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

This restaurant has recently reopened with a new owner and new chef. The interior is its same pleasant self. That is where the similarity stops. There is a new owner and chef. I have to say unfortunately that the once delicious food is no longer and we were shocked that the food was so bad now. We had the calamari... More

This is one of the only places in Portsmouth that I could find raw little neck clams, and they were very fresh, one of them though was definitely rotten or something, it was just plain horrible smelling, but I didn't say anything because the ambience and staff made up for it, the fish and chips arent anything to write home...

This is a standard Rhode Island seafood restaurant. They serve chowders, scampi.or fish (broiled, baked, or fried) and assorted sandwiches. You can get chicken or beef, but why would you want to? They have a full bar and usually have a quiet crowd at the bar in the evening. Locals go there because it's convenient and because it's out of... More

Yesterday evening about 8 pm we were returning from a wonderful hot summer day at the tennis tournament in Newport. We decided to drop by Anthony's Seafood in Middletown, one of our favorites. There was a long line (not unusual) and we were told the wait would be at least 40 minutes. We had had our hearts set on having... More

I've never been here before, but this place was a favorite of my late sister in law. My wife and I visited about 6:30 on a Sunday night, got seated right away. We ordered Jonathan's Calamari as an appetizer and it was HUGE, big enough for 2 people, slightly spicy and very tasty. We followed up with 2 cups of... More
