We were fortunate to get a table on a busy Saturday in Newburyport and are delighted that we did.

Selected a couple of the oyster options and they were superb! Chowder is unique and some will not like it but we enjoyed it for the great flavor and the fact it is a bit different.

We went with another couple, on Monday night -Columbus Day. We had high hopes based on reviews and we were not disappointed! Everything was delicious and the service was superb. We all tried new things (only one of us is an "adventurous" diner--the rest of us usually stick with the staples and go "safe". Glad we tried new things!! Oysters "buck a shuck" were delicious. Shrimp were very large and perfectly cooked and chilled. Crudo was beautifully plated and very good. Carrot cardamom soup-looked heavy but was not, it was delicious. Crab on a waffle-sounded interesting and it was!
All around a delicious dinner!

Lunched at Brine with my BFF’s. It was loud and raucous when we arrived (small space), but quieted down as we were on the late side. The food was delicious - fresh and well-prepared. We hand the clam/pork belly chowder, crispy deviled eggs for apps. I had the oyster roll and others had fish tacos! It was all good!
Service was good, ambience is comfortable. Don’t hesitate to go.

Just went for the first time. Excellent service and food. Had raw oysters and crudo, recommending both. Will return.

My wife and I had dinner here with my brother and his wife. It's easy to understand why this is one of their favorite restaurants in the area. Nicely decorated, great menu choices and in our case a wonderful server who took great care of us. Just a perfect evening from their specialty cocktails to their fried oysters (not on menu but ask!). I had house made chicken sausage that was so savory and decadent that I almost licked the plate. Highly recommended. We live in Los Angeles where we have access to amazing restaurants so we know what we're looking for and this place delivers. I suggest making reservations. Very popular spot.
