Stopped here for a late lunch. We had a delightful waitress named Lauren. My daughter had the saffron salmon. She said it was wonderful. I had the pastrami and fries. The pastrami was tasty and cut nice and thin. Would definitely go back.

Although the brewery is nothing out of the ordinary it was open later than other places to eat, featured a good beer selection and entirely decent food. Nothing to write home about but nothing to complain about either. Friendly efficient service.

Good lunch in a nice environment. It's a big restaurant with a lot of choices, as well as craft beer and a spiked cider. Nice atmosphere in an old building along a quaint shopping street.

We’ve been here numerous times and are never disappointed! They have a vast menu with vegetarian options. I highly recommend the hummus and baba ganoush appetizer!

This micro brewery offers good selection of its local beers. We did not eat here, but food looked appetizing and people near us gave it favorable ratings. Very noisy atmosphere, but that is because it is a pub atmosphere. Nice place.

Had dinner here tonight based on the ratings ... we enjoyed it! Very loud (read: "good vibe") but a nice place. Friendly and efficient staff. We had their "famous" mussels and loved them. I had the pulled pork and really enjoyed it ... a little...More

We stopped here to try their beers. We did not eat so won't comment on the food. Seating is at booths, tables, high tops or at a bar. If there was other seating we didn't see it. We were seated immediately as we entered. Greeting...More

Good morning, Thanks for your question. The answer is a qualified yes. Like many other older buildings in downtown Portsmouth, ours was not built to meet ADA requirements. Our front entrance is two steps up from the... More
