“We love the Purple Urchin!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

Definitely the best place on Hampton Beach as far as food, atmosphere and service are concerned. The menu is extensive and it is more than just chicken fingers and fries. The dinner entrees are delicious and the drinks are yummy too! The owners are great and want to make sure that everyone is enjoying themselves. It feels like an escape from the hustle and bustle of the strip.

“"People watching paradise"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

A restaurant on the second floor of the boardwalk. Everyone always trying to be seated next to the rail and people watch. On wednesday's you also get to enjoy a concert directly across the street. The food is good, service is the best and all worth the wait.
