Love the bar area!

I'm not a fan of feta cheese but I do have to say the bartender recommended the warm feta dip and it was fantastic. It was served with toasted pita wedges, olive tapenade and diced tomatoes. I really recommend you try this appetizer. Scrumptious!

Stopped by for quick bite to eat with a colleague. The inside atmosphere was very warm and inviting, despite the worn exterior. Service was friendly, although a little slow considering the hour of the day and busyness of the restaurant. My partner and I both got sandwiches. They were loaded with meat and fresh veggies, which made up for the... More

Definitely a little more upscale than the Weather Vane Restaurants and the food is much better. But I have to admit. They could of served me a boiled leather show and followed it up with one of their terrific desserts and I would of still gave it a good review. (Just kidding the food is great). But the desserts are... More

Enjoyed lunch here and it was one of the best salads I've ever had. Arugula, baby kale, quinoa, and cranberry salad. Not what I expected as the atmosphere is a bit outdated and noisy. My lunch companion had fish, and he said it was good, not great. Service adequate, not great. Staple in town and not a chain, so chances... More

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

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.
