We were fortunate enough to happen upon Grog on a busy sunny Sunday, but were able to get a table. We were attracted by the menu posted outside, real British beer battered type fish and chips. They did not disappoint nor did the Haddock sandwich on a nice onion roll. Excellent cole slaw as well, but what made the meal... More

Brought a friend there for his 1st visit. Had a very extensive craft beer list, which is so important these days. We started with the buck a shuck oysters and a couple of cold ones. Friend had the fish sandwich which was impressive. My wife got the chicken soft tacos, which she liked. I ordered the French dip. Not really... More

The food at the Grog is always great. The atmosphere is unique and fun and the bartenders are fun and knowledgeable. Great place to go for a drink or food and a drink. Great place to meet up with friends. Right in the heart of Newburyport.

We used to go to the Grog back in the day for the bar and music scene, but decided to try it for a quick lunch on a recent visit to Newburyport. The place really hasn't changed much, and we were seated downstairs, which is a bit dated. But that was the only not so great thing about it. The... More

Went to the Grog for Corned Beef Dinner on St Patrick's day. We go there frequently so I knew it would be busy, it was. The dinner was very good, it always is. The reason I'm reviewing is because Jill, our server was the best we ever had there. Busy as she was and as busy as she knew she... More

Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday early afternoon. The place was busy, of course, this being a nice day in Newburyport! There was a short line for seating but the hostess was extremely slow and inefficient at handling people. There were tables available so that was not the issue. So, either the process or the person was responsible. Once... More

We stopped by for a late lunch. Good reviews on TripAdvisor and we were looking for clam chowder. The food was very tasty. My daughter said the claim chowder was excellent. The problem was our server. She must have been having a bad day. She was pulled to another table by a customer who sat down after us. She had... More

First thing I noticed was the eclectic mix of people there: older, younger, families... We could hear live music coming from (I think) downstairs. Always a nice option to find a place with live music. It was very busy the night we went but they got people seated fairly quickly. The bar had a nice vibe to it. LARGE selection... More

Great casual place in downtown Newburyport. Very good beer selection and dollar oysters at the bar every day. Food is typical pub fare, but well done. If the downstairs is crowded, try the upstairs bar.

This small, charming town near the mouth of the Merrimack River was once a maritime powerhouse that played host to a who's-who of early American luminaries. The Grog, with its cozy brick and dark hardwood surroundings, including a very lively bar, still manages to convey that mystique. And yet it is also quite up-to-date in its menu choices, and family... More
