It is a nice select brunch menu. Just enough choices where there is something for everyone. They have the deck enclosed with heaters so you can still watch the river go by.

Our hostess was seating us at a table in a rather noisy part of the restaurant when another person from the management stepped in, who must have been part mind reader, and she asked if we'd like to sit in a quieter, out of the way spot. The first table would have been fine, but the private one was fantastic... More

My mother lives in Newburyport Mass and whenever I visit we make a special night at Michael's for seafood. We were there for the holidays and we had a lovely meal. The food is great, service too.

We always look forward to enjoying our dinners at Michael's Harborside every year. The view of the Merrimack river all the way out to Plum island is alone worth the visit, but you get to eat great food served by friendly servers.

Michael's seems to always be a lively place to dine. Of course it doesn't hurt to have its wonderful harbor views as it sits right on the waterfront. I usually break with my normal healthy eating habits and order fried fish. The seafood is consistently good and fresh tasting. The waitstaff is very friendly even when overwhelmed for dinner as...

Stopped by for lunch with my crew while in Newburyport. Great views of the harbor added to the experience. We ate at the bar and enjoyed the wide selection of beers and ciders to go with fresh seafood entrees. Enjoyed the fish and chips and the fish tacos. The clam chowder was rich and creamy. Overall a good choice for... More

Late dinner after a long trip. Have had better lobster roll, but it was ok. Service was friendly and prompt.
