For the past 25 years, whenever I visited my brother in Dover, NH it was a "must-go-to" stop at Gilley's. The nostalgic ambience, friendly staff, tasty food, and interesting history (love the story of the parking tickets) make Gilley's great. The interior is small -...More

I have been going to Gilleys for 30 years. The tall, thin employee should never have been left to run a shift. Completely unqualified, he will damage a good business if left on his own. He locked the door because he was too flustered and...More

Gilley's comes up as a diner but it's not the diner you'd expect. It is the typical 1940 diner serving burgers, hot dogs and grilled cheese. Place is very small, with retro decor. Staff is straight to the point but nice. The hot dogs are...More

Being that I grew up across the river in Maine, I remember the original Gilley's mobile kitchen before it became a fixture. NO trip to Portsmouth should be considered complete without a stop at Gilley's!! In my opinion, Gilley's is synonomous with Portsmouth! It's a...More

Wow! Great burgers and chili cheese fries. Price is good also. Only 8 stools so plan on eating outside or standing, but well worth it.
