At the end of our vacation we had breakfast with our son at the Roundabout diner. It was pretty good and our waitress was very nice. It was a nice place to meet up to say our good-byes before we left Portsmouth.

Great diner experience. I've only had breakfast fare there, but it is consistently awesome, large portions, well-made and served by pretty attentive, efficient and hustling servers. I had a corned beef hash eggs Benedict most recently; Wow. Every heart-clogging bite was pure pleasure. And the...More

Stopped in on the way to Maine. It didn't disappoint. Wife had a decent burger that I got to finish. I had the fried chicken dinner. The sausage gravy was excellent. Service was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stop by again.

Although the tenderloin tips were not as good as my wife was hoping, the spinach side salad with hot bacon vinaigrette and french onion soup were quite good. This seems to be a part of the Best Western Plus in Portsmouth, NH. It is convenient...More

At the Roundabout Diner and Lounge, we serve breakfast all day, great burgers and sandwiches, Phantom Gourmet award-winning BBQ, comfort food classics like meatloaf, roast turkey, and of course, local New England favorites like fish and chips, and the best lobster roll around. We also use locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, like bread baked just for us by When Pigs Fly Bakery, breakfast sausage made for us in Vermont, local cheeses, and more. And we make all our delicious cakes and pies right here at the Roundabout. From scratch! If you would like us to cater one of your events then look no further than Chill Catering, one of the largest catering companies on the seacoast.
