Seems this place has a reputation for having bouncers who are allowed to be free with there aggression. Doesn't much matter whether you are male or female the will rough you up all the same. I suggest finding another establishment to frequent, Portsmouth is an...More

Had an amazing lunch at grill last Saturday and although the food was not perfect the service at bar made up for it. I think it may have just been an off day. If in downtown Portsmouth, you would be missing out if you didn’t...More

Stopped in late on a Friday with 4 friends. There was a table available in the small dining room. The pizza was delicious, cooked perfectly and the drinks were cold and inexpensive. They have been a bit inconsistent lately, but this last visit was excellent....More

We loved it. Found it my mistake walking the town. They have pizza but we had the Meatballs. Really good appetizer. Great bartenders that gave some ideas where to go. Would recommend. Only issue not sure if they are handicap accessible. We would diffently return.

We have eaten at the Gas Light several times, but not for a year or so. The atmosphere and service was as we remembered it, but the food was a disappointment. I had prime rib, which was tender but tasteless. The Brussels sprouts had just...More

Crust was perfect- thin, but not cracker-thin. Great flavor. Had a 12" Farmers Market pizza - bacon, ham, pepperoni and sweet sausage. Tasted great and was plenty for 2 people. Nice beer selection and pizza was served relatively quickly.

One of the top recommended restaurants by the locals. The Gas Light Co offers 2 levels of dining/entertainment options. The street level grill offers a more intimate dining with more of an entree menu. The lower level Pizza Pub offers wood fired pizzas, burgers, wings...More

Yes, we do still have our pizza buffet. It's $7.99, runs from 11:30am - 2pm, Monday - Friday excluding holidays and major snow storms (due to lack of staffing).

Yup, If it's a holiday weekend, you most likely will have to wait for a table. You can take a seat, if one is available, at the bar while you wait for a table. Non holiday weekends are usually good up to about 4:30 - 5:00.
