What could be better than sipping a delightful alcoholic beverage on an outside deck overlooking the majestic Piscataqua river? Somethings, sure, but not that many. This is a Portsmouth institution in the summer, so get there early if you wish to hang out, enjoy the...More

Casual dining. Staff is great. Patrons are happy and everyone chats and has a good time. Food is very good. The view is really neat. Outdoor and covered seating at the bar with open views. Will go back again when I visit Portsmouth.
