Just finishing up their 40th season at the end this year ,this place has been a seacoast favorite since it opened.Waterfront location and onsite parking are a plus. Good food and friendly staff make this place worth try.

I had been recently disapointed in Camden, ME, when served frozen scallops at a whopping $24.95. My sister told me that BG's had sweet, tender scallops and they were delicious! I had the basket, which I think was $16. I was amazed at the size and number of the sweet delicious scallops I received. My hubby got the mini seafood platter, which was just the right size. We traded a few times, and his shrimp were perfect, small, tender and tasty. The view is nice and the deck was comfortable. We will want to go back before they close for the season. The staff was nice too.

Great location, I really like the location of this restaurant at the edge of the water and all. It is fun to sit out and enjoy the surroundings as you eat.The food is good, but I go there for the location.

BG's was a great choice for lunch recently. The clam chowder and fried lobster was very good. We had a nice time eating outside on the deck that overlooks the water. We will plan on coming again the next time we are in Portsmouth.
