Great local spot. Whenever I am in town I try to stop in. Food and service is always great. Make sure you check the board for the daily specials. That being said, you can never go wrong with the Pub Burger.

If your interested in fried clams that's the place to go. We ordered the app and split it. I saw 4 other couples doing the same. I don't think one person could finish the whole order! The fried scallops also great!

The Choate Bridge Pub is a treasure. The food is fresh. The portions are abundant. The beer is cold and the staff is friendly. I had the pizza with bacon and chicken. It was excellent. My wife had a grilled chicken sandwich. We shared fish chowder prior to the meal. It was hot and chock full of fish. We have... More

Great food, large portions,inexpensive, fantastic staff with new seating to bring it more up to date but still a real "pub".

Good food at the Choate Bridge Pub. Burgers are best. Fried clams are a little watery; hope they are not frozen in the homeland of the soft shell clam. All the clams in Ipswich are fried; cannot buy a steamer in any of the restaurants. The owner/manager of the Choate Bridge Pub is rude and a jerk.

Enjoyed this place after a day at the beach. The food was really good. Baked Haddock was extremely fresh. Portions are large. Apple crisp was really enjoyable! Left feeling very satisfied. Waitstaff very friendly and attentive. It's clearly a popular spot. They don't take credit card but have an ATM on site. Comfortable down to earth atmosphere with reasonable prices.... More

This is clearly a bar and it offers bar food. The meal was huge--beyond my ability to finish. The staff was attentive.

This pub is an institution in Ipswich, and I have been going there for thirty years. They have fast and friendly service, with excellent food and a great selection of beer and wine etc.

Love sitting at the bar and having a cold beer and pizza. Other food is great too but pizza is really good. Bartenders (who are always women) are great. Fun place. Cash only

Went to dinner at Choate Bridge on the recommendation of our concierge when my spouse and I wanted a burger at a spot that was low key and local. Turned out to be the perfect spot! Easy parking nearby, laid back pub atmosphere and menu, and terrific service. We snagged a table overlooking the busy Main Street, quickly ordered and... More
