Starboard Galley is a fine establishment offering up classic American and New England fare. The view from the restaurant and outside deck is unbeatable in the summer (waterfront). The food is by far the most consistent in Newburyport and the staff is very friendly. If seafood if what you are looking for, no place better(steak also amazing). Staff is friendly... More

It is difficult to actually find a restaurant that is warm in the winter but this is one. My wife had a salad with shrimp. It was a large serving and she loved it. I had a lobster roll and French fries. There were nice large chunks of lobster and it was excellent. The service was prompt and courteous. We... More

I love the fisherman's stew at this solid restaurant that's near, but not on, Newburyport Harbor. It broils, bakes and fries a good range of seafood; the menu has no surprises; the food is well prepared but short of fancy, and the service is friendly but less than polished. It's an honest place and I value that. In the summer... More

We had not been in here for about 10 years. Tried it on a hunch, the service was lacking had to wait for everything. The food was good. Did not have to hear about servers bike accident.

If you want to see Boats on the Merrimack River while you eat Dinner, this is probably the place, which is next to the where the US Coast Guard started . Our waitress helped us with Lunch selections, so that we had a good experience despite the gloomy weather and no Traffic on the River .

We stopped here because we read good reviews on TripAdvisor. When we walked to the front door, we were thrilled to see the day's special, twin lobster rolls! We sat in a booth in the back with a view of the water. Unfortunately it was a grey, foggy, chilly day, but we love the water anyway. My husband had the... More

The seafood was excellent and very fresh. My husband had the fried oysters and I had the fried whole belly clams. They both tasted as if they had just been delivered from a local fishing boat, which I'm sure they were! Many selections to choose from and flexibility with substituting sides. Restaurant is spacious with nautical décor. Our waitress provided... More

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
