    Great atmosphere & Good Food

    This is our first post. We are on our first big trip with Lily heading from NY to Acadia with a two day stopover in Portsmouth. Our family is relying on these reviews to find dog friendly restaurants and we were very thankful to find this spot! They let us choose our table and we were able to sit in a shady corner where Lily was able to comfortably unwind while we ate. The food and drinks were all delicious including the mussel pot. The only reason I didn’t give a five bones review was because other than seating us comfortably they didn’t acknowledge Lily at all as mentioned in previous reviews. Overall, food was good and we were happy to find a comfortable spot where Lily was accepted. Thanks for referring us. :)

    Super Server - Great Food!

    Our server (Sydney) was awesome! We were on the shaded patio. and she brought water for our two dogs right away. We were here for a family reunion (party of 28), so she had her hands full. We were encouraged to stay on the patio and enjoy the live music while the rest of the family went on a harbor cruise (no dogs allowed). Lobster roll and clam chowder delicious! Wish we lived here!

    Yummy food, pet friendly place!!

    We came here on our way back to our home from Maine. We weren't sure what to expect when it was so busy because our dog is in training around people. They gave Piper some fresh water in her own bowl and were very friendly! Our waiter agreed to give her a treat(we carry them for strangers to give our girl)!
    Great place. Would recommend

    We sat out in the deck area, Is a hot sticky kind of day and they immediately brought over an ice bowl of water for the pup! The food was great and the atmosphere was friendly and they were happy to talk and socialize with my pup.

    Very dog friendly!

    This place was awesome! Everyone was so friendly & came over to pet our dogs. Nice sized outdoor patio. They brought them water and refilled it when it was emptied. Oh and the food was very good too!

    Incredible Place

    They were so kind to us and our pup. The atmosphere on the patio was great and so we're the other dogs and their owners.

    Great place!

    My family and our pup enjoyed a lovely afternoon in their outdoor courtyard listening to live music, enjoying some brew and good food. They do provide water bowls and their was plenty of shaded seating area. A great place to spend the afternoon.
