The star at Martingale Wharf is clearly the patio overlooking the Piscataqua River and its iconic tug boats - a great place to relax while gazing at this busy and ever-changing waterway. I give the food a B - good but not great. The one...More

Ate dinner one night there recently. Food was okay. The view into the river is very good, particularly if you can get a table with an umbrella outside on their deck.

Idyllic setting of good food and drinks sitting in the sun looking at the view, perfect place to spend a summer evening. Food was perfectly cooked and well presented but the setting here is the winner. If the weather is good I cannot think of...More

For a birthday celebration dinner, we chose to eat inside, but clearly, the place to be was on the other side of the window. Even on a Wednesday evening, things were hopping. The deck was crowded with people enjoying the weather with a cocktail on...More

Set right on the Portsmouth harbor with a great view. Great place for dinner or just drinks on the deck. Great decor and cool atmosphere all around. Limited menu but what food we did have was good, will definitely be back!

Love this place for the deck, but everyone I go with wants to go elsewhere for dining. Good drink menu, but the menu is limited. The oysters were good, but not the best I've had. Service okay, but the restaurant is beautiful inside and out.More
