A colleague suggested this place to dine and what a good suggestion. They do not take bookings, you just turn up on the night and hopefully they have tables. We were lucky as a Wednesday night at 5.30 was quiet. The atmosphere was very good, service excellent and food very good. Also local beers on tap were very good. When... More

A great, high energy bar and dining with fabulous open views of the Piscataqua River. The appetizers are creative and delicious. The beef or tuna that you cook on a hot stone right at your seat alone make for a fantastic small meal! The bartenders are loaded with personality and on top of their game, always.

Spent my 60th birthday celebration with 10 family members at Surf on 10/15. The food was FABULOUS! Yummy! Delicious! I should have licked my plate! The server (Maddie) was excellent: great combination of efficiency and humor. Loved the contemp, but not stuffy, vibe! Yay!

Surf is a consistent, welcoming, and all-occasion type of restaurant. The homemade bread that is served fresh, along with a distinct variety of menu choices will please every taste.

This was our 8th or 9th visit in the past three years and may very well be our last. While the food quality remains similarly tasty as it has over the years, the service is not what it used to be. By themselves, our experiences last night wouldn't be a big deal - though together was a concern when there... More

A superb dining experience sitting out on the patio watching the harvest moon rise. Excellent seafood and steaks. One of the best places in Nashua.

Would be nice to have a special that isn't always seafood. Manager Bill also stopped by to see how everything was.... More

Great dinner. Had fried tomato salad which was delicious and then the buttermilk chicken for dinner. Service was great, food was wonderful, the company was good too! Recommend making a reservation.
