Al's Seafood

This is one of our go to seafood places. The double lobster dinner is great for two people paired with chowder. The fried seafood is great and they even have beer and wine.

The best ice cream on the seacoast! Been going there since I was a child. The sizes are huge! Stick with the child size. The large is too large for one person.

I had a crab roll for $15.00 and it was all pure crab and lots of it. We ordered a Haddock Fish sandwich, excellent as well. The tuna sandwich was HUGE and everything we ordered was very good and the prices weren't bad either! We...MoreWe are thrilled that you loved it! Hope you come back soon!

Jumpin' Jack's Java

Reviewed By Electorny

Lisa and I went here for a quick breakfast early in the morning.
We ordered muffins and medium coffees.
The coffee was hot and flavorful and the muffins were outstanding.

We sat at the front of the coffee shop at the window table.
This place also sells branded merchandise like tee shirts and hoodies as well as travel mugs and other clothing articles.

There is also a cooler with juices and water etc.
Prices are at a premium but then again so is the food and drinks. It is well worth the money.

Stop by and then walk across the street to the Hampton Beach

Ron's Landing At Rocky Bend

Reviewed By dwoceanside - Hampton Beach, NH

Many choices on their menu but they are best known for their fresh seafood & fresh veggies well-prepared, not soggy or overdone. The lighter fare in the upstairs bar is just right for those who don't like to overeat. I've sent many people there & all have been very happy with their experience.

Reviewed By N4823VWjackc - Portsmouth, New Hampshire

I guess there must be something about the pizza oven at this place. Inevitably one part of the pizza gets blackened and overdone. This last time I got takeout from this place it was absolutely perfect. When this pizza is cooked right it's terrific. I love Papa Gino's but The 180 is quicker and just as good. Go there instead.

Airfield Cafe

Reviewed By Howie-Betty - Boston, Massachusetts

I've been eating breakfast at Airfield Cafe for six months. Super place for breakfast, airplane decor, friendly staff of waitresses, and tasty well prepared food. A little off the beaten path, but worth the search & find. An active airfield Hampton Airfield (7B3) and flight training school is adjacent. May wait a bit on summer weekends, but well worth any wait. Inside and out side seating. Upsizing is in planning.

We had a couple of VIP coupons from past visits. The service was deplorable. I think they took the dishwasher from the back end an promoted him to waiter. He had no idea of the menu or food descriptions. Service was slow. My personal order was not served as described. The food was ok at best, Major gastro issues a soon as we got home. Ron, you should be ashamed!! You may be navigating to a teaching school but you should teach your staff first, I have a couple of other gift cards to the bistro that I am literally going to throw out!!!!!!!!!!! Folks keep away!

Urban Farmhouse Eatery

Reviewed By SparkyMcG - Rye, New Hampshire

.....stop in to try the Urban Farmhouse Eatery for a while now. It seems that a new restaurant opens in this location every year and doesn't last very long. On several occasions, I noticed a lot of cars in the parking lot which generally indicates a good place to stop. As usual, I checked TripAdvisor first and my wife and I thought we'd give it a try late one Sunday morning and we were not dissapointed. The menu has some very interesting selections which made choosing difficult.To start out, I ordered a Bloody Mary and my wife ordered the Mimosa of the Day which was Malibu rum, pineapple juice and Prosecco. The Mimosa gets high marks, but the Bloody fell short for many reasons. When I asked what they had on draught, the first beer mentioned was one of my personal favorites: The Throwback Brewery Hog Happy....and so was I. My wife ordered the veggie omlet which she described as delicious. I had the pastrami brisket on rye, with fried pickles, Swiss cheese and mustard and opted for the french fries as my side. The grilled sandwich was chock full of lean pastrami and the fries were so yummy, I didn't have room for the other half. Despite the restaurant being very busy, the service was attentive, quick and done with a smile. Even the food came much sooner than I expected. With so many good choices for breakfast and lunch, we'll be back soon to try something new.

Copper Lantern

Reviewed By Gregory B - Boston, Massachusetts

The copper lantern is a great breakfast spot. The staff is friendly and quick. The rustic decor is cute and inviting. They have an extensive breakfast menu with creative specials. There is usually homemade breads. But their homemade donuts are an awesome treat. It is hard to go for breakfast and not order a donut, especially because they are displayed across an entire farm table!
