The deck of Old Ferry Landing offers some of the best cocktails and views of Portsmouth Harbor in the summer. Its worth the wait to sit out there, so be patient if there is a crowd because its worth the wait.

My husband and I have been with friends to Old Ferry Landing many times. We love the food, and the ability to eat on the deck. Being able to enjoy the water and all the scenery is awesome

You just can't resist the Ferry Landing on a warm summer evening. The Jimmy Juice is a Portsmouth Favorite. Seafood is wonderful, predictable and big portions.

The food here is surprisingly great! I mistakenly rated it with 1 star instead of 4 so I am attempting to correct with 5 stars.

Hard to find Ceres St and no parking on this street for restaurant. Best to park on a major street and walk down Ceres to restaurants. Lots of little shops in area also, We had some nice chilled beers and clams, haddock and scallops. Everything fried nice and golden brown and all dishes were excellent. Sit outside and enjoy the...

We sat outside and enjoyed watching the boats coming and going. Service was great and food was tasty. My husband ordered the seafood platter which was plenty of food and I ordered a burger with a salad, which was very good as well.

The deck is awesome and it does get crowded! The service was great - walk up to the bar and order a drink! We watched the boats going by while enjoying our cocktails! They serve food here and it looked really good but we didn't eat anything so I can't offer a comment on that.

Right on the Portsmouth waterfront, this no-frills, better than a clam shack serves up the usual seafood fare. Hubby had the seafood platter with haddock, clams, scallops and shrimp on a mound of french fries with cole slaw. I opted to the lobster sandwich that was served on a bulkie roll. Plenty of lobster - 6 oz. - but the... More

As a frequent visitor, I ordered one of their delicious specials--Lobster and Shrimp Risotto. Best I have ever had---very nice texture, and deep seafood flavor with giant chunks of lobster and large shrimp! My uncle from Nevada had the traditional lobster, and as I hoped was a terrific experience for him! And, we certainly had to have their famous Jimmy... More
