Description: Everyday our team of chefs work with our seafood buyers to source the best quality seafood. Our standards of excellence start with the selection of the top of the catch each day and often our daily specials are sourced from local fisherman who know where to send the best fish of the day. ​We go to such lengths to secure the freshest seafood for one reason – our high standards of excellence demand that every ingredient we use is the best. Although we can tell you how fresh our seafood is, the only way to really know is to taste it.

Glad this was rated #1 in seafood because it was totally worth the visit. Parmesan calamari, shrimp and ginger spring rolls, steamers and lobster nachos. Everything was Awesome. So fricken glad we stopped here. A+

The food was very well done. Nice choices, cooked nicely. The server was pleasant. I just got the distinct feeling that a premium was being added to the price of the food for the location. I thought that it was a bit too much price wise for the portions that were served. This was was a nice place for a "Splurge" dinner, but when I return to Portsmouth, I will look for a better price to value restaurant.

Went to Surf for drinks on a sunny afternoon with friends. It was delightful to sit outside. Both the drinks and apps were divine. Surf is always a good bet!

We recently visited with friends and couldn’t get reservations so we waited for some bar seats. Enjoyed the lobster and Brie nachos but they really don’t give you enough for the price you pay...it’s delicious though! We also enjoyed a few of the sushi rolls, the California, spicy shrimp and one of their special rolls. All very fresh and delicious. Sushi seems to be a popular item here. Will be back!

First timers. Husband had the steamed salmon, he said it was good but could have used more seasoning. I had three Huge shrimp cocktail and the were wonderful. My main was the Shrimp Vind?. I asked for horseradish sauce to give it more flavor. Good service.
