Starboard Galley is a legacy establishment

I just recently started going to Starboard Galley again and have been enjoying the delicious entrees. They have been in business for years and find that food is very good and will be coming back more often.

Went for a late lunch and got the fried clamari basket. It was a generous portion prepared to perfection.

I've had two visits to Starboard Galley and it is simply not a great dining experience. It is located close to the water but it's across a parking lot, not a direct view. It has a casual vibe. The fried seafood was quite good but expensive. The fried clam plate was $24.95. Non-seafood wasn't good. Steak tips were very tough... More

We were visiting friends in Exeter and they suggested we go to the Starboard Galley Restaurant for an early dinner - what a great suggestion! Tina, our server, could not have been more welcoming and friendly - she made us feel like a regulars. We sat out on the covered deck, and it was quite nice. The restaurant was quiet... More

On a recent drive to Newburyport, we were looking for a seafood lunch with a decent land menu as well. We looked on-line & after reading past reviews, decided upon Starboard Galley. Service & food did not disappoint along with reasonable prices. I had the lobster roll & clam chowder which was excellent & another person in our party had... More

Food was good, kind of high side of pricing. Deck is nice, but not the perfect view of the river, still worth it though. I had a fried fish basket, flavor and texture and quantity was good. I grew up around here and it used to be a lot more homey. The yuppies have ruined a lot of that with... More

I ate her for the first time this past weekend. Despite an unimpressive dining room, the food was really good and the staff was great. The prices were very reasonable. I had the cesar salad wrap and thought it was terrific. The kids grilled cheese sandwich was a very generous size. I would definitely go back.

Don't bother stopping at Starboard Galley. The 'deck' is a dirt parking lot away from the water. The food is okay, not worth a second trip. But the main issue is paying w/ a debit card. Not only did they hold double the amount from our account but they over-charged by 20% because we paid cash for the tip. A... More

Brought some new friends there today. They are from away and wanted to try some seafood. The clam chowder was great. We all had fried seafood and it was cooked to perfection! We've been eating at the same old places for a while because we like them and hadn't tried Starboard for a few years. We will add them to... More
