Hands down the best wings I’ve had in a long time. They did take about 30 mins to get our food but it was worth the wait. Cooked in the Brick oven made them crispy and juicy. Well visit again!

I thoroughly enjoyed the arugula salad in a fresh bread cone. Generous portion. The cold pint from Kona Brewing was actually a local beer since Redhook / Kona is just on the other side of I-95. Very nice decor and prompt service.

This was the first time I’ve been back here since the fire they had a couple years ago. The first thing I noticed is that it looks exactly the same on the inside, in the night club area. Literally, nothing is changed. I like consistency,...More

Had an amazing lunch at grill last Saturday and although the food was not perfect the service at bar made up for it. I think it may have just been an off day. If in downtown Portsmouth, you would be missing out if you didn’t...More

Stopped in late on a Friday with 4 friends. There was a table available in the small dining room. The pizza was delicious, cooked perfectly and the drinks were cold and inexpensive. They have been a bit inconsistent lately, but this last visit was excellent....More

We loved it. Found it my mistake walking the town. They have pizza but we had the Meatballs. Really good appetizer. Great bartenders that gave some ideas where to go. Would recommend. Only issue not sure if they are handicap accessible. We would diffently return.

Yes, we do still have our pizza buffet. It's $7.99, runs from 11:30am - 2pm, Monday - Friday excluding holidays and major snow storms (due to lack of staffing).

Yup, If it's a holiday weekend, you most likely will have to wait for a table. You can take a seat, if one is available, at the bar while you wait for a table. Non holiday weekends are usually good up to about 4:30 - 5:00.
