The Grog

This legendary pub in Newburyport is the perfect place to hunker down on a cold winter’s day with classic pub fare—a cup of clam chowder or a plate of fish and chips. But the menu does not stop at the basics. A warm salmon and potato salad is divine. Also on offering are terrific fish tacos and standout crab cakes. The atmosphere is a classic New England–style pub: Brick walls, wood booths, and a large collection of beers on tap and by the bottle makes for a fantastic casual meeting spot.

Olde Main Street Pub

This is an easy place to set up camp with its cozy atmosphere and seriously delicious pub fare featuring twists on classic dishes. The beer-battered local haddock is perfectly done, and the steak tips are a fan favorite, as is the savory fried lollipop kale with pistachios and Parmesan cheese. Get ready to lick your fingers—the Korean-style duck wings with kimchi is the most popular item on chef Tim Caldwell’s menu.
