A good place to eat.

We enjoyed our dinner here. This evening spot has pretty good cocktails. The dinner was fair quisine for the price. There was nothing particularly remarkable. The staff worked hard and we have no complaints. It is a pub, therefore with that comes a "not so quiet" atmosphere. I would eat here again.

Cute little place but I don't think I'll be going back. The service was pretty good but the food wasn't. The soda was so expensive and the food wasn't great. There was flies EVERYWHERE! Wouldn't recommend this place.. There are many great places on the same block

I love Thurs nights at Baron's. They have fried shrimp, scallops or oysters for $.65 each. The pound of steamed shrimp is discounted also. They are large and cooked well. Great live music at 9 pm. There are other specials on the other nights. Check it out.

We are from the the South wanted to go to local pub to hang out. The service was good and they were very polite. The food was great for the price. I wish I could have spent more time there to just admire the different people coming in. It was a real man's place but my wife and daughter enjoyed... More

Figured I would give it a try after reading the reviews. First, there were a lot of flies. There is a wide array of food to choose from, waitress was very nice and attentive, but the food was not very good. It wasn't terrible, but nothing I would go back for. I think this would be more of a place... More

Went here as a group of 7 guys. We were all VERY impressed with our sweet, dainty waitress; not only did she take drink & dinner orders for 7 guys without writing Anything down (and getting everything correct!), she carried those gigantic, heavy glass beer mugs to the table like a champ! Food was delicious, and very reasonably priced! But... More

This restaurant was rustic yet appealing. The patrons were getting a little noisy but that is to be expected at a pub and eatery. I ordered a Cajun Chicken Breast sandwich and was not let down on flavor and taste! The home made French fries were delicious and they were homemade because you received the skins attached along with a... More

The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The food is consistent in quality. They have specials most days and evenings. I frequent it often. There's also music in the evening a few days of the week. It has been a cornerstone of downtown Portsmouth for many years.

Baron's is an Olde Towne institution, for good reason. Comfortable warm and homey, the food is consistently well prepared and service attentive. We enjoy sitting on the outside during warmer days and watching the busy downtown go by. Inside there is a large bar with many different sized tables down on the floor to easily accommodate parties from two to... More
