We stayed in this area and each night headed downtown to eat. After walking around, checking out menus and the "views". We got in our car and drove back to the Dinnerhorn. Excellent food, customer service and location was great. I'm still missing the coconut Shrimp. Go here, you will not be sorry.

Today we, my wife and I along with my sister in law and brother in law had a wonderful lunch at the Dinnerhorn as they ventured up from Stow, Mass to treat me to a birthday meal if I would choose the restaurant. Between the four of us we had three different meals off the luncheon menu. Two of us... More

After giving up trying to find a parking spot in downtown Portsmouth for dinner, we headed south and found the Dinnerhorn. What a find! Everything was cooked perfectly. I thoroughly enjoyed my baked stuffed shrimp and my husband loved his fried scallops. They were so flavorful, I ordered them the next night. They were quite possibly the best fried scallops... More

We stopped at this place because the name was interesting and different. It had an old fashioned homey atmosphere. Service was great without being rushed. I chose a luncheon offering of a half sandwich and a cup of soup. The clam chowder was very, very tasty. It had a hint of smoky flavor from the bacon. The consistency was good...not... More

The food here I would put up against any place. The service was excellent, 14 of us went there last night, not one person had a complaint, I have never seen such good service, and the price is reasonable. Cannot say enough about it.

There are actually 2 restaurants here. The front is a nice restaurant with a varied menu. The atmosphere is quiet with candlelight. If it's the weekend, I like the prime rib but I've never had a bad meal. My daughter is fond of the homemade soups at lunchtime. Around the back is more of a casual atmosphere. There is a... More

A friend recommended this restaurant and was happy he did. The freshest seafood. The spicy mussels appetizer was so good. Enjoyed the stuffed scrod with Newburgh sauce. Service was very good and will be back.

The Bratskellar serves the best Pizza in the area. They are always consistent with their excellent food and great service!! The old world pub atmosphere just adds to their charm. It's a great place to go and meet up with friends in a laid back atmosphere where you aren't rushed out the door as soon as you are finished eating.

The food at Dinnerhorn is out of this world. I had pan seared halubut on a buttrrnut dquash rissotto. My husband had the prime rib. Both were delicious/ cooked to perfection. The portions were good and the prices fair. Will definitely keep this one in mind for next year' s trip up to Portsmouth.
