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.

Lobster pie was awful. Tasted either old or frozen previously. Have had fried oysers at many places better than this. Service was good, atmosphere was pleasant. Just the food was not enjoyable. We will not be back....

Dined at Starboard Galley on a beautiful, warm Saturday night in September. Newburyport was hopping, we felt very lucky to be quickly seated on the outside deck. Although the covered deck overlooked the parking lot, the boardwalk and water was just beyond, it was quiet, and very nice to be outside. Our server was prompt, the menu had many (mostly... More

Went to Starboard Galley with friends (their choice). I ordered from the daily special (Lobster Tail and Sirloin Tips. The Tail was small and the Tips were uneatable. Others had fish that was fine but again for the prices, it wasn't that great. Even a glass of wine was high priced and there were few choices.

We were driving along the coast from Boston to Maine and stopped by Starboard Galley for lunch along the way. We selected this based on the online reviews. We had the Mussels, Shrimp basket, Lobster Mac and Cheese, Blackened Salmon and Shrimp Casserole. The Mussels and Salmon were amazing. The shrimp basket and Mac and cheese were good and the... More

Right on the ocean. Big restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. As always boiled lobster is ordered. Very sweet this year, but my Godmother called them "Chicken Lobster", she aught to know as she lives there. Said that they were probably 1 to 1 1/4 pound, expensive about $20 each. Holiday weekend though.. We will be back again next year!

The majority of my family had twin lobsters, only $20.00 per meal. The lobster was cooked to perfection! My son in law loved his lobster bisque, thick and filled with large pieces of lobster. We were too full for dessert. We are coming back for the lobster pie.
