Surf Restaurant – Overlooking Portsmouth Harbor

Serious About Seafood!

Owned and operated by highly acclaimed Chef Michael Buckley, Surf is committed to only the finest fish and shellfish. Voted “Best Seafood” by New Hampshire Magazine’s Readers Poll several times, Surf sends its seafood buyers down to the piers to meet with the fishermen as they inspect the catch of the day – handpicking the best for the restaurant.

With a focus on creative cuisine, Surf serves amazing lobster dishes such The Surf Lobster Roll made with 1/4 pound fresh lobster meat warmed in drawn butter and thinly sliced celery on a grilled brioche roll, Lobster and Brie Nachos – 6 warm nacho chops topped with cheddar cheese, mango salsa, sliced jalapeño, and lobster in warm brie and the Lobster Sarah (2lb)  or Lobster Kristina (1¼ lb) –  steamed and shucked native lobster flambéed with cognac, lobster stock, chives, cream and butter, served with jasmine rice & grilled asparagus.     A wine and dine experience for sure!

Why we love it:   It’s a great place for a romantic dinner!
