As far as I can remember we have come here. I love the lobster pie. Service is always great. There are all different areas to sit in, I've dined in them all and they all offer a unique experience.

Very relaxing area just 2 blocks away from the main center of town. Walking around the town is the best bet to absorb all the cute shops and eateries. This was the best New England clam chowder I have had lately. Not that thick gunk full of cornstarch and big chunks of potato, like some restaurants like to do. It... More

I went to the starboard galley for dinner a week or two ago. As we walked we were immediately greeted by a very polite and cute blonde who immediately sat us at our table. There are views from every room as far as I could tell but the best is in the back dining room or on the deck! We... More

We got a groupon to have lunch in the Newburyport lighthouse, this was the only dining option available. My wife's steak was very overcooked but my haddock was really good. Our server was fantastic, bringing our food up to us in the top of the lighthouse right next to the restaurant. The scallops in bacon were very good too.

Going to the Starboard on my first evening in Newburyport is as natural to me as passing by the Mall--it is just part of being home. The style and decor never changes--don't ask miracles-- and the crowd at the bar may be more or less rowdy, given the sports season.. However, the food is always reliably fresh and excellent. Lobster,... More

After a day of birdwatching on Plum Island, my companion and I had an early dinner at Starboard Galley. We just about had the place to ourselves. We sat by a window which overlooked the Merrimack River. An outdoor seating area is surely popular in better weather. Our server was very pleasant and attentive, ready to refill coffee cups and...

For many years I looked forward to visiting this restaurant. The best thing I can say about it is that it was very disappointing. The service and the food lacked everything we expected. We crossed this one off of our list.
