5 of us ate here a couple of night ago and I believe we all left very satisfied. I ordered the fish and chips. This was some of the best fish and chips I've had in some time. One friend ordered the steamers and he seemed to really enjoy them. The server we had was excellent and very attentive except for my iced tea refill. She was so pleasant that I overlooked that.
We sat outside with a view of the water and docks/boats which was very nice.

Lived here for years and never made it to this place. Enjoyed our first dinner here last night on a return visit. We know what to expect from a typical lobster pound and were very satisfied. View and setting were beautiful; service was prompt, pleasant and attentive and the food was all fresh and well prepared.

If you want linens... go somewhere else... if you want a fun, pleasant dinner experience on the water in a beautiful setting... come here.

BG's is a wonderful spot to meet family and friends. Outdoor dining in good weather overlooks the water. Inside is casual and relaxed. It is the seafood and the service that are both exception. The wait staff are so familiar with serving children that they anticipate what you need before you have to ask. And the specials are to die for! Swordfish, local haddock, tuna, scallops, shrimp, all served several ways and if they have the corn chowder, don't pass it up, you'll be sorry you did.

Me and my family were on vacation this memorial day weekend in Portsmouth. I went online and googled places to eat. Bgs boathouse was listed and looked good based on food for my daughter who is 4 and us who enjoy seafood. I thought the place would be perfect for my family. NOPE ! THIS plACE WAS PLAIN OVERPRICED AND THE FOOD WAS OK. the wait staff was rude they were gossiping about me and my daughter. My husband looked on as they chatted about whatever. Our waitress didn't refill our drinks she had no smile was not polite. I will not recommend this place and ill never go back. They had plastic wear also. !!!! Ha I almost died. The bathroom too was our dated and dirty. Very small too. Was not impressed and disappointment for the money we spent I would of rather of eaten fast food. !!!! Beware people.
