Michael’s Harborside was recently voted Newburyport’s best waterview restaurant by readers of Northshore Magazine. Overlooking the Merrimac River, Michael’s is known for its fresh seafood and lively atmosphere. It is a favorite of locals who dine out often, boaters staying at one of the many nearby marinas, and tourists who come from all over New England, Canada and even farther away to get a true taste of New England. Guests delight in Michael’s signature cocktails and treat themselves to some of the best seafood and lobster in New England, including Michael’s famous lobster rolls and fish tacos, not to mention juicy burgers and steaks.
During the warmer months, diners flock to The Landing, Michael’s outdoor bar and deck, for cocktails, live music, and a seasonal raw bar. The upstairs sports bar welcomes Patriots, Bruins and Red Sox fans and friends to watch the game on huge flat-screen TVs. And this family-friendly restaurant hosts parties and groups of all sizes for special occasions.
