A large'ish restaurant, just off the main drag on one of the old streets, utterly convenient to Newburyport's small but nice downtown area (lots of stores; easy walking and close to the riverfront walk). Not the fastest service in the world so be patient, but...More

This is a delightful eatery in an old building with a seaport atmosphere. Service and food were both above average and the prices are reasonable. Parking is an issue as their dedicated lot was full at 5:15 on a weekday afternoon. Recommended nonetheless

Easy parking, great service. Lots of beers to choose from. Dinner menu has many very nice dishes, everyone in our party very happy with their choices. Portions are generous, so we didn't have room for dessert.

This was our first visit, Sunday night. We just ordered a couple appetizers and clam chowder, beer. The chowder was a little different, but quite good, lots of clams. The fried chicken tenders were great, very filling. Fried brussel sprouts were okay - prefer broiled....More

I love the Grog because it's exactly what it should be - a comfortable, historical tavern with good beer and above average food. You can easily imagine patrons sitting around this same nautical bar 200 years ago swapping stories and enjoying a drink or two....More

Living in town for many years, the Grog is a staple. Always a go-to consistent and great hometown pub. The lobster bisque is the best ever. Great $1 oysters and beers on tap.
