Great beer selection

Only had the beer flights that were available - we had such a great server and the food that was coming out looked great and good for families too.

Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to fully experience the Pub. There are two floors. Upstairs has a bar but is more of a restaurant feel. It looked very nice. It seemed to be popular with adults seeking a nice sit down meal with some atmosphere. The basement, is well, a basement. There are pool tables and one TV. Seems... More

Not sure if restaurant week was overwhelming the kitchen, but my meal was not of the quality I was used to. I asked if I could choose the entree from the restaurant week menu because I don't ordinarily eat three courses. The answer was a firm no. So because I wanted that entree, I ordered the three course special. The... More

Went bar hopping and this was our first stop. Went in and tried a few different beers and they were all good. Staff is very friendly.

My hubby, loves beer especially local breweries and dark beers and IPA's. The Brewery is one of his fav spots on the Seacoast. He can try a flight or one of their many draft darks. Not a beer drinker myself, so I get a cocktail or glass of wine. They have a good selection of both. The food is ok.... More

We are from Michigan, a huge craft beer mecca, so we like to look for other breweries when we travel. Walked into this place, we had great service and were offered the chance to try anything we wanted before deciding. Opted for an off-menu Citra Saison which was amazing, as well as a delicious IPA. We had eaten earlier so... More

This was our first trip to Portsmouth. We stopped in this beautiful, hip, fun town on our way to Ogunquit, Maine. It was lunch time and we were so lucky to find this incredible restaurant! The menu was full of wonderful choices and they offered many local dishes and specialties. I had a fresh fish sandwich and local hard cider.... More

There are probably 50 places to eat in the area but we decided to go for the Smutty Nose connection. There was a wait on a beautiful Sunday afternoon of about 25 minutes but they text you when you up. We hit a few of the many shops in the immediate area and the time flew by. Our server was... More
