Excellent Lunch!

NYAJ's looks like a pizza joint, and they do serve pizza, but they also have a lot of nice plated meals - and a completely separate gluten-free menu, and staff who "get" the details. They have nice gluten-free bread to enjoy their lovely olive-oil/Parmesan dip with, and lots of great GF entrees, and willingness in the kitchen to adapt even... More

Food was average at best. Table near us sang Happy Birthday or should I say screamed Happy Birthday 3 separate times. Then a few minutes later about 10 wait staff came over and sang Happy Birthday. Felt like I was attending a birthday party and could not enjoy my meal (although it was AVERAGE at best). I had the turkey... More

My husband and I sat inside as it was chilly out, but we could still see the harbor. I had a very tasty salmon and he had a crusty chicken dish. Both were excellent. The service was prompt and efficient, though we were called "guys", a pet peeve of ours. We'll eat there again this summer.

I was not familiar with this chain, but I am very happy I gave it a shot. My daughter and I loved our sandwiches and service was excellent. Prices were more than reasonable. They have patio seating out front on the picturesque street and in the back, with a water view.

The outdoor seating in downtown Newburyport is fantastic. There's plenty of room and lots of tables. Everything is really nice! Our waitress was decent and seemed to have a pleasant attitude as well. As we looked at the menu she brought us the bread. This freshly baked focaccia bread is fantastic and worth going for all by itself. It comes... More

Ate on back patio and had an attentive, friendly waitress. Nice view of the harbor. Delicious bread with our beer and peach sangria. Had jambalaya and haddock with garlic mashed potatoes and a fresh salad. Like that it was no problem to trade out the coleslaw for a salad. Enjoyable experience and would return.
