we saw this place with a lot of cars on our way through after having great lobster rolls at another Portsmouth restaurant, and decided to stop here on our way back a few days later, hoping to get some seafood that was not fried. This was a great find! In additoin to seafood they have lots of other steak and... More

The bratskeller has been around for decades answer still serves small 10 inch pizzas, and subs. Pizza has a medium crust, not thin as crispy, but not real thick either. It's a nice chewy crust. Our veggie pizza had plenty of toppings, but could have more sauce and cheese. I admit to liking a lot of tomato sauce and probably... More

We usually eat at the Bratskellar which is located in the back of the Dinnerhorn.It is more of a pub style dining than the Dinnerhorn that offers everything from seafood to steaks.The "Brat" as it is know by locals offers pizza,salads ,apps., sandwiches and some of the coldest draft beer you will find on the area.On site parking available.

This restaurant is like stepping back in time. I don't think it's decor has been updated in decades. There seems to be a lot of locals who know the bartenders by name, who were very friendly. That's where it ends. We ordered potato skins that were not good. The cheese they used was mozzarella. Next I ordered a cheese pizza... More

It's such a shame this was your experience with us. It sounds like the dishes you ordered just didn't align with your preferences, and I know we can impress you with some other items on our menu. I hope we'll have another chance to show you why people love coming in for a meal. Take care, Paul - Owner More

Asked for a recommendation of a couple of nearby restaurant/bars near our hotel and this was one. We stopped and checked it out, deciding to stay for a meal. Best decision we've made in years!!

I've been coming to the Brat/Dinnerhorn since 1976 while still in high school. It's still my favorite pizza of all time and be sure to ask for it "Dover Style" which means a little under-cooked. I'm on a low sodium diet and my doctor recommended the Brat for pizza because it's crust is the lowest in the area. Now when... More

We stopped in here for dinner as it was recommended by the hotel we were staying at. We were specifically looking for a place that had swordfish. Nicely decorated, great ambiance. Beautiful gas fireplace tops it off. Waitstaff was friendly. For food we started with the beet salad (large portion) and a wedge salad. Both were good. Entrees were steak... More
