My husband and I split a seafood platter that was fantastic! More than enough food for two and the seafood was very fresh and lightly breaded. Enjoyed some local beers with our food. Couldn't beat the view - great dinner spot!

This was about the 5 time we've eaten here, we have always gotten a great meal. There are a ton of restaurants in Portsmouth, but we keep coming here because the food and the service are great. My wife absolutely loves the grilled tuna, which the cook to perfection. I typically try different things. I've had the fried food and... More

A familiar and long standing favorite in Portsmouth, NH. The seafood is fresh and plentiful. Outstanding clams, scallops and lobster. The service was very good and attentive.

We stopped in for lunch after a hectic day of travel and had a great lunch. The New England clam chowder is fantastic! It is served in a coffee mug. The lobster roll was great as well. The "just lobster" was a whole lobster served with a bib and a cracker to help pull it apart. The only complaint was... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for some good seafood around the town and ended up here - we probably wouldn't have eaten here except it was a chilly night so we wanted to sit inside. The service was unbelievably fast. We ordered the special that came with a cup of chowder (delicious) and a 6" lobster roll. Everything was... More

And it is a joint...but a great location on the water. Excellent portions, great seafood, large portions. My husband loves their fried scallops. If you had a late lunch, you won't need dinner!

Very casual dining with average food. So-so service. Outside deck tables are so small that there is insufficient space to serve all food items at one time. We were a party of four seated at a table that was so small we did not have enough space to have our salads and entrees all on the table at one time.... More

Old Ferry Landing food is okay standard seaside fair. Service was efficient but not very friendly. The atmosphere outside is nice by the sea.

Our family of 4 ate lunch here. Service was good and fast. Food was average I think but worth it for the view. We ordered a clam basket, a kids meal and a lemonade and our bill was $35, not including tip.

Thank Shannon B
