It was a very disappointing night at The Portsmouth Brewery last night. I live an hour away from Portsmouth, but each year my boyfriend and I would come to your place often during the summer and even brought friends with us who are from MA. We always stay downstairs because of their great beer, food and friendly staffs. Last night,... More

This would be a solid place to have pub fare and a great beer, but service was slow the two times we were there.

We came here during the week last week for dinner. A couple of years ago we had a bad experience just trying to get into this place... and haven't given it a thought to come back here until this week. Glad we did :) We were seated right away by a friendly hostess. We sat outside at the little patio... More

The beer is outrageously good and, as an afterthought, they have good food. Not great but good. Had the caraway pretzel and we split a pastrami sandwich. Surprisingly they served the half sandwich on two plates with a full side of fries on each plate. Both were very good. Our server was also very good. If they served MRE's this... More

My wife and I went there for dinner and I liked what we both ordered. I had the vegetarian sausage which was very tasty even if the pasta was over done. My wife had the homemade pasta and meatballs, one of which she ordered as an eggplant meatball. However, she asked for grated cheese with her dinner and it seemed... More

This was exactly what you think it would be. Pub food, burgers fried food sandwiches etc! The burgers were good the sandwiches ok not much of anything else was great. We are not big beer drinkers so it wasn't amazing for us but every other restaurant was a two hour wait so we picked here. We probably wouldn't come back.... More

Nice atmosphere and an excellent selection of beers brewed onsite. They also offer beer flights -- small sampling glasses of a number of different beers.

I just want to give a shout-out and a thanks to the Portsmouth Brewery for having the best vegetarian options in Portsmouth. Sometimes it's hard to find creative meat-free selections in coastal town so saturated with seafood, but the Brewery continues to offer inspired choices (and lots of them!). Most restaurants in the area (with the exception of a handful)... More
