“We eat here ALL the time!!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My husband and I eat here all the time!! They have excellent food and excellent drinks!!
They also have a pretty extensive gluten free menu, with two girls that have to eat gluten free, it's great that a local place like this has such an extensive menu!!

“Fine pub food with some mistakes, friendly but indifferent/sloppy service.”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Will try again, but definitely not impressed by first visit. Cold steak, average wings, oyster blt.... Not so much. The slow and inattentive service was the worst part. Also, the Bloody Mary "bar" was a total fail--room temp clamato juice, grey carrots and shriveled olives did not get us too excited.

“Comfort food.....aahhhh.”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

My girlfriend and I stop here a few times a month when we need a quick, above average meal at an affordable price and friendly service. Things to get here are the nachos, burger, grilled chicken sandwich, reuban sandwich and the coolest, biggest mashed sweet potato and black bean burrito with green and red salsa on top....for only $9.95.

Also good is the beer selection where they about 30 beers on tap and feature some of the higher alcohol micro brews. They change the selection every few months.

Don't get this confused with a special night out type of dinner but a great go 2 place when you need some food love, good drink and quick service. don't get me wrong, the food is really good and at a great value.

“Love The Grog!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I've been going to The Grog for 30 years. It's better than ever. Best lobster roll in the area. Great servers. Just a solid, fun place!

“Classic restaurant!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

When in Newburyport, one must visit the Grog, a great place serving delicious food and drink.This restaurant is a classic having been in business for about 40 years. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food is reasonable and fresh.The restaurant also has live bands performing downstairs but it costs a few dollars to go down there. Overall, a great place to eat!
