Thistle Pig

Reviewed By KenFoulger - Bristol, United Kingdom

Welcoming service and a reasonable menu choice. A concentration on local produce and flavoursome food. A fair range of craft beers, although quite expensive in my opinion. (Be prepared for uncushioned seats and benches).

Las Palmas

Reviewed By CarlGagnon - Sanford, ME

A group of us stopped by here last Saturday for some food and drink, and we were pleasantly surprised by the food quality, amount, and service. Our margaritas were tasty and with them being on sale as the Saturday special, even better. Had the burrito Mexicano as well as a few other plates, and food was fresh and plentiful. If you are in the Somersworth area, we highly recommend.

La Festa Brick & Brew Pizzaria

Reviewed By Frank D - Concord, New Hampshire

First time visit. Was not crazy about the cafeteria style of waiting in line to order food and beverages. Especially when it's busy and everyone, including staff are inpatient. The pizza was good. the Garlic and Cinnamon Knots were tasty. I'd pay extra for regular sit down table service. Good if you're in a hurry and not looking to relax.

Mayo's Family Restaurant

Reviewed By Coquille8 - Maine

I was literally blown into this little spot by 40 MPH gusts, one last (fingers crossed) gift from the memorable 2014-2015 Maine winter.

The lunch menu is slim, as their focus is clearly on great breakfasts. However, I am so glad I stopped in. The tuna salad club was wonderful, something I have never ordered anywhere (who has this?) before, and it was just the right thing.

My sister will love this place, and a good friend promises to go for breakfast soon, which I am certain we will enjoy.

It's unassuming, reasonable and good. What's not to like?

45 Market Street Bakery & Cafe

Reviewed By Maurene_K - Dover, New Hampshire

After exercising at my health club, I was looking to enjoy a cup of coffee out. I went to the 45 Market Street Market & Bakery & Café.

This place is just feet from the state line with Berwick, Maine. Someone with a decent throwing arm could hit the bridge separating Somersworth and Berwick with a snowball from the sidewalk in front of 45 Market Street. Being so close, the place draws a lot of patrons from Maine.

Inside, the décor is plain and simple, but it serves its purpose.

Service was excellent. The owner and counter gal are pleasant.

I had ½ a plain bagel and a medium coffee for $2.79. Both were perfect and hit the spot.

This café serves the awesome coffees from Carpe Diem Coffee Roasting Company from nearby North Berwick. I took a cup of the Colombian Decaf. I love Carpe Diem coffee. At home, I stock a bag of the Carpe Diem Indonesian Sumatra Mandheling which is decaffeinated by the Swiss Water Process.

I also bought two day old bagels at 50% off at 99 cents. The owner said that she baked the bagels fresh every day. I can vouch for the freshness. The one I had was like something straight from the oven. And, the day-old ones were fresher than any supermarket packaged bagels even when the last one was three days old. Some bagels are tough, but not these. They were soft and light but chewy enough so that they had the bagel texture.

One of her award-winning large pies was in the case. It was in $14.00 range. It looked delicious. There was also a variety of other baked goodies.

45 Market Street also serves breakfast and lunch items. The lunch items are mostly quiches. I plan to return for a quiche lunch at some future time.

Prices are very reasonable. It's a good place to stop by for a light meal or afternoon treat without straining one's budget

Fogarty's Restaurant

Reviewed By Jonmorse - North Berwick, Maine

15 family members went for a birthday party and everything was way above expectations. The service was very good, friendly and courteous. All the meals came out together and were hot and delicious. The menu has a large selection of meals and sandwiches, along with apps., salads and soups. There may be a short wait because this place is very popular but it is worth it.

Old Rail Pizza

Reviewed By Debbie R - Somersworth, New Hampshire

Here's another one of my reviews that might help if you love pizza. They're one of the best I've had around here, especially their cheese. You won't be sorry if you try it. Prices are fair and the people are really nice. Be sure to tip the drivers whereas it's not much of a family place, not enough room but don't let that deter you from getting your pizza delivered. The wait is pretty long but well worth it. Happy pizza eating.

Christopher's Third Street Grille

Christopher W. Lund, propriétaire/chef exécutif Steak, Fish and Seafood

Reviewed By Edgetech - Rochester, New Hampshire

This was our second visit to Christophers... Food still taste great!! My only gripe is that although the prices look reasonable, I don't think the portions really are.

My wife got Sweet Potato fries as an app and they were really good. I got the Hot Sausage Soup($5) which was AWESOME. It comes in just one size though and I would have loved a larger bowl. It's loaded with sausage and herbs. Just a little spicy. Tomatoes, a layer of tortilla chips and melted cheese on top.

For our lunch, my wife got the large Fresh Salad ($6). She added shrimp ($7) and it came with just four. And she added avocado ($2). So the salad cost $15. This was a little high considering what we have gotten at other restaurants. The portion was not that great. I had the French Connection ($8) which was thinly shaved Prime Rib on garlic bread with Swiss cheese on top and served with au jus. It came with fries and a pickle. The fries were good and crispy. Although it tasted AWESOME, it looked nothing like the pictures that I have seen on their website. There was not much meat in it at although... A little disappointed...

For us to leave a restaurant and my wife to say that she is still hungry does not happen very often. With one beer, the meal cost us $50. We visited another restaurant the night before and paid $54 (that included two beers) and left stuffed!! We will go back because the food was great. But we won't be regulars...
