Went on a Sunday night, 2 couples. Place was jammed full, if u don't like a busy noisy bar atmosphere probably not for you. That being said we were seated pretty quickly, they text your phone when ready, which I liked. Jenny was our server, pleasant nice and quick can't ask for much more, answered all beer questions, though she... More

I was excited about our visit to PB. The place was packed (Sunday eve during prime time) so we weren't surprised about the 20-30 minute wait. Once we got in the service was okay at best. The beer selections were a bit lacking for someone such as myself who is not enamored of hops. The Brewer's Salad was passable (meaning... More

Went on a business dinner- big group of us and we we're given the large table at the back to accommodate our party size. The table was far too big and we couldn't really mingle as much as we would've liked. Not suitable place to bring a big group of the intent of the outing is to talk to each... More

This is exactly what you would want in a brewpub. Not too fancy, but decent pub food and some great local beers. We had a few of the beer flights, then selected our favorites. Located right in downtown portsmouth and wasn't crowded with kids, which was a plus given that we were there on a Saturday night.

We went to the Portsmouth brewery after one of our friends from the area told us to visit. I must say that it was one of the best bar food restaurants I’ve gone to! I had a huge hummus platter and mussels. I tried a few different beers and was really impressed. Our waitress was so nice too. Portsmouth Brewery... More

We ordered 3 burgers and a pulled pork sandwich with a salad starter and were very pleased with the service, food and beverages. Ambience was as to be expected on a Saturday evening...loud, boisterous and jam packed! Really enjoyed the restaurant as well as all of Portsmouth...really worth a family visit!

We have been to Portsmouth Brewery several times in the past year. We went 2 times for lunch this weekend. Excellent kids menu. Adult menu has excellent vegetarian options. Had the vegan sausage and pasta and the veggie burger. Both were excellent and made fresh. The beer selection is great as well.
