We had a large party and we all loved it. I highly recommend the basal bourbon drink, it was great. My favorites were the fried pickles, corned beef dinner and chicken wraps. We will be back on our next visit.

Got seats at the bar and had some wonderful drinks. The service was great and the vibe was good. We tried the fried pickles, corn bread and short ribs app's. The short ribs were fantastic and the fried pickles were the best we've had.

Moxy is a restaurant. The Sheraton is one of the many lovely hotels in Portsmouth. Please re-read the various reviews. I am a visitor to Portsmouth, not a business owner there
