This is the place to go in Nashua hands down. Always a good buzz about the place, with a large bar. Drinks are just the way you ask for them. Service is terrific. The maki is awesome. Seafood dinner will be the best you have had. Other options are also excellent.

Surf continues to be one of the gems in downtown Nashua with great service, inviting atmosphere and great food. Yes, the price point is higher than other establishments in the area, the overall value surpasses most. Tonight's dining experience has surpassed our most frequented favorites on the menu.

Surf has been around for years, yet I've never been. It's still a popular, downtown, destination as it was a madhouse last night. Lucky to snag a table arriving just in time. They now seem to cater to massive groups.. No reservations for less than 8. Yikes! With large tables of loud talkers, it was impossible to have a quiet... More

This is a very consistent seafood restaurant. It is a bit pricey for the area, but its worth it. The chowder is very good and I would definitely suggest the raw bar. The seafood tower is tremendous, though pricey. All of the sushi is really good, especially the lobster roll. I am partial to the Tuna entree or the lobster... More

For a seafood restaurant, the food is very creative and always fresh. It extends from the more standard fare to some very wonderful Asian and Indian creations. The lobster cocktail is a real treat. Portions are often set so that dishes can be combined for even more variety. As with other restaurants in Michael Timothy's Dining Group, the wait staff... More
