Had a great lunch here! The appetizer antipasta was GREAT! Sat in the open air ambiance overlooking the boardwalk and really felt like we were at the beach on vacation.

Steamers were listed as special but not available because of weather. Ordered steak salad instead. Got a handful of lettuce and a couple of grape tomatoes with the steak for $15.95. Ripoff.

Wonderful experience!! My husband and I split the mussels as an appetizer and the sauce that comes with it is to die for! The salmon was very fresh, and the steak tips were great as well. Overall, wonderful place to get dinner. Staff was friendly and attentive, you just can't beat that view! Perfect for Wednesday night fireworks!!

The food was pretty tasty and the service was adequate. It's a good option for lunch or dinner. We did break a couple of the plastic utensils like another reviewer but we just laughed hysterically. This is Hampton Beach not the Ritz Carlton.

Not to mention the food was poorly... More

Have been going to the Urchin multiple times a summer for past 6 years and most recent visit this week, was as always, really fun and memorable. The staff does change over but they are always friendly and even willing to put up with that occasional intoxicated person (that just somehow seems to always in my party, lol), with style... More

While in the area for the 4th of July weekend, we ate dinner here one night. We sat up on the deck and could listen to the music from the stage which was right in front. All the food we got was excellent,mostly seafood, no complaints! Our server was great and attentive!
