Super food, fun location and great service!

Relied on Trip Advisor to recommend somewhere in Portsmouth. Where else to smell the salty sea air, see tugboats than at 'The Old Ferry Landing'.

Best Lobster Roll ever!! Nice view of river. Casual yet very nice! We sat on the deck outside. If you are looking to mingle with other tourists this is the place for you as the tables are in very close proximity to each other. The place is alive and the sounds of the harbor add to the quaintness! Highly recommended!

A waterfront place to eat. My clams were good, but my husband's tuna was dry. The staff were very pleasant and the service was good.

When there for lobster and was not disappointed. It was sweet and delicious, There waiter even cracked it a little for me to make it easier to break apart. I was told this was the best place for lobster and it is the truth.

Reviewed here three years ago, and now have to downgrade from 4* to 3, because nothing changes here. The view is gorgeous and the food is meh … Fried zucchini was good, had a swordfish sandwich that was decent except for the slice of tomato that was barely orange. C'mon guys … in the height of summer produce it's inexcusable... More

We stopped there on our way to Maine from Boston. We sat on the deck that overlooks the harbor. It is very nice view for a fairly simply place. The "shack" feel is accentuated by the plastic chairs and old wooden table. The service is fast and "okay". The place is quite cramped so I would recommend against taking kids... More

In a town with 89 restaurants, you have to be good to stay in business. The location is right on the river on the border of New Hampshire and Maine. The veggie kabob, haddock and kids chicken meals were all good.

We had dinner on a Friday evening. If you like fried seafood with a great view, this place is perfect. Right on the water overlooking 3 massive tugboats. The mixed drinks are very good and strong.

We love the deck and view, the owners have packed in a lot more seating into a very cramped area. The food is good, the fish is fresh and cooked well. The portions are a bit light and the two way combo (scallops and haddock) for 30 dollars I would hope to have more that four scallops and a a... More

Another annual visit and still the same good meal. Very consistent - four meals with excellent food all around. Meal one was a fried clam basket with fries. Clams were lightly battered, small in size big on flavor. Second meal was shrimp, lobster a three cheese ravioli (a special) with garlic, lemon and champagne sauce. Equally delicious! Broiled haddock with... More
