We went here for a last night out before moving from VA.
Big mistake.
The food was so bad we couldn't eat it, and the service was the worst I have ever experienced. The manager needs to be fired for allowing things to get so out of hand.
JUST HORRIBLE.

The food has always been excellent. Nice place to come when you want to have a wonderful, quiet meal. The Chef has always pleased my family with his variety of dishes.
The service is great also.
It brings back so many great memories from the past when I go to this restaurant. Years ago this was a very busy area with loads of department stores and movie theaters.

This locals spot has a very nice Sunday brunch. It is a buffet style brunch that competes with the best of them. It's quiet and has an outdoor seating area.

It is always a bad sign when you enter a restaurant at prime dining time on a Saturday night and there are more staff than diners. Still, I wanted to give them a chance, so we ordered. The food took 45 Minutes to arrive. The plates the food was served on were cold and the food on the plates was not much warmer. I was appalled. We sent back the soup and it took another 15 minutes to get it back but at least it was hot. The waiter was oblivious to my complaints about the cold food. The restaurant made no attempt to apologize or adjust our bill to compensate us for such poor service and inadequate food. There are several good and great restaurants in Portsmouth, this is most definitely NOT one of them.

I used to go there frequently when it was under other management. I loved it THEN! A friend came to town and wanted to go there for Dinner. We went - it had no atmosphere and not friendly. Acted like they were doing us a favor by letting us eat there. Food was not bad but nothing special either. This restaurant is not for me.
