We stopped in Portsmouth on a busy Friday night on Columbus Day weekend, forgetting how crowded most of the restaurants would be, and not having made a reservation anywhere.
After walking several blocks and almost giving up we were enticed by the inviting smells and ambiance emanating from this eatery. We didn't hold out much hope of being seated and thought it might be too fancy for our travel clothes, but we were welcomed to sit at a front window table downstairs, where there are several small tables, just right for hosting walk-ins off the cool, rainy Main Street.
Both of our entrees were cooked to perfection in different and delicious ways, and the presentations were mouth-watering. I was happy to enjoy one more amazing lobster roll before leaving New England, one prepared unlike any I'd ever had.
On our next trip to Portsmouth we'll make reservations so we can enjoy the larger upstairs space with corner views from the windows.
