Our seaside hometown has many restaurants with decks, but the Old Ferry Landing is the best one! The seafood never disappoints, and the Jimmy Juice is a refreshing libation! Plus, it's owned by the mayor. It's a Portsmouth institution.

A no-frills bar and restaurant. Snappy service with good value fresh fish and seafood. A fair range of local IPA's and beers at sensible prices. Under $30 for one course and beers.

We lunched outdoors on the deck, with a wonderful view of four tug boats tied up at the next pier. The sunny day and pleasant temperatures added to our enjoyment. My fried clams and scallops were tasty and properly fried to a medium golden-brown. My...More

I stopped here on a recommendation from a local. I had a bowl of chowder, it was big and good. Loaded with clams and potatoes. The harbor view was great, choose your own table. A fuller of tugboats right across. They have daily fish specials....More
