We enjoyed eating in this restaurant which was right on the waterfront. You could see the boats in the harbor. Our food was delicious and served timely. I had a delicious Lobster roll. It was very pleasant that day and breezy. What a nice experience!!

The Old Ferry Landing is a family run, casual dining business with an amazing view of the water. The food is of high quality and the service is friendly and attentive. Visit John Kelly at the bar, and enjoy Jimmy Juice!

While in Portsmouth we stopped by for lunch on a friend's recommendation but really were not that impressed. Location is cool on the water with the tug boats right there and some great outdoor seating but many things really made this just an average stop. Wait staff is not particularly good. Food is okay with nothing sticking out. Lobster rolls... More

The only thing special about this place is the nice view. Tables are extremely small and they pack people in. For the price of the food, there are better places to get your seafood satisfied. Our family of four had a bill over $100 and no one had anything from the bar. The fish and chips were similar to what... More

We both had fried haddock sandwiches which were quite tasty. Great fries, fast service, no complaints.

Delicious meal at the Old Ferry Landing in Portsmouth, NH. Quiet day on the waterfront, no wait (unusual) and perfect table outside on the water. Really stopped for a late afternoon Ferry Margarita (Hornito's, Cointreau, pink lemonade, and lime juice). Since we didn't sit at the bar (very small area outside and packed) we were required to order something to... More

Good local craft beer and good lobster rolls. Yummy......We sat on the outside overlooking the harbor because it was a beautiful day with temps in the low 70's.

The best lobster rolls I have ever had. Huge chucks of lobster on either a hot dog bun or hamburger bun, a view right on the water. What a place to run into for lunch. We couldn't have been any luckier and right downtown.
