Sat outside on the covered deck overlooking the entrance to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. We enjoyed a tasty pastrami sandwich and the Porky Pig pulled pork sandwich, each with special house cut potato chips. Cold draught beer to wash it down. Heavenly lunch!

Excellent food...have had great fried chicken and also the meatloaf dinner. Lots of food and usually a take home box is necessary. Servers very efficient and atmosphere is great. Located next door to Portsmouth Navy Yard.

Enjoyed two stops over one weekend, an evening with six friends and a late afternoon by myself. Friendly and attentive service and great variety and high quality pub food. Happy to have found this place. Terrific hamburgers with warm homemade chips!

While visiting in Kittery, we stopped in for an early evening meal. My husband had a great burger, angus beef, said it was one of the best he's had in in a while. I had the mac and lobster, the lobster was a little chewy...More
