​We are very grateful to our loyal customers, please tell us how we can improve your time here with us. Tell us what you would like to see that we may not offer at this time. In the Spring and Summer months, we look forward to serving you on our outdoor rooftop patio. This will be the perfect spot to host private parties, small business lunches or showers. 

Our restaurant & sports bar is located in the heart of downtown Dover, NH. Centrally located, you can easily get to us from any area in the seacoast. There is ample on street parking as well as nearby Third Street Train Station parking lot. Here's a map, but if you get lost, just give us a call and we'll tell you how to get here.
