Michael's Harborside is possibly the most popular restaurant in Newburyport. It offers lots of seating options (inside by the fireplace, outside on the enclosed deck, outside on the open deck next to the water, and 'Upstairs at Michael's'), lots of affordable menu choices, and the atmosphere is a dressed-up kind of casual.

The menu is extensive and offers appetizers ranging from salad to chowder to raw oysters to potato skins. Dinner salads are served in hearty portions and are reasonably priced. The entrees are creative but not far-out, including steak tips, baked haddock, and lobster ravioli with grilled shrimp and scallops. 'Fried and true' seafood selections include shrimp, scallop, haddock, clam, oyster and calamari plates. Round out your meal with such favorites as chocolate molten cake, low-carb cheesecake, or strawberry shortcake.

It is in the children's arena that Michael's falls a bit short. Due to the high number of customers, it is often a while before a waitress arrives at your table, and then you have to wait for food on top of that. Crayons are provided, but that only entertains a small child for so long.
If your child can stand the wait, however, a very balanced children's menu is a good reason to bring your family to Michael's. In addition to such entree choices as baked haddock, spaghetti, and burgers, healthy side dishes of fresh fruit, apple slices with peanut butter, and baby carrots are offered.

Theme nights have started for the fall, running from 5:00-9:00 pm. Monday is movie night, Tuesday is pasta night, Wednesday is lobster night, and don't miss '3-course Thursdays,' where you can choose a soup, chowder, or salad, one entree, and one dessert, for $15.55 (at night) or $12.22 (at lunch). Sunday, of course, is the day when brunch is served, from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm.
