We had lunch at the Purple Urchin a few weeks ago. It was a bit pricey but very good. The wait staff is fast and friendly and kept the drinks coming. There was no rush to leave like in some other tourist places I have been to. Over all very good... Liam & Colleen

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.
