We also use locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, like bread baked just for us by When Pigs Fly Bakery, breakfast sausage made for us in Vermont, local cheeses, and more. And we make all our desserts right here at the Roundabout. From scratch!

We were staying at the Western Inn which is connected to this diner so we decided to come visit, and we are glad that we did. The place is 50's themed, with the music, furniture, etc. but has flat screen TVs for watching the different sports. It is a large place as well, larger than we thought or looks. The... More

We had breakfast there Sunday morning before heading out. A little bit of a wait (15mins) but well worth it, as the food was delicious. Large portions, friendly wait-staff and a make-it-yourself Bloody Mary bar (guess its a good place if your hungover)

This diner is next to our hotel, so very easy to get too! Staff are very friendly, very attentive, they don't rush you to order, food was great, reasonably priced food and drink. Definitely worth another visit - did last night, though did take a doggy box home for toast that came with my omelette - breakfast served all day,... More

The Roundabout was located right next door to the Holiday Inn in Portsmouth where we were staying for the evening. The dining room in the hotel was closed so we opted to walk over here. This place is part of a Best Western Hotel and the insides are a classic take off from a 1950's era diner. It was a... More

I was staying at a hotel up the street and this place was both the nearest place to eat and highly recommended. Tried it for dinner and I think this is a great place. It seems that there is actually a portion of care in every meal. Try the muddy pie - a cottage/shepherd's pie idea but using pulled pork.... More

We had been to this diner a year ago and had enjoyed our experience. Went back and almost thought it was a joke when they served our kids their dinners. The chicken strips dinner was 3 tiny (not normal sized) strips of chicken with fries. The pancakes meal was 2 small pancakes with one slice of bacon. All of my... More

Went for breakfast at lunchtime. It was a Tuesday, so not crowded at all. We were seated right away. I had the breakfast sandwich, which was an over-sized croissant with a fried egg, cheese, and a thick slice of bacon. Home fries were pretty good-oven roasted, not fried. My brother had the Hash Benedict. Very happy with it. Said the... More
