The experience of eating at Gilley's is one of a kind. There is a limited menu and it's been that way since they opened a hundred years ago. This little establishment has seen some serious action. It's cash only... and I always tip... i find...More

Always my favorite place to grab some delicious cheese fries and a burger or a yummy hot dog! My family come from California just to get Gilleys!

Huge portions, super fresh, mouth-wateringly delicious, and CHEAP. I particularly love the poutine, but really, everything's good there. There's not much seating to speak of - just a few counters - but it's definitely worth the visit.

Just not worth the visit. Ordered a few hotdogs and french fries...hot dogs were done about 10 minutes before the fries. Owner, not very pleasant. Asked for hot sauce and he acted like I was a bother and he was doing me a big favor.More

Simple and delicious burgers, dogs & fries. An establishment in Portsmouth - it's a must-visit. There's often a line, but it goes quickly and it somehow always proves to be worth the wait.

Simple burgers and hotdogs, chili dogs, but open late and always friendly and funny. We still go there sometimes when we're in Portsmouth. When I was in high school a group of us were hungry late at night and nothing was open. We called Gilley's...More

I drove around the Portsmouth downtown area for a few minutes trying to find a parking spot and had no luck. It was a Friday night just after suppertime. In front of Gilley's, however, there were three parking spots, so in we went. It looks...More

This is what it is, a no frills, "greasy spoon" diner that has really good double cheese burgers & fries. Nothing fancy (eat off paper plates), but a fun place to grab a burger (with the works) and fries after a couple beers at the...More

Six of us stopped for a quick lunch since this place was right next to our parking garage. It is basically a hot dog/hamburger place with about 10 stools in a pretty small area. The hot dogs were enjoyed by those who had them. The...More
