If you're looking for a bit of rustic Old Portsmouth charm, this is the place. Low, beamed ceilings, crooked doorways. I ordered the broiled haddock and my dish was cooked perfectly. My wife ordered the blackened salmon on couscous, and she enjoyed it as well. The deck offers an outstanding view of the harbor. We'll be back!

The deck of Old Ferry Landing offers some of the best cocktails and views of Portsmouth Harbor in the summer. Its worth the wait to sit out there, so be patient if there is a crowd because its worth the wait.

My husband and I have been with friends to Old Ferry Landing many times. We love the food, and the ability to eat on the deck. Being able to enjoy the water and all the scenery is awesome

You just can't resist the Ferry Landing on a warm summer evening. The Jimmy Juice is a Portsmouth Favorite. Seafood is wonderful, predictable and big portions.

The food here is surprisingly great! I mistakenly rated it with 1 star instead of 4 so I am attempting to correct with 5 stars.

Hard to find Ceres St and no parking on this street for restaurant. Best to park on a major street and walk down Ceres to restaurants. Lots of little shops in area also, We had some nice chilled beers and clams, haddock and scallops. Everything fried nice and golden brown and all dishes were excellent. Sit outside and enjoy the...

We sat outside and enjoyed watching the boats coming and going. Service was great and food was tasty. My husband ordered the seafood platter which was plenty of food and I ordered a burger with a salad, which was very good as well.
