Casual dining. Staff is great. Patrons are happy and everyone chats and has a good time. Food is very good. The view is really neat. Outdoor and covered seating at the bar with open views. Will go back again when I visit Portsmouth.

Starring the waterfront, with tug boats and cries of the seagulls, enjoy your lunch or dinner inches from the water in downtown Portsmouth. They have heaters to extend the season. This eatery is the most casual of the restaurants on the decks but the food...More
