Sitting on the historic Bow Street in Portsmouth is The Surf Room, a charming brick building that reflects the deep history of the city. It’s a love space to host a wedding reception, and it’s steps away from the North Church of Portsmouth, which boasts the classic New England steeple. You and your guests can meander over to Bow Street after the ceremony, admiring the brick and colonial structures. When you arrive, you will stroll up the brick sidewalk entryway and be greeted by a spacious dining room with large windows letting in copious amounts of natural light and providing a stunning, 180-degree view of the Portsmouth Harbor. There’s also a private deck where and even better view awaits. You and your guests will enjoy fresh, hand-picked seafood brought up from the piers as you soak in the quaint, coastal ambience. Voted best seafood in New Hampshire, Surf Restaurant is sure to deliver a delicious and memorable experience.
