The best lobster roll I've ever had, including Maine. An absolute must to visit. If you don't like lobster, there are several other choices. Great fries. Fairly quick table service. Located just south of Portsmouth on Route 1, near beautiful beaches.

This is a a fast food restaurant, don't expect great ambiance. The lobster roll is served on a toasted buttered bread, with probably the best french fries I ever had. The Ice cream was also very good.

So many people rant and rave about Beach Plum. It’s a grill and ice cream joint that also serves lobster rolls. It’s ok. Sorry wish I could say more.
