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!

We were walking past and stopped in for dinner. Glad did! Awesome dinner--striped bass special and seafood platter! Big portions and fresh, perfectly cooked food. Great atmosphere for us--sat at bar and great service/bartender. Locals were here eating so that says a lot about it too. Will be back.

Been here many times - consistently good meal & service. Offstreet parking lot behind the restaurant - tricky getting in & out. Indoor & outdoor seating. Year round. They also cater - used them for a company party once, delivered a great buffet well within our budget.

Let me start with the staff and the view-both are excellent. However, the food leaves a lot to be desired. The clams were uninspiring-just bland. The grilled chicken Caesar wrap was not very good at all despite the claims of how fantastic it is. Note to ANY restauranteur reading this: the chicken in a wrap should be COLD in order... More

I had the sea scallops and fisherman's stew, and it was excellent. My colleague's meals weren't as good as mine, but since I'm writing the review, this is about my experience. Only slightly negative remark I must make is that the service became rather lax towards the end of the evening, and we had to wait a long while for... More

This place is a gem in a fine location but there's seldom a wait for a table. After three visits I come to suspect that there's never a wait in this trendy town because the place is a little dated and the food is uneven. Last Saturday I dined on the patio with my wife, my sister and a friend.... More

Starboard Galley has a wonderful view but more important it's food is worth going for. For lunch I had steamed mussels in white wine and Elaine had the lobster roll. The service made you feel at home. We were very much welcomed by the staff and the owner.

After an early-season day at the beach, my husband and I wandered into this restaurant for dinner on a Saturday evening. We sat on the porch overlooking the water. Our fish dinners were fresh, tasty, and overflowing. I had Cajun salmon and my husband had the beer batter special that included shrimp and haddock. Our plates were loaded with mash... More
