I've never eaten any of their undoubtedly fine dinner meals, but if they are close to as good as breakfast, they are great. They have all the usual breakfast things; omelets, eggs, link and patty sausage, bacon, potatoes, pancakes... and they serve them well cooked and hot and the people are friendly. What else is there? It's worth tracking down.... More

Patsy's has been an area iconic restaurant for years. The food is fresh and home cooked. The atmosphere is quaint and inviting. If there may be a downside to Patsy's is the out of main stream location. It's a little hard to find but well worth the search.

This is the place to come if you want a real home cooked breakfast. Love the fried potatoes; better than any hash browns somewhere else. Not fancy but good food!!

This morning my wife and I met friends for breakfast at Patsy's Inn. I had never been there before but recently learned from my mother that she and my late father used to go on dates there back in the Fifties. With that history, I had to go. As expected, it was a pleasant diner that reminded me of the... More

Stopped by for lunch but I had breakfast. I ordered a couple of eggs, a sausage patty and fried potatoes. Everything was very good, as was the service. I've enjoyed Patsy's since I was a young ne'er do well back in the 1970s.

Hubby & I wanted a good home cooked breakfast on our way thru this town . BINGO... If you want simple home cooking this is your place.. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars? I had my coat on the entire time.

A wonderful diner that was established in 1952. When you are in the town of Portsouth and don't want the other alternative for breakfast of Bob Evans...this is the place!
