Recently visited this past weekend end. Expected the to be busy during dinner time. They weren't. This concerned us a little. The premises are very nice. Clean and bright. Looks like they keep it up. Food was just OK. Started with the Loaded Nachos. The portion was huge. We got chicken but there was very little of it on the... More

The place has a lot of wood and a nice ambience. The food is good, but average. Service can be slow unless you're sitting at the bar. Prices are higher than average, even for Portsmouth. It's an 'American' Grille with an Irish name, but there's not much 'craic' here.

Hadn't been to Paddy's in over 10 years but found it to be quite good. Friendly service and solid bar food in a comfortable setting made this a nice stop for a Saturday afternoon lunch. My wife had the pastrami sandwich and I the chicken wrap and both were fresh and tasty. We'll be back again, this time sooner than... More

I have debated writing a review for this place but maybe for the benefit of the management (if they check this site), it'll help in some way. My friend was having a birthday party and invited my boyfriend as well as myself. We got there a little late and didn't order food but decided to get some drinks. He went... More

Good atmosphere on one hand; tables are well-spread out; TVs every where if you want to watch a game; more than enough pool tables with an assortment of comfy leather couches. On the other hand, the place feels like a morgue. It is dark and un-lively. I don’t want blaring music or televisions, but I always felt the few times... More

The staff is very good at Paddy's...friendly, engaging and helpful. The drinks are great and there is a pretty good beer menu. We just had snacks and they were 'OK'. I wouldn't go out of my way for the food, but I'd encourage anyone to stop in for a drink and some laughs.

We enjoyed a great lunch with excellent service. We found the place after years of going to Newington. We will definitely go again to sample some of the other menu items. Keep up the great work.

A short walk from the Residence Inn. There were people of all ages here, and families dining too. The prices are what you'd expect, and the food isn't fabulous, but it was definitely enjoyable and not at all noisy. The waitress did her job perfectly. Wouuld definitely go again if we were unlucky enough to be stuck at the Residence... More

The place has never disappointed for drinks, bar food and games. Have visited here many times. Bar food is good. Can always play pool and other bar games.
