Orders wrong, long wait, poor quality of food. Who uses frozen preformed beef for patties and once the junk was scrapped off only to find one set of grill marks on only one side? A tasteless piece of cardboard on a bun. $128 for four...More

Stopped in here for a late dinner on a recent trip to Portsmouth - delicious pizza, great salad and a large beer selection. Really good service in a neat old historical building. What more could you ask for.

Yes, we do still have our pizza buffet. It's $7.99, runs from 11:30am - 2pm, Monday - Friday excluding holidays and major snow storms (due to lack of staffing).

Yup, If it's a holiday weekend, you most likely will have to wait for a table. You can take a seat, if one is available, at the bar while you wait for a table. Non holiday weekends are usually good up to about 4:30 - 5:00.
