Top 10 Best Restaurants in the NH Seacoast Area

Below are the top 10 best restaurants we found in the Seacoast area of NH! Many of New Hampshire's seacoast area restaurants offer seafood and great views of the harbors and ocean. Check out these great NH seacoast restaurants below:

Back to the NH Dining Guide | List of NH Restaurants


11 Water Street

11 Water Street

Exeter, NH



Entrees:  $16-$28

Atmosphere: I love this restaurant not only for the food but the beautiful views of the river. For lunch, I recommend the Fish and Chips. It is served with homemade coleslaw. For dinner, start with the scallops and bacon for an appetizer. They are sea scallops wrapped in bacon strips and topped with a maple glaze.  For the perfect entrée, I have several suggestions. The Filet Mignon is delicious. It is 8 ounces and grilled with a rosemary gorgonzola cream sauce, garlic, risotto and served with sugar snap peas.



Acorn Restaurant Café and Lounge

15 Strafford Avenue

Durham, NH



Entrées:  $15-$20

Atmosphere:  Busy so reservations are recommended.  Dressy casual. 

Recommendations:  I have been here twice. Once for dinner and once for Sunday brunch. Their Sunday brunch is extraordinary. They have amount of appetizers such as fresh fruit, New England clam chowder and homemade muffins. Some of the entrée items include chicken, seafood and scrambled eggs. They have a carving station that serves ham and roast beef. The Sunday brunch also includes omelets made just like you want them, desserts such as homemade pies and coffee, tea, juice or soda.



Barn Tavern at the Schooner House Inn

25 Portland Ave

Dover, NH



Entrees:  Starting at $15.95

Atmosphere:  Beautifully decorated in rustic style décor and a gorgeous view of the waterfront on their open deck. Casual dress. 

Recommendations: Well-known for their outstanding seafood. The best appetizer I have ever had was here at the Barn Tavern. It was the Tuna Sushi Martini which is tuna and cucumber mixed with wasabi aioli, sushi rice, pickled ginger and wakame salad.  Delicious!  For your main meal, I would suggest a few choices. You can choose from their entrée selection which I would highly recommend the Lobster Bake which someone resembles a New Clam Bake. It contains lobster, clams, corn on the cob and potatoes. You can also build your own plate where you choose from seafood such as baked stuffed haddock, meat such as grilled meatloaf, steaks and sides such as garlic mashed potatoes.



Black Trumpet Bistro

29 Ceres Street

Portsmouth, NH



Entrees:  $11-$29

Atmosphere: Beautiful views of the Piscataqua River in Portsmouth NH. They have 2 floors to the restaurant. The 1st floor is the dining room that is warm and intimate. The 2nd floor is the bar area. The neat thing about the Black Trumpet is that their menu changes every few weeks in order to introduce the season’s freshest ingredients.

Recommendation:  For a three course meal, I suggest the Fried Calamari Cocktail with pickled cabbage and pepper sauce. The Pan Roasted King Salmon that is served over Chile pasta and tossed with shrimp, bacon and mushrooms in a gin and tomato cream sauce and for desserts, the Dark Chocolate Beet Torte with ginger cream cheese frosting, walnut brittle and orange glaze.




75 Pleasant Street

Portsmouth, NH



Entrees:  $16-$23

Atmosphere:  dress casual. Excellent Latin American cuisine. 

Recommendations:  Appetizer: The Tapas Plate (ham, asparagus, truffle salad with blue cheese, hummus, chorizo and honey mustard).  Entrée:  Pollo Asado (Roasted chicken, red onion, acorn squash, poblano and chicken stock).  Dessert:  Molten Chocolate Cake.



The Dolphin Striker

15 Bow Street

Portsmouth, NH



Entrees: $23-$27

Atmosphere:  Beautiful view of the Portsmouth Harbor.

Recommendations: I have a few dinner suggestions. The Shrimp Pad Tai is delicious.  It is made with large shrimp, bean sprouts, cilantro, eggs, scallions, peanuts, sobe noodles and garlic, soy and lime sauce. The Colossal Scallops are served on a bed of spinach and cous cous and topped with butternut squash sauce.



Galley Hatch

325 Lafayette Road

Hampton, NH



Entrees:  $8-$29

Atmosphere: Friendly staff, Casual dress.

Recommendations:  I have only been here once and we didn’t have any appetizers so I really can’t suggest any. But I can suggest the Seafood Stuffed Haddock dinner that is stuffed with crabmeat, shrimp, and scallop stuffing topped with creamy lobster sauce.


Jumpin Jay’s Fish Café

150 Congress Street

Portsmouth, NH



Entrees:  $21-$27

Atmosphere: Jumpin Jay’s was chosen best of New England in New England Travel Magazine of 2009.

Recommendations: The Cuban Fisherman’s Stew is amazing. It is made with mussels, shrimp, fish, chicken, black beans and topped with fresh cilantro.  For dessert, you have to try the Popover’s Key Lime Pie.



142-144 Congress Street

Portsmouth, NH



Entrees:  $17-$25

Atmosphere:  Great ambience with dimmed lights, candles and soft music. 

Recommendations:  This is an authentic Italian restaurant. My favorite dish is the Cacciatore. I always thought my father-in-law made the best Cacciatore.  That was until I ate at Radici’s. Their Cacciatore is made with chicken, sausage, prosciutto, capicola, mushrooms, tomatoes and rosemary sauce served on fettuccine.



Wings Your Way

13 Jenkins Road

Durham, NH



215 Lafayette Road

North Hampton, NH



Atmosphere:  Very casual, warm and friendly.  Voted “Best of NH” in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. 

Recommendations:  When my best friend and I first went here, we thought they only served wings, hence the name. Well we were wrong. While wings are their specialty, they have more than just wings. We each ordered separate flavors of wings. I had the Chipotle BBQ and my friend had the Chili Lime.  Both were delicious.
