4 of us went to State Street Saloon for lunch. The lunch specials are unbelievably low priced. Lobster roll with chips and pickle for 4.99. Good amount of lobster for the money but personally I would upgrade to the larger size roll for 11.99. That said, add a cup of Seafood chowder for 2.50 and what a bargain!. This was by far the best seafood chowder we had ever had, not a heavy base and it was chock full of seafood, scallops, lobster, fish. Yummy! I had the lobster mac and cheese for 6.99. I thought it would be a small serving but it was large enough for me to take home half of it. It was not a heavy cheddar sauce but it could have has a little more in terms of spices. The was very little lobster .

The service was good, not rushed . We ate in the dining room which was empty.

One negative was the unisex rest room. It was really quite unpleasant, dingy and dirty .

The food sucks, it has for the last few years, Bartenders are constantly looking for their tip. A classic dive with no atmosphere. If you are lucky you will go when the princess and prince aren't working!! :)

Grabbed a quick bite for lunch our first day in Portsmouth. Great service, good food. No frills, no nonsense. I'd definitely go back.

Reviews on TA had said how great the chowder was and they were right - nice and thick with plenty of taste. The beer too was good, but the rest of the food (lobster roll was tasteless) and the service were dreadful. In fairness it wasn't all the servers fault - she appeared to be the only one working. Management need to up their game in the kitchen and employ sufficient staff to work the tables IMO
