Great lunch!

I was impressed with the prices and the food, especially since I haven't been there in a while. Their new location is much more spacious and can accommodate more guests. My mom and I both got salads, hers was a salmon special while I opted for the grilled romaine with shrimp. She had a slight... read more

We went on a weekday night to Lorettas when it was on state st. it is now is a new larger location on Pleasant Street, around the corner block. It was a wonderful experience. We had the special of the night, and it was uniquely different but also very good. Definitely would go again. But, on a weekend, I would... More

Loretta's was a surprisingly pleasant space for lunch. We had seating near the window to watch the world go by. An efficient and professional server took our order which was delivered promptly. Both of us enjoyed our generous sandwiches (with fun fries) very much. I encourage you to visit Loretta's for lunch any time you are in Newburyport.

A new restaurant in downtown Newburyport. Not gourmet, and not expensive. A decent lunch or dinner for a decent price. Soups are a specialty. Excellent swordfish, when available. Good salads. Good burgers and fries. Full service bar. Fairly crowded every night of the week. Reservations needed on weekend nights. Excellent value.

Loretta in Newburyport now located in a larger location on Pleasant St around the corner from its State st location is a great local place to eat. The food is still outstanding and very reasonably priced. Whenever we don't feel like eating but want to eat a home cooked meal we go here. The owner Ted is almost always there... More

A nice, reasonable priced place for lunch. Had the lobster roll and it was generously filled with lobster meat. Husband had a meatball sandwich but he thought it was a bit too mushy, lots of cheese. Coleslaw has mustard in it, was ok but just not to our liking. Service very friendly and attentive.

We enjoyed our dinner visit with two other couples. We had requested a table in the back, which was less noisy than the front area; I would recommend asking if that is available, especially with a larger group. This was our first visit to the new location, and we appreciated the atmosphere. Menu was varied, and offered something that appealed... More
