I had called in an order almost an hour in advance because last summer we waited 45 minutes for sandwiches to take to the beach..when I arrived there was no line so I approached the register. 3 people working in that area and not one...of them asked if they could help me. Another customer approached the counter and the teenage girl began ringing her up. At that point point I asked the male teenage employee of i could pick up an order. He went and got my sandwich and placed it on the counter. The girl asked if I'd paid for it and when I said I hadn't she looked at me blankly and asked if I was paying by card. I said I was not. She then ignored me some more. Finally a couple minutes later i asked the male teen if I could please pay someone and take my sandwich. Someone there needs to be teaching these kids customer service skills!!!!!More

Was stopping by for a quick couple of sandwiches and chowdah to go. If the sandwich bread I had any taste , I could not detect it. Tossed half away after eating Muffalotto, Otherwise , definitely have the chowdah.

The sandwiches and salads are good but the cookies are really where it's at. They're obviously homemade and fresh, and BIG! The staff is friendly and the menu is unique and fresh.

I've tried half a dozen of their sandwich concoctions and each has become a favorite. While you wait, there is an interesting mix of gourmet food stuffs and beverages to peruse.

Ordered the Gobbler and was not disappointed. We always make a point of ordering Thanksgiving style sandwiches whenever they are available and this one is, hands down, the best we've ever had. Friendly staff, prompt and polite service, and they have Moxie. Love!

The sandwiches here are delicious, although in my opinion overpriced. (A small tuna roll up with lettuce and tomato was almost $10). The food is definitely fresh, and the friends I was with also enjoyed their sandwiches. They also sell wine and soda. I feel...like the store is lacking something but am not sure what it is exactly.More

The Ipswich River General Store is a great place to get deli salads and sandwiches on your way to the beach. The food is always fresh and made with quality ingredients. The daily dinner special is posted on a blackboard in front of the store...and it's so convenient to pick up on the way home. Online ordering is recommended to insure availability. Everything is homemade and delicious.More

I ordered salads from this deli for a large family picnic after seeing their on-line catering menu. The quality of their products proved to be excellent. You can trust these folks!

Ipswich River General Store is our "go to" spot when we head up from Boston for an afternoon at Crane Beach. They offer a wide range of sandwiches, wraps and salads. Daily specials are posted on a blackboard. Everything is fresh and made-to-order. The Ipswich...River Italian and the Horseradish Roast Beef Wrap are favorites. Don't pass up the Key Lime pie when it's available. Their carrot cake and cookies are also worth checking out. The parking lot can get crowded around lunch time, but you can usually slip into a spot a block away at the public boat launch.More
