We go to the Library pretty often because our grandsons LOVE the lobster mac-n-cheese. I always get the filet and a side of asparagus. They have an outstanding wine list. We've eaten in the bar when they're crowed and the service has been just as good as the dining room.

My husband & I celebrated our July 4th anniversary in Porstmouth. We chose The Library for dinner. The atmosphere was warm, cozy and quiet. The decor lends intself to years gone by - what beautful wood on walls and ceiling, and of course books. Our server, Hallie, was helpful not pesty, extremely professional in a very sweet way, our food was served in a timely fashion. I had steak au poivre , Brian had filet mignon - good size portions and cooked to perfection. I prefer well-done and it was not burnt or dried out!!!! Nice wine list and the Belvedere Gimlet was delicious. Definitely would return. It is the perfect place to celebrate any occasion!!! Side bar - our server Hallie just happens to be a top 24 runner up from season 11 (this past season) on American Idol. She was so kind to let us take pics!!!!

a great place if you want a occasion or just to treat yourself. Food is good. Pricey as they don’t give you anything with your food.. everything is a separate charge. 8 for a side of potatoes. etc. Nice wine list. all around a nice place.

Loved the food, the atmosphere and the location. A little pricey but worth it. Fabulous steaks, etc. as well as great desserts and good service. Enjoyable all the way!
