Was there for dinner on a Saturday night after happy hour at the bech on Plum Island. The wait was only about minutes. All four of us got the award winning clam chowder. One person wondered is there was a little lemon in the chowder! Two people got the baked lobster pie and were very happy. I got the fried... More

My wife and I decided to take a couple we were staying with to dinner at the Galley. The restaurant is spacious, with indoor or outdoor seating. Our friends ordered Lobster roll and a salad, while we decided on the boiled lobster dinners. At $20, we couldn't believe the size of the dinner, with whole lobsters, salads and choice of... More

Enjoyed a lunch on Saturday with group of six adults, outside on the deck. After a short wait, we went outside. The grilled Ahi Tuna sandwich was very good- a bit messy so I switched to using my fork. The accompanying french fires were hot and delicious. I usually don't order them, so they were worth the calories. My husband... More

Crab Shack in Wollaston quality food in a more upscale environment. I had fried shrimp withe coleslaw and fries and it was very much an "every seafood restaurant" experience - which was satisfying to me. Lovely view, but it was too hot and humid to eat outside (although the dining room was uncomfortably hot as well).

A local gave us the tip to try this place. Well, it is a little out of the way, it looks a little dated, but the food was very good. All seven of us had a different dish - every single person liked his/her choice. We were all served at the same time: all dishes perfectly cooked and hot. Waitress... More

This place has absolutely outlived its usefulness, and is apparently living on past laurels. One would think that it is nearly impossible to screw up a basic burger, but they managed to. Dry and tasteless, obviously right out of the freezer, I couldn't even eat it. In retrospect I should have sent it back instead of just leaving, vowing never... More

Great service and we had a window seat, so good views. Conveniently located on Water St a bit down the road from the excitement of center of town. Lunch Menu reasonable and plenty. Pricing seemed fair for early August.

A great find in Newburyport and open all-year round, the Starboard Gallery overlooks the lovely Merrimack river and offers a wide variety of seafood (fried or broiled), steaks, 'burgers, surf 'n' turf and chicken at very reasonable and honest prices. Check- out their luncheon specials for added value: my wife and I enjoyed a cup of clam chowder, lobster chowder,... More

First time here. The service and food were good. However for $21.99 the lobster roll had a little lettuce and they piled it up in the middle so it looked like a lot more. There was roughly 4 ounces. I have had one for that price at Jamies In Whitman,MA, for the same price in a huge sub roll ,... More

Very nice service from friendly waitresses and waiters. Outstanding fish and chips, clams and linguini w/ clams. Beautiful weather to sit outside overlooking Newburyport Harbor. Wonderful Downtown for shopping afterwards; lots of cute little shops to explore. Great place!
