Local Eats: The Martingale Wharf

Last night was date night! Double date night to be exact. It feels like forever since we’ve gone out to eat in Portsmouth, especially with friends, so last night felt even more special.

The bf and I headed downtown about 45 mins before we were scheduled to meet our friends & we grabbed some drinks and an appetizer outside on the deck. I’m not talking just any outdoor seating, the deck at the Martingale Wharf has the dreamiest views in town. They also have the coziest and chicest fire pit tables that keep you comfortable even when it gets chilly on the water. Sadly, they only had one of these tables out last night and we didn’t get there in time to get one. Looks like we’ll have to go back soon..



I had the rosé (dry only,  never sweet) and the bf had the usual- jack & ginger. In a strange turn of events, he ordered a salad as an appetizer and I ordered the french fries?


Definitely not my typical order, but somehow these fries are abnormally good. I probably don’t want to know why.. ignorance is bliss, right? Plus they come in a cute little basket so I feel like somehow this changes the fact that they’re still deep fried potatoes.

When my best friend (since 4th grade!) and her bf arrived, we got a table inside and continued drinking the date.


On one side of the restaurant, “the lounge”, the bar seats are right against the window and you feel like you’re hovering over the water. I don’t know what it is but there is just something about the water views here that I will never get enough of.

My go-to meal at the Wharf is the lobster roll, but last night the surf & turf caught my eye. And I was not disappointed.. I mean.. (I know, I know, more potatoes)


Everyone else’s food looked so delish too.


If you’re on the seacoast I highly recommend the Wharf for date night, lunch, or brunch!! (My favorite activity ever)

Or bonus: go to date night and then go back for brunch in the morning? You can’t beat a bloody mary here while enjoying these views. I’m telling you from experience ❤

I’m back.

So I did that thing that you’re not supposed to do. I had a blog since about… 2011? I would post a lot at the beginning and then fall off the wagon. For a while I was going strong and then a lot happened in life- graduated college, graduated again from graduate school, moved, started a new relationship, you name it- so I stopped posting completely.

Well here I am in 2017, living a totally different life. So I deleted every old post I had (gasp!) and decided to start from scratch. I just feel like I can use this platform for something different and I wanted a clean slate. I feel like some people think it’s morally wrong to delete old posts? Welllll, too bad.

Cheers to starting fresh!
