I went to lunch at 401 a few times. While it is usually fine if you are in a group, I would avoid it is you are alone and do not like political conversations while you eat. Twice I have been alone and simply wanted to get a quick burger at the bar and then get back to work. On... More

401 is one of our favorite local hangouts! The food is delicious, the environment is cozy, and the staff is friendly. It's a little pricey, but on par with most seacoast dining. Try the mac'n'cheese, prime rib sandwich, or Thai chicken salad!

The food was very good and a true New England tavern atmosphere. It was busy but we still got in right away and service was fine. Some dishes seemed a bit pricy but the quality is good and we would definitely visit again.

We took our 2 grandsons for lunch at the 401 and were very pleased with the quality and quantity, the atmosphere and the prices were very fair. The service was a bit slow (I think our server was either new or just not paying attention) but we weren't in a terrible hurry so no big deal. The boys had the... More

The 401 is located in the heart of Hampton. The old tavern has a great feel of old and new. Walls covered with wine bottles and pictures of local and national celebrities and HD TV's covering your favorite sport team. Service is excellent, lots of beer varieties on tap, food is excellent. We love sea food and there is always... More

Off the beaten path but easy to find. This is a place the locals support and one we frequent regularly when in town. It has a certain charm about it and is not your typical trendy spot. Menu has a nice selection and the food is very good. Love the steak salad.

I had to try it...$10 lobster roll what would you actually get. A roll with lettuce to "pad" it with a lobster salad on top. Lobster salad had some celery and a bit too much mayo on it. Very few chunks of meat. Not terrible, but not great. My husband got the "add on" chowder and salad, but he did... More

Stopped here by chance, great selection of seafood dinners and vegetable selection, portions are large, the Haddock was best i ever had. Fun atmosphere for the family or couples. Complimentary hot rolls were great. Try it and you will keep going back
