Located in the heart of the vibrant historic district, the Portsmouth Gas Light Co. operates in the former home of the city’s first utility company. The building, which was built in 1837, has stood the test of time for over 170 years. Located on the main floor, the main restaurant opens weekdays at 11:30am and 11am on the weekends.
The main restaurant offers a varied menu including traditional pub items, including homemade clam chowder; wood-fire grilled burgers, chicken sandwiches and pizza; and a more upscale entrée menu including grilled chicken pasta and lobster stuffed haddock. In addition to a wide selection of food, the restaurant also features locally brewed draft beer and a boutique selection of wines.
Open during the warmer months (and weather permitting), Portsmouth Gas Light Co. also features an outdoor patio and deck. Enjoy a casual lunch with friends during the day and when the sun sets, live music begins most nights of the week. Portsmouth Gas Light Co. entertainment schedule.
