We enjoyed our food. We've gone there several times and we will be back again. Freshness is number one for this chef. Gets better every time. Games and cornhole. Bar. Good beer selection.

homeGrown is open the 4th Sunday of each month for Brunch from 11:00-2:00. I hadn't been to a brunch in several months. They have established a great reputation with a loyal following. The menu varies on the season, but there's always something good to try. Nick is an innovative whiz in the kitchen. I've now established a standing reservation for... More

We only had a pizza and beer of course. The Yankee had pepperoni sausage and half olives half mushroom. Delicious New York style crust made by chef/owner Nick, and great service by his wife Hope. Thank you for a delicious lunch.

Really enjoyed our meal there, and the young couple that own the place are very pleasant and informative. I will definitely be going back.

Delicious food, and right in downtown Portsmouth. A short drive off Rt 64- so a great stop if you just need some food while traveling. The restaurant itself is really dark, but has a decent atmosphere. Didn't try the pizza, but the calzones and Stromboli were fantastic.

One of my local friends loves this restaurant and highly recommended it. My shipmates and I enjoyed a delicious meal. The pizza, calzone, pork dish, and salads were all flavorful and cooked perfectly. The casual atmosphere is good for groups and families. There are even some toys for kids to play with.

Locally sourced dishes, ALWAYS fresh, and a great selection for meat eaters and veggietarians alike. Pizzas are a must! Smaller restaurant, so seating is limited, but I think worth the wait.

wasn't an overly memorable experience... Although I must admit the waitress was quite nice & friendly, I found the decor & presentation of the place to be seriously lacking ... It was actually borderline tacky 😁 I ordered a barbecued chicken pizza & I believe the pizza might have been tasty but the chicken tasted freezer burnt... So this made... More

We went for a family birthday dinner and our party of 10 was seated promptly and our drink orders were taken and delivered. Most of us ordered pizza and then shared. The pizza was hot, with fresh ingredients. We will visit again the next time we are in town. The owners are very friendly and the chef came out to... More
