Went here a couple times during a recent business trip. Once for lunch and once for dinner. The food was good, had a good selection of local beers, and the service was spot on.

Sitting on the patio is definitely a good choice. The view from the patio is fantastic and would put you in a good mood right away. We ordered lobster and seafood pasta, and both of them were fresh and tasty. A good restaurant in Newburyport.

Upper deck has beautiful view while enjoying clam chowder, whole belly clams and many other items. Something for everyone on this menu and great variety of "adult beverages". Go out on the deck unless the weather is terrible!
