We loved it. Found it my mistake walking the town. They have pizza but we had the Meatballs. Really good appetizer. Great bartenders that gave some ideas where to go. Would recommend. Only issue not sure if they are handicap accessible. We would diffently return.

Really good burguer and sandwiches. The place is nice and it is located in the downtown. Affordable price in Portsmouth.

We have eaten at the Gas Light several times, but not for a year or so. The atmosphere and service was as we remembered it, but the food was a disappointment. I had prime rib, which was tender but tasteless. The Brussels sprouts had just...More

Crust was perfect- thin, but not cracker-thin. Great flavor. Had a 12" Farmers Market pizza - bacon, ham, pepperoni and sweet sausage. Tasted great and was plenty for 2 people. Nice beer selection and pizza was served relatively quickly.

Stopped by for pizza and wings tonight. Pizza was great as always but the wings might have been the best ever.

Good pizza for takeout - pricey, but good/flavorful. Caesar salad was not pre-tossed with dressing, but was fresh and decent size. With all of the hotels and tourists in the area, would be convenient if they had 2-liters of soda available for takeout as well....More

A fun pizza house in downtown Portsmouth--the pizza is nothings special, compared to other Portsmouth pizza joints--made to order-slow service

Such a cute place with great decor. The monster Bloody Mary was outstanding but dirty martini was too heavy on the olive juice. Didn’t have any food but the nachos and wings my neighbor had looked unappealing.

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.
