We are locals and have been here often. They have a great Prime Rib and very good pizza. You really can't beat the prices but they are cash only. We would probably eat here more but it is always tough to get a seat.

Great clams!!! Huge portions!!! Awful service!!! Now I remember why I don’t come here more often. The seafood is excellent. But the waitstaff is miserable. No one greats you. No one looks at you. They all look like they hate their job. Better plan in...More

I love the Choate Bridge Pub. The food is consistently quality and abundant. Service is good and always friendly. Sometimes it's hard to find a seat, but it's worth the wait.

If you like a local pub atmosphere, this is the place. There's also a small dining room if you'd rather sit and talk away from the bar. There's nothing very fancy about the trappings but the food was excellent.

We loved going to Choate Bridge Pub for dinner two nights in a row! Marty was our waitress both nights. She even remembered our names and that we both wanted "water, no ice" the second night! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was fun...More
