I took my parents here when they were up visiting from North Carolina. We all LOVED Moxy. So much fun. The menu style was a little confusing to us at first, and we were unsure how much to order, but once the food started coming...More

Moxy is a restaurant. The Sheraton is one of the many lovely hotels in Portsmouth. Please re-read the various reviews. I am a visitor to Portsmouth, not a business owner there
