Went here for lunch the other day...which quickly turned into a few beers and not doing much else the rest of the day. They have a HUGE local tap list that's worth checking out.

If you visit Newburyport you must stop by The Grog for a brew and a bite. Plenty of "atmosphere" in a rather cozy old-time-feeling pub. Nice bar. Place gets crowded fast, but that's part of its charm.

We ate here several times as part of a large group and in smaller numbers. Grog catered well for us on all occasions. My faves were the salads and the lobster bisque; the latter only narrowly pipped to 'best dish of the trip' by a place in Boston.

We shared a salad with watermelon, avocado & jicama which was delicious. I had scrod with quinoa & baby greens. It had a chipotle sauce which was the best part as it perfectly complimented the flakey fish. Seafood casserole also was selected at our table. Perfect even for one doesn't like 'fishy' tasting fish.

Great, food, good selection of beer on tap, music, and seating at the bar or at tables. Fun atmosphere. Dress up, dress down, anything goes. Always a good place to meet with small or large groups as the menu caters to all.

Spacious bar, dining rooms, all Wood floors and walls interior. Comfy, cozy and good acoustic for conversation. We ate lobster club sandwiches, butternut squash ravioli, steak and seafood, chicken and salmon on pasta and appetizers all equally tasty. Service was excellent as well.

Got to town late for family dinner so we went had some drinks and snacks. Crowded but not too noisy. Nachos were great. Good enough to go for lunch the next day. Table of ten, service was very good and fast. Sandwiches were great. I had the Haddock sandwich and the group thought that was the best.

I've eaten here countless times and the food is usually quite good. Today, cold, cold food and slow, slow service. We waited a full hour for food, and it was cold. No excuse for that. We were so hungry we didn't send it back. What a disappointment!

We both had the Cuban Sandwich, very tasty, but we loved the fries, extra crunchy and onion rings, very light, just as much..great service too!
