I ordered a burger and hot dog with french fries. It wasn't expensive but the quality was good. Hit the spot! Will be back.

So I stopped by here late one night for a quick bite to eat after I saw this place had some decent reviews. First thing to notice when coming here is the parking, what little there is. Most customers apparently only come on foot, for the parking spaces litterally block you in if someone comes in after you. Next thing... More

Stopped in at this little corner resturant after pulling out of the parking garage. Had to run back to the garage to pay on the second floor due to a broken gate. Came back to a rude man yelling at me not to park there. Tried to explain i was just trying to do the right thing and pay my... More

Hi Amanda and Andrew C This is a very frustrating issue and we apologize if our employee came across as ill-mannered. Our parking lot has limited off street parking spaces. We have signs regarding our parking policy posted in our lot. We rely on those spaces for our customers and we do our best to serve them quickly so spaces... More

This ancient diner car with bar stools for maybe 8, will have your steamed dog with the fixins in your hands in minutes. Fries and hamburgers also available. Decidedly not gourmet but solid blue collar throwback.

Excellent hot dog loaded. Rich history. Great burgers. Beans on the menu. Poutine is yummy. I would enthusiastically recommend this dining car for lunch or late night eating!

This place is a classic. For all you "yunguns" out there who might not know what a real diner is like, GO TO GILLEYS. They've got: 1-Hand-packed hamburgers 2-Hot fresh fries 3-Brownies the size of catcher's mitts 4-1970's era prices. Our family of 4 ate lunch including drinks, fries and a brownie for under $20. The seating is minimal, but... More

This place is awesome for late night snacks or just when you are starving. We stopped here in between a wedding ceremony and reception. Great Portsmouth staple and a must visit.

We arranged to meet our husbands for a late afternoon lunch at Gilley's. Upon arrival, a very grumpy man snapped " Are you ordering or not. If not, there are people who want to get in". It was 2:00 in the afternoon, no on else in the building and no one else in site trying to get in. Rather than... More

The experience of eating at Gilley's is one of a kind. There is a limited menu and it's been that way since they opened a hundred years ago. This little establishment has seen some serious action. It's cash only... and I always tip... i find it annoying when people don't... so cough up the cash for your food that is... More
