We decided to go here after reading the rave reviews. In my opinion it didn’t live up to expectations. My BLT was just okay. My husbands salad was okay. The man who took our order seemed impatient bordering on grouchy. The music playing was annoying....More

This place was great - I wandered in not too much before their closing time and everyone was very friendly and attentive. Prices are right on, and my sandwich was fresh and very tasty! It’s a great location by the port and is very tourist-friendly....More

Nothing but the best for quality of food here. Breakfast or lunch - have always had an amazing meal. The owner seems to be hot and cold depending on the day but that doesn't take away from the food. It's the best meal in town.

Tese guys make great sandwiches, provide excellent service. Plus they are very close to the river walk and the park, if you wish to have a picnic outside.

Their corn chowder and the West Newbury Sandwich are my favorites. Hearty portions and lots of selection for a great breakfast or lunch. Located close to the Merrimac River near the park.

Good question. I really don't know. You might ask Port City Sandwich directly. I don't remember seeing any listed.

There are about 5-7 tables inside and there are also picnic tables about 100 yards away on the boardwalk.
