“Shut this place down!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Since a local young man was killed here and there have been numerous other incidents I give this place a big thumbs down. A tough crowd hangs out there and it appears that the bar manager is not doing his job.

Portsmouth should revoke their license..

Tourists should avoid this establishment as it is dangerous. Portsmouth has many fine eating and drinking establishments but this is not one of them! It does not reflect the values of our community.

“Dangerous”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The people that frequent this bar are ruffians. On the weekends cop cars line up at closing to handle all the fights and now someone has been murdered inside...reportedly over a spilled drink. Steer clear! The locals all told me they desperately want this place to close it's doors!

“great place to get into a fight”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The last guy to get into a fight there, a few days ago, just died. This bar is a mess. It should be closed down. It is an embarrassment to the fine city of Portsmouth. Do not patronize the bar. You could get beat to death.

“Great Value/Great Stff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Not your typical sports bar, nice space, clean, open with great decor. Burgers are huge, maybe too huge, and the prices for food and drink are resonable. Staff was very friendly and the bar manager John should run for mayor.

“Typically Trashy Bar”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The Page is The Page. You don't go there expecting high class. The drinks are reasonably priced but the clientele are ... less than reputable. I have seen fights break out over absolutely nothing but I think that is par for the course here. If you like shot girls in awkward clothing (and not cream of the crop girls) then hey, you may love it.
