Tried curb side pick up for this restaurant. No dedicated location to park for curb side. Upon notifying the restaurant of our arrival and availability for curb side, was told by the person on the phone that they can not have their hosts walking up...and down Main St; delivering food to people. We had to come inside to obtain our food. Upon entering the restaurant 2 minutes early, was told to wait right where i was ( food was ready 4 minutes late) however what i believe to be the Manager, I was told I could not wait at the location inside I was told I had to move outside. I refused. I examined my order when it was presented to me and the Manager was irritated that i did so. We spoke a few words to each other. I am sorry that i did not continue my examination because the restaurant did not provide me one of the dishes we ordered and paid for. Beware of curb side here they have a poor and inadequate process in place to manage this. Quality of food is good.More

My husband and I went to Surf on a Saturday evening and ate outside. Reservations were not being taken; however, we only had to wait about five minutes. We ordered drinks and shared the calamari for an appetizer, which was delicious. My husband ordered the...Portuguese stew, which had clams, mussels, fish, shrimp in a broth, and which he enjoyed. I ordered Lobster Kristina. It came in the shell but was detached. It was served in a creamy sauce and was delicious.More

I was in New Hampshire for a long weekend. Not being from that area, I asked for suggestions for a wonderful seafood dinner. Hands down, everyone's recommendation was dinner at Surf! It was a great choice indeed. In light of the Covid epidemic, additional out...door seating was available; we were placed at a table that was very near the street, which was noisy at times. The daily specials were varied and thoughtfully prepared. I wish the waitress would have told us about these specials early on, as I had already ordered a starter from the menu, but would have chosen a special had I known in advance. I enjoyed a salmon special. I was not asked how I would have liked my fish prepared; although it was more well done that I routinely like, it was still flavorful. It was a truly enjoyable meal.More

My wife and I needed to escape the home cooked meals for the night. We had the Lobster Kristina and a Halibut with peach salsa special as well as the Cold Lobster cocktail. Also some Pineapple Painkillas to start. Everything was delicious. By far the...best restaurant in southern New Hampshire.More

My husband is allergic to all fish and seafood but wanted to treat me on my birthday last December. We ate at the seafood restaurant,Surf in Nashua. There were only 2 entrees on the menu he could eat. He had the crispy brussels sprouts salad...which he loved and the chicken dish (the only chicken dish) which he said was delicious . I had scallops, again wonderful, They were very careful not to contaminate his plate with fish/seafood. It is pricy for us, so I think eating there will be for special occasions only.More

Our favorite restaurant, We go here anytime we want a great meal out and also for Buck a Shuck. Lobster Tortilla is a great appetizer and all of their seafood is very fresh and uniquely prepared. Sushi here is unique and excellent.

I was in Nashua for business and stopped here on a Friday night. It was busy but they found me a seat at the raw bar / sushi bar. I had the grilled seafood trio (shrimp, fish, scallops) and it was cooked to perfection.

Surf used to be a wonderful place to visit. However, our latest visit showed a menu that has become stale, service that has dropped a notch, and food that is not worthy of the price. Also, a VERY loud atmosphere. Hopefully Surf comes back to...their previous standards.More
