Been coming here for years now...

On the Merrimack River, although the view is separated by a parking lot and docks...but I did say PARKING LOT, and in downtown Newburyport this is a Godsend. Park your car and walk in. Seafood is great. Love their fried shrimp. It's a great place for families, couples, you name it. There is an... read more

My seafood stew should have been called vegetable stew - minimal amount of seafood, lots of vegetables. Tasty but disappointing.

Really good seafood and chowda. Great value, and a nice family place. No real water views but you want seafood you come here.

Starboard Galley is a local spot devoid of the pretentious atmosphere new eateries often have. Neat bar to watch a baseball game while sipping on a beer (or wine). Seating both inside or on the deck. There is also a function hall upstairs. I recommend fishermen stew and fish & chips but boneless buffalo wings for an appetizer is a... More

Had lunch here on a Saturday at noon. We had Lobster Rolls with Fries, Baked Haddock with mashed potatoes and zucchini, Steak with fries. My family each had a bowl of clam chowder, which was very tasty! We did get dessert....they were very well proportioned. We had Bread Pudding, Chocolate Mouse and Strawberry Shortcake. Each one was freshly made and... More

Haven't been here for awhile because we are staying away for fried food, the grandchildren wanted lobster so this was the place we always went. The service couldn't have been better unfortunately there was only one lobster left for two kids, It was a Friday night so that was a bit surprising. It could have been because of the price,...

I'm a local. I chuckled when I read the review that "locals eat here". I've been twice and both times my meal was mediocre. I hate to be stereotypical, but this place always seems to be filled with senior citizens. I guess you probably get a good value for your money here, but I don't think the food is anything... More

This is a nice location to visit most any time of the year. With outdoor seating near the river I expect it would be nice during the summer. I ate here with my wife on a cold winter Saturday evening. There is ample reserved off-street parking which is a real bonus - with immediate access to the restaurant from the... More

I always like going here, very comfortable. Friendly staff. Foods always good. Along the river with the coast guard station out back to the right. Fish is excellent, also has burgers, all around food, it is the place the regulars go so that tells me a lot about the restaurant !

My husband and I stopped here for lunch just for the chowder. I had the creamy clam in a very generous bowl. He had a southwestern chicken which was very good. This is a "must" place to go to when visiting Newburyport.
