Get the raw bar. It was great! The service was extremely attentive and just a nice talkative person. Everything we had there was great.

Surf was suggested to us by many locals for dinner. The staff at Surf asked us to call a half an hour before our arrival to be put on a list. We waited only 10 minutes and were promptly seated at a beautiful table with a view of the water. The staff was very pleasant and was prompt to solve a mix up in a drink order. Food was hot, fresh and delicious. A little noisy but all in all a wonderful experience!

We've recently moved to Portsmouth and Surf has quickly become one of our favorites. Sitting at the bar for a glass of wine, a cocktail, apps, or dinner is enjoyable. The bar staff is friendly and offer great service. This is a "go to" spot when we have company in for dinner. The freshness of ingredients (we love the oysters and all things seafood) is consistent as is the service. If your are especially fortunate, you can catch a sea-going vessel moving on the Piscataqua. If not, you still have one of the best views in town.

If you want to experience unique cuisine, try The Surf. Michael Buckley has hit it out of the park once again with this venue. Choose either the full restaurant or sushi bar next door. Great views of the harbor - shrimp cocktail is a full meal... Have always had a great lunch or dinner.
