We were very pleased with our visit. We went on a Monday evening and had no wait. The salad bar is fabulous as is the pumpkin bread they are known for. The food came very quickly and was delicious. My husband had the clam chowder and it was nice and thick along with the shrimp trio. All were pleased with... More

We went there with friends on the recommendation of the hotel where we were staying in Portsmouth, NH. This is one of the rare places that still has a salad bar--and what a salad bar--wonderful! Their pumpkin bread is not to be missed--bought a loaf for us and one for the friends we dined with. Had drinks before dinner in... More

We had fantastic food in New England, but nothing....and I mean nothing....can compare to this place. Our server was amazing and the food was to die for. Believe what the reviews say about the pumpkin bread - OMG! We started with the fried lobster which I even enjoyed (note I am not a seafood lover). I kept my dinner to... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your dinners. However, we certainly apologize for any lack of service you may have experienced! This is certainly not our norm. Our service generally receives good "marks". (this is the same response to this review when it was posted on Yelp) More

Recommended by the Microtel that gave us coupons. We loved it. We were late diners but never rushed. Food and value was spot on! Highly recommended. We were in town for a Drag Racing School and absolutely loved this restaurant!

Seated quickly. The staff was friendly and polite. We enjoyed the salad bar. The food was good. I had the twin lobsters and it was good. We had a nice view of the water from our table.

This restaurant was recommended by someone and after a few wrong turns we did find it and we were so glad. Free Valet parking and we were seated right away. The salad bar was abundant and the lobster was fresh and very tasty. We did not have dessert so can't comment on it.

Seated quickly on a Friday night. Very friendly staff. Ample salad bar with many fresh choices. Had the twin lobsters and they were very sweet. Pecan pie was a little small but very tasty.
