On a snowy afternoon, it was nice to walk into the laid back, yet cozy, bar. The onion soup was very good and our salads (Caesar & Cobb) were ample if not spectacular.
The bartender was friendly and attentive. We'll go back for lunch the next time we're in Portsmith.

Don't walk by just because it's a franchise. Take advantage of happy hour deals. London Ale for 4 bucks? sweet deal. Pizza for 5 bucks? ditto. Hot soup on a cold rainy day? Priceless. If you feel guilty, tip the waitress generously. She'll probably deserve it anyway if she is even half as nice as ours.

In the past we've gone to 3 other BBC locations on Cape Cod and always had a good meal with good service for a reasonable price. The BBC in Portsmouth continued that experience for us. We stopped in to make a reservation for a Saturday night. We were told that they don't take reservations but they would put our names on a wait list so that once we came in we wouldn’t have too wait long. They kept their word. We were seated about 10 minutes after we arrived. Our group included 4 adults and 2 children and we all found something on the menu to please out pallets. I only wish the BBC would expand into northern NJ where we live.

We came with a group and had a very nice lunch. The atmosphere is nice and I like the way it was decorated. We had appetizers and meals. Everyone in our party of 8 enjoyed their meals and apps. The beer selection is fantastic and the service was very good. The bathroom was spotless and to me that means a lot. We will. Be back!

Everything was great, but the beer was superb! I wish we could have stayed longer. Food was a bit on the heavy side, but it was "pub food", so that is what you'd expect. Delicious, though.
