Many beers on tap and a broad range of types of beer. Beautiful wood paneling, relaxing place. The food was very ordinary. We tried the Ruben, a turkey club and the salmon burger. Everyone said that the food was good, but not great.

Prompt, friendly service. There were so many interesting menu offerings it was hard to decide. Lots of vegetarian choices. Had their award winning seafood chowder. It was full of haddock shrimp and scallops and had a nice creamy taste. Their crab cake appetizer had lots a crab and was probably why the two cakes were small. The greens were unfortunately...

The Grog is like putting on your favorite sweater, it always feels comfortable. We meet friends there at least once a month and are never disappointed. The food is consistently good, friendly service and never rushed. A great place to meet friends and catch up, ask for a table on the second floor. The Grog could use a face lift,... More

This place served up a good chowder. The broad beer menu, both tap and bottled, covered the varied tastes of our group. The town is fun to explore too with it's great old architecture.

This was a lunch time shot in the dark one day while driving through Newburyport. Turns out that this place had dozens of beers on tap and the chance of finding something you'll like is in the neighborhood of 100%. The menu is multi-paged and diverse, you will find something to satisfy your taste. This place was established just after... More

Want great food and a zillion beers to choose from? Live music? Then you must try the Grog. I always stop here when I'm in town. Lunch, dinner, or just go for the night's entertainment. The Grog will show you what Newburyport is all about; its where the locals go to meet. You'll make new friends and go home happy.

After a very disappointing experience here, last summer I decided to try it again last Saturday. I should have left well enough alone...Having just returned from London, I was actually excited to see a Ploughman's Platter on the menu and ordered that with a Newburyport Pale Ale. First I got the wrong beer...no worry, it was cold and wet so... More

Nice to be in a traditional restaurant in Newburyport. We had dinner there on a Wednesday evening, and it was pleasantly peaceful. Service was attentive (in a good way), and the food was fresh and good. The place has clearly been there a while, and the interior is pub-like,with booths. The menu covered all bases, with several interesting salads, and... More
