This place is awesome for late night snacks or just when you are starving. We stopped here in between a wedding ceremony and reception. Great Portsmouth staple and a must visit.

We arranged to meet our husbands for a late afternoon lunch at Gilley's. Upon arrival, a very grumpy man snapped " Are you ordering or not. If not, there are people who want to get in". It was 2:00 in the afternoon, no on else...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.
