I go to the brat a few times a year, but hadn't been to the Dinnerhorn for a very long time! It was excellent!

I've only been to the Bratskeller, which is the pizza-pub in back. They have a nice selection of beers which are served cold. Great pizzas and other dishes with a Greek influence. Casual atmosphere and good service.

This review is not based on my just going to the Bratskellar, it is based on me going there since 1972 and loving it. My best friends and I would go there at least twice a week after playing pool at the Bowl-o-Rama and have a few beers/pizza/sandwiches. My favorite pizza of all time then, and still is, the Vegas...

Thanks for being such a loyal customer, KSGOOD, and thank you for the nice review. I used to go to the Bowl- O- Rama for pool in the early 70's. Might have seen you there. More

We took the kids to the Bratskeller and hadn't been in years. The restaurant was filthy. There was food and garbage all over the booths and the floor. The service was sub par, it was a Saturday and they were very busy. The food was okay. We won't be back till they clean this place up!

I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed in your experience, Jill, but I'm afraid you have the wrong business. We're next door to the Bratskellar, but we're an entirely different restaurant. I hope you'll get in touch with them to deliver this feedback! Take care, Paul - Owner More

we saw this place with a lot of cars on our way through after having great lobster rolls at another Portsmouth restaurant, and decided to stop here on our way back a few days later, hoping to get some seafood that was not fried.

The bratskeller has been around for decades answer still serves small 10 inch pizzas, and subs. Pizza has a medium crust, not thin as crispy, but not real thick either. It's a nice chewy crust. Our veggie pizza had plenty of toppings, but could have more sauce and cheese. I admit to liking a lot of tomato sauce and probably... More

We usually eat at the Bratskellar which is located in the back of the Dinnerhorn.It is more of a pub style dining than the Dinnerhorn that offers everything from seafood to steaks.The "Brat" as it is know by locals offers pizza,salads ,apps., sandwiches and some of the coldest draft beer you will find on the area.On site parking available.

This restaurant is like stepping back in time. I don't think it's decor has been updated in decades. There seems to be a lot of locals who know the bartenders by name, who were very friendly. That's where it ends. We ordered potato skins that were not good. The cheese they used was mozzarella. Next I ordered a cheese pizza... More

It's such a shame this was your experience with us. It sounds like the dishes you ordered just didn't align with your preferences, and I know we can impress you with some other items on our menu. I hope we'll have another chance to show you why people love coming in for a meal. Take care, Paul - Owner More
