My first experience of this restaurant was a fantastic one. The prices are fairly reasonable, for their meals and their beverages. Also there are pool tables, shuffle board tables and card tables as well so there's always something to do. The service is very friendly and hospitable. They have a very large bar and you can hold big gatherings ahead... More

For a comfortable warm feeling...this is the place. The food is solid with some ups and downs. Stick to the basic burgers and the salads were outstanding. White wine glasses could have been larger compared to red wine. I know I know...but for $8 per glass there should be a balance of amounts. I envied the red wine drinkers! No... More

I have eaten at Paddy's a few times when I travel to work in the Portsmouth/Pease area. The food is always good and servers very courteous. The one gripe I have is that they are slow with lunch service. Paddy's isn't the best place to go if you have an hour lunch break. In all fairness though, the food is... More

We came in Saturday night at 6 pm and the place was dead. We sat down in the dining room and had dinner, the food was decent. The service was terrible. She was rushing us the entire time, we thought maybe her shift was over. We finished dinner and my husband wanted dessert, she never even asked if he wanted... More

Visited right after work, around 4:45. Sat at the large bar. Clam chowder and calamari were very good. Bartender attentive and nice. Planning on returning with friends later this week.

My family has been going to Padd's for the past year. The food is OK, nothing special. The last two visits we have eaten outside and the service was very POOR.....last night we had dinner and we had a young lady who only came out once to check on us and all of our drinks were gone. When she came... More

Recently visited this past weekend end. Expected the to be busy during dinner time. They weren't. This concerned us a little. The premises are very nice. Clean and bright. Looks like they keep it up. Food was just OK. Started with the Loaded Nachos. The portion was huge. We got chicken but there was very little of it on the... More

The place has a lot of wood and a nice ambience. The food is good, but average. Service can be slow unless you're sitting at the bar. Prices are higher than average, even for Portsmouth. It's an 'American' Grille with an Irish name, but there's not much 'craic' here.

Thank NHjo
