A little dark inside but a local hangout. Great service, good food, moderate prices. Generous drink portions, order the pearl harbor.

We love to eat and have a beer at the end of our tour, the staff is great the food is awesome and I highly recommend the lobster sliders. We also usually try to get there in the summer also. Thank you Lisa Dadiego & Bob Pothier Jr.

Outstanding lunch/ My wife had the medium lobster roll and loved it. I had the best seafood chowder I have ever had, absolutely loaded with seafood. The chicken wings were very good as well. We will definitely be returning.

Must try the seafood chowder! I had a burger and my friend had a lobster roll, really great food. Easy going atmosphere with football games on the TVs.

Seafood chowder, while not thick, was creamy and loaded with seafood. Excellent! The lobster mac and cheese was also very good with a generous bowl of hot pasta and lots of lobster. The dining room is quite small, but filled up quickly on a Saturday night. Nice staff, but when they got busy, it was difficult to get timely service.

Service was slow and it was not that busy. Having said that seafood chowder was excellent. Lobster roll and lobster mac and cheese also very good with plenty of lobster.

We were intrigued by the sign above the entrance that claimed the "best seafood chowder in town". I can't validate the best in town claim since that's the only seafood chowder we had in Portsmouth. We also had the lobster roll, which was very good. The server was very helpful and friendly. A good place.

We visited the State Street Saloon and we walked through the 3 separate dining areas and decided the middle section was where we would have lunch. We are so glad we did. Denise was our server and she provided great suggestions for eating and drinking. The nachos were great and not your basic chips with cheese drizzled on them. The... More
