If you really want some fresh fish and cooked just right, this is the place to go. My husband loves sushi and he stated the Tuna sushi was excellent. I had Baked Scallops and they were out of this world. We definitely will go back. I cannot say enough about this place!

Surf in Nashua is the best seafood restaurant around. They have a menu that is complete with fish, shellfish, chowders stews, paella and on some evenings Buck a Shuck Oysters. I find their sushi items are fantastic and the seafood sampler is fresh and delicious. Michael Buckley (the owner and proprietor) has a number of restaurants in New Hampshire and... More

Surf is a fantastic seafood restaurant. Went with another couple, and we were all very impressed by the food and service. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was fantastic, and we'd definitely go back for any date night or nice dinner. The décor isn't something to write home about, and the location and façade don't make it look like... More

Surf is the seafood restaurant you go to when you want more than the usual fried seafood platter. The choices of entrees and the Sushi items ensure that just about all taste will be accommodated. The fish is, of course, the featured items as well as the raw bar; the colossal shrimp are exquisite. The salads with their meat/fish toppings... More

Every last Wednesday of the month they have buck a shuck or $1 oysters. So sweet and delicious. Get there early or you will have to wait for a table as it is always packed for buck a shuck. Flounder stuffed with portabella mushrooms was perfect. My wife loved the Lobster Kristina. Great service and a great meal.

I was pleasantly surprised since I wasn't impressed with the décor or the horribly outdated bathroom. The food made up for that. I thought it was reasonably priced and had a large selection on the menu-if you love seafood. It was tough for one of our guests since non-seafood items are very limited. But the name is "Surf" so you... More

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.
