The Grog, Newburyport 

This Newburyport institution remains, after many decades on the scene, one of the best places for a burger, over-stuffed burrito, or iconic tuxedo chicken, a creamy, comforting pasta dish that we hope never exit the permanent menu. Home to musical interludes on the weekends in its legendary downstairs cabaret, the Grog persists as Newburyport’s most beloved tavern for a pint and a cozy meal, irrespective of the season. 13 Middle St., Newburyport, 978-465-8008,

Agawam Diner, Rowley 

Rowley’s historic diner car, circa 1940, is home to near-daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner, all comfort-food style. In addition to daily specials, which reflect New England dining traditions—think American chop suey, traditional boiled dinners, and baked haddock—hungry diners can expect homemade soups and chowders, native fried clams, and all manner of throwbacks, including liver and onions. 166 Newburyport Turnpike Junction, Rowley, 978-948-7780,
