“Excellent place to grab a bite to eat”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

While attending one of the events at downtown Portsmouth, we stopped in here to check out the menu. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Once we made our selection, the sandwiches were made right away and they were both very tasty and plentiful with fresh ingredients. I would highly recommend it for someone who would like to have an excellent sandwich made fresh with fresh ingredients to order.

“Good - but not great”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The place was empty when we entered around 12:30 pm on a Saturday, but it was pretty filled by the time we left. Good sandwiches, quality corned beef and pastrami and Dr. Brown's soda. The service was a little slow and spotty but all in all, not a bad place for lunch.

Been coming here for +40 years and always find it a treat. Superb soups, huge and exquisite sandwiches, salads and more. No place better.

“GO HERE!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

There is nothing not to like. This is a family run operation and most of the family works there. Service is a little laid back but not bad at all. Go early for lunch or you will be waiting for a place to sit!

I lived and worked in Portsmouth for 20 years and this is a local's favorite.

The Reuben is the BEST EVER with a glass of sweet tea and fries.

“Gotta have it!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

Delish food. Portion size was perfect.... Not too big or too small. Went to lunch one day with my hubby and then brought 3 other friends the next day. They all raved about it, too!
