Pub fare tends to consist of simple comfort food, with quantity sometimes superseding quality. However, if you travel 30 miles outside Boston to the North Shore town of Ipswich, you’re in for a pleasant – and scrumptious – surprise.

Locals already know how delicious the food is at Choate Bridge Pub and there’s sometimes a line for a table. Here, good things truly do come to those who wait.

This is a cash-only joint, so bear that in mind before you stop by. Choate Bridge Pub is open daily from 11:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. The pub is located at 3 South Main Street, Ipswich.
