Great seafood and chowder

My wife and I have been going here for years and years. The fried haddock, fried clams and clam chowder are great. Service can be spotty I'd highly recommend it.

Great afternoon stop for dessert and coffee. Beautiful dessert case with a variety of choices, but plenty of chocolate. The coffee was good also, hot and tasty. Not bitter.

Went for restaurant week but the items available were not attractive to us, so we ordered off the menu. First, restaurant was clean, well staffed and people were pleasant, we were in early, around 5pm. Ordered several appetizers, mussel special was very good, crab and spinach dip was average, chowder very good, sushi tuna was bland also had a greek... More

We love picking up Popovers and dessert from here! A lot of choices but our standard favorites are the rose cake, eClair, and the carrot cake.

Luncheon's at the Galley Hatch are a far cry from a Special Event meal. I understand the need of a restaurant to make money from each meal served but the luncheon meals are ill prepared for the dollars spent. My wife had the Roast beef Sandwich for a hefty $13.00 and I had Burgundy Beef for another hefty $14.00. My... More

This place was recommended to us, and it was a little drive from Portsmouth but well worth it. It has a cozy feel, with a little seating area around a fireplace if you have to wait to be seated. There is a small gift shop and bakery that has unique items. The food was very good, unique choices as well,... More

The Galley Hatch has plenty to offer! A nice breakfast venue, with leather seating, fireplace, and coffee bar. Want to pick up some treats to go ? Just peek in the pastry display cases- what a feast of cookies, pastries, and more ! Need a Birthday Cake? You've found the right place. A hostess gift ? There are plenty of... More

Been coming here for years & years with friends for dinners & a once per year business lunch! LOVE their haddock sandwich, better than most seafood restaurants in the area, AND they will let you get half French fries and half onion rings!

Great bar menu and prices. Yummy popovers in their little Café. Best place for a seafood stuffed lobster.

As a fellow server, I do my best to give the benefit of the doubt if the service isn't too great, but today there were no exceptions. Our server, Anna, not only neglected our empty drinks for 20 minutes, but she seemed to disregard us in general. The buffalo fingers came out completely cold, and when asked to be heated... More
