A couple of possibilities are screen and minicom

screen /dev/ttyS0 19200

Or in my case (with a Keyspan USB serial adapter):

screen /dev/tty.KeySerial1

minicom is available from homebrew, ie. brew install minicom

I've not used it for a while, and it didn't work at my first attempt – probably needs some configuration.
