you should try to get to Starboard, especially on Mon. or Tues. Where can you get TWIN lobsters for $14.99??? We started with a huge, fresh Caesar salad and then came our precious entrees. The lobsters were fresh, and delicious. One of my lobster claws was so sweet, it was memorable! Also enjoyed dining with the locals who know a bargain and occupied the booths. The service staff were all really nice, friendly, and efficient.

We visited here soon after flying the Atlantic and were not very hungry, but their clam chowder is excellent and the view of the estuary pleasing. You can have the chowdah in a cup, a bowl, or in a hollowed-out bread roll - we chose the roll and were not disappointed. After this we found we had a little more room than we thought and managed to share a plate of fried clams - also excellent.

Food was good, service was also good. View of the water over parking lot is nice. Have had two good meals at this restaurant.

Starboard Galley has a great location downtown Newburyport. There is parking out back and deck seating overlooking the parking lot with a little water view. The restaurant is old and needs some updating.
The day we were there was a nice summer day at the height of tourist season and it was very quiet.. We all had seafood which was overcooked; dry fish, dry fried clams and shrimp. Could have lived with that but the place is full of flies. The manager very gallantly tried to remove them from the window near our table, but then more would arrive. Unfortunately, it was disgusting.
The bright side was the service. Our waitress was fabulous, and her trainee was equally attentive. However, won't return.

A local favorite restaurant with great views, better prices than other places in town. Food is good, twin lobster special for 14.99$ a great deal. But I have to agree with the other reviewers about the service. Really a bunch of inexperienced servers and staff. Either the staff turns over a lot and everyone is new or they are just inexperienced. We go for the view of the ocean and the outdoor seating, perhaps not as nice as the view at the black cow but very close!
