Most of us are far more likely to head to the local pub for a quick bite out on a weeknight than try to angle for a reservation at the fancy French place downtown. Luckily, Massachusetts is packed with small-town joints that offer a casual vibe with plenty of good food on the menu. The Grog Restaurant in Newburyport is one such spot, and it’s definitely worth checking out for its comfy atmosphere and surprisingly tasty fare.

The Grog Restaurant looks like any other small town joint, but the food is shockingly good. It can be found at 13 Middle St., Newburyport, MA. For more hidden dining gems in Massachusetts, check out our list here.
