ups, I chose Loretta's. We arrived a little before noontime and were seated right away. The hostess gave us menus and then licked her finger to separate off one copy of the daily specials which were printed... More

My wife and I were traveling from Boston to Portland, ME by way of costal roads. We were hungry and stopped in Newburyport looking for a nice and reasonably priced place to eat. Wow, it was our lucky day when we found Loretta!!! Very nice looking restaurant from the street in a great part of town. We had the lobster... More
