Our Portsmouth Area Ladies (PALS) went as a group. 14 of us went and enjoyed Pastor Sam's banter and wonderful food. Started with mini tostadas. Cute and tasty. Then on to a lovely vegetable filled tortilla soup. Then burritos filled with chicken and Chili Rellenos...MoreTess, We are so blessed to have you all come and enjoy our food! Thanks so much for the kind words.

Portsmouth Floodwall Mural

Reviewed By Peggy L - Dansville, New York, United States

We heard about the flood wall murals and thought it sounded interesting but we were surprised at how beautiful and detailed each one was. I found myself taking a photo of them all - there are 54 I believe. The other surprise is the size. Huge!

Greenup Locks and Dam PArk

Reviewed By GMB54 - St. Catharines, Canada

While visiting Portsmouth, Ohio and the surrounding area, my husband and I stopped by the Greenup Locks and Dam. My father’s side of the family used to have family reunions at this picnic area, and my visit brought back many wonderful memories. There are several picnic shelters, and the public washrooms were clean. I was, however, disappointed to find the viewing platform closed to the public and fenced off now. I suppose this was for security purposes, but I have many memories of watching barges pass through the locks.

Ghosts in the Attic

Reviewed By Rome M - Taylors, South Carolina

Whenever my wife and I are in the Portsmouth area, we go to the greatest shop downtown, Ghosts In The Attack.
We never leave empty-handed from there. I believe they have about 52 vendors and that gives you quite a bit variety. The prices are reasonable and the staff friendly.
If you love antiques, you need to go to Ghosts In The Attack.

Southern Ohio Museum

Reviewed By KetteringTraveler - Dayton, Ohio

The Southern Ohio Museum in Portsmouth has a great collection of Native American ("Indian") artifacts upstairs. The collection might be organized and labeled a bit better, but it is extremely well lit and the artifacts themselves (stone tools, copper bracelets, etc) are top quality.

The upstairs also features some rather strange art from a Portsmouth artist whose name I forget. A couple of his pieces were good.

Downstairs, in the main gallery, was miscellaneous art from Portsmouth artists. Some of it was good. I think the downstairs exhibits change constantly so by now it's probably something entirely new.

The museum has nice public bathrooms. The staff was friendly. The tiny gift shop had some nice stuff, including some whimsical animal figures, at prices that seemed high to this cheap Kettering resident.

Portsmouth Cinemas

Reviewed By Roger R - Piketon, Ohio

Visited on a Friday evening around 6pm. Watched KungFuPanda3 in 2-D with our two boys. There's really nothing negative that we experienced at this cinema. The seating was comfortable. The screen was large and the sound was good. Popcorn and soda was fresh and tasted good. Prices were within reasonable expectations. Parking was good. Bathrooms were conveniently located and they were clean. All the workers that I encountered were friendly.
I have read other reviews, mostly from Google, and was a bit cautious about visiting. Most of the reviews were very negative. But I really did not have issues at all. Very enjoyable time.
I will mention that the seating arrangement is a bit odd. We sat in theater 7 and there were probably 9 or 10 rows of seating. The first three were up front, separated by the walkway and then fourth row was wheelchair accessible. The remaining upper rows was only accessible from one side. So, if you sat in seat 16 on the right, you must walk the entire row to the left to enter/exit. Not very convenient for bathroom/snack runs in the middle of the movie for anyone in the entire row. Not sure why they designed it this way. Seems to be a bit of a fire hazard as well.
