There are endless options when it comes to eating out on the seacoast. Here are the tops of the tops when it comes to the very best food and experiences!
BRGR Bar- If you're looking for the tastiest burgers in town, head straight to BRGR Bar! Vegetarians and carnivores alike will find a delicacy to fall in love with - perhaps the amazing truffle fries or their famous milkshakes!
Jumpin' Jays Fish Cafe: Jumpin' Jays is a local foodie enclave serving refined seafood in a sleek, upscale setting. The "Catch of the Day" arrives daily from local fisherman and pairs well with the extensive selection of gourmet sauces, side dishes, and raw bar.
MOXY: This fun, casual restaurant and bar has won countless awards and adoration from the local community. Set in a bustling, 2-story loft in downtown Portsmouth, Moxy serves up modern American tapas with an emphasis on flavor! Be sure to try the whoopee pies...they're famous for them!
Vida Cantina: Vida Cantina celebrates modern Mexican cuisine where bright, adventurous flavors and local ingredients come together on every plate. With signature tacos and creatively-flavored margaritas, Vida Cantina is a must-visit for all lovers of Mexican cuisine!
The Franklin Oyster House: "Portsmouth's Neighborhood Oyster Bar" offers a wide selection of locally-caught oysters alongside progressive dishes and craft cocktails. The Franklin building began serving Oysters in 1867 and now, almost 150 years later, The Franklin Oyster House has revived this downtown Portsmouth tradition!
STREET: STREET is an eclectic, casual restaurant that satisfies both your hunger and your wanderlust. You don't need to travel far to have a taste of what this international street food paradise has to offer. Sunday brunch is an absolute must!!!
DOS AMIGOS: At Seacoast Lately we believe tacos are ALWAYS a good idea. We love the vibrant atmosphere and delicious selections at this casual Mexican restaurant and their daily specials frequently convince us to sneak out for lunch. A perfect spot for lunch on the go, a casual dinner with friends, or enjoying chips and guac at Prescott Park! P.S. if you're venturing outside of downtown Portsmouth, you can find Dos Amigos in Dover, Concord, and Newburyport!
The Prop: This isn't just an average spot to dine while watching live music and theatre outside... it's upscale, local, and we're in love! Located at Prescott Park Arts Festival, this seasonal, gourmet "snack shack" serves up STREET's famous curry fries, iced tea and brownies from White Heron, and fish sandwiches from Sander's Fish Market! Pizza, freshly-made ice cream, and homemade popsicles are also among our list of favorite menu items!
