A Newburyport Institution

Welcome to The Port Tavern

Located in Newburyport’s quaint downtown area, The Port Tavern was established in 2009 providing great food and entertainment for locals and visitors alike. We are a neighborhood restaurant & pub offering outdoor seating when the weather is warm and a fireplace inside for those crisp New England nights. We provide full lunch and dinner menus 7 days a week until 10pm.

We carry an extensive beer selection (31 drafts), showcasing great local brews alongside specialty imports from around the world, as well as a large number of single malt whiskies and a unique wine list. The Port Tavern is committed to total satisfaction of our neighbors and guests.

We pride ourselves on being an integral part of the community. Tuesday Trivia tests your wits while Wednesday’s Irish Seisiún keeps your toes tapping. For those of you looking for the big game, we have 8 flat screen TV’s as well as a giant 70 inch hi-def tv. If you’re looking for something more private, contact our function manager to make arrangements to host your event in our intimate function room.

Check out our upcoming events for live acoustic entertainment and stop by today, have a bite and a pint, and find out why The Port Tavern has become one of Greater Newburyport’s favorite restaurants and pubs.


Our comfortable yet classy upstairs lounge is the perfect place to host your bridal or baby shower, business meeting or get together.
