We always enjoy the 4th Sunday brunch. The menu is usually a surprise and the choices are varied so it is tough to make a decision! We have never been disappointed. The chef is very creative and his pizzas and other dishes are always delicious. Service is great.

We enjoyed our food. We've gone there several times and we will be back again. Freshness is number one for this chef. Gets better every time. Games and cornhole. Bar. Good beer selection.

We only had a pizza and beer of course. The Yankee had pepperoni sausage and half olives half mushroom. Delicious New York style crust made by chef/owner Nick, and great service by his wife Hope. Thank you for a delicious lunch.

Really enjoyed our meal there, and the young couple that own the place are very pleasant and informative. I will definitely be going back.

Delicious food, and right in downtown Portsmouth. A short drive off Rt 64- so a great stop if you just need some food while traveling. The restaurant itself is really dark, but has a decent atmosphere. Didn't try the pizza, but the calzones and Stromboli were fantastic.

One of my local friends loves this restaurant and highly recommended it. My shipmates and I enjoyed a delicious meal. The pizza, calzone, pork dish, and salads were all flavorful and cooked perfectly. The casual atmosphere is good for groups and families. There are even some toys for kids to play with.

Locally sourced dishes, ALWAYS fresh, and a great selection for meat eaters and veggietarians alike. Pizzas are a must! Smaller restaurant, so seating is limited, but I think worth the wait.
