We love the high quality variety of food and beer that is offered. There is something for everyone including meat, seafood, vegetarian. Staff is always friendly and service is quick. This time we sat outside and enjoyed some sun and a nice breeze.

Portsmouth brewery had deliciously good brews. Food was a-OK, left me wanting more. The service was excellent and attentive. All in all the brews made up for some of the weak not filling up dishes.

We ate lunch and dinner. Food was good and the service was friendly. Beer selection is wide and cocktails just as good. Reasonably priced and not a long wait for food.

The Portsmouth Brewery is always mixing it up with new menu and beer options. I love that they added so many GF and healthy options over that last year or so. Great burgers, love the salad w salmon and mussels w fries.

Good afternoon (sorry for the tardy reply). Yes, we do have a small patio, but, alas, we can not allow pets there as it is only accessible from inside the building.
