They certainly have a good selection of beers to choose from. The tvs are well disbursed - so this is a good spot for guys to watch a game. However, the place feels dirty, smells dirty, and is dirty. The food is what you expect in such an establishment. Probably better to just get some appetizers and beer. A good option for guys - your wife/gf probably will not want to be there.

there isnt much to dislike here. its a sports bar with lots of space. the prime pizza or whatever it is is very nice. the crust is great. service is what you expect. i have been 3 times if that tells you anything. the tv is right at the bar if you want to watch the game. its right in the center of all the action. very nice place.

This place is all about the beer. I have been here numerous times and have tried some fantastic brews and some okay food. If you love beer, this is the place for you! The appetizers are fine and the waitstaff is very friendly. I have eaten the bavarian pretzel, Poutine fries, buffalo chicken dip, onion rings and a few different types of pizza. They have all been good, but not great. There are so many fantastic restaurants in Portsmouth that my husband and I have decided we will always go here for a beer (and maybe a pretzel) before having dinner somewhere else. Have I mentioned how great the beer is?

If you love craft beer then you have to get to this restaurant. They also offer a full bar for non-beer lovers. They offer flights, (of their choosing or yours), so you can try six beers at a time. Not only is their selection of beer fun and phenomenal, but the food and staff are also pretty incredible. Ask which bar Jill is on because she really knows her stuff about pairing your personal taste, your food choice and the correct beer. Plus she is really nice.

During our two visits here, we've ordered pizza, onion rings, and buffalo chicken dip from the regular menu. If they are offering Grown-up Mac and Cheese or the Cuban Sandwich on the specials list, grab them. This place has mastered pub/comfort food, so you really can't go wrong. Mac and Cheese, if available, will blow your mind. I can't rave enough. They really should put it on the everyday menu, hint, hint.

Stopped in for a drink with friends. The beer selection was pretty amazing. I liked having such great local choices!
We didn't try anything to eat this time. Would definitely go back to try a different beer!
