Scampi's is a regular favorite of our family. They have consistently high quality seafood and American fare. The quantity is also generous and usually means leftovers for the next day. The servers have all been there for a while and are very good. We highly recommend this restaurant. It is a nice touch of class for Portsmouth!

Before it closed I had been there with family and friends several times. The restaurant closed for several months and when it reopened we couldn't get a handle on times. Was there for lunch today and it was outstanding. Waitress was excellent and the food fresh and beautifully presented. Loved the power greens. Cheers! L

We visit Rhode Island every year and a visit to Scampi's is a must. Its waterfront location is great as is the food and service. You can sit outside and watch the sunset or sit inside and listen to great entertainment.

We happened upon Scampi about 5 years ago by doing a Google Search. It has been a consistent wonderful find. We've only visited in the summer as the outside setting is special. Scampi sits between 2 water views. High tables & chairs give you the chance to see both views at once. Regulars always get the best seats! The owner... More

We went there on the recommendation of our motel and we were favorably impressed. The restaurant is on a narrow strip of land with a very nice view of the water. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and the staff was pleasant and efficient. My wife had the fisherman's platter and I had scallops, both very good--lightly fried and really... More

These are just about the best stuff is you're going to get. Chunks of Chlorine! And the best buffalo chicken dip I've ever had in my life. The bar staff is always great and there's always a positive vibe in the dining room. My family will continue to go there for a long time I'm sure
